Birthday Tech!

Sarah Kempton

Sarah Kempton of Atheva Beauty, Worcester, has two years’ experience in the nail industry and celebrates her birthday on 25 April, falling under the Taurus star sign.

“The main thing I love about being a nail tech is my clients. They are all wonderful and it’s it great feeling to see them so happy with their finished nail style,” she reveals. “I love doing nail art both on clients and myself. It brings me so much joy!”

General traits for Taureans include being logical, generous, trustworthy, determined and understanding. “These are great treats in both everyday life and as a nail tech,” Sarah comments. “Being logical helps with my nail art as I try to make it as easy as possible and break down designs to achieve the same desired effect each time. My generosity is demonstrated in my glitter application; I love to see nails sparkle! I would never have imagined two years ago that I would be a fully booked pro with a waiting list. I work so hard to learn and perfect new techniques and am determined to feel confident in my work and make my clients feel fabulous.”
