*****The Ugly Duckling team have been wonderful in answering my many questions. The level of support and friendliness is truly amazing, particularly for a new tech like myself. The products live up to the claims from the beautiful brushes to the fab Ugly Duckling gel polishes; and if that's not enough, they all come packaged in the most gorgeous packaging I've seen! Great product & superior customer support are two things I value as a new tech, and this company delivers on all fronts! -SUSAN LECERF (facebook review)

***** I felt compelled to write you after having met Christina & Natasha and having taken their class at the Nail Masters Canada show. For me, what propelled me to fly from Toronto to Saskatoon was the Opportunity to meet and learn from the little Ducklings!
*****I discovered Yvonne, Christina, and Natasha at a time 3 years ago when I had almost given up on the nail industry. I was at a stand still with my skill level and very disheartened by the level of competitiveness in the beauty world.It was very hard for me to find a company or educator who's MAIN goal was to help you improve and encourage you to compete with only yourself. So many others looked at me like a dollar sign and I could feel the vibes. But with Ugly Duckling the vibe was very different... and I noticed it instantly.
By taking just one course with them, my confidence improved to the point where I felt comfortable charging what I was worth. My skill level improved to the point where now difficult nail beds are my favorite as opposed to fearing them.
Christina Cronk is a master educator and she stands up to the name. Her teaching methods are very thorough yet relaxed which is very ideal for someone with test anxiety such as myself.
I have watched the Dynamic Duo teach a few times and they make sure everyone feels included and are always making the room laugh ( mostly at their own expense ) it's an amazing environment to learn new art skills as Natasha Harton and Christina Cronk give it all they've got because your success is TRULY their reward
The day that got my first shipment of Ugly Duckling nail supplies in the mail felt like Christmas. From the brushes filled with Swarovski crystals, the adorable chic polish bottles, and sleek black acrylic jars. I was hooked on the look! ( as are my clients). When it was time to try the product out it was obvious why this product came in premium packaging. The acrylic was extremely easy to apply! The gel polish is incredibly pigmented and works so well for art! my favorite item so far is the matte top coat... I had tried several different ones and I was starting to give up hope. Then Ugly Duckling came along!
The best part about the Ugly Duckling product is the people who decide what to add to the line also do nails on a daily basis. I like this because they use the product themselves and they know what we need. Too many company's these days make a product because it's popular or makes money without even testing it or knowing how to use it.
I feel that in so many ways Ugly Duckling was the right choice for me because they believe in Quality over Quantity and our success is truly their reward.
I finally found a product line that is perfectly balanced with beauty on the inside and out. They helped an ugly duckling such as myself blossom into a talented acrylic tech. And I am forever great full ♡ -KARLEE VAN MILL
