Nail tech school student Ben Bowers says he loves it, but is worried about the quality of the equipment he can buy.
“We’ve got a bunch of new techs coming in to make sure they get it right,” he said.
“I don’t think we’ll be able to get them to last as long as we wanted to.”
Mr Bowers and his fellow students were among hundreds of people to be evacuated from the popular city centre nail tech course in Brisbane on Friday afternoon.
Students were being evacuated after a bomb threat was reported in the city centre.
The bomb threat in Brisbane’s CBD is believed to have been made by someone using the name “Bones” with instructions to “take as many nails as you can”.
Mr Bowers said he had been buying nails online for two years and had been using a small drill to build up nails with the same precision he used to build his own nails.
“I don´t want to be a bit of a geek.
I’m not going to be getting the tools I want,” he added.
Nail techs in Brisbane are given a small portable drill and a small box of nail polishes to build their own nail beds.

He said a number of people were coming to Australia and looking to build them in their home countries.
Mr Mather said the safety of people who were using the equipment was important, and would continue to be monitored.
Queensland Police said it was investigating the incident.
