So You Want To Do Nails....

~~~~~~NEW IN 2010!~~~~~

So... you want to be a Nail Tech? AWESOME! It is the GREATEST JOB IN THE WORLD! Sadly, very few people are choosing this career any more..

It is a tough career choice, but if you are doing what you love, then it is never work!

In 2010, I am cranking up a mentoring program to help you learn how to get started in the nail industry!

Are you a new tech entering the industry? Or a tech who has been in the business for a while but want to improve your application skills or learn a new product? Contact me and we will schedule a Mentor Session.
I will teach you gel and/or acrylic enhancement application, Minx application, varied nail art techniques, different product lines and many tips and tricks of the trade! I will help you learn to market yourself and your services! And much more!
My name is Melody C. Montgomery and I have been a licensed manicurist since 1995.
I attended Mitchell's Academy in Goldsboro, NC to study manicuring and I am a Nail Design Grand Master certified by Creative Nail Design. I have been trained by some of the industry's top nail artists and educators in the nation! Recently having learned a brand new trend-setting style of nail design and products, I now provide custom nail design as well as the newest innovative trend in nail art, Minx !
I stay on top of new advancements in technology, new products and techniques because it is my mission to provide the newest trends in the nail enhancement/ natural nail industry. I provide a wide variety of nail services geared toward natural nails as well as enhancement services that include gels, acrylics, and even wraps, in some cases.
It is my belief that what separates my work from everyone else is that I customize your services to create a look that JUST FOR YOU!
Not only have I been professionally trained and licensed by many of the top names in the Nail Industry; my sanitation standards exceed those required by the State Board of Cosmetic Arts.
REMEMBER to check my website DAILY, as I make changes and run different specials weekly... sometimes DAILY! Also you will always find good deals at the Special Promotions page as well as other educational information for my clients as I build this website over time.
Be sure to join my blog to stay on top of up and coming products and trends in nail fashion as well as learn what is truth and fiction regarding nail salons and products. By becoming a member, it just means you will receive emails when I post new blogs!
I have tried to design my services so that anyone can feel comfortable to come and be pampered! I include a lot of service in my pricing that you will not get anywhere else. You won't know until you come and find out what the difference is!
Look forward to seeing you soon!

Welcome to 2010!

Welcome to 2010! The new decade is bringing new things in fashion and nails!

Manicures and pedicures are no longer about getting polished.. but about BEING POLISHED and an essential part of the whole fashion statement. "Bling" was a term coined in 2009 and will be more popular than ever this year. Nail "art" has evolved into "Nail Jewelry" and fast becoming the finishing touch in any wardrobe.

Colors this year will be metallic golds and silvers, whether designed in custom gels or acrylics or just polish on natural nails.

Pictured here are Stiletto nails designed in custom-colored acrylics created by one of my favorite nail artists, Nickolette Balaugh. You can find more of her work on Facebook!

Nail enhancements are changing dramatically using colors, glitters and mylars to create gorgeous designs for the wearer based on their personal tastes in colors and shapes.

MINX nails will still be on the forefront bringing nail design to natural nails without causing damage. Their new "Tease" line of products have revolutionized nail art for nails without adding enhancements. Of course, Minx can be applied to enhancements as well!

Pictured here are Minx nails applied by me on one of my newest clients. As shown here, you can mix and match different designs in any way you choose!

Minx has many different colors and designs to choose from and I keep several different ones on hand.

Where can you get YOUR customized nail fashion or nail jewelry? Where else but at Salon 535 in Ayden where I am located! I have many time slots available including evenings and Saturdays in order to accomodate even the most hectic of schedules!
