There’s a buzz around beauty brands these days: sexy, trendy, bold.
But there’s no denying that many of them are little more than tacky fads.
What do they have to do with naked manicuring?
According to the beauty industry, a naked manicured nail is an expression of a woman’s sexuality, and a lot of it is really tacky.
That’s not necessarily true, of course, but what you’re seeing is a product that is marketed to young women.
There’s no shame in being naked, says Sarah Lebron, the founder of the women’s beauty brand, A-List.
You might be embarrassed by it.
But it’s not an excuse to dress up like a prostitute.
Lebon has been around for a while, and she’s seen naked manicurists and the rest of the fashion industry grow.
The most common nail styles she has seen are long and straight, with the nail painted on a pink base.
There are also nail-painting kits that come in a variety of colours.
“It’s about expressing your sexuality in a different way,” she says.
“A naked manicura is an exhibition of your sexuality, your body.
It’s very beautiful, it’s very sensual, and it’s quite beautiful.
It makes you feel beautiful.”
Lebrom’s advice to aspiring nail artists: be aware of your surroundings, and dress appropriately.
“There’s nothing wrong with being a bit sexy,” she adds.
“But do make sure you’re dressed appropriately.
Wear something sexy.
A lot of women have said, ‘I can’t find a woman who would buy my nails.’
When Lebros nail salon in Chinatown opened, it was already a popular spot. “
If you’re wearing a skirt or a dress and you’re going for a sexy look, then that’s OK, but don’t go for a really low-cut look.”

Now it’s a popular place to get a manicure, too.
Lebs is one of the many women who have found success through her nail salon, which also serves as a training centre for young girls and women to become manicure artists.
She says she knows of women who are trying to start their own nail art studios, and wants to encourage them to do the same.
“The best way to get your nails done is to have an appointment,” she explains.
“I’d love to see the industry become more accessible for women.”
The beauty industry has also started an online platform for women to make their own manicures.
Le Brom also says she wants the nail salon to be more accessible, so it’s easier for people to get in touch.
She encourages people to go on Facebook and Instagram and get in contact with people in the nail art community, and says that’s where she gets most of her feedback.
She also encourages anyone who wants to be a manicurist to come to the salon, where she will give them a tour of the facility.
“My main advice is: Don’t wear the clothes you think people will find sexy,” Lebors says.
Lebyrins nail salon is located in Chinatown on the edge of the city, just steps away from the Asian American Cultural Center.
