"The material is clear and easy to understand. Once teachers reinforce the chapter on 'Your Professional Image and Communicating for Success', students will have more confidence in themselves."
"The added information on disinfecting after a pedicure is a big issue and this revision made that clear. This book has exceeded my expectations from previous versions. BRAVO!"
"The chapter on infection control is very effective in rendering the importance of the practice of sanitation in the nail salon. Sanitation is vital in the reducing of the spread of infectious disease. The chapter starts out on a serious note defining state and federal regulation and their governship of the nail industries practice. It gives the student an idea of how important sanitation is to the industry."
"The chapter on Gels is very informative. Gels are still considered a new service in the industry even though they have been around for years. This is the first time I have seen such a detailed chapter on the subject. I also really like the new design, it is very up to date. It is eye-catching and makes the student notice it. I showed it to other colleagues and they all had the same thoughts on it."
