Mining Online Reviews for Ways to Improve

There's more to online reviews than just a star rating.  Studying customer comments can help you determine what you're doing right and, more importantly, what areas you should focus on for improvement.

Faces of Breast Cancer

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we reached out to some courageous nail techs who have braved breast cancer and asked that they share their stories.

Tailoring Your Tools

Customizing your implements for who you are and how you work can improve the quality of your services, your efficiency, and sometimes even your work enjoyment!  We've put together a few tool kits designed to suit nail techs who don't always fit the mold.

Dealing With Difficult Clients

Everyone has that one client who is demanding, rude, disrespectful, or perpetually late.  We'll give you four techniques to soothe the situation rather than seethe on the inside.

Spirited Treatments

Wine, beer, tequila and even bourbon are trending as unique ingredients for premium manicures and pedicures.  The next big thing may be just a splash away.

Something to Talk About: Athlete's Foot

A Day in the Life of a Nail Expert

Healthy Vein Disease

Performing nail services requires you to sit all day, and staying in one position too long is one of the risk factors for developing vein diseases, such as varicose veins.  Age, diet, weight, and other factors also play into the odds.  Learn to identify your risk factors, and identify and treat these unsightly and sometimes painful veins.
