KOKOIST was developed by a professional nail artist herself, Koko Kashiwagi. As the owner of multiple nail salons in Japan and Hawaii, Koko understands from her experience the needs and wants of professional nail technicians. Despite serving many celebrity clients worldwide and making full use of countless new products and technologies to please her customers, the quality of them wasn't enough for Koko. "Why can't I find an exceptional quality gel at a reasonable price," she thought. Trying a number of different nail products that include hard-gel, soft-gel, and acrylic powder that was common at the time, nothing seemed to satisfy her. Exhausted from searching for the ultimate product that didn't exist, the journey began for Koko. The outcome was KOKOIST.

KOKOIST (Koko) now owns a gel production facility dedicated to growing and preserving its high-quality standards day in and day out to provide the best quality nail gel to the nail industry. We continue to strive to evolve and provide peace of mind, excitement, and joy to all who use KOKOIST merchandise. We value the ease of use for nail technicians and long-lasting satisfaction for their customers. Koko's ambition and expertise are thoroughly embodied in her products.

"Our goal is your satisfaction" -Koko Kashiwagi.
