The founder and heart behind the Athens Nails Academy & Salon training center is Ms. Sandy Politou, one of the best educators and nail artists in Greece & a renowned professional in the field of nail art. She holds the top title of International Master Educator and is certified as a national educator of BRiLLBIRD Hellas.
This successful career is the result of many years of devotion to this field. Her first acquaintance with the industry, in 2009, was the start of a very creative course. For the following years, Sandy Politou, seeking to get further education and training, participated in many seminars by prominent educators in Greece and abroad, which offered her valuable knowledge and experience. Specifically, in her ten-year career, Sandy has been trained by top nail artists, such as Anita Podova, Barbara Ujvari, Victoria Horvath-Kousi, Corinne Di Battista, Valentina Denisenko, Svetlana Surkova, Nikoleta Ban, Bettina Marton, Krisztina Kalmar, Sandor Marianna, Leon Cabriales, Elena Popova, Alexandra Lust, Elena Shanskaya, Kostka Bojana and other renowned professionals in the industry.
In 2011, at the encouragement of Viktoria Horvath-Kousi, she participated in the 19th Pan-Hellenic Professional Nail Design Competition “BEAUTY GREECE” and was awarded the first prize. In the years that followed, her participations in international competitions, such as the top event “Beauty European Nail Cup - 24th Beauty Forum Munich” and the “European masters’ Award Nail Design” in Munich, increased, as did her awards. In 2012, in the 20th Pan-Hellenic Professional Nail Design Competition “BEAUTY GREECE”, she won the 2nd place. Two further distinctions in the same competition followed, the 2nd and 3rd place, in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
Her international distinctions, culminating in the title of International Master Educator, marked her next professional step. Thus, in 2013 she was selected as the exclusive representative and official educator of BRiLLBIRD Hellas - Cyprus and she founded the POINT OF BEAUTY school with a group of partners, starting her professional career as nail art educator.
In September 2019, Sandy started her own business, Athens Nails Academy & Salon, a high-standard, extremely neat and cozy center housed in a recently renovated building, at 19 Kerasountos Street, Egaleo (near the metro station). On the ground floor is the Nail Salon, where top nail and eyelash care and beauty services are provided (manicure & pedicure, simple or semi-permanent, artificial nails, lash lift, prosthetic eyelashes) and on the 1st floor Courses and Training Seminars for future Nail Artists & Technicians are offered (Academy).
