~A little about me~
Hello and Welcome.
I'm Jerilee, the face behind the nails
Until recently you may also have known me by the name Frenchys Nail Boutique.
I have a friendly home based salon focusing on Natural nail health,
specialising in nail art and education.
A quick few facts about me
I have 3 Beautiful Daughters.
I'm a sucker for a good Disney film
I once took a week long trip around the South Island dressed as a Pirate.
I love to Sing (and dream of joining a band)
and Red is always my go to nail colour.
Nails have become something far larger than anything I dared to dream of.
I will forever be thankful to the friends that I have made and the wonderful opportunities that I have had.
I started my nail Journey in 2012 but it wasn't until after I found Nail Competitions in 2015 that I came to realise this entire other world existed. A world that has lead me on the most amazing adventure. I've now competed in NZ, Australia and America and I am both humbled and honoured to have had Success with these experiences.
Although I'm pretty sure I grossly underestimated my ability to gain a Nail Career and balance my mum life, it hasn't slowed me down (much) and My Passion for this Industry has only grown with my children.
I am Proud to share that I recently qualified as a Nail Judge and a short time ago I teamed up on a photoshoot for the fabulous Get Hitched in Hawkes Bay collective, helping promote wedding tourism within our region.
I really love being involved in all things creative and like to surround myself with like minded Girl Bosses, so attending any and all nail or business related classes is a no brainer.
For me it is important to grow and adapt in this ever changing industry, whether it be in nail art or chemistry.
I vow to always hold myself to the highest standard, not only for my clients but for the Industry I love.
