Please note: For course dates as of 1st May, the course outline for this course has been updated as given in the information below. There are no pre-requirements for this course, although we do recommend completion of the Manicure & Pedicure Course alongside this course to extend your knowledge of full natural nail services.

One of our BEST SELLING COURSES! Earn up to £25-£30 an hour providing these lucrative treatments!

Our Gel Polish course will teach you the essential skills that any nail technician should hold in order to provide a gel polish application treatment to their clients. Due to the longevity and high-gloss finish, this treatment is particularly popular all-year round and learning this skill would enhance your services when offering nail treatments from home and/or mobile. 

  • Health, safety & hygiene
  • Consultation techniques
  • Contraindications
  • Preparing the natural nail for gel polish
  • Applying block colour gel polish to fingers & toes
  • Applying nail glitter to create a 'feature' ring finger
  • Applying a rhinestone to embellish gel polish
  • Demonstration of french polish
  • Demonstration of removal procedure
  • Aftercare advice

For training dates as of 1st May 2022, this course has been updated to include application of block colour gel polish on fingers & toes. Please note, the natural nail preparation taught on this course does not form a full manicure or pedicure treatment (or certification for this) and so for best practice and insurance purposes, we would still highly recommend undertaking the Manicure & Pedicure Course before or alongside this course. The course will also cover application of nail glitter to ring finger and how to incorporate a rhinestone to gel polish for embellishment.

This course is structured over one day and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start. You will learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch. As you will give and receive treatments as part of this course, it is important you arrive free from nail polish, gel polish or nail extensions in order to complete this course.

We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes, they are not brand specific.

We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training. We do offer selected starter kits available to purchase through our website & supplied directly from the supplier to you by courier.

Gel polish is an essential skill for any therapist; all of us want attractive hands but we don’t always have the time to maintain them. It is one of the most in-demand nail treatments throughout the country, specifically because of the high-gloss shine finish, zero-drying time along with no edge-wear, chips, scratching or dulling; ideal for those who lead a busy lifestyle. Following the course, you will be able to work from home and mobile as a nail technician offering a gel polish manicure (once you have obtained insurance). This course would complement our Manicure and Pedicure training course, as these treatments are frequently requested together.

Our diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. However, we recommend students consider completing the Manicure & Pedicure training course prior to this course. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments. You must arrive for the course free of nail polish, gel polish and/or nail extensions as an important part of the course is to give and receive treatments upon the natural nails.

All products and tools are provided for the training day at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training day, nor included in the course fee. On the training day, you only need to bring a hand towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided on the day.

We are so proud at The Beauty Academy to work with such a professional, passionate and friendly team of tutors, all of which hold a Level 2 and Level 3 qualification in their specialised sector. Our tutors are also all qualified with either Level 4 PTTLS or equivalent teaching awards in education, with years of experience in beauty-related professional industries. Furthermore, our tutors who are involved in the assessment process all hold an Assessors Award.

We pride ourselves on the welcoming nature of our tutors and their ability to engage, educate and enrich students from all ages and backgrounds. All of our tutors are dedicated to maintaining their knowledge and keeping up to date with the latest treatments and techniques in the ever-changing industry.

When you have successfully completed your training course(s), you will receive a diploma certificate issued by The Beauty Academy and accredited by ABT.

    I loved this course, it was not only a really fun day but also learnt so much. Cuticle removal, the processes and finding out about heated booties, paraffin wax etc was really useful and interesting. A great day and I’ve come away feeling very confident in doing mani and pedi treatments. Highly recommend!

Whatever I needed to know Kerry was ready! Guys honestly, whether you want to do it to start your business or to do your own nails do it! One way you can make money the other you can save…promise you will not regret it!

    This is the second course I have completed at the beauty academy kings cross branch and it was another great one. I had Alexia as my trainer again and she was wonderful again. Very much enjoyed the course. We were given lots of time to practice and I even left with a nice manicure. I particularly found the course helpful to get those little tips and tricks that I wouldn’t necessarily be able to pick up alone. As well as wholesaler recommendations. Because we also practices with a few different brands of gel polish we were able to see which we liked and didn’t. If there’s anything else I want to get into I will certainly be back!!

    I recently did a refresher Mani & Pedi and Gel polish course with Kerri at London Bridge, it was brilliant she was thorough, very encouraging as well as funny, which help us relax and learn and it also made the day go by really quickly. However, mostly importantly for me was that I learnt so much and left feeling confident that I had all the necessary knowledge to start work again and if I need help the team are there to support you. Thank you to Kerri.

Customer Reviews

  • I loved this course, it was not only a really fun day but also learnt so much. Cuticle removal, the processes and finding out about heated booties, paraffin wax etc was really useful and interesting. A great day and I’ve come away feeling very confident in doing mani and pedi treatments. Highly recommend!

    By Amber Matthews
  • Amazing instructor

    Thé course was great but I would definitely down to my instructor! She gave practical information that will really help me in the industry and she was very very encouraging.
    I feel confident to go into the Salon world With thé skills and affirmation I received during this course!

    I attended my course today and came away feeling pleased. I was able to practise the treatment on another student, as well as be a model for her also. Lorraine was very informative, and answered any questions we had within the classroom. She offered great support and guidance throughout. Thank you for a great learning experience.

  • Greatest investment!

    So glad I took this course I see this as a self investment. Kerry at London Bridge really built me up to industry standard, she was so lovely, patient and has made me ever so confident. Whatever I needed to know Kerry was ready! Guys honestly, whether you want to do it to start your business or to do your own nails do it! One way you can make money the other you can save…promise you will not regret it!

    By Sagal Goodsir
  • This is the second course I have completed at the beauty academy kings cross branch and it was another great one. I had Alexia as my trainer again and she was wonderful again. Very much enjoyed the course. We were given lots of time to practice and I even left with a nice manicure. I particularly found the course helpful to get those little tips and tricks that I wouldn’t necessarily be able to pick up alone. As well as wholesaler recommendations. Because we also practices with a few different brands of gel polish we were able to see which we liked and didn’t. If there’s anything else I want to get into I will certainly be back!!

  • Excellent.That was an amazing experience.many thanks

  • Money well spent

    I recently did a refresher Mani & Pedi and Gel polish course with Kerri at London Bridge, it was brilliant she was thorough, very encouraging as well as funny, which help us relax and learn and it also made the day go by really quickly. However, mostly importantly for me was that I learnt so much and left feeling confident that I had all the necessary knowledge to start work again and if I need help the team are there to support you. Thank you to Kerri.

  • Gigi

    I completed a Dry Manicure and Application of Gel Polish Course yesterday and I thought it was absolutely amazing. I have only wonderful things to say about our tutor Gigi, what an encouraging and a confidence boosting lady she was. At the moment there are lots of rules due to COVID however I felt very safe and Gigi was very accommodating. Just need to work out which course to do next and hopefully see Gigi again! Thanks so much, all the communication from start to finish from the Beauty Academy has been first class.

    By Charlene Vuceljic
  • My course took place at the Reading centre and Gigi was so helpful and extremely friendly! She answered every question and made sure nothing was left unanswered. Highly recommend this course! Was fun aswell as increasing knowledge.
