As I scroll through instagram, facebook, pinterest and other social media platforms that showcase nail art and design, I am often intimidated by what I see. I have been doing this for over 20 years and I am amazed by what is out there and available. The nail industry has come so far and continues to grow by leaps and bounds. I sometimes find myself completely overwhelmed thinking, I know I can do those things but how do I find time and will my clients want those things if I invest in what is needed to achieve those looks. So, as my head continues to reel... I think to myself, don't forget where you came from, be true to you and the nail tech you want to be, and try everything but find your signature style. Most important, never stop educating yourself, never let go of the desire to learn new things.
