Nail salons need specific tools and work spaces so that nail technicians can give manicures and pedicures to customers properly. In a mobile nail salon, the nail technicians and their cosmetic skills go to their customers or move from place to place. A number of tools are needed to properly equip a mobile nail business.


Cars will be needed for nail technicians to go from one place to the next. Calls from customers will come into a specific location or number, and a dispatcher will let the nail technician know where she will be going. At first, the freelance nail technicians who work for the mobile nail salon will have to use their own cars and be reimbursed for mileage or gasoline. As the mobile nail business grows, a fleet of vehicles painted and outfitted with the name of the company can be used to get mobile nail technicians from place to place.

Nail Kits

Nail technicians need certain tools to do people's nails, wherever they set up. These tools include files and clippers of different sizes, and picks to clean nails and cuticles. Kits can also include a wide variety of nail polishes. These nail kits can fit into plastic cases, which can be organised in drawers and trays so that nail technicians can easily find all their equipment no matter where they are. Alcohol should be included to clean and sanitise all equipment.

Chairs and Generator

Easily transportable chairs should also be included in a mobile nail business, so that nail technicians can set up anywhere and comfortably do customer's nails. Foldable chairs should fit easily in the trunks of the technicians' automobiles. Cushions can also be included to make the chairs more comfortable.

Electricity may also be needed, for example when customers need to soak their feet for pedicures or to set up lamps to give nail technicians more light. The mobile nail business should have a few gas-powered generators so that technicians have access to electricity on very remote jobs.
