What inspires me to do nails as a career is my talent in art. It’s been 21 years in the industry doing nails, I’ve mostly worked half my career years in my friends and family’s nail salons. I’ve decided to venture out on my own so I can have free creativity with my work and further educate myself. In my opinion, the most sought-after style is getting the right form and shape, and drawing skills onto the nails. There are so many trends right now but what’s lacking is the execution. Nails have a big impact on a lot of women. It brings joy to them. The best part is getting to know your clients’ nails and having good communication.

HG: What is the current price point for nail services?

One session ranges $35-$100. I provide only Acrylic nails and structure gel manicures — all extra services like designs, broken nails, etc., add more to the cost.

HG: What are the most sought-after nail trends for spring?

I’ve always loved nails. I’ve always done my mom’s and sister’s nails. I just never thought I’d be able to make a career out of it. In my early twenties, after several unpleasant experiences, I started doing my own nails. I would always post them on social media and people would start asking me to do theirs. After I realized I was spending X amount of hours doing people’s nails for free, I started charging. My clientele came to me rather organically. Soon after, I went to school to become licensed, gave my boss a 2-week notice, and never looked back. I am so happy now and I always feel like I was meant to be exactly where I am in life. I have worked in the nail industry for almost 10 years now and counting. Things are constantly changing in the nail industry but right now deep smile lines French Tips and swirl nails are both very popular.

One thing I do want to discuss is I’d really like aspiring nail technicians to understand how important it is to become licensed. I understand most of us are self-taught, since they don’t teach us much of the craft in school, but you should respect your craft enough to become licensed. It’s so important and will take you so much farther in your career.

HG: What is the current price point for nail services?

About $100 on average.

Daisies and pastels are definitely trending right now.

Originally I just wanted to wax however I was talked into becoming a set manicurist. I did my first gig and my life was changed! I’ve owned the studio for almost 4 years now, however, I began my career in 2013. We only work on natural nails at Suite Tee, so in my opinion, the style that people want is healthy beautiful nails. As for options, many are going for bright colors, Skittles nails (different colors on every finger), and multicolor french tips.

A Tip from Suite Tee: Your best service will be a sanitary and relaxing service. Please be sure you’re supporting a licensed nail technician that cleans and sanitizes. Also, a dip manicure is acrylic (they don’t want to tell you that!)

HG: What is the current price point for nail services?

Our most popular service is our Dazzle Dry Mani/Pedi combo which is $85.

HG: What are the most sought-after nail trends for spring?

The multicolor tips and floral designs. A lot of people are still just coming back out and colors and flowers are always visually pleasing and make you feel good!

My mom has always been a source of inspiration since I was a little girl. In Japan, we have a class called Kateika (Home economics education), where students learn how to cook and sew. She was the teacher of Kateika class, and I remember growing up surrounded by her beautiful crafts. As soon as I could hold a crayon she encouraged me to draw, and since then I knew one day I want to be in the creative industry where I can express my ideas.

In 2012, I had the opportunity to study for college abroad in the US. During my stay, I was fascinated by how attention-grabbing Japanese nail art has become in the USA and decided to pursue my career as a nail technician. I’ve been in the industry for almost 5 years and have owned my own business since 2020.

HG: What are the most sought-after nail trends for spring?

Evil eye designs, swirl designs, smiley faces. All by hand-painted artists like me.
