What You NEED To Know Before Becoming A Nail Tech

Hi loves!

These are things that should be helpful to anyone who is looking to get started or is a beginner in the beauty industry in general. I’ve been a licensed nail tech for 4 years now, so I thought it was a good time to share some of my insight. I hope you find this helpful; now let’s get started!

Thank you all so much for watching! I hope your day is awesome; love and light! :)

I’ve Moved | New Salon!

Hey guys!

Today I’m sharing another nail update! I recently moved out of my nail suite and joined a local salon! I still have my own nail room in this full salon and I finally finished moving everything in. I’m enjoying the set up so far, so I wanted to share the room with you guys. I plan on filming a tour of my set up soon, but for now I’ll be sharing some photos.

This is the first look when you walk into the the nail room. I have my manicure table in a corner to maximize the space the best I can. I’ve added a mirror to the far wall to help open up the space, but I think I’ll be adding a bigger mirror soon.

This wall has to be my favorite! I’ve laid everything out the same as my previous room, so not much has changed. *And yes, I will be fixing the crooked wall rack that’s driving me crazy!* The wall rack houses my normal lacquer, and the table top rack is just for my gel polish.

This space next to the manicure table is where I keep my paraffin bath. My set up includes a table for the paraffin bath, disposable gloves and socks, and some faux plants. It fits perfectly in the corner, so it doesn’t take up much space.

This corner is the pedicure area! My hydraulic chair fits perfectly here with a plush rug for extra comfort.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I’ll do a more in depth video of my storage and layout soon. I hope your day is awesome; love and light! :)
