Storage and Mailing Additional Supply Options:

Storage is extremely important if you choose to carry on hand inventory or even just need to store your personal nail strips.  Also you might need mailing options.

Sample Additional Supply Options:

Handing out sets of sample accent nails to allow people to try your amazing strips is important.  You can use many things to put them in and to add to them to make them look nice and special.  Here are a few additional supplies that you might consider.

My current favorite is the Self-adhesive Gift Food Packing Bags Small, they make it look like I am handing out a present.  I also like that they are still small so they are easy to carry around with me.

Gifts, Prizes and Happy Mail Additional Supply Options:

Gifts, prizes and happy mail are something else many ladies do.  You want to buy additional supplies in bulk so that it really does not cost you a lot.  There are groups on Facebook that ladies hunt down bulk deals and pass them on but sometimes you just don’t have the money when they are placing orders and still want to get in on them or you need them sooner than they will arrive.  Here are a few popular items used.

Post cards are a fun and easy way to do happy mail.  You can get them for anything like inspirational, nail tips, thank you, team … anything you want.  They are inexpensive to send and you can get digital files so you can add your logo (if oked by seller) and then print them at home or have them printed elsewhere.

So giving these Soak Off Cap Clips is another fun one.   You can either send someone all 10 or break them up and only send 5, since some women won’t want to use them all at the same time 5 would be perfect.  Cotton balls can be used with these or they also make Nail Wipes Cotton Pad which you put the remover on and place on nail before applying the clip.  You can buy and send some to your customer with the clips.
