“Dear Ms. Mallory,

I’m writing to apply for the position of nail technician at the Bellagio Spa. I’ve been doing manicures and pedicures for the last four years in a smaller spa downtown, specializing in advanced decorative techniques.

Doing nails is something that I really enjoy. I love being able to come up with a design that pleases my clients and seeing them leave happier and more confident than when they came in. It’s a way of providing great customer service while allowing me to use my creativity.

Due to area construction, business has fallen off at my current employment, so that I have far less customers than before. Not only does this impact my income, but I really miss doing the work. I’m the type of person that always likes to be busy, rather than sitting around in a break room.

I look forward to meeting with you and discussing more about some of the new designs I’ve developed and how they could be making your customers happier than ever. Thank you for your consideration.”
