Manicure & Gel


Two qualifications in one course! Gel polish application is the winner in our industry for building up regular clients. Manicure is required to learn gel polish application and that is why we combined both courses together.

What to expect

A combined course of both the manicure and gel application course. The course will run approximately 9am – 4pm (I always allow extra time just in case so please take this as a guide) and you will be required to organise one model for the afternoon. We will cover everything required to perform a luxury manicure including exfoliation and massage techniques as well as gel application.
  • All students must be dressed in suitable comfortable clothing
  • All products and equipment is supplied for each course and you will have full access to this all day
  • Long hair should be tied back to avoid getting in the way
  • Minimal jewellery should be worn.
  • Comfort is key for learning so please arrive dressed professional but comfortable
  • Please bring any snacks/lunch with you to avoid running over on lunch breaks. We have a wide variety of hot and cold drinks provided.
