Some nail professionals need to live on a budget. One trick for professional life on a budget that keeps your tools high quality while keeping your budget in check is to spread out purchasing them. One of my professional dreams was to eventually have enough tools to do an entire day of services without needing to stop and clean tools. I was finally able to accomplish this by purchasing one tool at a time over several years. Your budget will determine how often you purchase a tool. It could be one tool a quarter, one tool every six months, etc.
As many of you know, I love reading the blogs by CJ from Centre for Beauty, so when this one came through with the file buy back offer, I wanted to share it with you. Being able to purchase a high quality foot file for only $40 is a great value and could possibly give you the chance to acquire two tools if you had plans of purchasing one soon.
Hope this idea helps those of you working towards the full day of tools dream. It is such a wonderful feeling to scrub all your tools at the end of the day and let them get clean while you clean up the rest of the salon and reset for the next day!
