Professional Nail Education

Cultivate a nail business you love without working more, buying extra supplies or keeping clients who suck the life out of you

Hey nailfriend!

I see you making the world a better place 10 fingers + toes at a time.

You make doing nails look easy…

Manicures, pedicures, transforming sad little nubs into gorgeous talons…

All while playing therapist, parent, hype person, even pastor.

In a cloud of glitter + nail dust, you took ownership of your business.

You invest in professional products. You invest in your clients’ home care. You invest in your skills with education.

And you get that owning a business isn’t just about making a profit. It’s about adding beauty into the world. It’s about becoming the best version of you possible.

You’re not just a nail technician. You’re a nail professional.

High five, nailfriend. You’re in the right place.

“If the technique is tricky, Mary finds a way to break it down into something a little easier to achieve. Her classes + demos are fun + inspirational. When she gives feedback, she is always positive, heartfelt + truly wants to assist in others’ improvement + help their business grow!”

Nail Skills Classes

Challenge those talented hands of yours with award winning education by CND. Stay up-to-date on science-based technology that outlasts fads, trends + media-driven scare tactics.

Classes come with fully stocked class kits, certificates + swag. CND classes count for CE credits, but double check with your distributor host for paperwork.

Grow Your Clientele

Client referrals are a solid, tried + true way to grow your business. But does waiting for for them feel like watching grass grow?

Use your website + social media together strategically to fill your books for you with ideal clients. Totally worth losing the nightmare Groupon gossip. (It’s more fun to tell happy stories at happy hour anyway.)

“Mary addressed every issue on which I was having difficulty and I found her to be an inspired educator and public speaker. I admire the technique and mastery of her skill. Mary helped me to find a confidence in Liquid and Powder and I am encouraged to further my Craft! Thank you again!”
