Lifestyle. My nails can be described as your wardrobe. Nowadays people express themselves through their nails—it shows who they are.
What should you think about the idea of leaving the salon?
My clients tell me that they are so relaxed. Many house visits are made by me and I want to make my clients feel at home in their homes. When I leave, I want my clients to be relaxed. Their excitement is what I desire.
For inspiration, you may have a local nail artist or salon that you love.
This is what I love! Amy Le Nails in L.A., she’s super talented. Chaun Legend, he’s a stylist—different mind—but I love his work. Each manicurist deserves respect. [when they’ve been]It will be necessary to put in a lot of work. You have to be so patient in this industry, it’s really competitive.
Hailey shape, medium length oval shape. It’s something I do too. My main objective is to naturally grow long nails for my clients, even though I have many art skills. This is why the oval shape of nails works best. It doesn’t break as easily. You also find it more feminine.
Are you looking for regular or gel?
Gel polishes are a good choice when it comes to design. Once it’s set, the gel polish should be dried quickly.
Comment do you define “color”?
Nudes are my favorite thing. Each person has their own skin tones so nudes will be different. Three colors are my go-to: OPI bubblebath, Neutral, and Bare My Soul.
Is it simple and clean or is there high-quality work?
I have to customize it depending on my clients’ interests. I love nude nails. Recently I’m doing every different shade of the glazed donut nail—it’s now my go-to thing.
Are there any top-rated hand or nail products that you recommend?
For healthy nails, it is important to take care of your nails. Orly tools are great for nail care. A common mistake I see is when people clean the cuticle but they don’t clean up the nail bed.
It is essential to match mani-pedis with your hair.
It’s good if you’re coordinating your look, but I always mismatch myself. I don’t really care if it’s matching or mismatching. Whatever you like, it’s possible!
