Our standard cover

  • Public and products liability insurance for nail technicians

    No matter where you work, in the course of your day a client could accidentally be injured or you could cause damage to their property. They could simply slip and hurt themselves while visiting you. You might even spill lotion on an expensive rug, causing damage to their home.

    Public and Products Liability Insurance covers claims for personal injury and damage to third party property made by members of the public. It’s designed to pay your legal costs and if you’re found to be at fault, compensation (up to the chosen limit) and the claimants’ legal costs.

Nail Technician Insurance – cover options

Here are some of the cover options available to you:

  • Nail treatments liability cover

    Our treatment liability cover insures you for any illness or injury caused by any of the manicure and pedicure services below, as long as you’re qualified to do them. For nail technicians, the cover will come with these standard treatments:

    • Applying nail extensions and nail coatings, such as varnishes and coatings cured using UV lamp
    • Applying nail art
    • Cutting and shaping nails

    You can add other treatments too. Find out more here or call 0345 878 5606

  • Theft of takings

    Theft of Takings covers cash or cheques stolen from you in transit, from a safe or on you while you’re working at other premises, such as your clients’ homes. Maximum limits apply.

  • Employers' liability

    There are a few exceptions but if you have employees then by law you need to have Employers' Liability Insurance. It covers your legal costs if they suffer illness or injury in the course of their work for you. Click here to read a guide which provides details of who is an employee and which organisations are exempt.

  • Personal accident

    Personal accident cover provides payment if anyone in your business between the ages 16-75 is unable to work because they've been injured in an accident, whether in a business or personal capacity.

    We'll pay a lump sum of £50,000 if there is an accidental death, accidental loss of limbs or sight, or if someone in your business becomes permanently disabled following an accident.

    If someone in your business is unable to work due to a temporary injury, then after 7 days we'll pay their normal net weekly earnings up to £500 for up to 104 weeks.

    You can choose Personal Accident as an add-on once you've completed your quote.
