The husband and wife team that make up the Cuccio brand of high end professional salon products are another example of people who care deeply about others, including our furry animal friends who do not have a voice as to whether or not they want to have products tested on them. Besides working towards their personal mission “to make innovative high quality products with great value so nail technicians are able to make a better living and enjoy their profession,” their products are not tested on animals, and they work diligently to end animal testing.
When a salon uses the Cuccio line of manicure and pedicure products on a client, he or she is sure to notice the quality. And if the client feels pampered and treated like a king or queen, then Cuccio Naturale has done its job!
With color names like “Angel with a Leadfoot,” “Girls Love Ponies,” “I’m Not Really a Waitress,” “Innie Minnie Mighty Bow,” and scores of others, it’s no wonder OPI is one of the most popular nail colors out there! You could (and some have) make a real collection out of some of the fun names and colors!
Like many of the other product brands we carry at J. Scott Salon, OPI is a family owned venture that puts a dedication to excellence, quality, and service. Did you know that OPI has listed the ingredients of their products on the labels since they started in 1981? That was pretty forward thinking then!
Also, like numerous other products we carry, OPI does not test theirs on animals. And, president and CEO George Schaeffer and his family started The Schaeffer Family Foundation, and gives millions of dollars to numerous charities, and especially to those that support children’s education and health-related causes. Good people!
When you think about nail color, does your dentist come to mind? No, we didn’t think so! But, back in 1979, when CND was founded, it was in Dr. Stuart Nordstrom’s dental office where this innovated dentist conceived the idea for a “nail enhancement product.”
It was one of Dr. Nordstrom’s patients who mentioned that the smell of the stuff being used to prepare a temporary cap was similar to that used to sculpt porcelain nails. Voila! A product – SolarNail ™ was born! This was a revolutionary product in the industry, and the first “monomer formulation,” used in increase nail strength.
CND is an innovative company, and draws the customer in. For example, they have a “quiz” that determined that this writer’s nail type is “cursed” (horrors!), but, fortunately, they have a solution. And gratefully, the solution can be found at J. Scott Salon under their talented nail technician’s careful guidance.
