The Team



Kirsty Maccormick owner and founder of The Nail Yard has a career spanning 26 years in the spa/wellness and beauty industry with positions from therapist to spa director, regional director and finally corporate director of a large hotel company. This resulted in 8 years of international experience following which Kirsty returned home to her home town of Edinburgh. Following a great deal of research she discovered there was an opportunity in the current market to develop a beauty service brand which is highly professional but value for money and specialising in service treatments.


Sandra Macleod, co-owner of The Nail Yard, grew up in London and since graduating with a Business Studies degree 14 years ago has mainly worked in property and trading in London. Sandra has been interested in the Spa and Wellness industry for many years so its great to combine her skill sets with her passion for the industry.

Hi, i'm Elaine and i'm thrilled to be the Salon Manager at The Nail Yard. I'm delighted to be working with such a professional team here in our beautiful Morningside Salon. I've been in the industry for 30 years and i'm passionate about quality products and customer service. I've recently relocated to Edinburgh from Aberdeenshire where I ran my own salon business for over 10 years. my favourite treatment in the salon is the Margaret Dabbs Supreme would be my first choice of treatment to have if I was a customer and I love that it gives such a fantastic result for smooth, silky feet. The products are just amazing to use. I 100% believe that your smile starts from the feet up!
