4 Reasons To Consider a Career as a Nail Artist

Applying nail polish
Do you love doing your nails? Maybe you even spend a ridiculous amount of time following nail art pages on Instagram each day. Either way, if nail art is something you love, then you may want to consider a career as a nail artist. It can be an extremely fun and rewarding career for a number of reasons, but we’ll cover just a few of the best benefits.

1. You Get to Express Your Creativity

Working as a nail artist means you get to show off your creative side every single day. Whether it means trying out a new nail trend on one of your clients, or showing off your skills with an elaborate manicure for a special event, no two work days will ever be the same. Imagine your clients’ nails as a blank canvas and have fun with it!

2. You Can Enjoy a Flexible Schedule

Nail salons are typically quite flexible when it comes to scheduling, so you can find a position that works with your busy life. Whether you’re looking for something part-time, full-time, or weekends-only, you’re likely to find a great salon that will work with you. And of course, should you ever decide to open your own nail salon or work as a freelancer, you’ll have the ultimate flexibility!

3. You Get to Form Relationships With People

If you’re the type of person who loves connecting with others and helping them feel better about themselves, then a career as a nail technician is a great opportunity for you. Each day, you’ll work with different clients and give them the confidence boost they need to take on their day. And who knows? Some of your best clients could even become your closest friends.

I started the #mirrormechallenge with my students… I take 2 students one student is the client and the other student is the tech and we sit side by side and I service one hand and the student services the other hand keeping up with the technique and speed my students mirror my work ……I came up with this teaching challenge to build their skills, confidence and speed when I tell you they have been underestimating themselves and blowing my mind… I’m so proud of all my students for getting out of their own way and letting the talent that I see come through!!!! This was a difficult set …we did a glass set with encapsulated Mylar and foils with a crystal cluster design! #mirrormechallenge #tampanails #nailsonfleek #nailart #tampanailart #tampanailtechs

4. Nail Technician Programs Are Affordable

Some nail technician programs can be completed in as little as 9–15 weeks, so you can save on the time, hassle, and cost of completing a four-year (or more!) degree program while still enjoying a rewarding career.
