Catherine Wong NailQueen

In 2002, I left my corporate job to start my own nail distribution business carrying leading brands such as Ezflow/Entity/NfuOh/Akzentz/ONS and provided nail education and competition training by collaborating with the best nail educators, nail champions and reputable manufacturers in the nail industry. I’ve trained, won and judged competitions internationally, built an award winning team of educators, mentored many successful nail artists during my 15 years of full time career in the nail industry. Between 2011-2014, I’ve published 7 coffee table nail books and 3 nail art instruction books sold internationally. The nail business has given me the opportunity to host 2 seasons of Global Nail Cup competition in Malaysia and I've travelled extensively to teach nail art classes privately as well as in trade shows worldwide. My nail artworks have been published in leading trade magazines in Asia, USA, Canada, Mexico, UK and Europe. In 2014, I had the opportunity to collaborate with the UK Scratch magazine as a contributor to the VIVCAT nail art column for the entire year. In the past year, Mylably has enabled me to reach out to students all over the world online and I am very happy to be able to continue my passion for nails and share my experience and techniques in the classes that I will be developing specifically for Mylably students under this new platform!
