You need to have a "Great Powder" to do "Great Nails"

You need to have a "Great Powder" to do "Great Nails"

"You need to have a great nail powder to do great nails that keep your clients coming back. All of my nail powders look and feel very natural. When I started doing nails, all we had was clear or a light white color that was used on the entire nail and covered with color nail polish. I did not like to wear polish when I did nails because it was too messy, so I created Pink and White Powders that looked like a French Manicure but did not get messy when doing nails. The clients went crazy for my signature Tammy Taylor Pink and White look and the rest is history."

Tammy Taylor Nail Powders have been developed to perform under every circumstance for every client and for every nail technician. Tammy Taylor nail powders have been the most talked about nail powders in the nail industry for over 20 years.

Tammy Taylor personally tests every single batch for performance, color, clarity and consistency before it is filled into jars for nail technicians. Tammy Taylor Nail Powders are made in the U.S.A.

Tammy Taylor Powders can be shaped while drying and they have been developed to cure gradually as they set up. This gives you time to shape the famous Tammy Taylor C-Curve into your nails before it gets hard, giving your nails that beautiful natural looking, slender, curved and strong nail that keeps your clients coming back.

Tammy Taylor Nail Powders are available in 2 different work-abilities for your nail application style. Both the Original and (S-Set) Nail Powder (aka) Summer Nail Powder have all the outstanding colors, features and qualities you have come to know and trust.

Nail Fungus Can Be Prevented!

Nail Fungus Can Be Prevented!

Onycholysis (loosening of the nail-plate) is the perfect environment for a fungal infection to start growing and turn into Onychomycosis, a fungal infection. Onychomycosis (Fungus) will continue to cause separation of the nail plate from the nail bed (Distal Subungual and Candida) and can be transferred to the other fingernails and the toenails.
Nail Fungus usually starts when a loosening of the nail plate occurs. The loosening of the nail plate can happen by damage or trauma to the natural nail.


Some Examples:

  • Slamming nails in a door.

  • Pulling nails backwards on car door handles.

  • Picking off artificial nails instead of soaking them off.

  • Using a drill on top of the naked natural nail, causing heat and friction.

  • Any puncture to the Hyponychium.

  • Wearing toenails too long and shoes too tight.

  • Cleaning out from under nails with a metal implement.

  • Fingernails too long for an active life style.

  • Clipping toenails too short and cutting the Hyponychium.

  • Strong cleaning chemicals.

  • Gardening without gloves.
Some signs you might see or feel after the trauma or damage but before the nail fungus (Onychomycosis) starts:

  • Loosening of the nail plate.

  • A feeling like a little splinter is under the natural nail, but you cannot see it.

  • The nails feel sensitive when picking up something or hitting them against something.

  • The natural nails feels loose.

  • The natural nail looks like the white free-edge is growing down the nail bed and the pink nail bed is getting shorter.

What to do to help Prevent Nail Fungus:

  • Use Tammy Taylor Thymolize Everyday.

    Onycholysis (loosening of the nail plate) is not a fungus but it is susceptible to fungus.

    We recommend scrubbing with Tammy Taylor Anti-Bacterial Soft Soak and a Tammy Taylor Plastic Manicure Brush. Then, follow with Tammy Taylor Thymolize underneath the free-edge, especially with artificial nails, at least once a day as prevention. So if there is Onycholysis, loosening of the nail plate, Tammy Taylor Thymolize should help prevent it from becoming Onychomycosis (Fungus).
Fungus is not virus. Fungus is not a bacteria. Fungus is a fungus!


If you do have a fungus, we recommend using Tammy Taylor Thymolize 3-5 times a day underneath the free-edge at the Hyponychium, every day, until the natural nail reattaches.

The same goes for toenails.

Note: Remove any artificial nail covering.

If you do not see any improvement within 7 days, please see a physician. There are several physicians who recommend Tammy Taylor Thymolize.

