Scratch chats to top tech Andreea Simona Ignat…
Tell us about your training…
I initially trained in Romania, and since moving to London I trained with a number of nail experts including David Fowler, Kostka Bojana, Madelene Wolf, Jana Duzanec, Oana Flutur, Anda Pamfile and many more. I’m looking forward to training with a number of other amazing technicians that make this industry so big and beautiful.
What are your favorite products?
I use a variety of brands for my nail creations but recently, I’ve been enjoying working with Jana Nails products.
Who do you admire in the industry?
There are so many incredible techs with different skills and I have learnt something from every tech I’ve trained with. I also really admire the work of Katie Barnes, Marian Newman and Tracy Lee.
What designs do you love to create?
As long as my client loves their finished nail design, I’m happy, but the basis to any great nail look is a smooth and sound structure, so I focus on that first and foremost. I’m open to using any technique to create the desired design, but I really enjoy sculpting extreme shapes.
What are your next steps?
I am currently enrolled on a course to help me teach others the skills to thrive in this wonderful industry, and I hope to enter and win competitions such as the Scratch Stars Awards, NailPro Romania, Nailympia Londonand more.
