ACRYLIC NAIL EXTENSIONS

1 DAY - £179

2 DAY (+ GEL NAILS) - £310

Sophie offers a one-day course, covering all aspects of acrylic extension nail application. You will apply natural-looking tips onto the natural nail, to create an extension. This is then overlaid for strength with acrylic powder.

This course will give you a solid understanding and qualify you as a nail technician working with the acrylic extension method.​​ The courses I run are designed to develop my student's knowledge and skills in the nail industry. I will motivate and inspire each student and provide all the knowledge and support they require to be a successful nail technician. I only hold small courses of no more than 6 students per training course to ensure you get the full help and support needed.
