Career Insights: Marian Newman BEM speaks with Elizabeth Barnett Lawton

by | Jun 11, 2021

In this week’s episode, our Pillar President, Education, Elizabeth Barnett Lawton, talks to British Beauty Council Advisory Board Member Marian Newman BEM, UK leading nail expert and European Brand Ambassador for CND.

Having always been science focused, Marian started her career as a forensic scientist at the Metropolitan Police. Marian explains that after having her first child, she left the Met to pursue a career in behavioural therapy.

It was only when her third child was born, that Marian took interest in the nail universe, which at the time was a very small and unexplored industry. Marian saw the opportunity to combine her love for science and teaching to create cutting-edge nail art. It goes without saying that Marian’s outstanding skills led her to becoming one of the world’s most reputable session manicurists and educator, collaborating with the biggest names in fashion including Nick Knight and Alexander McQueen.
