The Art of Gel Polish Trickery (4/10)(from

47 students

The Art of Nails is a series of online courses that take you right from the very basics of Nail Art through to the advanced techniques your idols use. Our Nail Art training is flexible and self-guided, with pre-recorded and optional live educator-led components.

You can watch The Art of Nails workshops in any order but our recommended order makes this #4 of 10.

This isn’t just any old video you can get on YouTube. This module alone is almost 2 hours of tuition covering every tip and trick we’ve learned over 10 years of experience. In an in-person class this would be 1.5-2 days including your practice and we aim to mimic this in depth tuition by giving 7 day support and advice. Pop into our Facebook Group and request help or extra lessons and we’ll add them at no extra cost.

This Module is suitable for complete beginners with no experience. Please note however that this course alone does not constitute a Nail Tech qualification and should be treated as an add on to a course that covered safety, hygiene and gel polish use if you are looking to work in the industry. Our ‘Manicures and Pedicures‘ module is an example of this.

During this Module we will cover –

  • Mixing products to achieve new results
  • Matte finishes
  • Blooming/dispersion designs
  • Marbling
  • Sugaring

Your fees include – 

  • Pre-recorded Demo videos allowing 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

This course does not include – 

  • Live Lessons. We keep the cost of our Nail Art Courses down by not including any Live Lessons. You can choose to add these for $49 Per 3-Hour Group Session Or $80 Per Hour One-On-One
  • A Portfolio Submission requirement.
  • A Practical Exam requirement.
  • A Kit. 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.

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.

What if I’m not good enough?

Complete the detailed pre-recorded content and then choose to add live lessons if you WANT to, for $49 Per 3-Hour Group Session Or $80 Per Hour One-On-One

We require that you complete the online content first as it may answer many of your questions and solve many of the issues you are troubleshooting, leaving you able to make the most of your in-person session by only using it for skills you haven’t yet mastered. Your time with a Mentor is completely customised to suit your needs and have you leaving confident and ready to go!
