Welcome to Topaz Nail Design.....
My name is Lisa Wightman and I am a Creative Nail Design, Master Nail Artist, based in South Shields, Tyne & Wear.
I have a dedicated nail studio in my home, which provides the perfect relaxing environment for all your hand and footcare needs. View photos here..... Salon PhotosI first got "into" nails through my love of art and the first course I passed was Nail Airbrushing design. This soon led to a passion for all things nails! From there I decided that if I was going to enter into the world of nails, that I would do so with the industry leader...."Creative Nail Design".
Their reputation within the industry for products, training and support is second to none, and their beautiful enhancements have graced the pages of many top magazines. Creative's commitment to the care of the natural nail is fundamental to their success. I do NOT want to apply products to your nail that are detrimental to the health of your nails and skin. My job is to make what Mother Nature gave you more pleasing to the eye AND healthier.
Although I currently have 12 certificates from "Creative Nail Design" and attained my Master qualification in Liquid and Powder in 2007, I am committed to a programme of continual learning. If you ever read on my site that I am unavailable for a couple of days due to training, this does not mean that I do not currently have adequate training. This means that I believe that the nail industry is constantly changing and evolving and the only way I can offer the best service to you, is to enrol on many and varied courses to ensure that YOU get the most up to date products, services and information available. I envisage taking refresher courses throughout my whole career, not because I need to have further education, but, that I owe it to you as a client to give you the best!

Shellac from CND - The no chip 14 day manicure.....
The latest thing in manicures is available now at Topaz Nail Design
Shellac paints on like polish – base coat, colour, top coat – and is cured in a UV light so there is zero dry time. The colours are hypo-allergenic, and “3-Free” – no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. Shellac will launch in a range of shades, from pretty French pinks and whites, to siren red and rich darks. The formula is thin and flexible like polish, so it not only looks natural, it provides strong natural nail protection with a resilient mirror finish that resists dullness and chipping, even during the most rigorous activities.
As amazing as Shellac is on, removal is just as satisfying! No soaking, drilling or filing is necessary. Nails are wrapped in individual Shellac Remover Wraps -integrated cotton pads that limit finger and skin exposure to acetone by keeping it pinpointed on just the nail. Ten minutes of time in exchange for two weeks of perfect colour is all it takes. Say good-bye to manicure frustration and hello to pure manicure satisfaction.
Not only are there the obvious benefits of no chipping or peeling for at least 2 weeks, but you leave the salon with 100% dry polish. This means you can have Shellac applied in your lunch hour and go back to work with no fear of spoiling your manicure! You can go straight home and do your gardening or housework. In the winter, when applied to your toes, no going home in flip flops so your toes get frostbite, just put your socks and shoes straight on. This really is a revolutionary product, see what others are saying.....
