Manicures are an essential skill for any therapist; all of us want attractive hands but don’t always have the time to maintain them. French Manicure, in particular, is a popular manicure treatment all-year round, especially for brides and those who do not want colour on their nails, being timelessly stylish but understated. Similarly, pedicures are a great way to provide basic foot care for those on their feet all day, focusing on the skin condition and nail care. Both treatments are relaxing for clients and offer a basic but essential service that are fundamental for all nail technicians working from home or mobile.
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 this Quick Start Diploma Package, you will have significantly developed your skills to work from home and/or mobile as a Nail Technician. This exciting package represents an excellent and most affordable way to acquire skills within natural nail service treatments.
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.
You will give and receive treatments as part of this course and so must remove any nail extensions, polish and/or gel polish from finger and toe nails before attending the training days. No models are required. All products and tools are provided for the training days at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training days, nor included in the course fee.
On the training days, you only need to bring a hand and bath towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided.
