Tinu Bello first realised she wanted to build a career beyond the salon walls when she noticed the model’s nails in a Vogue fashion story. Following the completion of her training, Tinu worked in multiple salons and quickly began developing her repertoire for bold, colourful and creative nail designs. Ambitious and innovative, Tinu moved on to grow her own brand and business: Colour Riot Nails. Now with two in-demand salons, including her Shoreditch flagship, plus many pop-up concessions around London, Tinu is well on her way to Colour Riot domination.
Outside of the salon, Tinu’s skill and flair has garnered the attention of fashion and commercial clients alike, from designing nails for House of Holland and Markus Lupfer shows, to working on campaigns for Dior, Pantene and Volkswagen.
Tinu’s celebrity clientele includes Bella Hadid, Jorja Smith, Rita Ora and Ellie Goulding, and her work can also regularly be found in Harper’s Bazaar, Hunger, Wonderland and Elle.
