What are gel nails?

Gel nails are fake nails that can be applied to a client’s fingers to closely resemble the natural nail. They are very similar to acrylic nails (liquid & powder); however they tend to be more flexible. Gel nails can be worn, painted and decorated in the same way as acrylic nails. Gel nails are usually applied using a UV light. Generally gel nails will last between 3 – 4 weeks; after this period maintenance and infill procedures will need to be carried out on the client’s extensions to keep them looking natural and well maintained. Our nail technician courses from home will teach you all the techniques you require to be able to carry out these treatments.

The Work of the Nail Technician

The work of a nail technician can be varied and rewarding. Not only will you apply, repair and remove false nails or extensions, but you will also offer basic treatments such as manicures and pedicures as well as ensuring your client’s nails are free from any skin or nail problems before you begin the treatment.

What Could I Do After Taking This Professional Gel Nail Technician Course?

Become a Nail Technician. On successful completion of this home study course you will be able to secure professional indemnity insurance so that you can either practice professionally as a fully qualified mobile nail technician without having to do any further courses, or alternatively you can seek employment in a beauty salon or nail bar.
