Turn your passion into a business like student Nancy Holloway!

Turn your passion into a business like student Nancy Holloway!

Nancy Holloway, a student in Essex, is making the most out of her passions by turning them into a business!

At 17, she’s set to start her foundation course in Art and Design in preparation for a Graphic design degree as well as running an Etsy store to earn some money!

Her shop (Pick ‘n’ Mix Nails) sells hand crafted false nails in a variety of awesome designs. The thing that really sets the store aside is that instead of buying a pack of 10, you can buy the nails as individuals.



For just £1, you can choose which nail you want in what design to create an awesome contrast design or a set of 10 of your favourites for £9.50! With worldwide shipping, this straight to your door manicure is a must visit for those who want to stand out from the crowd!

Nancy’s passion is art and design and that’s only been strengthened by work experience at various design companies.

When we asked Nancy “Why false nails?” she replied :

I always liked the fact that you could make art so intricate. That's why nail art appealed to me, however in the salons where I live the nail art is so uninspiring and tacky - and expensive! So I decided to create my own nails that were cool, personal and different. I knew there were some nail salons in London that had amazing designs, but I didn't feel that they were accessible and affordable for everyone so I wanted to create an Etsy shop that could ship worldwide and send people personalised manicures to their door.

Lucky for us, Nancy sent us a sample of a few of her favourites!
