What Nail Art Designs Are the Most Eye-Catching to Passers-by?

May 13, 2013

I want to promote my nail business by wearing an eye-catching design on my own nails. What designs do you most get stopped on the street for, and where (the grocery store, the bank, etc.) do you most frequently get noticed?

Answer

We love that you promote yourself via your own nails — they are definitely your best business card. We posed this question to our Facebook fans (www.facebook.com/nailsmag) and one nail style was the clear winner….glitter. Anything with tons of sparkle will catch the eyes of passers-by. As far as where, the responses ran the gamut. Expect to be stopped anywhere you do a transaction with your hands, including in the grocery store checkout line, inside retail stores, and at the drive-through. Just be sure to always have a stack of actual business cards on hand too. — NAILS Eds.

I live in Virginia and there are never nail seminars or lectures or even hands-on classes here. Do you have any suggestions on learning nail art designs when there is no one in my area to teach it? Watching videos is good but sometimes you just need hands-on.
