University of Nails

Welcome to the University of Nails!

The University of Nails is a user-driven education platform, designed specifically for nail techs, by a working nail tech! I went to college so you don't have to. At the University of Washington, I learned the tools that all businesses use, large and small, around the world. I have added this knowlege to my 20 years of industry experience as a nail technician including salon owner, spa employee, manufacturer educator, and industry advocate to bring you all the info you need to run your business more profitably. 

I understand that, while there is no substitute for an in-person class, not everyone can travel or allot the time to in-person education. The mission of University of Nails is to bring affordable online education to nail professionals around the world, because when we are individually successful, we are ALL successful.

Membership is only $10 per month, and allows unlimited access to all the videos in the ever-expanding library, plus discounts on additional educational opportunities. Also included are templates for a marketing plan and business plan, and consultation with me as you build them so that you can get the most out of YOUR business of nails. Membership may be cancelled at any time.

Won't you consider joining and seeing how great your business doing nails CAN be? I look forward to helping you achieve success, whatever defines that for you.

All my best, 

Michelle Cordes Pugh
