Models Wanted!

Competition & Editorial Models

Now that my nail competition season is starting and my student courses are filling up, I will need hand models for specific competitions and editorials. First and foremost- each set is artist choice. I specialize in competition style nails and need models able to wear what I apply on them. These sets will be filmed, photographed and used for educational, competitive or social media purposes. 

Please skim through the details on this page if you are interested in becoming one of my hand models. Ideally I would love to find a couple models that can visit regularly.


Photos are examples of the current styles that I will need a model for but please bear in mind being a model of mine is 100% artist's choice. 


Photos & 


To be considered for an upcoming model position I will need photos of your hands in order to possibly select you as a hand model. Please have the top and bottom of your hand up to wrists photographed. All hand models will be filmed and/or photographed during the process, so photo submissions are vital before moving forward. I do need specific nail sizes, so seeing your photos helps me in the selection process. Your face will never be filmed but I require all hand models to sign a release form before we begin.




This is a scheduled appointment, and these rules must be followed at all times or the appointment will be cancelled.

Do NOT be late! Please don't be late. My time, like your time is valuable and tardiness is a huge set peeve of mine. A text takes seconds to send, if you're running late please let me know before your scheduled appointment time. For this reason alone is why I require a deposit* (you'll get it back if you show up!)

This is 100% artist's choice. Models may receive a set with two different hand designs, including but not limited to shape, colors, techniques, nail art, etc. Because I have a constant flow of events and publications, my models must be ok with 100% artist's choice. I will not edit, alter, redo or remove the nails and designs once done. 

If this is for a special event, I am willing to work with a particular theme; wedding, French, solid color to name a few, I do have a need for that style of model as well! It will still be artist's choice but I am willing to work with you for your special event- just ask!

No extra guests or entourage, please. My studio is fairly quaint and as a studio rule I do not allow extra guests.

Models must be 18+ as even though I am only photographing and filming your hands, a release may be required. 


*Deposit Required

While this is a free "service" in a clean and monitored location, a deposit is due to hold your spot. I do this because our scheduled appointment is a contract for a set time and date. I am reserving the right to keep the deposit if the model does not show up or doesn't communicate any change to the appointment time  48 hours before the appointment time. If the model arrives on time and allows the full service and design to be completed, including final photographs/videos the deposit will be returned immediately or within 24 hours of completion of the set.

The sets are free, I just need to make sure my model shows up for the full amount of time! That's all!



Does this sound like something you would like to try out?
