What is Remote Mentoring/the Virtual Classroom?

Our Virtual Classroom is a video-based classroom. You tune in with a link we provide using the camera on your phone. We can see what you’re doing. You can what we’re doing. We can see your mistakes and show you in real-time how to fix them.

To get the best out of your experience, I would suggest getting an Octopus Tripod from Trade Me (they’re under $5), attaching your phone to it, and attaching the Octopus to your overhead desk light so that your phone camera is facing down over your workspace. Make sure your phone can be plugged into its charger from your desk and that you have a good wifi signal.

If you live near another student – get together at the same house/salon and stream in together!

It was a big deal for us to start offering online training to beginners because we firmly believe that you can’t learn nails without an educator looking over you to see your mistakes and correct you in real-time. In saying that, we’ve become acutely aware over the last couple of years, how many people are enrolling in really dodgy online training, super quick in-person training OR just going for it with no training, purely because they can not get to training they can afford.

We believe this is the middle ground.
