A nail technician is commonly referred to as a manicurist or pedicurist. The job requires manual dexterity so that you can apply polish with a steady hand and grasp and manipulate sharp tools on delicate fingers and toes. You must possess an effective level of customer service so that you can listen to client needs and requests while providing style advice and healthy nail information. You can work directly for a spa or salon or build your own clientele and work independently.
