Call for Student Nail Bloggers

by Tracy Rubert | December 9, 2015

Instructors, NAILS Magazine is looking for our next student blogger for NAILS 101: A Student Blog. Do you have a new student or know someone who will soon be starting nail school? Does this person love to post online and have a true enthusiasm for all things nails? We want to hear from her or him!

The idea of the student blog is to help other nail students know they aren't alone in what they are going through and what they can expect. We really want it to be a first-person point-of-view of what the student is experiencing weekly in school.

The way it works is the student send us her write-up each week (in Word or e-mail), along with a photo (or photos), and then we’ll post to the blog. Once we post to the blog, we’ll send her a link so she can share it where she likes, and we’ll also usually post it to our Facebook page so people will go read it. This is not a paid position, so we're only asking that the student post once a week and keep us up to date on the good, the bad, and the ugly about nail school. You can read an example here.

If you know someone who would be interested, please have them send an email to
