‘Antonia’s nail career was born of a natural thirst to know more after receiving her first (and only!) manicure in a local salon. Antonia went on to train in all things nails and soon realised that she had a passion and flair for natural nail care and hand painted gel polish nail art. Since then, she has been nominated for the ‘Natural Nail Specialist of the Year’ Scratch Stars Award three times and is part of celebrity manicurist Marian Newman’s award winning ‘Nail Team of the Year’; a role which sees her tending to the nails of models and celebrities at photo shoots and Fashion Weeks worldwide.
A self-confessed nail nerd, Antonia has always been passionate about continuing her learning and expanding her knowledge and is particularly passionate about maintaining and improving the health of the natural nail. Antonia’s motto – “Healthy nails are the prettiest nails!”.
This passion for learning extends to educating others and busting common nail myths, so the Lecenté Educator role is a dream come true for Antonia, allowing her to share her knowledge and ensure that others in the industry are well equipped to deal with many a nail issue! Knowledge is power after all!’
