Our ABT Accredited Virtual Academy Dry Manicure & Gel Polish Course will teach you how to safely and successfully carry out dry manicure (basic manicures tailored to gel application) and the application of gel polish. These are such popular treatments, with demand for gel polish now overtaking demand for nail extension treatments as more people learn the benefits of natural nail care. This online course will take you through the process to carry out dry manicure and gel polish treatments, as well as learning the theoretical knowledge and safety procedures involved in practicing these treatments to an industry-standard

Upon enrolment you are provided with comprehensive learning materials and also complete an online webinar lead by our expert tutors. The course is completed entirely online from the convenience of your mobile phone, with no attendance of our training centres required. The tutor led online live training session will take you through the process to perform these hugely popular treatments, as well as learning the theoretical knowledge and safety procedures involved in practising these treatments to an industry-standard. Study from the comfort and convenience of home, with an experienced course tutor on-hand to help. Following the online training session, you complete practice of your skills at home on friends and family (or mannequin training hand as needed during lockdown). From your best of 3 case studies, submit treatment evidence for one treatment for evaluation.  Once case studies are completed, we’ll contact you to arrange your online live practical support & assessment session. Upon successful completion, you’ll achieve your ABT accredited diploma allowing you to gain insurance to work from home or mobile.

To enable you to make the most of this professional course we advise that you purchase an optional starter kit to practice with and then for using on your first few clients.

You book on to your chosen Virtual Academy course. We email you the course manual to begin learning. You complete an online webinar led by our expert beauty tutors. This can be completed on your mobile phone for convenience (also on most tablets and PCs if preferred). You watch the tutor live online but others won’t see you during the training session so you can be anywhere, even in your pyjamas!

We send you a recording of the webinar to use alongside your course notes, to assist you in practising your skills. You practice on friends and family at home (or a training hand or training head as appropriate). You submit your case study by email, for evaluation; once you feel confident you are achieving a professional standard.

A live assessment on-line will check your progress. Once successfully completed, you receive your ABT accredited diploma certificate by email within 2 working days to allow you to begin earning, working from home or mobile.

Gel polish is an essential skill for anyone interested in nail treatments; 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. 

Our ABT Accredited Virtual Academy course will teach you to perform dry manicure and gel polish application treatments with confidence, all from the convenience of your mobile with no requirement to attend the training centre. Flexible, affordable and accredited learning!

This course is 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 recommend (though not essential), that you study Manicure & Pedicure alongside or prior to this course, to help you have a thorough understanding of working with nails. This can be through our Virtual Academy or through our 1 Day course option. 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 are assured of a warm welcome from the tutor of the online webinar training, with the opportunity to ask questions and receive support as you need throughout your learning.

When you have successfully completed your training course(s), you will receive a diploma issued by The Beauty Academy and accredited by ABT recognising your achievement. The diploma is equal to that provided for our face to face training courses. This allows you to gain insurance to begin earning working with paying clients from home or mobile. They are also great to support applications for further training courses or indeed may be considered CPD for existing therapists.

We recommend purchasing student insurance (£20 + insurance tax) while studying and then our professional insurance package before you offer treatments to paying clients. Remember to follow closely what you have learned on your course and to always adhere to best practice. You can find out more and purchase insurance online by visiting the page for Information on Insurance Scheme
