Thread Name: Playing With Acrylic Finger Nails
Subject: RE: Help: Playing With Acrylic Finger Nails
This is funny, sort of. I went to three different places. One place only had one employee in at the time and she was busy. At the other two, both women I talked to were surprised I only wanted three nails done, didn't have a clue what to charge (but were leaning toward half-price, or $18) and told me the nails probably wouldn't hold up.
I guess you have to be a big hairy guy to get them to consider unusual requests. Becoming a big hairy guy is waaaay beyond my budget, and there's enough of you around already.
So it's back to the kit. If I get really good, maybe I can get a license and set up practice in a music shop doing picker's pickers. "Yes, this is the Edward Scissorhands look, popularised by Jed Marum, and over here we have the Big Mick style where we apply 2" of nail and then chisel off 1.8"
And why DON'T music shops have manicurists?! They could come in once a week or so...
