Meet the Education Team
Hello and Welcome,
I am Amy Masters, I am a Multi-Award Winning Licensed
Nail Technician for 28 years and more energized than ever.
Opened my first salon Perfect 10 Nail Studio in 1992. Featured as a 1998 finalist in Worlds Top Tech and over the years published in multiple international articles, blogs and magazines. I take pride in assisting with updating laws, being a motivational speaker along with developed new techniques including Genre to offer another option for nail enhancing. I became an Independent Consultant when I saw the need for proper and detailed ongoing education. I offer online international workshops and 1.2.1 online training available on thenailsouce.biz.
I am admin of Tech Talk Worldwide where I do live tutorials and host the popular online Tech Talk "Live" interview show. In 2018 I was invited to join Light Elegance as an Educator, Ambassador for Nailchemy,
Inspirer and Promoter for many distributors.
Creator of The Nail Source premiere online forum for ongoing Nail Education, Masters Planner and Master Mindset Mondays, Co-Boss of Jumpstart your Nail Business Free for nail techs, Co-Boss of VIVIFY your nail business.
This career is very rewarding and can be profitable if you know how to showcase your best skills and your portfolio. I look forward to sharing my nerdy nail knowledge and techniques with you!
My name is Anita Hug-Jones co founder of thenailsource.biz
I have been a nail tech for over 28 years!! Wow! I started my career as a master tech for CND, which led me to Jan Arnold inviting me to headquarters to work on upcoming launches. I then had the privilege to spend time with Doug Schoon, to begin testing new products to be released (wow did i learn alot from him!).
The following years I began to chase my dream of competing for nails, where I was asked to join Odyssey nail system competition team. Working with the world champion Trang Nuuyen, this is where I received the best education of my life! This also led me to one of the highlights of my career, landing on Nail Pro Magazine as Top 20 nail techs in the nation.
Through the years I have worked with many companies such as CND Young Nail, ONS, Star Nail, Cuccio, Revel Dipping Systems, & Joya Mia. Through them I became an educator later leading me to open my distributor store
BEAUTY BIZ Supply house.
I currently own Domani Day Spa, my home for the past 20 years. Recognized as business Women of the Year & the first nail spa to win top local business for 40 under 40!Through all my experience in the beauty industry my passion lies with teaching and helping technicians get the latest and greatest nail industry products.
My daily goal is to help everyone here at thenailsource.biz to be motivated, inspired & elevated in the beauty industry!

Hello, I am Karen and my passion
is all things Nails and Social Media.
I qualified in 2004 as a nail tech but after a long break from
the industry I came back in October 2017
and haven’t looked back!
Mum of 3 boys ranging from 4 to 13,
I also enjoy a spot of ice skating as an
Ice Dancer in my “spare” time so I know how precious
every minute can be when you’re running your own business.
Having a really strong presence online and utilising you’re time
wisely is my advice to all techs out there!
