A mum-of-two disappointed with the quality of nail treatment she had has found the best solution by doing it herself.

Trish Lowe is ready for her business, Jello Nails and Beauty, to take a step forward after moving into a new and ground-breaking commercial development in Long Sutton.

The nail and beauty business has taken one of the seven premises at CaNeBuZo (carbon neutral business zone) in Hoddins Way, off Gedney Road.

Trish, who works alongside fellow nail and beauty technician Rebecca Neve, said: “I worked in finance at a sports and leisure company in London and Essex for about 12 years, but I also had an interest in massaging.

“One day, I decided to get my nails done but it turned into the most expensive set of nails ever.

“Firstly, I had to go somewhere else to have them fixed and then pay to have them done again properly.

“It was then that I got chatting to someone about courses in nail treatment, so I ended up paying for that and the kit to go with it as well.”

Trish, who lives with her family in Gorefield, between Sutton St Edmund and Wisbech, has built up a healthy client base with customers coming from Holbeach, Spalding, March and Wisbech.

But with Rebecca on board and having moved onto the CaNeBuZo site almost two weeks ago, Trish is hoping to attract clients from Long Sutton, Sutton and the surrounding area as well.

“I started and ran the business from my home six years ago but as I’ve expanded the list of treatments offered, running Jello Nails and Beauty from home wasn’t feasible anymore.

“My friend told me about CaNeBuZo and I loved it as soon as I saw it.

“It was quirky and different, without me even realising that it was energy-efficient as well.

“My clients like the salon, with its homely feel, relaxing atmosphere, light and airy appearance and it’s so much better than working from home.”

Rebecca, of Sutton St Edmond, said “I was recommended to Trish by someone we both knew and I do like working with her because she’s lovely and so easy to get along with.”
