Nail Artist Q&A: "Nailed Down!" with Amanda Rossi
Welcome to NAILPRO's NAILED DOWN where we “nail down” the details of selected nail design artists from our User Galleries.
This week we visit Cape Coral, Florida.
Meet Amanda Rossi:
How would you describe yourself?
I am fun, outgoing, creative and caring!
Tell us about how you got started in the nail industry.
I got started about eight years ago in New York. I grew up in the industry. My mom owned two salons and was a nail tech herself. In my opinion, there is no better career. I absolutely love my clients and trying new ideas!
What/Who inspires your work?
My clients. I love putting our minds together to create a one-of-a-kind design!
Are there any tool(s) you can't live without?
My small sculpting brush for 3-D Art!!!
Do you have a favorite technique or style?
Sculpted nails including stilettos and edge nails.
What is your craziest/funniest nail story?
I was asked to do cow print edge nails. It was fun and something I never had done before!
What tip can you offer to other nail technicians?
Stay true to what you love and don't let anyone put a lid on your creativity or growth.
Anything else you'd like to add?
I don't strive to become rich doing nails. I strive to inspire people to chase what makes them happy because ever since I became a nail tech, I have not "worked" a day in my life!
