Award-winning distribution and training company, Sweet Squared, will take over distribution, support and education for Artistic Nail Design, Footlogix, Belava, Famous Names and Footsie from 5 February 2024.

The acquisition of these hand and footcare brands from Louella Belle will offer greater choice for the professional customer, and the ease of buying from one distributor.
