Products Used

Our beauty courses offer the opportunity to train in the technical aspects of application of the materials required for your chosen course, without losing valuable practical time trying to sell you products. We show you how to effectively use the product to achieve fantastic results, that will build your client list and your business.

Our certification is not brand specific. In some cases you insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.

Some of the beauty courses have kits available to buy on the day enabling you to continue to build your confidence and skills immediately upon your return home.

Your tutor will advise you if a kit is available for your course, when confirming your booking. Some kits may require payment in advance and other may be available for purchase on the training day.


Why Learn With Us?

Manicure and Pedicure courses are probably the most popular treatments a beautician can offer. Learn the Contra-indications to the manicure treatment; skin and nail disorders. Learn nail shaping, cuticle work, massage procedures and lacquer application.

Learn how to give the perfect French manicure, learn about health, hygiene and safety for the salon environment. Also learn about preparation of the treatment room and equipment and products required.

You have two options, you can either choose this course for complete beginners or if you are already trained and looking for an more advanced course we also have this on offer too. You are able to attend this course and then be eligible for our advanced course afterwards if you wish to attend both.

The course fee includes the Materials/products used on the day so no hidden extra's to pay, you can get advice as to where to buy what you need to use with your clients from the tutor on the day of your training.


Gel/acrylics are NOT part of this course, this is a professional course to learn how to give a manicure. Acrylics can damage the nails and are a passing trend - by learning a traditional manicure you are caring for your clients nails and your clients will return on a regular basis to keep them looking nice. This allows you a regular income rather than learning something that is here today and not required tomorrow.

Relevant anatomy and physiology is given in your manual, your manual is included in the price of the manicure course.

11 CPD course points has been awarded for this course by the beauty guild - please check with who you are registered with for their guidelines on how many points they award for one day courses as they all differ.
