Tammy has Designed 5 Different Nail Liquids...


“clients’ activities different times of the year and clients’ physical chemistry or medications, can affect what type of nail liquid to use”

“I have designed 5 different nail liquids for you to choose from. Each Nail Technician has different needs while doing acrylic nails. Some like a fast setting liquid; some like a slower setting liquid; some like a non-yellowing liquid and some like extra adhesion.

Sometimes even the temperature in your area at different times of the year; clients’ activities different times of the year and clients’ physical chemistry or medications can affect what type of nail liquid to use. I have put together an explanation of each of these nail liquids, characteristics and qualities so it will be easy for you to choose the Tammy Taylor Nail Liquid that fits your needs and your clients needs.”

NOTE: In hot weather, acrylic nails will set up faster; in cold weather, acrylic nails will set up slower:
The Tammy Taylor “Original” Nail Liquid is designed to do fast nails year round with no crystallizing in the winter.

Original Nail Liquid:
  • Can be used with all of the Tammy Taylor Nail Powders, including Prizma.
  • Fastest drying (fastest setting).
  • Hard finish.
  • Tremendous strength to eliminate cracking & breaking.
  • Super durable.
  • Resists staining.
  • UVA and UVB inhibitors.

The Tammy Taylor “A+” Nail Liquid is designed to keep your “white’s whiter” and your “pinks brighter”.

A+ Nail Liquid:

  • Can be used with all of the Tammy Taylor Nail Powders.
  • 90% less yellowing than other nail liquids on the market.
  • Lower odor.
  • Excellent durability.
  • Easy to file.
  • Easy application.
  • Fast drying (fast setting)
  • Extra UVA and UVB inhibitors to prevent whites from yellowing and pinks from fading.
  • Resists staining.

The Tammy Taylor “Xtra-Adhesion” Nail Liquid was designed especially for clients with special acrylic nail needs. Some clients have fingernails that are difficult for acrylic to adhere to and need an extra boost in the nail liquid to help adhesion and eliminate lifting.

Use 2-3 coats of Tammy Taylor Nail Primer and Xtra-Adhesion Nail Liquid for all clients who have lifting problems. Some clients are very sensitive and the Xtra-Adhesion Nail Liquid can also be used without primer for these clients.

Xtra-Adhesion Nail Liquid:

  • Can be used with all Tammy Taylor Nail Powders, including Prizma.
  • Extra boost for adhesion.
  • Fast drying (fast set).
  • Ease of application.
  • Extra durability.
  • Tremendous strength to eliminate cracking and breaking.
  • Created for clients with lifting problems and clients who have sensitive fingernails.
  • UVA and UVB inhibitors.
  • Resists staining.
The Tammy Taylor “(S-Set)” Nail Liquid (aka) Summer Nail Liquid is a slower setting nail liquid, designed originally for summertime or hot weather, but also works great year round. That is why it will be re-named (S-Set) Slower Setting Nail Liquid instead of Summer; so there will be no confusion for those who want a slower setting nail liquid in all types of weather.

(S-Set) Nail Liquid:

  • Can be used with all of the Tammy Taylor Nail Powders including Prizma.
  • Slower drying (slower setting).
  • Hard finish.
  • Tremendous strength to eliminate cracking and breaking.
  • Super durable.
  • Easy application.
  • Easy to file.
  • UVA and UVB inhibitors.
  • Resists staining.
Tammy Taylor “Odor-less” Nail Liquid was designed especially for State Board examinations and Nail Schools that cannot have any odor. This liquid can be used with Tammy Taylor Prizma Powders, Tammy Taylor Original Nail Powders and Tammy Taylor Odor-less Nail Powders. Do not use with Tammy Taylor (S-Set) Nail Powder (aka) Summer Nail Powder.


Thank you,
Tammy Taylor

CURE NAIL BITERS FOREVER!


CURE NAIL BITERS FOREVER!



Are you or anyone you know a Nail Biter?


I was also a nail biter until I put on my first set of Sculptured Nails applied with Nail Forms not Plastic Nail tips.



Nail Biters do not do well with plastic tips glued on and then acrylic applied over them, because they are too easy to chew off.
A Full Set of Sculptured Nails applied with Nail Forms are too difficult to CHEW OFF because they are very strong. Also you do not want to CHEW them off because they are so Beautiful.


I have found that most Nail Biters are Perfectionists and when there nails are Beautiful they do not Chew on them.


