Why is it that most nail technicians and the manufacturers at the shows wear black? I think it’s a dumb color for us considering all of the nail dust we have all over us.
Black is the safe “in” color, but there is a much wider palette to choose from today. I recommend charcoal gray as a better alternative, because the color masks dust while offering a sophisticated color option. It’s also a bit less severe, and is more forgiving against the skin. Black is still a chic option for the nail tech, providing that the fabrication resists dust and particles.
