Serena Wilkins (Ambassador Hawkesbay)

Serena's nickname is ‘Pinky’! She love all things pink, sparkles and nails! Her passion for nails turned from a hobby into a full-time career! Serena is an internationally trained, award winning published nail tech who is passionate about all thing’s nails!  I started out doing my own nails in 2013 after being a client for the previous 10 years. My passion for nail art grew quickly, and I started doing nails part time in 2016, whilst working a full-time retail managers job. In March 2017 I became qualified in gel polish and in November 2017 she went full-time in her home salon, “Glitter & Gloss Nail Art Studio”.

Serena has never looked back since – taking that leap of faith was scary at the time but it’s been oh so rewarding!  In 2018 she travelled to Canada to complete a week-long course with top educator Suzie Moskal and has also done training with other top international nail artists/educators including Sarah Elmaz, Viv Simmonds, Max Estrada.

In June 2020 Serena co-founded the Nail Central Facebook group for Nail Professionals, which is a support group for New Zealand and International Nail Technicians and Professionals.  In 2022 we held our first stand-alone Nail Central Nail Expo with huge success!  We are currently planning the next one for 2024, and plan to hold these regularly in the future!  

I can’t wait to have lots of fun working with the amazing NZNA team!
