Cutting down your service times doesn’t mean you have to cut back on the quality of your work. These tips will help you perform your nail prep quickly and effectively.

If you were raised with the notion that it’s rude to talk to someone without looking into their eyes, then this is actually more difficult than you would think. Focusing on the nails with both your eyes and hands through the entire service will improve your salon speed significantly.
You should see a thin layer of tissue lift away from the nail plate when you use a cuticle pusher. If you don’t see tissue coming up, it may be time to evaluate if your pusher is effective. Some inexpensive pushers are very dull and do not help lift the cuticle.
The curette is only an amazing power tool if used properly. You should see the cuticle coming up from the sidewalls and corners of the nail while moving the curette in small circles, which should give you a clean working surface and prevent lifting.
A cuticle remover product can speed up removal time. If you use a cuticle removal product that requires deactivation by water, keep a spray bottle filled with plain water or slightly soapy water at the table to quickly wash the nails without the client getting up.
