What our Students Have to Say...

I was born & raised in Alberta; I made the decision to move out to the BC coast. While I was adapting to my new life away from my family, my mother Alice Dayton had made a career change from hairstylist to nail technician. She had taken her training through A Nail Above the Rest and within no time she had mastered her new skills. Mom was ready for a climate change so I managed to convince her to move to the coast so we could start our own business and The Coastal Nail Studio was the beginning of my new career! We had the opportunity for A Nail Above the Rest to travel to our location and train our employees. They definitely have supported us throughout our years in this industry. Everyday I’m inspired to create beautiful images on my client’s nails and enjoy my profession. With my artistic abilities over the years Tipz by Jenn was featured in the nail art portion of Nail Pro Magazine twice and I am proud to be recognized from one of the top Canadian Gel Manufactures as an Amore Ambassador! - Jennifer Dayton of Tipz By Jenn
