Nail Systems International

NSI Nails are the leading supplier of professional nail and beauty products and are renowned for their training and educational programs.

For more than 50 years, the Slack family, owners of NSI and the NSI parent company AMCO, has been at the forefront of researching, developing and manufacturing innovative products with cutting edge ideas for the professional nail care industry.

Dr. Fred Slack Jr. was working in a dental laboratory in 1957 when he accidentally cut his thumb nail. Using aluminum foil and dental acrylic, he created a platform to fix the nail, and soon patented the first nail form.

The Slack family went on to develop the first non-yellowing, cross-linked formulations used in all traditional acrylic systems today. They continued their tradition as nail industry pioneers by introducing the first fibreglass-reinforced polymers, light-activated liquid and powder acrylic, UV-cured gels, as well as air and heat-activated polish sealants. The company also has the patent on Elation Nail Tips which utilizes Poly Flex TM; a unique material that far exceeds the limits for tip performance. Today, Fred Slack, Director of R&D, and his son Rick Slack, President, lead the company to continually meet the demands for innovative products that are distributed all over the globe.
