"I found your class to be extremely informative, especially since I am still a student and do not have a position as of yet. I've clicked through your website as well, and love that you post so many articles on different yet important subjects for seasoned professionals as well as us newbies! Thanks so much for all the information you are willing to share."

"I so enjoyed seeing you at the Nail Tech Networking Event. I took your Waterless Pedicure class last year at the Premiere Birmingham while I was still attending Nail Tech School. When I shared with my instructor that I wanted to do only waterless pedicures I was told I would not have a good business and would be alienating so many potential clients. I graduated December 2010 and got my license and have only done waterless pedicures, I have a good clientele and they love not having to soak in an unsanitary tub.  I want to thank you for everything and for giving me a sanitary and relaxing way to pamper my clients."