(In talking to a doctor in Newport Beach, California, he said he did not like the oral medications like Griseofulvin, where the cure rate is low and there are side-effects for fingernail and toenail fungus; nor did he like the idea of the medication traveling throughout the body and through the liver before it got to the fingernails or toenails. And, this would also entail additional testing of the liver to see if it could handle it. A good topical product would be best.)

Underdog Wins... You Are the Star

Editorial: “The Underdog Wins and You Are the Star”


by Tammy Taylor
CEO of Tammy Taylor Nails, Inc.


Those that want to make more money and those that actually put their mind to making more money: are 2 different stories.

I was going through my website searching through all the web-videos, printed articles and anything that pertained to doing better nails; improving your business, and making more money; and I was AMAZED! There were at least 100 pages of information and hours & hours of web-videos, FREE!

So, I started thinking and trying to figure out why a Nail Technician who is not making enough money, and/or not doing Great Nails, would not have GRABBED onto all of these FREE resources and run with them!

And what I figured out was: When you are down already, because you do not feel your Nails are good enough, or your bills are piling up, and you are not making enough money; little things like retailing a Tammy Taylor Thymolize or cleaning your Station, or watching a Tammy Taylor Nail Procedure video, or passing out business cards, or practicing on your Tammy Taylor Practice Sheet, or reading about “How To Do Better Nails”, and all the “How To…” make money articles I have written; just does not seem like enough to get you out of this jam; because you feel like you need it all today; and fast.


STOP!
This is exactly the attitude that is stopping you from making money! And from doing GREAT NAILS!

Stop watching your life like it’s a television show and get in the middle of your life: And be the main character! This will make a HUGE difference.

It does not matter if you are just starting or if you have been in the business for 25 years. You need to always keep learning. Just like a director knows everything and everyone in their show, you need to learn about everyone and everything in your show, called your life.

For your show, you need to start working on your script and decide if you want instant fame, instant fortune or win the lotto. Nahh! None of these shows would be interesting enough. All the best shows are about ordinary people with lots of trials and tribulations, and how they overcome them. We all love a happy ending when the underdog wins!

Really, you are the underdog right now; and how does the underdog always win? Just like Rocky, Tammy or the American Idol: Through determination and Hard work! ___Your name here___ Let’s not just talk about it! Let’s do it!

Building a successful business is a slow steady process, but it is worth it! It will take one client, one nail, one class, one video, one article and one business card at a time.

My business has always been built around one nail at a time and one client at a time. A business needs to have loyal clients who refer their friends. This is how you flourish and grow. (I have been in this Nail industry 26 years, since I was 18 years old, and my business was built on referrals.)

The average Tammy Taylor Nail Tech sticks with my Tammy Taylor Team and me until they retire. Because, they know that no other nail company is going to care as much about them and their business as we do. Also, they know I personally use and test all of my products, assuring quality every time. And, I write all of my own Education from my personal experience.

SO, LET’S GET OVER, “THAT’S NOT GOING TO WORK OR I TRIED THAT ALREADY” ATTITUDE. LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS!

How about this for a script:
“Broke Nail Technician makes it big in the Nail business. In 2 years, she owns her own Full Service Salon. In 3 years, she has 6 people working for her. In 4 years, she manages her Salon full time and only does an occasional favorite nail client; and she takes her family on vacation 2 times a year!

WHAT A GREAT SHOW, THE UNDERDOG WINS AND YOU ARE THE STAR!
YOUR OWN SHOW! YOUR OWN BUSINESS! YOUR OWN LIFE!

Here is a List to Get You Started TODAY (“YOU CAN DO IT!”)

Voted the Very Best Brush by Nail Technicians

Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Brushes are so superior that they have even been voted the very Best Nail Brushes by Nail Technicians.

“All of my Kolinsky Sable Brushes are hand-made right here in the United States of America. I do not use just any sable and my Kolinsky Sable is carefully hand chosen for its color, texture and quality.”

“My brushes are carefully shaped and hand assembled by wonderful brush artisans, who take great pride in their work. Before I started making my own brushes here in the United States, many brushes were imported from other countries, by art companies who knew nothing about sculptured nail brushes.”



