HI,

Please tell us a little more about yourself. What school do you go to. When will you be graduating. What kind of money are you hoping to make doing nails. Are you going to work for yourself or someone else?
Will you be fulltime or part time.

Im licensed in Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and North Carolina. Requirement we very similar with just hours differing from 400-600. Some states didnt require a hands on in front a board member

Expertise is acrylic and quality nails that last done professional and safely.

My goal was to become and educator. I did that and also a distributor, I am now a licensed instructor and enjoy teaching.

You can make as much money as you want in this industry depending on your desire to learn and hours you make yourself available.

I know people who make $100,000 a year and some who dont make $20,000. However they are two totally different techs. One has a very high skill level and lives in an area that she can charge higher prices and people dont even blink. The other one may be new and still building or only works part time.

Ive been in the nail industry for 20 years and Ive worked a schedule making around $80,000 and now Im very part time and I do work each week but do very few clients (my choice) so I can enjoy my children (second family)

In order to make money my schedule was 5 days a week sometimes 6 and I worked from 9=7 or longer, averaging 10 hour days. But I always set my own schedule.

I worked on an average of 8 clients a day.

Average cost of services ranges ALOT per indidvidual, so I gues I ranged from middle to higher end depending on my clientel load. Prices were lower when I was building and as my book was full, my prices went to higher end.
So $20 for introductory fullset limited time, which slowly moved to $30, $40 until I was @ $60 for a set of pink and white, more for glitter nails.

Good luck with your project. What state are you from?

Congratulations on your last day of school!
I know youve heard this alot and you'll hear it alot more. Practice Practice practice.
nails lasting and staying on longer is a fine tuned machine that requires proper and efficient prep and protein growth being completely removed from the nail plate as well as careful
application around the cuticle coupled with quality products and proper consistency. Its a little bit of everything coming together all at the same time. It takes time to harness it all in. Just keep getting more education. learning NEVER ends in this industry, no matter how long your in it. NEVER ENDS....Smile I consider myself an education junkie LOL.

It was exciting and frightening all at the same time. I got my first job at a high end salon cause my nail art rocked. I could do a full set ok, but they always came back a mess and it was a disaster when it was time for the white french backfill to be redone on a set of pink and whites. Oh I remember some appts that made me just wanna cry.
Fills took me way longer than my new sets because I had so much lifting to get off and I wasn't educated on how to use an electric file.

3 hours and then some sometimes to finish my fill appts. But I never gave up and started seeking education any and everywhere it was possible for me to go. I used this site alot to help me out. Back then it was WAY busier. A new post would be on the second page with in a few hours. There was so much information to gleen.

I guess with new FB professional group sites alot of people have moved on to other sites.

keep seeking and you will find. Smile
