Course Overview

Known within the industry for being as durable as car paint, gel nails are enduringly popular: when compared to a regular manicure, they last longer, and maintain their lustre for weeks. They’re also odourless, soak off easily, and have the same strength, length, and appearance of false acrylic nails. With all this in mind, knowing how to create the perfect gel finish is an essential skill for any nail tech. Want to learn how? You’re in luck! This specialist diploma is designed to offer everything you’ll need to work as a gel nail specialist, so you’ll be creating beautiful nails before you know it.

Perfect for practising beauticians, as well as those looking to learn a new skill – whether you work freelance, in a salon, spa, or nail bar! It’s also great for anyone wishing to study beauty therapy at a higher level.  You can study this course in your own time, at your own pace, with the support and guidance of beauty professionals. You’ll also enjoy video tutorials that will show you how to complete treatments step-by-step.
