Tiny Nail Snail takes on the World
A few years ago CEO of Christie & Christie, Julia Christie a Banora Point mother of 3 joined many parents the world over who were concerned about trimming their babies soft delicate nails. Julia started to question the safety of available trimmers after having an accident when trimming her newborn sons nails. Feeling frustrated that no change had been made to the design of traditional methods in over 140 years. She set about inventing an alternative the Nail Snail. With a background in teaching, she set about educating parents and carers on the benefits of using her Nail Snail through demonstrations at reputable baby expos across Australia. In the process she created a dedicated following of happy parents, who were happy to spread their positive experience to other parents. The multi award winning design has been featured as a top 10 finalist on Australia by Design, won an Australian Good Design Award and well as winning Ausmumpreneur for 2018 in her category. This year she has been invited to be an Ausmumpreneur judge at this prestigious event.
The Australian company is based on the sunny Gold Coast and employs a small team of dedicated mums who also have a personal relationship with the product and help to contribute to the ongoing success of the Nail Snail.
