HOW TO USE NAIL FILE: STEP BY STEP
A file is the most important accessory when doing manicure and extending the nail. There are files with the same grit on both sides or with different one on each side.
But what do numbers like 100/100, 100/180 mean?
Example: 180/180 is a number that represent the same amount of grit per square centimeter.
Higher the number, less sharp is the file, lower the number, sharper is the file. The sharpest file found on the market is the 80/80 file, used when removing the material from the nail, like acrylic, which is harder than gel.
Nail file, 180 grit is used to shape the nail and to prepare the nail before beginning the nail extension process.
Nail file 600/4000 is used when doing the natural manicure. In most cases one side of the nail file is green and the other is white. First you would need to file the nail with the green side and then polish it on the white side to achieve the exceptionally high shine.
Whether you don’t have time to head into the salon or you’re simply looking for ways to cut back on your beauty spending, learning how to do your own nails at home is a skill worth pursuing.
Just keep in mind that acrylic, gel, poly-gel... nails—both those done in a salon or created at home—come with their pros and cons. On one hand, they’re sturdy and long-lasting, creating the unique opportunity to score stellar nail length if your natural nails are hard to grow out. On the other hand, they can be damaging to your nails if you don’t prepare natural nails properly, if you remove them improperly, also skin reactions can occur, if you don't do nails safely.
That's why I will spill all my magic and glitters and ride you true the safe, no damage, no lifting, process.
Because I want you to stay healthy and to have healthy nails.
Nails appear discoloured or misshapen a number of weeks – a phenomenon that’s been dubbed “COVID nails”.
One symptom is a red half-moon pattern that forms a convex band over the white area at the base of fingernails. This seems to present earlier than other COVID-related nail complaints, with patients noticing it less than two weeks after being diagnosed. Multiple cases have been reported – but not many.
Red half-moon nail patterns like this are generally rare, and previously haven’t been seen so close to the nail base. So having this pattern appear like this could exclusively be an indication of a COVID-19 infection.
A few patients have also found new horizontal indentations in the bases of the nails of their fingers and toes, which are known as Beau’s lines. These tend to appear four weeks or more after a COVID-19 infection.
Beau’s lines occur when there is a temporary interruption in nail growth due to a physical stress on the...
HOW TO GET OVER CAMERA SHYNESS AS A NAIL STYLIST?
1. PRACTICE WITHOUT POSTING
- Decide what you'll talk about.
- Turn on camera.
- Talk for a minute.
2. ANALYZE VIDEO
Check out your videos.
Make sure you're:
- not talking to fast
- not talking to stiff
- you are talking as you talk to a friend
- looking into the camera
It won't be perfect :)
But you just need to start.
Start with only a sentence or two.
- Ask followers if they have a question for you.
- Tell them what you are doing today.
- Share a short tip.
Create a script, but you don't read it!
This will help you stay on track.
Don't worry if you don't tell everything by a script.
5. DON'T OVER ANALYZED IT
Create max. of 5 takes!
Choose the best one and post it!
It won't be perfect, but you will do the first step and with every step you will be better.
Perfection doesn't exist.
You should wear gloves because of:
BLOOD TRANSMISSION RISKS
Nail technicians can be exposed to blood borne diseases such as hepatitis, HIV and other infectious diseases.
If a client’s skin is pierced or broken and the nail technician comes into contact with infected blood, technician can contract these potentially life-threatening diseases.
Nail technicians can be exposed to fungal infections that rest on a customer's finger and toenails.
Other infections that can be transmitted during manicure are:
-Spots, boils, abcesses, impetigo
-Paronychia– bacterial infection
-Onycholysis– due to fungal infections
Hello NAIL QUEENS!
You are posting and you're engagement is still falling?
What makes a post GOOD if you have a business profile?
Here are my advices for you:
Targets everyone! (Example: you are not specific to whom you are talking.)
Targets your ideal customer! (Example: you need to talk to women, mums, business women, ect.)
Has no particular point! (Example: only photo of nails, without caption.)
Offers a solution to a problem! (Example: how to take care of your nails.)
Has no purpose! (Example: only photo of nails or your dog/cat. )
Has a purpose! (Example: help with advice, be funny, educational, ect.)
It's complicated and full of professional terminology. (Example: you are using words like proximal fold, nail matrix, polimerization, exothermal reactions, ect. )
It's easy to understand. (Example: heat spikes, nails lifting, cuticle, curing, ect.)
It's self serving. (Example: only plain pictures of nails.)
Especially when you put so much effort in it.
Here are the BIGGEST causes of nail lifting:
Different brands are highly unlikely to have the same UV output. UV curing nail product requires the correct level of UV exposure in the proper range of wavelengths at the correct intensity and for the right amount of time. All three of these factors are equally important and none of these should be ignored.
If the product is touching the skin, it will lift. And also you are very close to cause allergies.
Improper Cuticle work:
- lift cuticle from the nail plate
- remove dead skin
- there must be no bleeding, cuts and injuries!
- pay attention on cuticle around sinuses
Improper nail preparation
You have to thoroughly remove oils, contaminants or dead skin from the nail plate, so the product is able to adhere well.
Be aware of old primers and dehydrators.
