The World’s Most Expensive Pedicure

I read this article on Yahoo News over the weekend and the wheels have been spinning in my head ever since….

The World’s Most Expensive Pedicure

I keep asking myself these questions:

1. Would I spend that much on a pedi even if I was the Queen of England?
2. How could I ever charge a client that much for a pedi? What would I need to offer to justify that price?
3. Does Emu Oil really work that great?
4. Who is this Margaret Dabbs lady?

I have come to this conclusion.

Does speed matter?

I just read a blog on Nails Magazine about some nail techs that can do three services in the amount of time it takes me to do one. They were saying they can do a full set of gel polish in 20 minutes, with removal. I’ve taken classes from this company before and speed seems to be a focus for them….

I haven’t been in the business nearly as long as these people have, but a common complaint with my clients is that they felt like other nail techs rushed through …

I LOVE Shellac!

Here is a pic of my very own set of Shellac nails! The color is Tutti Frutti, my personal favorite so far, but I love all of them! Negligee actually seems to be the most popular so far–it’s a beautiful sheer neutral pink color. Everyone that has tried Shellac has been extremely pleased so far. I did a set on Saturday for a lady who had booked an appointment for gel nails, but after talking with her, we decided to do a combination of my Acryhard gel and Shellac. She …
