PROTECT YOUR HARD WORK
As independent nail techs and salon owners we all understand and can appreciate how much blood, sweat, and tears goes into starting and running our businesses.
We work days, nights, and weekends to grow our clientele, keep a full book, and stay on the cutting edge with our service offerings.But one thing that a lot of nail techs don't think about is what they can do to protect all this hard work. Something as simple as a cut from a nail file (clean or no), an ingrown toenail, or an accident caused by a flip flop can be the start of the end of your professional career.Being sued can be such a scary thing and even scarier is that the money you may have to pay doesn't stop with your business earnings. Those suited lawyers can come after your personal property too!
Protect yourself and your career with professional liability coverage.
