Crystal Clawz

Crystal Clawz East Rand Johannesburg Distribution


Crystal Clawz was born about 18 years ago after Jennifer Ley Miller qualified as a Nail Technician. Being more than a touch arty, she went further afield for additional training in airbrush nail art at the Mark Anthony Institute in the UK.

In 2004 she started up her own training school, Crystal Clawz Nail Academy, and have seen a lot of ladies going through her doors as qualified nail technicians and nail artists.

High quality and affordability are NOT the only focus for Crystal Clawz. We have all seen too many nails damaged by chemicals and NAIL HEALTH is a major focus in our product range and we only offer products that will not damage healthy nails, and will, in fact, strengthen natural nails that need a little help. You won’t find any bonders or primers in our range – we have 2 very good reasons for this – firstly, it protects the nails from excessive chemical treatment, and secondly, it saves time and product cost.

We are more than proud to put our name to the range that is on offer on this website because we know they are all fantastic products that perform! As new products arrive in the market, and as we expand our supplier base,  we will add many more fantastic nail products and accessories that will delight you, save you time and money and, most importantly, keep your customers coming back for more.

Thanks for reading and enjoy shopping!

Welcome letter from Karin Bouwer

My motto – Career, Educate and Passion is beautiful when they come together!

When I did my first nail course in 1998 I knew that I wanted to make a career out of doing nails. Having a successful modelling agency, modelling school and beauty salon, I soon came to realize that I had to share my passion for doing nails with other aspiring nail technicians. I therefor did my first Educators course in 2010 and have been sharing my passion for nails since then.

I was extremely privileged to have been trained by three International Educators and have received my Educators certificates in 2010, 2015, 2019 and 2021 with various brands as an International trainer.

I also competed in Professional Beauty nail competitions and received a 2nd place in Gel Sculpting in 2014 and a Second place in Acrylic Sculpting in 2017.

Joining the Crystal Clawz team, has definitely been a highlight in my career. The Academy is open to anyone who would want to pursue a career in Nail Technology, improving their skills and nail art training.

Driven by our passion – Motivated by Yours!
