Course Description

The UK's top nail educator Jacqui Jefford is joined by multiple competition winner Kirsty Meakin to guide you as your tutors. Meet them in the UK's top TV studio where the action has been captured using multiple camera angles in close-up, so you don't miss a thing. The step-by-step instruction follows the NVQ curriculum, ensuring that you'll acquire a solid, practical foundation and a worthwhile qualification.

Jacqui will show you the designs slowly, step by step on the Nail Trainer. She'll show you the coolest nail art techniques and discusses some of the common problems you might experience. She'll teach you how to master basic hand painting techniques whilst creating designs; small and large flowers, striping, dotting, animal prints, blends and marbling. Then Kirsty takes these techniques to a higher level, creating one of her masterpieces on a live model, using a mix of the techniques you've just been taught.

Jacqui will then take you through the intricacies of a further eleven designs, demonstrating glitter application techniques, the use of rhinestones, flat stones, stickers, transfers and charms. Once again Jacqui will show you the most effective techniques slowly, step by step, and then Kirsty creates more competition standard designs for you at full speed. Watching such an accomplished artiste at work is a rare privilege.

To complete your foundation course in nail art, we've included a wealth of information on DVD and in the accompanying book on such important subjects as salon skills, health and safety, client consultation, anatomy and physiology, after-care and retailing.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll find yourself with the skills to take your designs to the limits of your imagination! You’ll be having more fun and earning more money from your clients.
