Course Summary

Nail enhancements are an increasingly popular treatment within the professional beauty industry. The last few years have seen the introduction of UV gel systems which can be used to provide natural-looking overlays or enhancements.

UV gel nails are perfect for clients who are looking for a longer-lasting nail treatment than a manicure as they can last for as long as three weeks. Clients will need to return to the salon to have these removed or infilled, guaranteeing you repeat bookings.

The course also covers reception and consultation, contraindications to treatment and aftercare advice. It also includes detailed technique modules which show you how to apply gel nails.

The course is provided with an extensive and informative course manual as well as a full student kit, including all that you would need to perform this treatment.
