NEED HELP! Buying A New Manicure Table
#1
Hello Everyone,
We were given the go ahead to get new manicure tables, YAY!!!
There are so many styles and so many different companies, I don't know where to start. So I decided to start RIGHT HERE and ask the Pros.

My biggest wants are:
#1 Nail Tech Friendly for comfort. I just had carpal tunnel
surgery on both hands and will be returning to work in two
weeks. What is important to help my health in a table?

#2 Durable table top that can withstand acetone and possible
scraping off of any glue, acrylic or polish that gets on the table.

#3 Storage on both sides of the table so I don't need any extra carts hanging around. I really want just one complete station.

#4 Affordable, $200-$400 range. Not really sure what they are willing to spend, $400 is probably pushing it. We need to buy 2 tables.

If you have any info on trusted companies, brand names, websites, tools etc. Any kind of feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I live in Pa, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Kelly*

When I used nail tables, I preferred a glass top for easy cleaning. Also, I placed a half-round bolster and king-size heating pad under my table towel and patient bib to position the client comfortably; the client would sit in swiveling leather office chair so they could be sideways to the table and still lean back with the hand in the ideal position . . . No reaching or pulling for me.

Can you post a pic of what this looks like? I'd love to get my clients to sit straight and stop turning to the side!!!

I don't have tables any more; Lorena Marquez has them now : ) . . . the client did not face me, but his/her hand was positioned perfectly. To work on the other hand, I rotated the client to the other side.
