Rant post! I really hate when clients flick, smug, press, rub, and all the other words that relates to touching their nails after I've prepped them for application or polish. Make me understand how you did not see me just clean your nails? Do you know what else causes lifting? Touching your nails after they've been prepped. Your skin produces oil, which the nail has to be dehydrated and free of oil before application. I had a client that rubbed and scratched their head and face of makeup after I've prepped them. If you want to piss off your nail tech, touch your Nails during service. Right after primer has been applied 😖🤷🏾‍♀️. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #blackgirlsdonails #holographicnails #marblenails   #acrylicnails #acrylic   #nailoftheday #gelnails #designernails #design #gelpolish #glitteracrylic #makeupartist #glitternails #nails #instagood #nailtech #photooftheday #nailart #love #ombrenails   #charlottenc #dashofnails #beautiful #happy #cltnailtech #pride #blackgirlmagic #pink #fashion #nailhumor

My cuticle & side wall work is flawless. No damage & no rings. I see so many nail videos of technicians using these Russian cuticle bits incorrectly 🤷🏾‍♀️. This is before the cuticle trim. I used cuticle bits to remove the dead tissue, smooth the eponychium and side walls, and get to areas to quickly remove and smooth instead of only using a sanding bit and cuticle nipper. Just my preference 🤗. I've mastered this technique and as you can see, there are no cuts to skin or damage to the natural nail. Cuticle treatments makes your set and polish application last longer, and looks neat. This is an extra service you can add on💅🏿💅🏿 Cuticle treatment = dry manicure. 💅🏿💅🏿 Scheduling link is in all bios . . . . . . . . . . . . #blackgirlsdonails #holographicnails   #marblenails   #acrylicnails #acrylic   #nailoftheday #gelnails #coloracrylic #designernails #design #gelcolor #gelpolish #glitteracrylic #glitter #glitternails #nails #nailtech #nailart #ombrenails #ombre   #charlottenc #charlottenailtech #dashofnails #beauty #happy #cltnailtech #russianmanicure #pedicure #manicure #summer

Gel polish change with one coat of hard gel to add strength and shape. Someone was tired after work, and decided to take a 15 minute nap during the soak off 😴😂 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #blackgirlsdonails #holographicnails   #marblenails   #acrylicnails #acrylic   #nailoftheday #gelnails #coloracrylic #designernails #design #gelcolor #gelpolish #glitteracrylic #glitter #glitternails #nails #nailtech #nailart #ombrenails #ombre   #charlottenc #charlottenailtech #dashofnails #beauty #happy #soakoffgel #sleep #tired #manicure #russianmanicure

So the power went out due to thunderstorm in Charlotte, NC. I was reshaping in the dark, and after 15 minutes, we went to finish at her house. 5 week fill-in with acrylic color & glitter change. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #blackgirlsdonails #holographicnails   #marblenails   #acrylicnails #acrylic   #nailoftheday #gelnails #coloracrylic #designernails #design #glitteracrylic #glitter #glitternails #nails #ombrenails #ombre   #charlottenc #charlottenailtech #dashofnails #beauty #happy #glass #glowinthedark #glowinthedarknails #memorialday #memories #memorialdayweekend

🦄🦄🦄🦄 & 🦋🦋🦋🦋 for the birthday girl turning 12 next week. #HappyBirthday. All acrylic & #notpolish She went to a traditional shop, & her nails popped off a couple of days later. I gave her a cuticle treatment to clean around the sidewalls. Some of her nail beds are wide, and not all tips fit everybody. I am not a 30 minute shop. You get the full service, treatment, & education. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #blackgirlsdonails #holographicnails   #marblenails   #acrylicnails #acrylic   #nailoftheday #gelnails #coloracrylic #designernails #design #glitteracrylic #glitter #glitternails #nails #nailtech #nailart #ombrenails   #charlottenc #charlottenailtech #dashofnails #beauty #happy #unicorn #butterfly #butterflies #cltnailtech #birthday #birthdaygirl

Had to remove one color acrylic nail and replace with clear, because she is having surgery this week. I enjoy doing cuticle treatments as it makes the set last longer. Her set has been on for 3 weeks now, and she will come for a fill next week. Most of my clients I see once a month. I might switch to sculpting instead of using tips 🤔. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #blackgirlsdonails #holographicnails   #marblenails   #acrylicnails #acrylic   #nailoftheday #gelnails #designernails #design #gelpolish #glitteracrylic #glitter #glitternails #nails #nailtech #nailart #ombrenails #ombre   #charlottenc #charlottenailtech #dashofnails #beauty #happy #surgery #cuticle #sculpture #sculpting #russianmanicure #manicure #russian
