Facebook Live, Gel-Polish, and Fire Drills at NAILS’ Headquarters

by Holly Schippers | January 30, 2018

One of my very favorite things to do in California is visit the NAILS Magazine office! The atmosphere is chill, the office has a neat look and cool vibe, and the people are amazing. This visit we did a Facebook Live on the NAILS page with some tips and idea’s for quick and effective Valentine designs. If you missed it, you can still view it from my YouTube channel.

We also did a few other things that you will see coming out in the future!

At the end of the day, it was time to do some nails for a couple of editors. While removing the gel-polish from one, we got to participate in a building-wide fire drill! I can’t say I ever imagined having a fire drill selfie — lt was a pretty neat experience.

Once the nails were done, the day came to an end with a team get-together that is always a great highlight of any trip.

I’m including a step-by-step of the nail design above for you as blog bonus for today:

1. Prep the nails.

2. Apply your gel-polish base coat and cure.

3. Apply a thin coat of gel-polish color and cure.

4. Press some robot dandruff or other metallic flakes into one corner of the nail.

5. Apply a thin layer of top coat. Do not cure

6. Apply 3-4 gel-polish colors (depending on the length of the nails) in thin diagonal stripes, alternating each stripe with a very light color. Do not cure

7. Use a thin long detail brush or a striping brush to pull through the stripes towards the robot dandruff, then cure.

8. Apply top coat and cure.

9. Cleanse, apply oil, and photograph!

Reopening? Know Your Numbers

by Michele Baker

For those of you that like a little data with your info, here is some really interesting information from salon owner Michele Baker in Georgia. Being one of the first states to open left the salon owners to scramble to learn a lot of things on their own and many have been generous in sharing things they have figured out to help make operating in the COVID-19 world more systematic and understandable.
