Gel Nail Polish Course Overview

Join the Gel Nail revolution and offer your clients this next generation manicure/ pedicure. Gel UV polish is hard wearing and offers your clients chip free nails. Your clients will love the variety of high shine colours and the quick and easy 10 minute removal.

This course is for existing therapists/ nail technicians looking at adding Gel polish on natural nails as a salon treatment.

Gel Nail Polishes have taken the industry by storm and being one of beauty’s recent innovations in nail products, gel nail polish is becoming one of the most popular treatments that clients are demanding.

The purpose of a using a gel polish instead of a regular varnish is that it is recommended to last up to two weeks without chipping. Gel nail polish isn’t an extension, it is a specially formulated nail varnish that is applied to the natural nail and cured under ultraviolet or LED light.

This course will teach you how to create a flawless polish application with gel polishes such as Shellac, giving your clients a perfect polish that lasts up to 14 days. We teach you the generic application of a gel polish and our training is therefore NOT brand specific.
