I've been a nail tech for 18 years now and now an educator whose trialled a range of products over this time so I can best serve my customers and students. I can honestly say that HONA is one of my favourite brands. 9 times out of 10 I'm wearing their PureBuild range on my nails! On top of their fab products, they also go above and beyond for their community and this truly makes them stand out to me as a brand, they host incredible events, have a wonderful community on facebook (for free) so all their customers feel supported and appreciated. HONA is like no other and I am proud to use them in my services, training and on my nails too. #TeamHONA

The nail industry is a truly incredible place to be, and the more we protect it with outstanding education and collaboration within the community, I believe it will continue to be for years to come... in fact - it will only get better! I love that brands like HONA focus so much on providing education, alongside the products and tools that we really need to thrive as nail technicians, so we can carry out safe & long lasting treatments that clients love and also see the value of.
