Nail models needed

Hello everybody!

I posted an ad here for nailcare about 2 years ago, but started a full time job shortly after and needless to say: I did not really have time to pursue a career as nail stylist.

After becoming a mother last year I quit my job and am now again doing nails from our home in Rüti ZH.

In order to get started up I have the following specials for nail models till 30 April 2012:

Manicure: CHF 20
+ French: CHF 24
+ Nailart: CHF 28

Gel on own nails: CHF 35
+ French: CHF 40
+ Nailart: CHF 45

Nailtips: CHF 50
+ Colourgel: CHF 52
+ French: CHF 55
+ Nailart: CHF 60

Mothers with kids welcome! I have a large play pen for the little ones, as well as changing station and nursing area available.

Please make reservation by SMS: 079 376 5614.

Hope to spoil you with a manicure soon!

Welwitschia

Re: Nail models needed

A friend of mine pays about 130 to get her nails done per month. Are you able to profit on your rates?

Definitely. Now that I know the price of the products, those who ask 130 are doing a huuuuuuge profit IMO.

Re: Nail models needed

Thanks for your posts. Like I said, the special is only for the month of April. I first need to get clients and have people to "know about me".

After that I will have to go up with the prices, but will not charge as much as the big nail studios. My idea is to have a "studio" where also (especially) moms with small kids can come, because I know how tough it can be when you don`t have a babysitter and would like to have some pampering done..so if you know of such a mom or anybody else who would like to have an affordable manicure..

Re: Nail models needed

Hi Welwitschi,

i wish you the best in your new project I think its great you focus it for women with kids, do you also have someone to take care of the kids? I ask you because in my experience kids usually want to be near the work area, so it might get a bit difficult, but not impossible.

All the best,

Coco.

Re: Nail models needed

Hi Coco!

Thanks for your wishes! I saw that you`re also doing nails, so am sure you know how hard it is to get the business running.

To answer your question: I do not have a babysitter (yet), but do have a huge playpen with double bed matress inside right next to the working area. This way not only do the kiddies see and hear mom, but mom can also see what mischief the little ones are up to. Also, we have lots of toys suitable for different age groups. The son of the last mom who came for manicure preferred to watch a DVD, also within eyesight of mom..

How is your business actually going along? Do you have many customers?

Best Regards
Welwitschia

Re: Nail models needed

All sounds great, im glad you have it all sorted out. Yes, I have really nice ladies coming for nails, but I cant always find the time for all who call.
Be patient and keep a good work, and your clients will recommend you to their friends and also in this forum people gets to see your work, so I would encourage you to keep the practice and post pics everytime you get a chance
have a nice busy weekend

Re: Nail models needed

There seems to be some confusion as to the location of Rüti ZH.

There are (I believe) 4 Rüti in Switzerland. We are in Rüti between Wetzikon ZH and Rapperswil SG.
Both of these cities are 8 minutes by train from us. Zürich city is 25 minutes by train from us.

Wishing you all a fab easter Sunday!

Regards Welwitschia

Re: Nail models needed

I now also do paraffin baths: when as part of the treatment, add CHF 15. For mini-manicure with paraffin bath, no polish: CHF 35. Offer also only till end of April.

Babysitter will now be available for duration of treatment!

SMS or pm me for appointment.

Have a fabulous weekend!
