Most stars share their blessings with their fans by treating them to gifts or taking them on relaxing experiences. Both of which are awesome, but temporary, than say, giving them something that can help improve their lives in the long run. Kathryn Bernardo begs to differ with her new way of giving back to her supporters: By hiring them as staff of her newly-opened nail salon, Kathnails by KCMB.

"Kath really wants to make a longer lasting difference in the lives of her fans, and by giving them jobs, she is able to do so," shares Kathnails PR Manager Ogie Rodriguez.
Situated on the fifth floor of SM North EDSA The Block, Kathnails by KCMB has an extensive array of pampering services that you'll surely keep on coming back for. Mommy Min Bernardo and Kath's ate are both very hands on with the business, usually manning it themselves, while the Teen Queen tries to drop by when her busy schedule permits (they're currently hard at work shooting La Luna Sangre).
Besides the wonderful menu of services, what sets Kathnails apart is how Kathryn made it a point to make her fans a big part of this new venture. Besides encouraging her fans to apply to be part of their staff, she shows her appreciation for their talent by playing fan-made videos on loop on the TV screens.
"All qualified and chosen applicants get a free month-long training on basic nail care, eyelash extension, waxing, threading, and massage skills. The Bernardos' old house in Quezon City is our training center," adds Ogie.
Kathnails opened about a month ago, yet you still have to get on a long wait list if you want to have some pamper time there. But don't worry, it's well worth the wait.
