Our Manicure course teaches you to perform classic manicures, French manicures and spa manicures as well as gel polish application. Explore a variety of associated treatments, including exfoliation, paraffin wax and massage techniques for hands and arms. Study current nail art trends and gel enhancements. Classes occasionally feature industry guest speakers and representatives from nail care product lines who help you become more familiar with the esthetics industry. Practice what you learn by performing services – on classmates, models and clients – in the classroom and in the school spa. Public health standards, personal appearance, professionalism, etiquette and communication are integral parts of this course.
