When it comes to getting your nails done we are filled with options. You can go from the most basic of services to leaving it in the hands of a professional.
During these times of crisis where we are required to stay six feet apart, and where a mask, it is nearly impossible to do as a manicurist. So how do you plan on getting a service safely why following CDC rules? Do it yourself.
For those of us who are simply not comfortable yet going into a salon to get your service, we caught up with one of the industries’ respected brand in the nail industry, Valentino Beauty Pure owner David Dilorenzo and celebrity manicurist, educator Michelle, “Chelly” Soto.
Valentino products are one of the premium gel products on the market and has been tested and approved by several manicuring professionals. We got a chance to chat with David, and get the back story on the use of the products.
Doing a professional manicure is not using the same technique as you would for your mother, or little sister at home. It requires a bit more schooling, product training, and state board licensing.
Now with the COVID-19, there should be absolutely no short cuts taken. Michelle Soto, a 20 year veteran of the nail industry, and award-winning nail art manicurist trained me on the quickest, long-lasting gel manicure services that will last you a few weeks, if done correctly during these challenging times. Her training was efficient and easy to do at home without a hitch.
Michelle, “Chelley”, Soto’s work is a complete work of art. You can see the intricate details of her body of work on her Instagram page, and she comes highly recommended by Valentino the brand she is an educator for.
So if you are looking for quality nail products for your at-home, Zoom wedding, and are simply not ready to go out for a service, contact Valentino Beauty Pure and purchase your products, and feel free to book Chelly’s s_Nails for a Zoom step-by-step training.
