This mani gives a new meaning to killer nail art! Sarah Elmaz of...
NAILPRO-file Featuring: GLOSS Nail Studio!
What is your most popular service?
Nail art! Whether it's over acrylic or on natural nails with gel polish, clients love having fun nails. We do a lot of blended glitter with hand painted nail art over the top. The 5 different styles on each hand has been a big hit also. I can't even remember the last time I did a simple white tip!
What products do you use in your salon and why did you choose them?
My sisters and girlfriends have all been good sports. They let me try new products and techniques on them all the time without any complaints! I tried different acrylic products for 6 months before deciding which one I liked the best. For acrylic I use CND's Retention+ line because it stayed strong, had no yellowing, and very minimal lifting on various types of nails. For lacquer, we use OPI, Vinylux, and Morgan Taylor and for gel polish we use OPI GelColor and Gelish.
What’s the best compliment you’ve received about your business?
We have been blessed and received so many!! But, I think the most common and the most surprising one I have received was how clean we keep the studio. It's crazy to me that people don't take pride in their work environment enough to keep it clean, but it blows my mind even more that clients would continue going to these places even after knowing how dirty the place is!
