We hear so many nightmares from our Students and Colleagues in the Beauty business about the nail training that students receive. Worst of all they have paid for this, some by borrowing money from their family.
- We hear about girls who have been painting their own nails ‘since I was little’ and now offer training!
- We hear about girls who have learned about acrylic and / or gel nails on Youtube and are now having problems with their job
- ‘My trainer didn’t tell me anything about the anatomy of nails and what I should know before working on customers hands’
- ‘She didn’t tell me anything about what cuticles are and what they do?’
- ‘I spent most of my savings on that course and they didn’t cover anything but polish painting!’
- ‘I took out a loan to pay for my training. Now i’ll have to find some more money because I’m not confident in my nails’
- ‘My trainer only showed me how to put nails on. She didn’t tell me what to do to correct them if they went wrong.’
- ‘My tutor didn’t tell me what to expect when working in the industry’
- ‘My course didn’t cover maintenance and re-balancing – I need to know this for my job’
- ‘I kept asking questions but never got a proper answer – i don’t think she knew what to say….what a waste of money’
- ‘Just when I thought I was nearly there, they asked me for more money for ‘top-up training’ before I could receive my certificate.’
- ‘I finished my training, I have my certificate but I don’t feel like i’m good enough to be charging for my nails.’
- ‘Why don’t my nails look like the ones that were advertised on their training brochure’
If ANY of the above ring a bell, then you have a problem. The Nail Business is one where just being pretty good isn’t enough. You have to be The Best to do well. You are performing nails on the hands of a paying client who will be looking at them all day for the next 2-3 weeks. Are you confident you have the skills and knowledge you need?
We cannot shout this loudly enough:
YOU CANNOT LEARN NAILS ON THE INTERNET!!
Being a Professional Nail Tech is a practical skilled career and can only be learned by actually doing them with the guidance of your tutor by your side. You cannot learn the craft in an afternoon or via an online course. To be fully covered by your insurance, you MUST have formal training, provided by an establishment which holds the relevant Accreditation qualifications from the industries governing bodies. If you learned how to do nails on somebodies Youtube channel, YOU ARE NOT INSURED! How will she do your practical assessments? It is essential that you pass these – it confirms that you are qualified and skilled to work on your clients hands. To be insured as a Professional Nail Technician, you must have a Certificate of Qualification provided by an Accredited Training Provider.
Ask yourself this, ‘would I be happy to pay good money to have my nails done by someone who’d learnt on the internet?’
If an unhappy client makes a claim on you for what can be a few thousand pounds, how will you deal with this?

When choosing your Nail Trainer, please consider your options wisely and take into account all of the above. Choosing the right trainer will save you money in the long term. It will pay for itself in the first year, if not sooner! Choosing the wrong trainer may see you abandon your love of nails and fail in your first year because you don’t have the confidence and skills. Unfortunately, the hard truth is that if your clients feel the same, they won’t come back!
