Gel Polish

Gel Manicures, using UV-cured instead of solvent-based polish, gained popularity in the early 2000s as a more durable alternative to traditional nail polish, offering long-lasting colour and shine. 

The Pros – Gel Manicures are renowned for their durability and ability to resist chipping, making them ideal for clients seeking vibrant and long-lasting nail colours. They cure quickly under UV light, allowing for efficient salon treatments with a wide range of colour choices.

The Cons – Clients occasionally refer to Gel as having ‘ruined’ their nails however if applied professionally, removed properly and maintained in between, the natural nail should be no different after removal than it was before application. 

Sometimes people ask if there is a module that excludes Pedicures because well, feet, but rest assured the Pedicure part of the course is fairly minimal because we are converting skills you have already learned. This means that if you want to specialise in Pedicure services, you still gain all the skill and knowledge to do so, but if this isn’t your jam, it won’t be too torturous. There is one live lesson on toes and if you really have to, you can do this one on yourself. 

Our Manicures and Pedicures 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.

Our Manicures and Pedicures Module covers Traditional Polish, Gel Polish and luxury services, and then shows you how to convert those skills to do Pedicures. 

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

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.
