What are the benefits of completing The Theory of Nails online?

First, it's not an E-Book, it's a video and text-based E-Course. That means you can still read and enjoy it on your phone, tablet or computer but that we can also include videos, interactive quizzes and multimedia lessons along the way.

Second, every time we come up with new content to add to the workbook, you will get that update too. Your Online Workbook will never outdate or go stale - as technology changes, so will the information you have access to.
