Traveling through five states in five weeks, the founder and namesake of Janay’s Miracle Nails, Inc., made special guest appearances at several salons, presenting a two-hour lecture based on her personal experiences during the early days of the nail industry.

The tour took Janay through New Mexico, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee and Kentucky, and her audiences consisted of salon employees, beauty school owners, instructors and students. They took advantage of the opportunity to ask Janay questions about the salon business, medical concerns, products and techniques.

“Of special interest and concern was the aspect of health safety to the manicurist,” Janay recalled. “This has always been a concern to me. The audiences were grateful and really excited about my product, Le Papillon, which is natural and organic.”

While the purpose of the tour was to educate rather than to sell her products, Janay reported that the question-answer sessions often centered around health. Janay believes her products are the answer to such concerns, and she supports her product claims with a certificate for the salon signed by an OSHA consultant and industrial hygienist.
