Being a nail technician means more than knowing how to apply a manicure or pedicure. Nail technicians provide nail services to clients, but they are also responsible for discussing treatment, such as the application of artificial nails or moisturizer, and for cleaning and disinfecting their tools and workstation following an appointment. You need excellent customer service skills, along with a thorough understanding of nails and of proper hygiene and sanitation for your work area.
