This is NAILS' annual BIG BOOK, filled with information critical to doing nails as a professional. The Big Book has a full directory of the top nail product manufacturers, every U.S. state board list contact information (including key licensing detail like whether you can have a mobile salon in each state and how many hours are required for licensing), plus a directory of consultants and associations. We have salon sanitation guidelines that have been ratified by the Nail Manufacturers Council and super user-friendly client handouts (we've written and designed them so you can just copy and use).
The BIG bonus of the annual Big Book is our 32-page statistics section, which includes data on nail technician demographics (where you work, how old you are, how long you've been doing nails, etc.), how much nail technicians earn, where they buy products, how digitally savvy they are, and their favorite sources of education.
Each year's edition is UNIQUE and contains information not found in any other. This year's special section is the NAILS SURVIVAL GUIDE, Conquering 32 Salon Situations. You'll read about how to survivie: your first day at a new salon, a visit from a competitor, a robbery at gunpoint, indecisive clients, an anxious bridal party, and someone stealing your nail art! Filled with practical and often amusing advice, the NAILS Survival Guide is a must-read for veteran or novice nail professiona.
You can buy the Big Book ONLY from NAILS. There is no other source of information as comprehensive as this about the professional nail industry.
