How to Renew an Expired Nail Tech License in Illinois

Nail technicians, in Illinois, are required to have an active license in order to be employed in the state. A nail technician license is valid for two years. If your nail technician license has expired, you can apply to restore the license. The procedure you must follow will depend on the length of time the license has been expired.