Tammy Taylor

History of the Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Brush:
I am very particular about my sculptured nail brushes, and a beautiful brush is the key to making Beautiful Nails. When I first started doing nails in my Salon, around 1981, I struggled with trying to find the perfect brush. I went through a lot of brushes and wasted a lot of money.

At that time, there were 2 shapes of brushes; round brushes and flat brushes. I liked the round brushes because they would hold enough liquid to make a good-ball-consistency and they stroked the product well without leaving brush marks.

What I did not like about the round brush was how pointy it was when I was working around the cuticle area, or how fat it was when I was trying to pat the product.

I liked the flat brushes because they were better when patting the free-edge and working around the cuticle. But I did not like how the flat brush could not hold enough liquid, making the balls too dry, too small and leaving brush marks in the product.

So, I customized my own brush! I would take a round brush and then squeeze the Ferrule with pliers to put a slight crimp in it. This gave me a brush that had the consistency and flow of a round brush, and the control of a flat brush. This slightly crimped Ferrule, that I created over 25 years ago, is used by most nail companies today, and is the most popular style in the Nail industry.

10 different Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Brushes to Choose from:
The Tammy Taylor Custom Kolinsky Sable Brushes are the perfect tool to create Beautiful Nails with ease. I have created 10 brushes, and the Tammy Taylor Custom “Oval” Kolinsky Sable Brushes are available in 4 sizes:





  1. The small is about a #6 - great for toenails.


  2. The medium is about a #7 – great for short to medium nails.


  3. The large is about a #8 – great for medium to long nails.


  4. The X-large is about a #9 – great for long to extra long nails.


The larger the brush, the more liquid it holds and makes a bigger ball.



The Tammy Taylor Custom “Flat” Kolinsky Sable Brush is a little flatter then the Tammy Taylor Custom “Oval”, which makes the “Flat” brush really easy to sculpt free-edges, and it still holds plenty of liquid for ball consistency and flow.



The Tammy Taylor Custom “Flat” Kolinsky Sable Brushes are available in 3 sizes:





  1. The small is about a #6 – great for toenails.


  2. The medium is about a #7 – great for short to medium nails.


  3. The large is about a #8 – great for medium to long nails.


I have also created 3 Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Nail Art Brushes:





  1. The Tammy Taylor Striper Brush.


  2. The Tammy Taylor Detail Brush.


  3. The “brand new” Tammy Taylor 3-D Nail Art Brush.












How to take care of your Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Brushes:
I am very particular about my own personal brushes. I have a certain way I like to clean my brushes, and a certain way I like to form the tip while they dry. Also, I have a certain way to store them.

When you take proper care of your Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Brushes, they can last for years. I always have at least 3 brushes ready, and this way I can rotate my brushes while I am doing nails.

When one brush gets dirty, I place it in my Tammy Taylor Conditioning Brush Cleaner and then use a different brush. By having extra brushes, I am not in a hurry to clean my brush so I do not start picking at it or cutting it. Good brushes like these are expensive and they need to be taken care of.

I only use Tammy Taylor Conditioning Brush Cleaner to clean my brushes. I do not use acetone or polish remover because the chemicals ruin the sable hairs.

I use the “black” deep-well Tammy Taylor Dappen Dish for my liquid and I use the “white” deep-well Tammy Taylor Dappen Dish for my brush cleaner. By having the 2 different colors, I do not accidentally make nails with my brush cleaner.

After my brush has been in the Tammy Taylor Brush Cleaner long enough to soften the hard acrylic, I just wipe it off on a Tammy Taylor “Towelette”. Be careful not to bend the hair too much when wiping, as the sable hairs can break off.

After cleaning my Tammy Taylor Brush, I dip it in my Tammy Taylor liquid and slightly wipe it off to shape the tip. The Tammy Taylor liquid also conditions and helps keep the brush shaped just how I like it. If your Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Brush hairs get bent, just run warm water over the hairs and re-shape them. Then, store it in my Tammy Taylor Form Holder, with the brush hairs pointing upward.
