What is Polished by Amy all about?
Here you will find a variety of fun posts all about nails and life as a nail artist and blogger! I cover everything from product reviews, nail tutorials, nail tech chit chat, and lifestyle pieces!

When and why did you start blogging?
I began Polished by Amy in May of 2014 after years of playing with the idea. I absolutely loved the blogging community and wanted to share my passion. I began my new career as a nail technician around the same time and used my blog to log my adventures working in the beauty industry as well!

I ordered my studio lighting from Amazon. The brand I use is called Cowboy Studio and you can find them here.

I love having beautiful nails and I love wearing dark colors especially in the colder months. But, I have been noticing that my cuticles are looking rough! And they are not even. I don’t always have time to go to a nail salon. But, what should I have on hand to care for my cuticles? Or what should I do?
Hi girly! I have a few simple tricks you can do at home to keep your cuticles looking fab! After you get out of the bath, gently push back your cuticles to make them all even. This helps because your skin is still really porous from the water. You can also use oils and creams on your cuticles after a bath, washing your hands, or cleaning. This helps keep them hydrated and looking great!
I have a mobile mani question.
When doing a group, say wedding party or girls night, how much time do you allot total and per individual? Do you charge a flat group rate?
How many people do you allow per group?
Thanks so much!!
Hi Tanya! I typically allot 30 minutes per client when I’m working on location. If I have a larger group, I will cut that down to 20-25 minutes depending on the time restraints. I also will charge a single group rate at a discount if the group is larger than 5 clients. That way your clients get a good deal, and they are encouraged to all get services which adds up to a great profit! :)
I love your blog!!! I only discovered it because you liked one of my posts. Thank you so so much. Keep up your amazing posts and nail inspiring blog. Love, hugs and best wishes, Vixie Lovell x
Thank you so much for the kind words!!☺️💕
Hey Amy, I have read your blog posts for ages now and really enjoy them! I want to grow my blog and even start a YouTube channel and was wondering since you have been able to grow followers in both, whether you would have any tips or tricks?
Also, would you maybe even be able to share my blog and/or my youtube channel?
Now worries if not, just thought I’d give it a try,
