What Sells (Besides Polish)

If our admittedly unscientific poll of NAILS Facebook fans tells us anything, it’s that cuticle oil — and CND’s SolarOil in particular — is flying off your retail shelves. Strengtheners and antifungals made a good showing as well. But those are not the only home-care products that have the cash registers ringing. We asked techs to show us their biggest selling retail

What: OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil-to-Go Pens

Sold by: Carrie Gismondi, Bellezza Salon Spa & Boutique, San Diego

"People love the size and the fact that it won't leak, like other oils. Many clients buy them for gifts as the price point is great."

 

What: Toe rings

Sold by: Yanin Moreno, The Gallery Salon, University Park, Fla.

"Having them on the front counter at checkout time has clients asking about them. Who doesn’t like a shiny ring to top off a fun pedicure?"

 

What: Hempz Hand Lotion and Nordic Care Foot Cream

Sold by: Donna Schur, Nails by Donna, Huntsville, Texas

"Those are the only things I sell. I’ve been selling both for more than eight years now."

 

What: Flip Flop Feet Repair

Sold by: Meggan Joy Anderson, Nail’D By Meggan, Burley, Idaho

"Just roll it on those tired, dry, sunburned feet. Mango Coconut is my favorite. I use them with my pedicures and my clients love them and purchase one to take home."

 

What: Crystal Files by Nail Tek

Sold by: Kathie Kirkpatrick, The Vanity Shop, Crockett, Texas

"Other big sellers are Duri’s Rejuvicote, individual shine files, Sticker Files from Nailite, and the Nanovive Lotion and Glycolic System from Entity."

 

What: Cuccio Butters

Sold by: Becky Knauss, The Beauty Lounge, Perrysburg, Ohio

"Clients like that it’s not greasy and it has a 24-hour time release so it stays on. I give the purse-size butters in my clients’ goodie bags at Christmas."

 

What: Nail Tek Hydration Therapy

Sold by: Darlene Donovan, Nail Creations @Bamboo Natural Beauty, Londonderry, N.H.

"I can’t keep it on the shelves!"

 

What: CND Almond Soothing Creme

Sold by: Deb Blatchley, HFN Hands Feet & Nails, Fort Collins, Colo.

"Our clients love the wonderful aroma and rich application. Some clients buy two or three at a time! The only complaint we get is that it doesn’t come in a bigger jar."

 

What: Nail Fitness Natural Rejuvenation & Hardener

Sold by: Shirlee Ann Kerr, Five Doors Down — the Salon, SanDimas, Calif.

"I love this product. I use it as a base for all my manicures and recommend it to all my clients. Those who use it, use it for years."
