If you don't already hold a Beauty Therapy or Nail Tech qualification, you'll need to enrol in The Theory of Nails before you can receive a certificate for this course. You're welcome to complete both courses simultaneously or in either order; but the certificate comes after!

Everyone focuses so much on application, because that's the part you SEE - but prep, form and tip application as well as filing are the fundamentals of good, strong nail services. Let's get them right first.

During this class we will cover -

  • Natural nail preparation for all services
  • How to apply and blend a tip ready for extensions
  • How to apply a form to perfection
  • How to file a nail extension to achieve strength and beauty with minimal strain on your joints and muscles

Your fees cover all products used in class as well as access to our Student Facebook Group. There are no extra fees.

You will be working on each other during this class so please come with naked nails.

Will I be qualified as a Nail Tech when I finish this course?

This course needs to be paired with The Theory of Nails and either Mastering Acrylic Application or Mastering Hard Gel Application to earn a qualification unless you are already qualified and just choosing to upskill.

Providing the prerequisites have been met, you will receive a certificate on the day. This course is a compulsory prerequisite to Mastering Hard Gel Application and a great tool for revision at any other point in your career.
