Essential Nail Supplies for a Nail Technician

Essential Nail Supplies for a Nail Technician

No nail technician will head to work without a kit. They tend to build up their kit over time, according to their preferences and requirements. Usually, their kit consists of a number of supplies that are essential to perform manicures and pedicures. For most technicians, the tools of the trade are personal.

They’re familiar with their tools and know how to work with them and that has an impact on the quality of their work. Technicians also like to keep their kit stocked with everything that they would need.

At Pedi Source, we’ve seen nail technicians use a number of products to achieve the best pedicure and manicure as possible. Technicians will go through these supplies quickly and need to repurchase often. That’s one of the reasons why most of them are very concerned about the prices of the products they use.

Choose the Right Store

Most product manufacturers and wholesalers are aware of the financial burden of purchasing nail supplies regularly. That’s one of the reasons why they usually sell products at less than market value. You can expect to get great deals at stores like Pedi Source that work exclusively with the manicure and pedicure community. We suggest that you consider the tips listed below to get the best deal and save some money:

·         Make a List – It can be difficult to keep track of your supplies, especially if you’re busy and see a lot of clients. It’s a good idea to have an inventory or a list of your supplies. At the end of the day, you can tally how much you’ve used and how much is left. If you do this, you’ll never run out of products. You won’t be forced to make last minute purchases instead of looking for a good deal.

·         Buy in Bulk – Buying in bulk would actually save you a lot of money. When you buy in bulk, you don’t need to place the order too often. You save money on shipping and handling costs.

·         Be on the Lookout for Sales - If you make a purchase during a sale or promotional offer, you might be able to save even more money. Most wholesalers will occasionally offer discounts on several products. If you’re vigilant, you might be able to buy your nail supplies at 30% to 50% discounted rates.

·         Find a Reliable Seller – You don’t want to purchase duplicate or inferior products. If your clients are harmed by the products you use during the pedicure, your reputation would be compromised. That can ruin your business. You should find a store that sells authentic products and stick to them.

If you follow these points, you’ll have a complete nail supply kit with good quality products without spending too much money on it.

What does a Nail Supply Kit Contain?

New nail technicians often have an incomplete kit. That can compromise the quality of their work and have an impact on their business. You need to have a set of essentials in your kit to provide the best possible service to your clients. These essentials include:

·         Acetones and nail polish removers to remove old nail polish residue.
·         Files and buffers of different grits and sizes to shape and buff the nails.
·         Towels, cottons, and lint-free pads to remove nail treatments
·         Cuticle removers, pushers, and nippers to address excess cuticles.
·         Nail clippers to cut finger and toe nails.
·         Callus removers to soften and eventually remove calluses.
·         Hand and nail sanitizers to keep things hygienic.
·         Base coat and top coat for good nail polish application.
·         Exfoliant to remove dead skin cells from hands and feet.
·         Foot files to address hard skin of the heels.
·         Lotions and essential oils for massages.
·         Cleaning agent for cleaning all surfaces after the job is done.

These are the essentials every nail technician should have in their kit. There are several other products in a professional’s kit, including acrylic enhancements, gel enhancements, and nail art supplies. You can add these to your kit as it grows.
