This course was amazing, I have been doing my own nails on and off for a while an always wanted to get qualified, with general life an covid it made it harder to find that time, this was great as it's all in your own time, my intention was to space it out an take my time but I got so wrapped up in the course I flew through it as I enjoyed it so much, Sarah was always on hand to answer any questions I had. So friendly from the get go. I can't wait to get stuck in to some more of Sarah's course. She's an amazing nail technician.

I’ve been wanting to do a nail course for such a long time but couldn’t find the one I wanted.Then I saw this one so I signed up,Sarah explained everything clearly and precisely and I could watch and re-watch the videos as many times as I needed.I loved it and as I’ve been doing my own nails for years and getting compliments every time I went out,I thought it was time to get qualified and finally I can now say I’m a fully qualified nail technician.I’ve been floating on air since you said I had passed,thank you so much Sarah.

Loved the course, Sarah has made the videos clear and easy to understand. I could use the handbook and follow along while she was explaining. Its a great course for beginners or someone who is a nail tech and wants a refresher. When i had a question she promptly replied and explained how to correct things adding pictures as well so it was clear.

Brilliant course set out in easy to understand bite size chunks and Sarah is alway on hand if you run in to any issues along the way would highly recommend to anyone starting out or just wanting to up their nail game and broaden their skills set thank you so much for helping me achieve my goal
