Our Founder

Bed of Nails Academy was founded by Candice Idehen. Candice has traveled the world doing nails and touching the hands of some of the worlds most famous people.

In her 11 year career as a Nail Tech and Business owner, she always noticed a disconnect in Nail Education and Business Education. There was a lack of Continuing Education for Nail Techs.

The need for a Nail School that taught Nail Techs how to do nails, but also how to grow their business was needed!

It’s not enough to know how to do banging nails but then not know how to grow and run your business and plan for your future. Or graduate from nail school and not have a place to go to improve your skills and learn new techniques.

This is why Bed of Nails Academy was born. Candice’s love for business, nails as well as helping others forged the love child that is Bed of Nails Academy.

When you continue to invest in yourself you add value to your services and to your clients. Not to mention you build even more confidence in your abilities as a nail technician giving you the confidence to grow!
