NAIL ARTIST CONFESSIONS
Ever wonder what goes on in your nail artists’ mind while getting your nails done? What’s really happening up there? On average, you might spend at least 1-2 hours spilling hot tea and updates on the latest trending topics. And after the 108452349th time they’ve told you to stay still or relax your hand, you find yourself thinking “damn, is she annoyed with me?”, and the answer is usually no, but yes lol, but also no because we’re so used to it and we’re on autopilot.
But today, the jig is up and the mystery has been unraveled, some of the most talented nail artists I know including myself, are giving you a little preview on what’s going on inside our heads when you can’t quite figure out the outside:
*squints, then has an internal panic attack*
“Is that fungus under her nail?! No wait, it’s guac!” (@theeditorialnail)
*notices client’s fuzzy sweater, looks at client, then back to fuzzy sweater*
“I bet she’s going to touch it and get fuzzies on her polish.” (@nailedit.byamara)
*client can’t stay off their phone*
“I hope her phone dies mid-service -_-” (@tiny.luxury)
*sees hydration deficiency*
“CUTICLE OIL BELOVED!” (@__luxk)
*client has multiple requests and on a time crunch*
“Does she think I’m a magician? lol” (@nailsby.elissa)
*complex nail art session*
“Please don’t start talking while I paint this tiny line” (@nailthought)
*client wants a jewel covered mani*
“It’s going to be hella hard combing out her hair with all those dang charms, but hey she want um” (@nailsbycanishiea)
*everyone can relate to this*
“girl, if you don’t relax this stiff a** hand” (@msladiiz)
*perfectionist mind noticing flaws*
