Katie Felstead - Fashion Director - Glass Magazine
Former Beauty Editor - British Vogue
I have had the pleasure to work with Nickie on many occasions and I’m always inspired by both her creatively and work ethic. She has the ability to take a brief and move it laterally into into another creative sphere, often one that the team hadn’t previously considered. Nickie is very professional, but also exudes warmth which is integral to working as part of a team in a pressured environment. The fashion and beauty world, be it editorial or advertising is very fast paced and Nickie is able to adapt her work to this and the brief, while always remaining calm under pressure and a pleasure to work with. She is always my first port of call for a manicurist for my shoots.

Nickie worked with us on one our our biggest shows at the Victoria & Albert Museum, she was an invaluable member of our team and brought a great deal of passion and creativity to her role. Across the large cast of models all the nails looked immaculate.
Kim Howells - Fashion Director - Hunger Magazine
I have had the pleasure of working with Nickie Rhodes-Hill for a number of years now and would regard her as my go to nail technician for all creative projects including Hunger Magazine, where I am Fashion Director.
Nickie's positive, enthusiastic energy is always welcomed on set along with her well considered and exciting design ideas. Nickie really understands fashion, colours, materials and lighting and this broad range of knowledge, experience and understanding make her a valuable member of my collaborative team.

“We asked Nickie to come and work with our make-up team backstage at the L'Oréal Colour Trophy 2016. There were four separate shows with over 50 models all requiring nail work! Nickie was incredibly professional from start to finish, she immediately interpreted the brief from each of the show teams and worked quickly, efficiently and calmly from morning to night!”

I have been working in the fashion industry for the last 10 years, and Nickie makes the day so much brighter with her creativity, positivity and attention to detail. The craft of her work is shown in her consistency and quality - and every shoot we work together on is an absolute pleasure. I think it’s really important that you work with people who are both reliable and passionate about what they do - and Nickie has both qualities.
As Creative Director of Hunger Magazine and as a Film Director, Nickie has provided some excellent work - and we’ll continue to work together on many more occasions in the future tooI have been working in the fashion industry for the last 10 years, and Nickie makes the day so much brighter with her creativity, positivity and attention to detail.
