I have always been a huge fan of purple, it's one of my business colours too! If I really had to choose I think my favourite colour would be one of the Evo range - Juliette
. Purple just goes with everything and suits all kinds of skin tones. Juliette is vibrant and punchy and has been hugely popular with my clients as well this Spring
I think a huge tip for someone starting out is to practise, practice practice. It's amazing how quickly you can get the hang of it if you do something little every day. Whether that's on family and friends, or plastic nails tips. It all helps you to flourish in your new journey.
Lastly get as many good photos as you can of everything that you do. Not only is it great when it comes to advertising yourself and shouting about your new career all over social media, it's also a huge confidence boost when you look back at your journey and see how far you have come. You don't always realise the progress you have made until you look back.
How many hours a week do you work?
I am definitely a workaholic so I probably work up to 10 or 11 hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week. BUT a big chunk of that usually is me in my onesie with a cuppa, and Netflix, working on my website or marketing, editing up photos etc and chatting with potential clients. I just love it, it's a hobby as well as a job so I really do enjoy doing it. Don't get me wrong though - I do enjoy other things! One of the great things about a career in nails is the freedom, so if I have an event or fancy a day out or holiday, I just won't book clients in on those dates. It's all about balance!
How do you find your clients?
A lot of my clients now come from recommendations, but my sister recently joined too so I have been doing lots of social media marketing to boost her client base quicker. Facebook has been a brilliant source for new clients. We have a page, a group, and a list of subscribers to our blog which are all great ways to gain peoples trust for them to book in with us. It's all about making an impression with great photos and then being likeable, trustworthy and passionate.
