Our Story - The Nail Snail
Christie & Christie Logo

Christie & Christie is a family-run business based on the Gold Coast in Australia. It is 100% Australian owned.

Julia Christie, mother of three and former primary school teacher, came up with the idea of the Nail Snail after yet another round of tears and bloodshed whilst using a traditional set of baby nail clippers to cut her baby boy's nails. There had to be a better way. Turns out there is! The Nail Snail has crawled off the page of a 5am 'eureka' drawing in 2013, to become a revolutionary baby care product.

Together with her husband Arrlann, a Doctor, they extensively tested the Nail Snail on their own son's and newborn daughters' nails. Despite their initial apprehension, even the young, male, industrial design team had a go cutting the nails of Julia and Arrlann's kids and were chuffed at how easy and painless the process was for all involved. Having since shared the Nail Snail with many of their friends who are parents, they have been thrilled with the consistently positive feedback. "This is SO easy!" "I can't believe it, she hasn't even flinched!" "That was so quick!" Knowing they were onto a brilliant idea, Julia has worked tirelessly to bring the Nail Snail to market, so that now you too can cut your baby's nails without tears!

At Christie & Christie, as parents, a doctor and a teacher, they believe in the best possible care for their children and believe that you and your little ones deserve the same.