I am the perfect example, I have not Chewed my nails for 27 years.


I want to show you how you can cure Nail Biting forever.
Watch
this video on how to do Beautiful Sculptured Nails applied with Nail Forms not Plastic Nail tips and then e-mail me for a Tammy Taylor Nail Technician near you.


I am giving you my entire "How to do Nail biters" Video,FREE on the web. Just click

Back to the Fundamentals


Back to the Fundamentals

What makes you Money?
In order for you to run a successful Nail business, whether it is your own Salon or you own Clientele;
you need to know what makes you money, and what does not make you money.


If you are not making $ .50 cents a minute or more, you can Only Do one of 3 things:



  • 1. Increase your Speed

  • 2. Charge more

  • 3. Remove that service from your menu

If you continue to do things that are not profitable, you could start struggling in your business. You must analyze every single thing you do that pertains to your business (If you want to make a profit).

Be Honest and let’s do an evaluation:



  • #1 Do you know exactly to the penny, how much money you made last Wednesday?

  • #2 Do you make at least $15.00 every 30 minutes on every single Service, or extras that you offer?
    Example: Nail art? Gels? Wraps? Pedicures? Manicures? Acrylics?

  • #3 Do you know the Name, Cell phone #, Address and E-mail, on every single New Client; that you have done in the last 90 days?

  • #4 Do you know the Cell phone #, Address, E-mail and Birthday of every single Client; you have done in the last 30 days?

  • #5 Do you do at least 30 Clients a week?
If you answered Maybe or No, to any of the above Questions, we need to make some changes quickly, starting today!

All of these need to be answered 100% YES, or you could start having some business struggles.

Making a profit is not difficult if you concentrate on one problem at a time.


LET’S GET STARTED
This week will be our 1st week and we will start with
Question #1: Keeping track of your money.



  • 1. Get a zipper money bag: you can use a zipper cosmetic bag (not see-through).

  • 2. Put every single penny you receive in the bag.

  • 3. If you take out even one penny, put in a little slip of paper how much you took.

  • 4. At the end of the day, preferably alone, count your money and put the amount on a small personal calendar.

Do this Every Single Day, no matter what!

Next week, this will be our 2nd week and we will work on
Question #2: Keeping your services profitable.
Keep a small note pad next to you in your drawer and write down every single thing you do on every single Client, and how much you charged.
Examples:



  • Anna: I did a Spa Pedicure and put on 10 Rhinestones and a small flower – 1 hr 17 minutes (77 minutes) I charged $40.00 = $.52 cents a minute

  • Gina: I did a Pink & White fill-in, but she has not been in for 3 ½ weeks, and I had to make repairs on her - 58 minutes ) I charged $35.00 = $.60 cents a minute

  • Diane: I did a Full set of Tips w/Gel overlay with polish – 1 hr 30 minutes (90 minutes) ) I charged $35.00 = $.38 cents a minute

  • Jackie: I did a Silk wrap fill-in with 1 repair and 1 replacement, and with a French manicure – 1 hr 10 minutes (70 minutes) )
    I charged $30.00 = $.43 cents a minute

  • Cynthia: Extra long acrylic nails fill-in with air brushing – 1 hr 25 minutes (85 minutes) ) I charged $35.00 = $.41 cents a minute

Now lets divide $____ divided by Time (money divided by time)
Example:
$35.00 divided by 90 minutes = $.38 cents a minute
$35.00 divided by 58 minutes = $.60 cents a minute

Now, if you are not making $ .50 cents a minute or more, you can Only Do one of 3 things:
1. Increase your Speed
2. Charge more
3. Remove that service from your menu

On the 3rd Week we will work on
Question #3 and #4: Keeping track of your clients.



  • Go to the store and buy an Address book, and every single Client that sits down at your table, before you even start your service, Write Down their: Full name; Cell #; E-mail address and Birthday.

  • Then write all your birthdays down in the back of your book, by Month and Day.

  • Make sure you mail a Birthday card to everyone on that list, 1 week before their Birthday, even if you have not seen them in 3 months. This is the cheapest easiest advertisement and good will you could invest in.

On the 4th week we will work on
Question #5: Getting more clients.



  • GO TO "Nail FAQS by Topic" and print out every article with a $ sign next to it and WATCH your “How to Survive the Nail Business in the New Millennium” video.

Now you are on your way to increasing your profit and keeping your business strong.


Have a Great Nail Day,
With Love,
Tammy Taylor
