It’s good to work from home for yourself. I have been working from a small studio in my home now for seven and a half years. You can fit your work around your lifestyle. There are ups and downs with working from home though, like clients thinking you are available 24/7, but educate them from the beginning on the hours that you work. If you do have any problems with a clients nails, then it does make you reasearch why, and you do learn fast how to overcome any problems. This is a good learning tool are you are taking on all the responsability and have no one else around to sort it out for you.
I did used to wear a uniform, but found uncomfortable. Now I dress smart/casual, and I think as I am working from home my clients like this as it’s more relaxed, and to be honest, as long as you produce a lovely set of nails and the client is happy with them, I don’t think they worry too much as to what you wear.
