Those who can...teach

Learn how with the Skullen Girl Gang

Skullen came from pretty humble beginnings & we like to think we’re living proof of what can be achieved by fierce women, determined to make their mark. Developed in 2013 from our front room, we’re now the leading creative nail art studio in the north east with a team of unique & dedicated artists.

Sharing is caring though right? So we like to spread the knowledge we’ve picked up over the last nine years. If you are serious about changing the way you live & work, we have the experience to push you on. It doesn’t just end when you leave the studio mind, we continue to offer support & guidance as your nail art begins to catch light.

We’re dead canny like.

Here's what we offer

“Thank you Nicole for an information packed and fun 2 days. I feel like you’ve taught me so many techniques that I can hopefully now put into practice.
Thank you for making me feel at ease and for all of your great advice and tips.”

“Just wanted to drop a note to say I had a great time at the course on Saturday. Nic was great, really patient and did a great job teaching. Her and the girls are so lucky to do that for work, it was fun learning the styles we did, I found it really relaxing and the time went by so quick.”
