OPI Pro Spotlight: @nailsbytaylorjustine
Looking to feel inspired in the New Year? For our first Pro Spotlight of 2022, we’ve caught up with #opinailboss and natural nail specialist Taylor Justine aka @nailsbytaylorjustine.
Discover why her grandma started her nail obsession, her advice for newbies, and the reason she loves natural nails.
OPI: What made you get involved in the nail industry?
OPI: Any tips for other nail techs who are starting out?
Justine: Take. Your. Time. When I first started out I would take 2+ hours to do a set of nails. I wouldn’t settle for anything less than perfection and my clients appreciated this. Also, find something that makes your work stand out from other nail techs in your area and hone in on it!
OPI: How and why did you start focusing on natural nails, and becoming a specialist in that style?
OPI: What do you love most about being a nail tech?
Justine: I love seeing how proud all of my clients are to be able to grow strong and healthy nails.
OPI: You're building an impressive social following. How do you continue to help your social media following grow?
OPI: What's your favorite nail art/look for clients in the New Year season?
Justine: I love a good sheer, neutral, nail polish - OPI put it in neutral being my all-time fave. It’s the perfect base for any nail art. For New Year's, I would suggest going for a light coat of champagne shimmer, or mixed metallic starbursts
OPI: With natural nails, what's your favorite nail tool to use on clients?
