Have Job, Will Travel
Traveling isn’t just for vacation. Many nail techs work as manufacturers’ educators and they’re on the road often for their “second” jobs. Here’s a glimpse into the life of a few nail professionals who are always on the go.

Homing in on Hair Removal
Summer’s almost here. Are you ready for the influx of clients who will want to be waxed, tweezed, and threaded of unsightly hair in time for their beach vacations? NAILS provides the information you need to consider supplementing your menu with this easy add-on service – for this summer’s clients and beyond.

Salon Design on a Dime
Just like nails, salons can benefit from a touch up and a fresh coat of paint every now and then. While a complete makeover can be costly and take a ton of time, there are a few small changes you can make that will go a long way. For less than $150 you can afford great accents at every price point in between. With deals like these, there’s really no excuse to not invest in your salon’s appearance.

Glitter and Glitz
From rhinestones and beads for the 3-D look to glitter striping paints and actual loose glitters, a little (or a lot) of sparkle goes a long way to making your clients giddy with excitement. Whether you brush the loose glitters on top of the sticky layer of your favorite gel-polish or add it into your acrylic powder or gels, these nail art accessories are sure to help your clients. Bling. It. On.
