IBX

IBX, a nail treatment system that penetrates and strengthens the natural nail, emerged in the early 2010s. It revolutionized nail care by focusing on repairing and protecting the natural nail structure from within, improving overall nail health.

It’s a curable product that penetrates INTO the nail and THEN cures. This means that after application, the natural nail appears bare but now has hidden reinforcements that repair and prevent damage. You can continue to treat the nail as usual, applying gel, acrylic, or any other products onto a significantly stronger nail.

The Pros: IBX strengthens and repairs natural nails, enhancing their resilience and durability over time. It improves the appearance and condition of the nails, providing a foundation for gel or polish applications while promoting long-term nail health.

The Cons: Multiple treatments may be required to achieve significant improvement in nail strength and condition, but no one ever promised overnight success! Professional application is recommended to ensure proper penetration and effectiveness of the treatment.

Our IBX training is flexible and self-guided, with pre-recorded and live educator-led components.

This Module is suitable for anyone from complete beginners with no experience through to qualified Nail Techs wanting a refresher.

When you enrol, please make sure to choose a ‘Live Lesson’ and a ‘Kit’ option under ‘Add Ons’

During this Module we will cover –

  • What IBX is
  • How it works and why you should use it in salon
  • How to apply it in various situations
  • How to upsell IBX to clients who need it

Your fees include – 

  • 1.5 Hours of Video Content. Pre-recorded Demo videos allow you to see a demonstration from multiple angles, up close, and with the benefit of rewatching.
  • 7-Day Support via our Facebook Group. We have a beautiful, unparalleled community of like-minded folk in there, ready to welcome you.
  • 5-Day Support via Email and Phone
  • Unlimited attempts at your written assessment. Resits are done online.

Live Lessons

Yes, we have In-Person Classes. Yes, we also offer online options!

It’s a common misconception that our online courses are just pre-recorded videos, however they actually include indepth live lessons done via Zoom. We genuinely find that students get better results from online training as they can see closer and across multiple angles, even recording their lessons to rewatch.

All of our courses have the option to include live lessons.

These can be –

  • In Person, one-on-one, hosted by your Mentor at their own salon. View the locations of our Mentors here.
  • Online, one on one, at a time that works for both you and your Mentor.
  • Online, in a group, with one of our Accountability Groups.

Live Lessons are optional if –

  • You have previously completed training in the same subject and are using this course as a refresher.
  • You plan on working towards the Introduction to Nail Technology – once you enrol, you’ll have no additional costs unless you need to resit your exam more than once.
  • You only plan on doing a couple of modules and are happy with an A5 ‘Short Course’ Certificate.

Live Lessons are compulsory if –

When enrolling, you need to choose a Live Lesson option as the choice you make affects the price you pay.

Kits/Product Inclusions

Our courses are brand neutral and we don’t want to force you to pay for products that you don’t want or need. However, we do sell Artistic Nail Design products and kits are available if you choose to add them.

When enrolling, you need to choose a Kit option as the choice you make affects the price you pay.

How does it work?

Within 2 business days of enrolling, you will receive access to the online components of your course, which you can access by logging into this website. You can work through the content at your leisure.

As you work through the pre-recorded content of each Module, you will often see markers that say ‘It’s Time to Book a Lesson’ (which refers to a live session with a Mentor). There will be instructions on how to book. You can see a breakdown of all lessons by downloading a Lesson Guide from our Student Resources page.

Lessons can be booked with complete flexibility around your own needs and availability, matched with the availability of your chosen Mentors. You might choose to attend only mornings, only afternoons, only weekends, or a total mix and match – it’s entirely up to you.

Lessons and exams can be completed online or in-person, at a cost of $49/hour or $349 for an 8-hour day. Occasionally, group lessons will be available, at a cost of $49 for 3-hours.

What if I’m not good enough?

Your live lessons are where, after watching the pre-recorded demonstrations, a Mentor can help you in real-time. There’s a misconception that you need to be good before you join a lesson but this is definitely false! A lesson is where your Mentor guides you through practicing for the first time – you’re not supposed to be a master.

Where are the courses held?

Our online courses are 100% Online including pre-recorded, live and exam components. Complete from your home or salon, no matter where you are. If you choose in-person lessons, these will be in the salon of your chosen Mentor. Mentors and their locations can be seen here.

Will I get a Certificate?

This Module is part of the Foundation Certificate in Nail Technology. A Sticker to add to your Foundation Certificate in Nail Technology certificate is included with this course, available after all criteria are met.

If you would like a certificate additional to the Foundation Certificate in Nail Technology qualification, you can purchase one in the ‘Certificates’ category of our online Shop.

Is there a Payment Plan?

If you’re on a budget, we recommend that you enrol in each Module one at a time. You can pay using a credit card, bank transfer or LayBuy.
