  • If no information on nails is provided, French tip is always the safe route to go.
  • Two colors, red and French tip, make up the majority of requests from shooters for fingernails and toenails and it is a very crucial component to arriving on set prepared.
  • It is okay to have a clear or natural shade as well, UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED.
  • If you have your nails painted a wild color, you run the risk of being sent home from a shoot – it is best NOT to test the odds.
  • Keep your nails short and clean at all times, you never know when a shoot opportunity will present itself.
