What A “Nail Girl” Wants: By Rise’ Carter

We at NSI often, and I do mean often, sit around a conference table having lengthy discussions about what “nail girls” REALLY need.  What are your major concerns?  We have put together focus groups, talked to different marketing agencies, salon owners, educators, other manufacturers, and trade publication editors, and the list goes on from there.

Here is a list of what I wanted – in no particular order:

Here is a big one for me.  I wanted:
A way to overcome the negative media hype and the bad publicity that the nail industry seems to be under.

    I received your mail by facebook. I’m a nailtech in Belgium for almost 2y now. I want everything to be ecxactly perfect and everyone appreciate it.
