What will you learn?

Caring for nails on a professional basis means learning all about the intricacies of the nail unit, understanding and learning to recognise specific nail conditions, while repairing the daily wear and tear, beautifying the nails to a professional standard.

Duties and the required skill set can be both varied and extensive, 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.
