Professional education…with extra sass.

Who We Are

Nail Tech Reality Check is a collective of independent, unaffiliated educators, each with specific areas of expertise.
No product brands, industry manufacturers, or corporate sponsors own us or our opinions.
Our endorsements are not for sale and never will be.

What We Offer

Are you sick of sales pitches disguised as education?

So are we. Nail Tech Reality Check brings credible, product-neutral education to professional nail technicians and salon owners. Our specialist educators have the benefit of being entirely independent. We’re not employed by or partnered with outside companies, so we don’t have sales quotas and our words aren’t scripted by faceless corporate overlords. We’re free to simply educate.

We provide that education in the form of:

Individual Consulting
Exclusive Live Events
Structured Online Mentorship Programs

Things We Say


Nail Tech Reality Check is now available as a podcast! Like our posts, new episodes are released on the second and fourth Fridays of every month.
