The Senior Session Prep Guide – Sharing 4 Nail Care Tips

One common question I get asked by the seniors I work with is, “What color should I paint my nails?” or, “What nail colors photograph well?”. After booking, I always send my seniors the senior session prep guide so they know exactly what to do with their nails for their senior pictures.

Here are just a few helpful tips from the nail prep section of the senior session prep guide:

  1. Stay with a neutral shade (white or beige) or opt for the classic French tip. Neon colors are only your friend if they coordinate with all your outfits.
  2. Make sure your hands are moisturized before your session. Bring an emergency hand cream with you just in case you need to reapply mid-session. Dry hands do not photograph well, especially when they’ll be next to your face in some pictures.  
  3. Take a good look at your nails a few days before your session. Make sure there are no paint chips or broken tips. If you’re wearing press-on nails, remember to bring an emergency nail glue with you in case one accidentally pops off during the session! 
  4. Don’t forget about your toenails, especially if you’re wearing open-toe shoes! If you’re getting your nails professionally done, why not add on a pedicure?
