BEAUTIFY EXCLUSIVE:Q&A with @LongHairPrettyNails
We’re so obsessed with all your nail videos! Tell us about your how your love for nails all began…
I got my love for nails from my mom. She always had a fresh set of acrylic nails. I used to go to the nail salon with her as a child. Every time we went, I would beg to get my nails done but she always said no. When I was 8 years old, she finally let me get little airbrush nail art designs. I remember being so excited and showing all my friends at school. My love for nail art grew from there. Ever since then I practiced doing my nails first with just nail polish and then moving on to acrylic as I got older.
You’re self-taught? (OMG, that’s impressive!) How did you do that?!
Yes, I am self-taught! It happened out of necessity. I didn’t have the money to go to the nail salon as often as I wanted to, so I decided to learn how to do my own nails. It was a struggle lol. It took a few years and lots of practice.
When did you begin filming nail videos and at what point did your audience begin to rapidly grow?
I started my YouTube channel in 2007 and it was mostly about my hair journey. In between hair videos I uploaded makeup and nail videos. I uploaded my first nail video in 2014. The nail videos started to get traction, so I began to focus more on nail videos in 2016. The journey was very slow. It was around 2018 when I saw my audience begin to grow. By 2019 the growth was way more than I ever imagined. By May of 2020 the channel hit 1 million subscribers!
Your ‘Crazy Nail Art’ recreations…whoa these are pretty mind-blowing! What goes into filming these tutorials? It looks like a lot of work!
It is a lot of work and it takes a long time. These types of videos take me about 6-8 hours to film and another 8 hours of editing. I don’t think many people realize how difficult it is to film a nail video. Trying to do a good job on the nails while staying in focus is challenging. I love a challenge though. It’s fun for me to see a crazy nail design and try to figure out how to do it.
As a nail vlogger and influencer, what question do you asked most frequently and how do you respond?
My most frequently asked question is “How do you function with long nails?”. I always answer with the same response. “It’s a lifestyle and it takes practice.”
When did you first discover KISS products? Do you remember your very first KISS experience?
My first experience with KISS products was my mom practicing doing an acrylic nail on my pinky when I was 10 years old. I wasn’t allowed to have acrylic nails at the time, so I was extremely happy for the one acrylic nail lol.
What are some of your favorite KISS nail styles and why are they your faves?
I love the KISS Masterpiece Nails. I just love designs and all the bling.
What do you love about the KISS GelPress Starter Kit? Any additional tips or tricks you can share about this revolutionary nail extension kit?
I love how accessible it is by being available in local stores. You can have the perfect set of nails in no time. My most important tip is making sure to pick the correct size nail tip and file around the cuticle area of the nail tip to match the shape of your natural nail. This is what gives you that salon quality look.
