by Sigourney Nuñez | May 17, 2016

Preparing for prom is about narrowing it down to just the right look — including the nails. The event is one of the biggest fashion moments in a young girl’s life. From a long princess gown to a frothy flirty frock, or even something totally different, a lot of effort goes into choosing that gorgeous garment. Focus your attention on teenagers this season by offering a manicure to match her favorite formal ensemble so you can transform first-time customers into long-standing appointments. These designed sets are inspired by 11 of the most popular prom dress styles.
