  • Best business practice

This online course will teach you everything that you need to know to become a nail technician.

Skin and nails constantly experience oil and moisture loss. Excessive hand washing or using everyday household cleaning products will affect the skin and nails of your clients, eradicating those natural oils and moisture daily. Daily wear and tear can even lead to split or peeling nails. Even water acts as a chemical but so do all of the nail products that are used and once as a professional nail technician, it is your responsibility to minimise chemical exposure or any potential threats as these can and do cause allergic reactions.

Being a nail technician opens up a whole world of possibilities and a career for a lifetime if you so choose. You may work varied hours while you build up the business, either as a mobile technician, renting a room in an established beauty or hairdressing salon, or for many, the ultimate dream of having an established local business in the form of a nail bar. This is a career that offers much in the way of job satisfaction. It requires knowledge, determination and creativity to be a top technician but as with most things in life, the results that you achieve are as a direct response to the effort that you put into your career.
