What will you learn?

This course takes you through all the considerations you need to make before starting work in this area, whether working on yourself, friends and family or paying clients.

All the necessary information that you need to be aware of is included, such as health and safety, contraindications, and how to go about consulting with clients, before moving on to learning about the equipment and tools you will need, and how to prepare nails for artwork.

The course quickly gets you working with nails - providing full explanations of the various basic techniques that you will need to understand and master before moving onto advanced nail designs. The basic techniques covered include Nail Painting, Nail Art Techniques, Stamping, Sponging, Dotting, Taping, Floral Nail Art, Foil French Manicure, Gel Marbling, and Acrylic 3D Nail Art.

The Nail Art Business Course provides a staggering 50 nail art designs for you to try out, a full list of which is detailed in the Course Syllabus section of this page. Each of these and the previously mentioned nail art techniques is fully-illustrated with photography and practical explanations. A list of the supplies required is provided at the start of each design, enabling students to be prepared before trying out a new design.

Along with providing information on the tools, techniques, and practical considerations of creating nail art, the course imparts knowledge on how to create a clean, professional finish to your designs. You will also learn how to care for your (or your clients) nails once the work is complete, to ensure longevity.

The second part of this course concentrates on providing you with comprehensive guidance on how to set up as a nail technician, and how to run and grow your own Nail Art Business.

You will learn about the three types of nail art business that you can start: a nail salon or mobile business, a nail art shop or monetised social media channel - discovering what each entails and which would be the best fit for you. The course also explains the materials needed for each, how to get these for the best price, and even offers tips on interior design and outfitting, should you choose to open a salon.

You will find out how to register your business and what the different legal forms of business are, so that you may make an informed decision. The course also includes information on the some of the laws concerning business, highlighting the most important, and where to find more information on these.

The Nail Art Business Diploma Course outlines what services your clients will expect you to offer and provides some ideas on how to create signature designs, to help you stand out from the crowd. In addition to this, the course offers advice on how to build your knowledge and experience of the topics taught in the course, along with how to find more information in other areas, such as health and safety and skincare.

The course supplies information on how to go about setting your pricing in a way that is both profitable and attractive to customers. You will also be guided in how to market your business and, once successful, how to grow and expand your business.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
