Joanna always loved nail art and for few years was learning to develop her skills in that direction. She attended nail courses in Poland, UK and Netherlands. Joanna won many nail competitions (national and international). Including Highly Commended (2017, 2019, 2020) best training academy of the year award also first place as the trainer of the year in 2022 at Irish Beauty Awards.
