When i first started out as a nail technician i remember going into my local salon supply shop and thinking 'i need everything!'

 I wanted every file, buffer and block etc lol. Thinking back i wish someone had stopped me in my tracks and given me a bit of advice as i ended up spending far too much money on things that are still sitting (un used i might add) in the bottom drawer of my nail trolley!

I thought i might write this little guide for new nail techs (or aspiring techs) offering the advice that i did not recieve. I dont know how interesting or helpful this may be to you, but i thought i would give it a go, so.here we go!

Listed below are the basics you would need to start building your nail kit

  • A small selection of nail tips. Natural and white are the most commonly asked for.
  • Tip cutters
  • A good quality file (Nsi do afile called endurance that lasts up to 4 times longer, is fully sanatisable and half moon shaped that makes blending around the cuticle easy peasy)
  • A white buffing block
  • A super shine buffer (for finishing)
  • Tip glue/resin/adhesive
  • Your chosen overlay system. If your chose acrylic then you would need your monomer liquid, powders, sable brush, primer (if your system requires it)
  • Cuticle pusher
  • Anti bacterial hand gel
  • Anti bacteriel spray
The list above would enable you to complete a full set of nails.
When you first qualify lots of questions run through your mind,

what system should i use?
what brand is best?

I hope to answer these questions and more in my future guides
