The Vu Crew
Director / Educator
It wasn’t a galaxy faraway; it was the corner of the kitchen table.
So here’s the thing when I finished a set of nail extensions on my very first paying client (4 hours later) did I think I would have a successful salon, a training academy, my own brand of professional
We’ll let me tell you with a 4 & 7 year old and a hubby who works away - no I didn’t… but there was always a niggle, cogs turning whilst sitting in the car waiting for dance or football to finish.

Before I knew it our empire was building.
Naming the first co-owned salon ‘Surreal’ clearly had more than one meaning.
The new generation, my very own salon.

Creative Director / Educator
I started in the Industry in 2003, my first qualifications with LCN 3 Phase Gel and Ez-flow Acrylic.
My favourite products - Vu Nail Systems Gel & Acrylic and Elemis Skincare
My favourite technique / treatment - Even though my day to day work is Gel based, my heart will always be with Acrylic, I love working with it and creating formed sculptures.
My favourite nail colour - I will always gravitate towards Greens & Purples so my favs are Cucumber Sorbet, Key Lime Pie and Ube by Vu Nail Systems
My career ambition & vision - I'm happy where I am in the industry, I enjoy my job and love teaching budding nail techs
My Inspirations with in the industry - Definitely Mrs Tracy Nash, Director of Vu Nail Systems, watching someone manage a successful salon, create & launch a nail brand plus a training academy whilst being a Mum, wife and friend.
Outside of work I have a passion for painting, I am addicted to home learning but top of the list is going on holidays; as many as possible.
Creative Nail Artist
I’ve been a member of The Vu Crew since the beginning, considering my mum is the lovely lady that owns it! I followed in my mum’s footsteps when I was around 16 and discovered I had a love for nails and creativity within nails. I completed my training with Vu Nail Systems and have worked my way up within the industry and now have a fantastic client base who trust me to create bespoke designs on their nails.
Alongside nails and beauty I also have a passion for Musical Theatre, as well as owning my own Children’s Entertainment business. The saying ‘no rest for the wicked’ tends to sit well with me!
I love being a part of the team here at RJ Vu, working with my mum and the people that have watched me grow as both a nail technician and a person is very fulfilling. I’m excited to see where my journey takes me next and look forward to continuing to grow as a nail artist.
