How to get your nails done for less
Posted On July 17, 2021
For years, I was a pretty good nail technician.
I would clean, trim and polish my nails.
I’d use my hands to gently press the nail beds back into place.
I had been taught that nails had to be held in place with a nail file, but the nail file was a little too large for my tiny hands.
I learned that nail file is a little more forgiving than other file systems.
I was also taught that my nails were to be pressed with a thin nail file for maximum results.
I loved this job, because I knew it was a great opportunity to show off my beauty, but I also wanted to be a good wife and mother.
And, of course, my nails needed to stay in place.
But that’s not what I had in mind.
I knew I needed to learn how to work in a more professional way.
I thought I was doing the best job possible.
My nail file wasn’t large enough for my small hands.
It was just too small for my delicate nails.
My nails were so thin, they would slide off the file.
I felt like I was trying to apply too much pressure.
When I went to a nail salon to get my nails done, I learned the hard way that this wasn’t the best way to go.
I wasn’t going to get the most beautiful nails with the least amount of effort.
So I asked a colleague if I could go to a professional salon instead.
She said, “No, you have to learn to work on your nails yourself.”
I went into my office and got ready to get to work.
What I learned was that I wasn’ t going to be able to hold my nails in place, let alone get my hands around them.
That’s when I realized I didn’t know what I was missing.
So, I asked my husband if I should go to my local nail salon.
He said, “You have to be at your job, you can’t be at home, you must be working.”
So, as I walked into my nail salon, I sat in a chair and was staring at my nails, my husband, my coworkers, and my new friend, the salon owner.
She came over and started talking to me.
I couldn’t believe what she had to say.
She explained that my nail file should be the same size as a professional manicure.
She explained that I could get my manicure done in about 20 minutes if I just did my nails by hand.
She showed me how to pick up my nail files and put them into a file holder.
She also explained how to make a quick cut with my fingers to get a small cut on my nails so that they would be easier to remove with a file.
Then she explained how you could use the file holder to make your own manicure or manicure manicure nail file.
So, I started cutting and applying my manicures and then, when I finished, I would remove the file and place it in a drawer.
This is when my life changed.
I got to know a professional nail salon owner and learned a lot about the importance of nail file work.
It taught me to treat my nails the way I want to be treated.
The lesson was so simple: If I wanted to make sure my nails stayed in place while I worked, I had to take my nails off the nail files.
And if I didn’ t do this, I wouldn’t be able keep my nails looking good.
But the next time I was at a salon, the nail care lady wouldn’t let me take my nail cuts.
I didn t have the proper tools to make them, and I didn'” t have any knowledge about how to get rid of them.
She told me to just leave them in the file cabinet and let them dry.
A month later, I still had the file in the cabinet.
But the nail cutters were nowhere to be found.
Even though I had started my own business, I never had the tools to get them done.
I spent so much time trying to learn and get better at nail file cutting and cutting and filing, I didn” t know where to start.
I decided to give it a shot and did the job for $200.
I bought the necessary tools, I put my nails on, and within a week, I could remove the nail cuts from the file cabinets and put my new nails in.
There were two things I learned while I was working in a nail salons.
There are two types of file systems: file cabinets or file holders.
The more time you put into your nails, the more likely you are to have the right file.
But I didn”t have the tools.
I wanted the tools so badly that I was spending hours in a file cabinet trying to find the right tool. So what
