Kupa has been shaking things up a lot lately. Following its acquisition of Nailebrity and announcing Elaine Watson as the new executive vice president, the Anaheim, CA-based brand wants nail pros to know Kupa is more than just an e-file company.

On Monday, a dozen nail pros attended Watson’s first five-hour Revolution Per Manicure class where techs perfected their skills on executing safe and gentle electric file services on natural nails with confidence. The hands-on and certification course designed for newbies and seasoned techs, showed how to eliminate the need for nipping of the skin with a technique that maintains clients’ nails between services.

Twelve nail professionals attended Elaine Watson’s first Revolutions Per Manicure class in Anaheim, CA.Twelve nail professionals attended Elaine Watson’s first Revolutions Per Manicure class in Anaheim, CA.

Watson’s goal is to translate her two decades of experience in the industry to applicable education that will inspire nail professionals to think outside the box. “There is no right or wrong way of doing things rather a more knowledgeable way to adapt to the needs of this ever evolving industry and its clients,” Watson says.

Upcoming continuing education classes will include two overarching topics: nail systems and electric nail files. Students can learn to master Kupa’s systems like ArtFinity (nail art), DipFinity (dip nails), Divinity (acrylics) and GelFinity (hard gel). Pros can also sign up to learn new techniques to use an e-file for manicures, pedicures and learn in-depth about the brand’s range in bits like carbide and diamond (which Watson predicts will be huge in the seasons to come).
