What is nail technicians' insurance?

Freelance nail technicians and beauticians can benefit from nail technicians' insurance, which allows them to protect both their livelihood and their reputation. The cover which is often included in nail technician's insurance can protect professionals in the event that a client makes a claim against as a result of injury, damage or loss which is caused.

Potential scenarios could include water burning a customer's feet during a pedicure, nail varnish being accidentally spilt on flooring or clothes, or a client getting a nail infection and then blaming it on unsanitary conditions. It should be noted that nail technicians' insurance is portable, offering you cover wherever you go. This can offer you peace of mind for several work arrangements including working from home, visiting clients in their own home for appointments, or renting a room in an existing salon to work in.

Here at, we have been guiding customers in obtaining the right kind of insurance packages for over 25 years. We offer a range of nail technicians' insurance packages, depending on the level of cover which you require.

Who needs nail technicians' insurance?

While nail technicians' insurance may not be a legal requirement, it can offer considerable peace of mind to professionals. This is because nail technicians' insurance can financially protect nail businesses in the case of a wide range of scenarios. This type of cover can be useful both to mobile beauticians who visit clients in their own home and to nail technicians who are self-employed in a clinic or salon.

Freelancers moving around from homes to salons can work in a number of different environments, some of them unfamiliar. For this reason, there is always the chance of causing damage to property. Then there is the possibility that a client could make a claim for indirect injury. Where ensuing legal cases are concerned, there is the potential that claims could be very high in value. Nail technicians' insurance can provide cover in cases in which compensation claims have been made against nail professionals in relation to a loss, some damage, or an injury.

What does nail technicians' insurance cover?

Nail technicians' insurance can incorporate several different types of cover, depending on how the package is structured. Among the types of cover which nail technicians' insurance can include are:

Public liability insurance, which offers protection in the event that a client becomes injured while receiving a nail treatment from you, either in their own home or at a salon. This type of nail technicians' insurance can also help to pay any compensation due in the case of a legal claim, as well as legal costs associated with the claim.

Van insurance can also be included as an optional extra in nail technicians' insurance packages. This can be a form of insurance which is especially suitable for those mobile nail technicians and beauticians who typically work away from the salon in clients' homes, covering the transportation of their equipment from A to B on a day to day basis.
