About Us

Asu Nail & Beauty Supplies / Training Academy opened its doors in August 2009 and is the home of Astonishing Nails and Nfu.Oh Nail Creations in Ireland. We run 25 different courses, 20 of which specialise in nails including Astonishing Nails gel and acrylic, advanced gel and acrylic courses designed for those with 6 months plus experience, Bling, Glitter, Glam Nail Design and many others.

We pride ourselves on having the largest team of educators in Ireland located nationwide. We regularly provide in-house training for our educators so that they can bring you the latest techniques and products available to the nail industry. Our team also travel abroad to upskill and improve their educator certificates. As recently as November 2010 a team returned from The Netherlands with 5 new Global Educators and 2 new higher level Professional Educators.

Our Education Director of Ireland is Suzanne Alcock Thompson. Suzanne has many years experience in Education and has travelled to many countries both training and competing, winning over 20 industry awards, with the most prestigious being ‘Irish National Nail Technician 2007-2008’. She is well respected within the nail industry, a testament to this being the fact that she has been asked to judge a number of nail competitions in the UK and Ireland. She is well known for her meticulous judging style. She demands quality and consistency in our education and wants to exceed expectations in education and support.

Our General Manager John Thompson has over 16 years experience in the supply and distribution areas of the beauty industry. John has now decided to direct his talents into his own venture, Asu Nail & Beauty Supplies, where he prides himself on first class customer service and in bringing you new and exciting products that will renew your passion and excitement for the nail industry.

In the past year the company has gone from strength to strength and has been involved in a number of innovative and original events that keep striving to push the nail industry forward.
