From Nail Art to Resin Art, My Vista Journey

My Story

Hi I’m Katia, a Vista resin ambassador.

Originally from Latvia, I’ve been living in the UK for the last 12 years – it started with an adventure with my best friend and the rest is history.

When I first moved to the UK, I started work in a very high-end nail salon in Chelsea which led to me becoming an award winning nail technician – a career that spanned almost 10 years. I then met the love of my life Michael, we moved to Cheltenham and we now have an amazing little boy named Thomas.

In the first lockdown I wanted something to keep me occupied, so I looked into handmade nail palettes made from resin. After further research an idea sparked and I was inspired by the resin palettes to create my own resin coasters.

After tons of research online, I felt confident to have a go and tried my first pour, I was sold straight away. My journey with resin coasters and trays began and 18 months later, with customers in many different countries, I feel like I’ve found my calling!

My Vista Journey

Last year in December I came across Vista resin and was immediately won over by their great quality products and amazing customer service.

My favourite aspect of the resin is how quickly it dries – perfect for those urgent orders!

I used to work with low viscosity resin, so my preferred Vista product is Turbo. My work wasn’t always smooth-sailing and it took a while to find the best way of using Vista Turbo as my curing environment wasn’t optimal, but I’m so pleased I stuck with it as my trays and coasters are better than ever.

I would have never thought I’d be doing this a year and a half later, but I’m definitely proud of how far I’ve come - my coasters can be found in many households all over the world. If you’re thinking of trying Vista, I’d just say go for it, you won’t be disappointed!

Top Tips

  • Take your time experimenting with different Vista products and find which one works best for you
  • The epoxy resin art community is brilliant for advice! Don’t be scared to talk with other resin artists and use social media for inspiration
  • Video tutorials are great for beginners

Vista Pick

My top pick from the Vista product collection is Turbo, you get super speedy curing times without a compromise on quality and finish.
