NAILS would like to recognize all those that strive to keep salons up to sanitation standards; to the techs that never miss a disinfecting step, the owners that stock shelves with sanitizing sprays and liquids, and to the companies that supply them.

A professional-looking disinfection container can easily show clients that sanitation is a priority at your salon — and you’ll likely be applauded for it.
