A client of mine wants Minxed toenails, but I think her pinky toe is way too small for the coating. How should I handle this so she can still get a Minx-like nail style?
There are some pinky toes that are either non-existent or way too small for the Minx to actually adhere. In these cases, I will use a polish that complements the Minx. If I’m using Silver or Gold Lightning Minx, then I’ll use silver or gold metallic polish. If I’m using a pattern like Pink Cheetah, then a black-on-pink toe could work — just use whatever the most prominent color is of the Minx. It blends right in and no one notices. You can also get creative. For instance I once used a gold-and-white hound’s-tooth patterned Minx on a client, then on the client’s next visit I couldn’t for the life of me remove her pinky toe Minx…until I finally realized that I had painted it white with a little splash of gold to blend in with the Minx pattern. It looked so good I didn’t even know it was polish. — Naja Rickette is a Minx Master and lead trainer.
I have a station with a couple of drawers. However, since I do regular and colored acrylics, nail polish, gel-polish, and glitters/foils, I can’t seem to store everything without looking like a hoarder. How can I store all of my nail products and keep it neat and organized?
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?
I am an apprentice in a natural nail salon. Sometimes I get requests for nail art. I would love to learn how to do different nail designs, but I am a beginner. 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.
