Well, after getting this nail mail, I will definitely be doing my nails. (Yes, I procrastinate about it too!)
While at HRTE Las Vegas, I saw that Amy Becker from Masterworks was using a table top dust extraction system. It interested me for two reasons.
First was that she explained she preferred this type of system where the fan is before the filter (or bag in this case). Seems to me that with the fan before the filter/bag, your fan motor would last longer. Plus you won’t have to buy filters. Just empty the bag.
I also liked the fact that it gives your customer a spot the lay their arm on while you are working on them! And that their hand will ‘dip’ down a bit so they aren’t locked into a immovable position…
It is not really loud at all, and it gets shut off after you’ve filed their nails too. White is a brilliant color for nail salons too. Nice and clean looking.
This last weekend, I spent in the company of some fine women in our industry. The High Road to Education is a non product specific class taught by industry leaders. One full day of education and then another day of one on one with the educators and their teams!
In no particular order here is some of the things I got to learn about….
And as Gina does so well, a little extra bling for it!
Look at these cute minis from Akzentz available 4/1/16!
I didn’t get a chance to sit with Amy Becker but I did get to watch as she showed us her techniques with Master Works Gel!
Although I found out these are not finished yet, I thought they were beautiful anyways. Amy told me she will take a picture and send it when she is done with them! Such talent. I think it looks like mehndi tattoos! http://masterworksbyamybecker.com/
I took a class from Elizabeth Morris (http://www.thenailhub.com/podcast) on the business of nails! Including many business issues that you just don’t think about as a creative nail tech.
She gave us some homework which I will share with you in another post.
One of the best things that happened to me this weekend was that I got to meet up with some ladies that I follow on social media.
