“I find my clients are much happier with their nails when they are a part of the planning,” says Rachael Peterson, a nail tech at Serenity Couture in Rochester, Minn. That’s where her nail art wheels come in handy. Peterson uses her nail art wheels to display the latest colors, show clients examples of her work, and make custom nail art suggestions.

“Most of the time, during their consultation, clients will only request detailed nail art on one or two nails. That’s when I  show them the designs I made on my wheels beforehand,” she says. “To customize their nails, I will take a blank wheel and choose a few colors and combinations that will work with the detailed nail art — it may be a layered nail color, fade, French, or ombré. That way they get to visualize what it will look like before the service.”

For the majority of clients this preview of the final look is a plus. “However, I do have clients who want to be surprised and give me the go-ahead to do what I want,” says Peterson. “Then they try not to look until I am done. I absolutely love that!”
