About me

Hi, I’m Sam and welcome to TGB Academy here in Lincoln.

I have been in the beauty/nail industry since leaving school at 16, I worked in a busy spa for 2 years straight from college where I gained experience with lots of different treatments and brands and then decided to go self-employed and rent a room in my local village where I have been for the last 8 years, I quickly realised that my most popular treatment was gel nails!

I discovered The Gel Bottle last year and it’s completely changed my nail game! I have so much passion for my job again and absolutely love what I do again thanks to this brand! My clients love it and my business has increased massively since bringing it to my salon. I decided I wanted to be an educator and share my passion for nails and this fabulous product as it is by far the best product I have ever used.

I hope by bringing TGB courses to other nail technicians they too can love what they do and get a real passion for their work and love doing NAILS!
I continually do training courses myself to better my knowledge within the industry so I can better educate my students too.

If you have any questions please give me shout and I look forward to teaching you all very soon.




About training venue

I will be running my courses from my salon located in Saxilby, a small village just 6 miles outside the city of Lincoln Lincolnshire. On-site I have 5 parking spaces, however, if these are full, there is plenty of parking out the front on the road free of charge.

There is access to WC facilities and drinks such as coffee, tea, water and squash will be provided on the day however lunch will not so please either bring your own or there is a coop near enough opposite where you will be able to purchase this.

My salon is located at no 94 high street, Saxilby, Lincoln, LN12HG, as you turn right off of the main A57 into Saxilby coming from Lincoln town centre direction, take your first left into the village, follow that road all the way along and you will pass a coop on your right-hand side, I am then on the left a little further up before the road starts to bend around. There is a sign at the bottom of the gravel driveway that says The Haven Beauty, as my salon is attached to someone’s house I ask that you park in the driveway sensibly in the bays provided, the salon is located within the garage conversion with the door to reception located at the left-hand side of the garage building.

All course and kit payments will be paid directly to The Gel Bottle Inc before your course date and your kits will be sent directly to me ready for when you arrive, you will, however, need to provide your own LED lamps at 48W or above and your own EFile if attending the EFile course, Models will be needed if attending the Gel Bottle Beginners or Full Gel Bottle Course provided by yourself, they will be needed in the afternoon for the practical part of your course and I will get in touch with exact times nearer your course dates. I may be able to find models on the occasions if you cannot find one of your own so please get in touch if you need one. For all other courses, you will be working on training hands provided by myself.

After your course is complete you will have the opportunity to look through my TGB Gel colour book and be able to place orders at a further 5% discount on top of any offers currently running over on The Gel Bottle Inc website, you should receive your order within 10 working days.

I’ve recently done a conversion course with Sam . Sam is amazing I felt very comfortable with her and her venue is beautiful. Sam is very passionate about her love for the gelbottle brand and shared as much information as she possibly could ! I gained so much more from the course and was definitely more in depth than my original training . Sam is always at hand if I need advice on products ect . I k ow you can just buy gel bottle but if you want the best from the products do the course with Sam ! I’ll look forward to doing more courses in the future .

I had my efile training with Samantha which I really enjoyed. Samantha’s very professional and knowledgeable and I know training with her on any of her training courses I’d learn well. I know if there’s any training I require in the future I’ll be back! She was very patient and answered all the questions well. Definitely recommended and it started the beginning of my Gel Bottle journey and efile training perfectly.

I completed the gel bottle efile course with Samantha today 16/7/18. Samantha is very easy to get along with made you feel relaxed at the same time being very professional. Was at hand to answer any queries no matter how small was extremeley patient and a vsry good teacher. I was petrified using an efile for the first time but given the trsining and tios of good drill bits to use left feeling alot more confident and not scared to build my prsctice ising an efile now. Thanks for all ur trsining help and support today. If i need anymore training will definitely go to Samantha was a lovely surrounding and atmosphere
