Florida nail techs are licensed to care for the nails on hands and feet, and to massage hands. The initial nail specialist registration requires specified course study through state approved schools and submitting proof of satisfactory completion of the courses. There are two courses mandated for nail tech registration. Nail techs who allow this Florida business license to expire often have to complete the bulk of coursework again in order to get it reinstated.
