Answering a Reader Question #296
Hey Dania to piggy back of this post. Do you know if having acrylic and designs on nails is frowned upon?
Hey, Chenoa! :-)
Having fancy acrylic nails and designs are typically frowned upon by agencies and clients because they are super distracting. This doesn't mean models can never have these on their nails but it is important to know that you'll be asked to arrive to castings and gigs with clean, natural nails. I've come across many modeling casting calls where the client will specifically state that models chosen must have clean, natural nails. Sometimes they allow for clear or light colored polish or a French manicure.
If you model part-time or once in a while, this won't be as much of a concern but if you're heavily into modeling and are regularly attending castings and shoots, it's in your best interest to keep your nails more natural. If you do acrylics, opt for a cleaner look instead of a fancy one with designs, glitter or gems.
