No matter your industry, making the lives of your customers easier and offering consistently stellar service is a great way to find new customers and keep them. There are a variety of small steps spa and salon owners can take to ensure that they’re providing their […]

This Summer’s Hottest Nail Trends

Since it’s July, right smack dab in the middle of summer, it only makes sense to discuss some of the hot nail trends that are making the rounds. One of our favorite sites, Nail Art 101, does a great job of explaining the trends, along with do-it-yourself techniques to help you pull them off. (Of […]

Cosmoprof 2015 Show Specials

Guess where we’re headed this weekend? Vegas, baby. Sadly, there will be little time for any shenanigans because we’re working. The team at Intrinsics will be attending Cosmoprof North America from July 12 to July 15, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, and Cosmoprof always demands that we be at our […]

Believe It Or Not, We’ve Been Around For Over A Century

Really, at Intrinsics we have a history within our history. If you know our story, you know we’ve seen some changes over the years. However, what you may not know is that our history actually dates all the way back to the start of the 20th century. Let’s take a look back through time to […]


2014 ISPA Conference & Expo: An Event to Remember

This year we returned to the International Spa Association (ISPA) Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, NV. Each year our busy show schedule forces us to make tough decisions. We simply can’t hit every show, as much as we’d like to. But after returning to this year’s ISPA event, we have regrets that we didn’t […]

Cosmoprof Recap 2014

When it’s the dead of summer, and you find yourself in Vegas, that can only mean one thing: it’s time for Cosmoprof again. Don’t get too jealous. There’s not enough time for Team Intrinsics to enjoy the spoils of Sin City. There were no slots, prime rib buffets, or shows for Lea Ann, Kristi, and Stacy. They were hard at work meeting with […]

Intrinsics at Premiere Orlando

Another Rousing Success: Premiere Orlando

As you already know, we returned to Premiere Orlando this year, where we held court for two days on the exhibit floor. We (wo)manned booth #2200 with our crack Intrinsics team of Lea Ann, Stacy, Kristi, and Jessica. We always have a good showing, and more importantly, we always learn a lot.

Next Stop: Premiere Orlando

Believe it or not, we’re on the run again here at Intrinsics. And the start of summer means we’ll be back in the Sunshine State, down in Orlando. Are we going to Disney World? Hell no. But we are going to Premiere Orlando, one of our favorite international beauty events.

Larry Gaynor

Intrinsics Partner Spotlight: Larry Gaynor of TNG

Larry Gaynor, the President and CEO of TNG, founded his company all the way back in 1985. Almost 30 years ago, when his company was known simply as Nailco, he felt like he had his hand on the pulse of what manicurists needed, and he started doing what he could to meet those demands.

ISPA Conference & Expo


The word “reveal” carries with it a certain cachet. Whether you’re revealing a new product or a new service, it’s easy to get pumped up when “reveal” is involved. So we’re obviously excited to be featured prominently in ISPA’s April Reveal Box for spa professionals.


IECSC Recap: Always A Big Time In The Big Apple

Before we get too far into April we needed to discuss how much we always enjoy IECSC. And that’s not just because it’s in NYC. The folks in the Big Apple and surrounding areas always come prepared to have fun, as well as spend a ton. These customers come in on a mission, and they […]


Calling All Entries: You Can Create The Next Great Intrinsics Product

At Intrinsics, we love the saying “Innovation breeds success.” We’re also fans of the axiom “The customer is always right.” So in honor of our New Product Contest and these two fundamental truths, we’ve created a fantastic hybrid: “Since our customers are always right, then they can breed successful innovation, too.”


IECSC: On The Road Again

The trade show circuit shows no mercy. What used to be a seasonal experience has become a yearlong affair. And so as March approaches, we’re once again packing our bags, stuffing them full, and waiting to get dinged by the airlines yet again for over-packing.

ISSE: Kilts, Mullets, And Stilts

We know. That’s a serious blog title. But what do kilts, mullets, and stilts have in common? These are all phenomena we encountered when we attended the International Salon and Spa Expo (ISSE) back at the end of January in Long Beach, CA. While we’re not sure what any of these sightings had to do […]

For ISSE, We’re Goin’ Back To Cali

We’ll be there, and we’ve got a new bag of promotional tricks up our sleeves for you […]

Nail Tech’s Choice Makes The Cut For Cosmoprof’s Sample Box

As our readers know, we love Cosmoprof Beauty, and view them as a valuable partner. That’s why we’re stoked to announce that they just showed us some serious love. Really, we just want to scream about it, from on top of a mountain. But really, this blog is our mountaintop, so we’re just going to have […]

Another Cosmoprof Trade Show In The Books

Well, another Cosmoprof Trade Show is behind us. Though it takes a lot of work and prep—and though that first day back at Intrinsics HQ is hell due to mild jet lag and Vegas withdrawal—we’re always saddened when it’s all said and done since we know we’ll have to wait a whole year to do […]

Welcome To A New Intrinsics Era

We all reach a point where we feel like we need a makeover. Companies like us are no different, really. And sure, maybe a makeover carries with it the slight fear of change. But before we go any further, please cast any of your fears completely aside: though at Intrinsics we’ve upgraded our look for […]

Upgrading Our Tiny Little Corner Of The Internet With Website Redesign

If you’ve come this far, you’ve probably already noticed: we’ve totally revamped the small stamp of real estate we own out in here in the webiverse. Aside from launching this brand spanking new blog, our entire Intrinsics website has undergone a massive overhaul. And—if we’re being completely honest—we’re pretty proud of it around here. In […]
