Gel nails course
Gel nails course: Gels are the latest innovation in the world of professional nail enhancements. Gel is easier to apply than Acrylics, making it the ideal system for beginners. Gel Nails are easy to apply, odour free, hard wearing and beautiful to look at. Whether you're a beginner or an accomplished nail tech, to offer a modern service, you need to learn Gel nails. Gel Nails are in demand from customers who have tried them and loved them.
Gel Nails: what you will learn: The course includes everything you need to learn Gel Nails. After learning the basics about the nail industry, your tools, and products, you will be shown the best techniques to apply and blend tips to extend the length of the nail to the desires of your client.
You'll then learn how to apply the 'bonding', 'building' and 'finishing' layers of Gel to the nail. The Gel is like a thick polish and is applied to the nail with a brush. Application is quick and easy and does not start to set hard until placed in the UV light curing box. After a few minutes in the UV box the Gel hardens to form a shiny, strong and long lasting nail.
Part 1: Foundation
You'll learn about life in a nail salon and you will understand the issues involved with sanitation, salon procedures, nail diseases, different nail systems, tools, chemicals and products.
