Nail Prep – Get to know Lotus Tools

Nail prep is perhaps the most important part of any manicure. Without a good base, you won’t be able to achieve the best results.

At Salons Direct we know how important nail prep is to the manicure process, so we created our own brand of implements and prep essentials! Our vison was to create high quality tools without a huge price tag so they are accessible and cost effective for everyone, because we know building your kit is one of the biggest costs associated to being a nail tech. You’ll find nail files and sanding blocks in various levels of grit, and you can also pick up essential tools such as cuticle pushers and nippers made from high quality stainless steel at excellent value. Amy has always been a lover of our Lotus range and we hope you love it too!
