What will I learn?

'Hardcore French' is a full day focussed on perfecting your work with Rock Hard LED Gel. Rock Hard is as strong as Acrylic but involves only the minimal prep of Gel Polish, either replacing or complimenting your Acrylic salon services.

  • Go right back to basics, briefly revisiting natural nail prep, product chemistry and form application.
  • Refine your skills in overlays, extensions and sculptured French.
  • Revisit maintenance, learn to troubleshoot and discover the incredible chemistry that allows Rock Hard Liquid & Powder and Gel products to be used together for the benefit of you and your clients.

Scroll down for more detail.

What are the benefits of Rock Hard LED Gel?

  • Ever experienced a heat spike when you put your hand in an LED Lamp? Rock Hard has little-to-NO Exothermic reaction during the curing process.
  • Rock Hard is a thick-viscosity Gel meaning it is much easier to sculpt with. It's also perfect for beginner gel users as it won't flood as easily.
  • Rock Hard Brush-on Gels are just as strong as the Hard Core potted building gels. For you, this means far more versatile performance!
  • This revolutionary gel system shares exactly the same blend of monomers as the Rock Hard Liquid & Powder system - this means the two products are totally interchangeable on a molecular level. You can backfill a Liquid and Powder set with gel and visa versa!

What should I bring?

First things first - please 'bring' naked nails, as we work on each other during the day. Other than that, pack everything you would use to do a full set of French LED Gel Enhancements. More specifically, we would recommend bringing -

If you run out of anything, plenty of stock will be available to purchase on the day.

Don't worry if you don't use Artistic though - bring your own products with you on the day and we'll share ours too. This class is product specific, but you will still learn a lot if you don't plan on using Artistic.

Do I get a certificate?

You will do, yes! All Certificates are ordered upon completion of the course and your certificate will be sent out to you when it arrives.

What do I get for my money?

Confidence! Plus we know you want the certificate. But in all seriousness, this class is going to take you right back to basics, refine every single step of your Hard Gel application and troubleshoot any issues you've been having, big or small. It's great for people that have finished Beginner Training to refresh their new learning but it's also great for people all the way up to competition level to push themselves further.

This particular class does focus on working with bright white tips and clear beds - it will highlight very quickly if you need to sharpen your smile line work which in turn helps you be a better tech overall. You'll also re-learn how to do those few things that are a bit trickier with Hard Gel - c-curves and things like that. The part we like most about the class though is the brief theory section that teaches you in a really understandable way exactly WHY you need to offer both Hard Gel and Acrylic and who you are going to offer each one.

If you have crazy high standards and want to seriously perfect your work, this is a great class for you.

We also just want to say THANK YOU for choosing Monaco – we know you have made sacrifices to be able to put your money towards this course and we will do our best to make sure you go away inspired, motivated and with many new found skills.

9.30am – Natural Nail Prep and Form Application

Whether you’ve been using Artistic for a while or are brand new to it, covering prep and forms will either iron out bad habits that have crept in, troubleshoot issues that you’re having, or completely change the game for you. Either way you will be better afterwards than you were before.

10.30am – Natural-look Extensions

This is going to be the most common Full Set you provide, so perfecting side walls, lower arches, cuticle blending, structure and c-curves are top priority.

11.40am – French Extensions

Whether for brides, competitions or for clients who prefer a clean, classic look, mastering French Sculpture is extremely important. We will focus on the skills revised above as well as clean lines, arched smiles, and correct ratios.

1pm – Lunch

2pm – Filing

There shouldn’t be much filing to do now that we’ve mastered application, but the method we revise with you will get you perfect nails every time.

3.50pm - Maintenance

We’ll demonstrate Backfills and Rebalances – the service you will provide most often.

4.10pm – Nail Art

Let’s finish the day with easy, super achievable Nail Art that will impress all of your clients while remaining wearable and sophisticated.
