Nail Tech Event of the Smokies

​This is OUR world.......where nail techs are the stars!

With human trafficking so prevalent in our nail industry, plus both Thistle Farms & our show being based in Tennessee, it seemed like a natural fit to endorse them as our charitable cause.


We feel our fundraising & monetary donations will make a more substantial impact in women's lives right here within our community.


You can support Thistle Farms through purchasing wholesale products for your salon 

or by donating money.


Designate Thistle Farms as your charity of choice when you shop online with Amazon & 5% of your purchase will be donated by Amazon back to Thistle Farms.
