Polished by Amy T-Shirts!!

Hey guys!

I am SUPER excited to announce I have created a line of custom t-shirts inspired by my love for nails and beauty! These graphic tees will be nail, beauty, and lifestyle related with fun sayings and logos. The shirts are crew neck and made with a super soft tri-blend fabric, so you will love the fit. Each purchase of a shirt will be supporting not one, but TWO small businesses: my nail salon Polished by Amy Nail Spa and my boyfriend’s t-shirt company Mountain Wild Screen Printing. These shirts are priced at $12 each plus shipping anywhere in the US. This is something I’ve wanted to do for so long and I’m grateful to collaborate with my boyfriend’s company to make it happen.

Sizes available are XS- 4XL and you may order any quantity you’d like. I will be taking pre-orders over the next 3 weeks and the shirts will ship out by September 1st. I will have all of the current designs, colors, and other options listed below. We will also be adding more designs soon, so make sure you check back! Here is the Facebook group for these products where you can find more details: https://goo.gl/fE5hnS

Influenster Unboxing | Summer Box

Hey guys!

I just received the Splash Voxbox which is the Summer box from Influenster. If you’re unfamiliar with what Influenster is, it’s basically a way to receive FREE boxes of new products that are launching! You can follow this link to find out more information if you’re interested. I am loving everything I got in this box, so I can’t wait to show you guys. Let’s get started!

I absolutely LOVE receiving nail polish in these boxes, so I was so excited to see a new one from Sinful Colors! It’s a gorgeous red multi-glitter that I don’t have anything like in my collection. Obsessed!

Next up is this dry shampoo from Not Your Mother’s. I have to say that I’ve tried one of their dry shampoos in the past and I didn’t like it. However, this is a new release and I’m a huge fan! It smells like warm vanilla sugar and it really gets the job done for my hair!

The next product I’ve fallen in love with is this aromatherapy roller ball from Nature’s Origin. It’s a peppermint essential oil blend that you can apply on your body. I have been using it everyday and I’m loving the scent.

Next up is a new candy from Mike and Ike. Who doesn’t love getting free candy??

I also received one of the new Super Stay Matte Ink products from Maybelline. I got the shade “Lover” which is a gorgeous mauve pink. It dries down to a gorgeous finish that doesn’t feel too dry. I’m enjoying using it as an everyday shade!

Lastly, I received a new face mask from Tree Hut! This is an exfoliating charcoal mask that I like to use for my acne prone skin. I apply, let it dry, then wet it slightly so I can massage the micro beads into my skin for some exfoliation. I will definitely be getting the larger bottle of this when I run out!

So that’s it for this Summer box! Have you guys received this box or tried any of these products? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Thank you all so much for stopping by! I hope your day is awesome; love and light! :)

Tips For Improving Your Salon Business

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to share some tactics that I personally use to ensure my nail business runs smoothly. As you may know, I’m the sole nail technician in my nail suite and I’m always looking for ways to improve my business and make it more successful. These tips would be helpful for anyone working in the beauty industry, so I hope you enjoy. Now let’s get started!

Set up an online booking system for your clients. I’ve found this tactic to be extremely successful for my new business. I personally use Setmore for my salon booking page, and I’ve linked it to my Facebook. This allows me to create a “Book Now” button at the top of my Facebook where clients can book appointments themselves. I’ve gotten create feedback on how convenient and easy to use it is. I also enjoy that my clients can book an appointment 24/7 without having to wait on business hours to speak with me.

Create salon policy and implement them for everyone! I cannot stress the importance of having “rules” or policies for your business. I didn’t have anything in place when I opened my salon, and I have issues very quickly. I’ve since learned that I needed policies for payments, tardiness, and no-shows. After having clients show up 10-15 minutes late to appointments I decided to share the new rules. If any client is 10 minutes late to 2 appointments, I will no longer book them in my salon. This may seem harsh at first, but as a nail technician or hair stylist your time is money. If you see that you have a problem with lateness or no-shows, it’s time to let that client go.

Get all of your clients information about their service beforehand. I’ve ran into the problem of clients booking a pedicure and not telling me they have gel enhancements on. This poses a problem when I allot a 45 minute slot for them, but have to spend an extra 25 minutes on removal of old gel polish. To remedy the problem, I now have clients tell me what they have on their hands and feet at the time of booking. This allows me to adjust their time and price accordingly.

Thank you all so much for reading! I really hope these tips were helpful and gave you some inspiration for your own business or salon. If you have any of your own tips to add, please leave them in the comments below. I hope your day is awesome; love and light!

Today’s Look | Outfit of the Day

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to share an outfit of the day, as well as what I’m rocking on my nails! Black has always been my go-to when it comes to clothes and today is no different. I paired a basic white tee that I cut myself with my favorite pair of black ripped skinnies from Fashion Nova!

IMG_3912I’m also rocking my natural nails this week, so I opted for a gel polish to prevent them from breaking. My nails grow super quick, but they are paper thin. Gel manicures are my life saver! This shade is a gorgeous bright purple from the brand Gelous.
