Electric Slide

W

hen I moved to the Upper East Side of Manhattan in 2004, it was the land of natural nails. It has
changed a bit over the years to incorporate more
nail art and enhancements, but when I landed there, I was
hard-pressed to find a nail tech to fill my acrylic set. Once I
finally did, she used hand files for the entire service. While that
is, of course, a more than acceptable way of performing a fill,
it was still somewhat shocking to me considering the fastpaced, time-is-money New York mentality. Just think how
much faster the whole process could have been (I
was there for almost three hours for a simple fill)
had she used an electric file.
Even today, I am surprised by how few
nail professionals use an e-file in their services. I think there is some fear surrounding them (in the form of cuts and nail
damage), but a reckless technician
can do harm even with a seemingly benign tool. What it really
comes down to is education and
practice-because once you
are comfortable with an e-file,
you can incorporate this tool
into practically all of your
services, from manicures to
enhancements to pedicures.
To see the top eight must-have
bits for your arsenal, check out this
month's Workshop on page 52.
As for education, classes are available in a
variety of shapes and forms. Of course, there
are the classics-at shows and through dis-

tributors-but there are new ways of learning where you don't
even have to leave the comfort of your home (or salon). Livestreaming video has become an exceedingly popular way
to get nail education. Beyond simply watching a video, the
live aspect allows you to ask questions and get advice in real
time. Of course, the key with any class is to ensure that the
source and instructor is reputable. Increasingly, manufacturers are incorporating live-streaming video into their resources
and brand educators are conducting their own Facebook and
Instagram live feeds. Keep an eye out for these instructional
videos, as they can definitely boost your education levels.
Conversely, if you have a skill that you want to share, perhaps
you yourself would be the ideal person to host a live-streaming event. They're pretty easy to set up, thanks to the social
media platforms that host them, but there are a few tips and
tricks that will make your video more impressive. See our
suggestions in "The Live Streaming Lowdown" on page 76.
Personally, I love when a skilled technician pulls out an
e-file, because I know the service is going to go faster (and I
get antsy sitting there for so long!). So if you've never tried one
or don't feel like you know enough about them, maybe now's
the time to research e-files or take a class to hone your skills.
After all, in a business where time literally is money, you want
to make sure that you're making the most!

Behind the
Nail Pros...

Cell phones have become an extension of our hands, so naturally we
would want to accessorize them-
and there are so many cute phone
cases available! For our "Summer
Selfies" photo shoot (page 104),
cover artist Reina Santos and I had
a great time going through all of the
options and matching the summer
polishes to them.
