Hi all

Ive recently registered with this site having been told about it by a rep from NSI.

I qualified in 2005 with VTCT Manicure and Pedicure and VTCT Nail Services (enhancements).  I went to my local college to learn.  I worked mobile until 2 years ago when I stopped ‘doing’ nails (always worked with gel).

Ive now started again and have been doing Gelish manicures and pedicures.  I want to do extensions but I feel I need a course to refresh begin as its so long since I last did any extensions.

What would you suggest is the best type of course to go on and as I live in North Wales, where would be the best place to train without having to travel too far.

Thanks smile

Hiya,

I have just had a peek on the list of trainers here on Nail Angel and there doesn’t seem to be anyoneone in your area.

I would have a search on the internet and see if there are any trraining acadamies in your area, or try ringing a few reputable nail companies and see if there is anyone near to you that is qualified to train you or give you a one to one.

It is a good idea to have a little more training as the industry has moved on a long way in the past couple of years.

Good luck and let us know how you get on

I’m also a little stuck as to which course to take when I return to UK soon (next month) I have been away from nails for 5yrs, I would like to refresh a little perhaps a lot - LOL, The products have all moved on so much. At first I read ‘The workshop course’ & thought should be the one but then I read the conversion course (although not converting for the mo, gonna stick with gel as that’s what I know) & thought that sounded good too. Which course would you take if you were in my position? 
Thanks Dee x

Hi Dee,
If you are familiar with Gels then I would take a conversion course. Will you go with NSI? I haven’t done NSI courses but I do use their Attraction L&P system. I would like to get back into gels but I’m going to wait for a soak off gel system that can be used for enhancements. I’m hoping NSI will bring a system out soon.

Thanks Lorraine,  I think i’ll do that one then. Yes I’d like to do the NSI course, Will check out dates etc.  In the past I’ve spent so much time & money on training, used several different brands but NSI stood out for me, After watching all the video’s on here  - LOL  It’s definately them that I’ll continue with. Luckily for me my clients in the past all requested gel & I liked using it but I think a soak off gel would be good.  I really want to try the Attraction L&P it looks gorgeous & so versatile when doing nail art, etc smile

Hi Dee smile

Here is the web site for training in Northampton www.suncity19.co.uk or Hertfordshire www.pebble-trainingacademy.com
They might be the nearest to you. A workshop will be the best for you as it is like a mini foundation course but in one day.
Hope this helps x
