Tell us a little bit about yourself!
"My birthday is April 6th, I'm a 90s baby! My grama always called me Bizzy Lizzy because my middle name is Elizabeth. I also have some that call me Cooey because my friends daughter couldn't say Courtney and it stuck, that's my fav nick name! My favorite food is probably Shabu Shabu (which is a Japanese dish and basically just boiled beef and veggies haha"
How did you get into the nail business? How long has it been? What do you like best about the nail industry?
"I started doing my own nails in my early 20s. The more I looked at other nails online the more obsessed I got with nail art! I remember being up until 2am every night doing my nails or looking at new ideas on what to do. I took a nail tech course shortly after, and an esthetics course after that in 2013, but still would rather focus on nails.
What I love about the nail industry is how fast everything moves. There is always a new trend or product or color, it's always fun to see the new things trends and challenge myself to try and do them and make them my own. I also love my squad! Not all techs are as nice as these ladies have been and I love that we all share tips and tricks and help each other out."
When you are not doing nails, what are your top 3 hobbies?
"Netflix & kids & snacks! I have an 8 year old and an almost 2 year old so it's always pretty busy. I love having a movie on or show that I can play through. Have some snacks on hand to keep my hands busy. In spring & summer I love to be outside!"
How did you hear of BSG and when?
"I saw BSG pop up in my explore page on IG. It was a giveaway and I was looking into other gel brands so I entered and happened to win! I was immediately HOOKED. My first color was 200 Beach Babe!"
What do you like best about our products?
"I love that the UNITY line doesn't need a base or top coat. With 2 kids and one being a toddler, sometimes I just don't have time to go through 3 steps and I don't have to worry about risking quality nails when I use a UNITY color for a quick mani. I also love that the colors are so pigmented and perfect for art. Nothing worse than having to try and go over fine lines to make them darker!"
What is your personal favourite BSG colour?
"Oh boy, I think I'd have to go with 172 Toffee, but it's so hard to pick just one!"
Show us your top 3 favourite nails you’ve done with BSG!
If you could create your own BSG colour, what colour would it be and what will you name it?
"I'm a glitter lover so I would have to make a glitter that's like the super trendy Galaxy glitter, but better. And I would name it...Courtney in the Sky With Diamonds. Hahaha"
Any tips or guidance you can offer for new nail techs?
"Don't ever ever EVER give up! Social media can be such a negative place, and sometimes it might feel like you aren't where you want to be. But you will get there! Practice anything you're not 100% happy with. Reach out to people you love for tips and tricks they might share. Some might become great long distance friends!"
Thank you all for taking the time to read our blog, and thank you Courtney for spending some time with me to answer the interview questions! It was a blast getting to know you better. Have a great birthday! Love, your BSG Momma.
