Quick Dip Nails Training Course

Our Quick Dip Nails Course will teach you the process to create nail extensions and natural nail overlays using the popular Quick Dip method. The Quick Dip nail system provides the benefits of the ever popular acrylic nail system (a strong, durable nail system giving strength to natural nails and as a great way to overlay tips for beautiful nail extensions) but without requiring the more lengthy process of working with a brush to utilise powder and liquid application. Quick Dip nails represents a much quicker nail application allowing you to fit in more clients but also benefit from requiring less products / kit than UV Gel Nail Extensions or gel polish as there is no lamp required, so an ideal treatment for all mobile nail technicians. 

Quick Dip nails are currently one of the most commonly requested nail services and are quickly overtaking gel polish in popularity. This course will take you through the extension procedure including application and blending of false tips, overlaying natural nails for a pink/white French and block colour finish, plus maintenance including aftercare advice.

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. You will practice your treatments using a professional nail trainer (mannequin) hand when applying false tips and overlaying to create an extension. You will also be required to give and receive treatments (natural nail overlay) to allow you the opportunity during the course to acquire and demonstrate your practical skills. Due to this, nail extensions &/or gel polish will need to be removed before attending the training day.

Quick dip is a nail system utilising acrylic based products but with a much quicker application process with no acrylic brush, no beads of acrylic and no powder to liquid ratios to consider. Ideal for any nail technician who wants to offer a versatile, durable nail enhancement system that is quick and simple to apply. Drying is instant so with no lingering odours as when working with acrylic liquid, no UV or LED lamps are required unlike with gel and the system can be used to create strong nail extensions (with false tips) or a natural nail overlay to give strength and colour to clients’ natural nails.  The quick nature of application allows you to fit more nail clients in to your schedule (with treatments typically taking 30-60 minutes) and is ideal for mobile therapists with only a small number of easily transported products needed.

Our one-day diploma course will teach you all you need to know to begin offering this extremely in-demand treatment to your clients. Quick dip nails are fast overtaking gel polish in popularity as a stronger alternative but also popular with Nail Technicians who want to durability of acrylic but with a much easier application process.

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. 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. It is recommended that students consider taking this course following or alongside our Manicure & Pedicure training course to give a good foundation of knowledge in nail basics and also ensure they are fully insurable to work upon natural nails and to provide nail extensions (as some insurers may specify this as with any nail extension/overlay system).

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.
