Picking a nail artist is like picking a tattoo artist. Nail techs offer a wide variety of services, styles, and techniques. Choosing the right nail artist is critical for both nail health and service satisfaction! Here are 5 tips for finding the right nail artist.
Tips For Finding The Right Nail Artist
Search hashtags in your area. If you’re willing to travel, search the geotags in those areas as well.
Look at their style. Does it match the style you’re looking for? No two artists are identical. If you have a vision that you can’t clearly see represented in the works you see on the artist’s social media then keep looking until you find someone who matches your vision.
Check the services offered and prices. If there is a link to their booking site, click on it, check out what they offer, and if they are within your price range.
DM or email the artist. Send a polite message introducing yourself and what you’re looking for. Don’t be afraid to send reference photos and ask if the artist can provide you with what you’re looking for. Have a genuine conversation. Ask for a price quote when you both have worked out what you’ll be getting.
If you like their style, it’s in your budget and you are happy with what you guys decided on, by all means, book an appointment!
