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 Salon Start-Up Guide, filled with insights on starting your own salon: everything you need to know from how to evaluate and negotiate a lease to which products to buy to which compensation system makes most sense for your employees.
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.
