The very first thing you should do when you go to a Nail Salon is check to make sure the nail tech, who is doing your nails, is licensed. State Inspectors check to see if nail techs are licensed, however, the one thing I have noticed in all the years I have been licensed is that they DO NOT check to see if that person’s personal ID matches the name on the state license. State Licenses do not come with pictures on them, we put those on them ourselves. It is very easy for staff to share licenses.
It is your responsibility to ensure that whoever is doing your nails is licensed. To do so you need to ask to see their State License with a State ID (either license or State issued ID card) and ensure that they match.
