The world is Crazy right now, with this virus going around the world we are all in Lockdown , business’ are closing , nobody can work unless they are a key worker. So what that means for us in the Nail and Beauty Industry is that we cannot work.
I wanted to be able to find a way to generate some income from my business whilst it was closed as Im not eligible for any business grants.
I’ve been wanting to do Press on Nails for a while , I always saw them online and they always appealed to me. Yes your going to have clients that want their nails done but then there is a different market out there of people (I won’t just say Ladies) that Press on Nails appeal to. I really miss doing nails and now that Im sat at home doing nothing I thought this was the perfect time to launch this side of my business that I always wanted to do.
I’ve obviously got all the nail tools already but I needed to purchase some additional items to be able to start offering Press On Nails. I headed over to amazon and bought some items to get me started. I even filmed a You Tube Video (another hobby of mine) to help other people get started. A lot of the videos already on You Tube were based in the States so wanted to create a video that would relate to the UK Nail Techs out there. Here is a link to the video if you wanted to watch it.
I’ve got the supplies, Ive even painted a couple of sets of nails. I posted on my Instagram, Facebook and updated my website to showcase to any potential Clients , I even sent out a newsletter.
I’m sat here now at home dying to get on with orders and start designing some nails , but so far I’ve not had any orders!!! I thought it would be a lot easier than this. I thought people would come flocking to me , and orders would be coming out of my ears, but boy was I wrong. I know its a hard time for a lot of people and spending money on nails probably isn’t on the top of their priority list. So I thought what else can I do??
I already have a little Etsy Shop where I was selling my Nail Polish Enamel Pin, so thought I would post some items on there. I’ve just finished uploading my Listings ,including some additional items for purchase like the Nail Glue and Prep Kits. I’m sure that I will have to go and do some amendments.
I still actually need to measure all my nails that I have and create images for people to be able to see whats on offer when I say Short Oval for example so I will be doing that this afternoon.
I’m considering even listing on Ebay so will take a look on their site and see if they have any Listing Offers. Will probably be a job for some point this week so I will keep you updated on that if I do it.
Heres a Link to my Etsy Shop if you want to take a look:
If theres anything in particular that you would like me to write about in more detail then please let me know. I mean I’ve got the time.
Thanks for Reading!
Until Next Time.
