Mentoring Program Challenges Participants to Excel

New York City-based nail tech Naomi Gonzalez-Longstaff will help you develop brag-worthy skills through her Artistry mentoring program.

New York City-based nail tech Naomi Gonzalez-Longstaff (@naomignails) has plenty to brag about. She’s a salon entrepreneur, educator, and editorial session nail designer who works with many international fashion brands. Now, through her Artistry mentoring program, she’ll help you develop brag-worthy skills.

Artistry is an innovative mentoring and professional development program designed to provide selected participants with insights into the technical and business skills needed to become an in-demand nail professional. The four-week structured program includes weekly instructional units and assignments conducted through a virtual port as well as one-on-one mentoring and coaching sessions. Topics include understanding the creative process, design conceptualization, nail art, science and chemistry, technique, and marketing and PR strategies.

<p>Gonzalez-Longstaff created these nails for designer Marianna Jungmann during London&rsquo;s Fashion Week in September 2014.</p>

Instruction is limited to groups of six to eight participants. “This format has opened up opportunities for nail professionals worldwide not only to learn from each other, but also provides a great networking and support chain once the course is completed,” says Gonzalez-Longstaff. 

The program is open to techs of all skill levels who pass the selection process, which includes submitting photos of your work and having a phone and Skype interview. Contact [email protected] for more information.
