Polished by Amy Nail Spa

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to share the story of my nail salon, Polished by Amy Nail Spa. I’m currently going into my sixth month in business and I thought it would be a great idea to share the story of my salon and the mission behind it all. First, here’s a little background to catch you up to speed:

I received my nail technician license in 2014 and immediately began working in local salons. I worked as a booth renter and employee of three different salons, as well as traveling as a mobile nail tech for an on-location company. After a few years of experiencing the industry in these different ways, I realized I would thrive the most in my own environment. Because of this, I decided to open my very own nail studio in Lafayette, Georgia which was the birth of Polished by Amy Nail Spa!

The main aspect of my business model is to align my salon with the health conscious client. I opted for providing only natural nail services with an emphasis on natural products and steering away from acrylics because of the harsh chemicals and fumes involved with those enhancements. This creates a more inviting, relaxing, and safe environment for my clientele as well as children or expectant mothers. It’s my goal as a nail technician to improve, perfect, and maintain the natural nail so you don’t have the need for enhancements!

Another one of my favorite aspects of my studio is my pipeless pedicure spa. Typical jetted foot spas contain an element of risk because of the difficulty of disinfecting the pipes and drains. This can leave you open to infection. However, in my salon I opted for an electric foot spa with disposable liners for each client. This ensures the foot bath is completely safe and sanitary for each client!

Lastly, I wanted to share a quick list of some of the major aspects that make my nail salon unique. I strive to promote healthy and beautiful nails in a healthy and calm environment!

  • Private nail studio
  • Natural nail services
  • No harsh chemical and fumes
  • Relaxing spa-like environment
  • Appointment based
  • Organic and vegan polish options
  • More natural products
  • Complimentary bottled water and treats
  • Pipeless pedicure spa
  • Aromatherapy manicure and pedicure soaks
  • Essential oils
  • Organic sugar scrubs

Revamp Your Nail Salon | Tips and Tricks

Hi loves!

Today I wanted to share my tips for bringing new life into your salon! As you may know, I have my own nail suite and I’m always looking for ways to improve my smaller space. These tips are things that I personally do to prepare my space for Spring and Summer, keep it looking fabulous, and make it an inviting space for clients. If you’d like to also see a full tour of my nail suite, you can check out that video here. Now let’s get started!

Keep your salon dusted and vacuumed regularly. I like to vacuum every two days and dust about twice a week. This ensures that my clients always walk into a clean space and never see any debris or dust while they’re spending time in my space. Daily cleaning like this also helps you in the long run. It makes it much easier when it comes time to do your deep and thorough cleanings!

Roll all of your polish bottles periodically. I know many of us are in the habit of shaking our polish to re-mix them, but the best thing to do is roll them. This mixes the polish while preserving the quality of the formula. I like to re-mix my bottles after they have sat for a while and start to settle. I tend to do this once every week or two.

succulent-918663_1920

Freshen up the space with new decor or plants. For my nail suite, I went with an all white theme with black accents. This meant I have little color in my space. In order for me to bring some life into the room, I brought in some plants to add a boost of color. I have a larger live tree along one wall, and some fake succulents on another table. I really enjoy the pops of green in the room, and the overall “natural” vibe it gives to the space!

Add some limited time specials to your service menu. This can be anything from a seasonal manicure or pedicure (like cinnamon for the Fall or citrus for the Summer), or a new add on for any service. This ensures you are constantly updating and staying up with the current trends. Your clients will definitely appreciate this!

Thank you all so much for reading! I hope this post gave you some new inspiration for your salon or nail space. These tactics can work in any size space, whether you’re working from home or in a larger salon. I hope your day is awesome; love and light! :)
