Nail techs nowadays are quite lucky since they get to choose between several different nail course options! There are in-salon educations 1:1, as well as some online & in-school programs that you can go for. Usually, here’s how much they are!
Most beauty schools or educators will offer you several different course options.
There are different educations for acrylics, dip nails, gels, as well as nail services (manicures, pedicures).
It is important to outline that you can’t learn about acrylics or other more complicated manicures and treatments (such as fiberglass & silk nails) until you’ve mastered the basics like gel polishes. The step-by-step approach is the most important, so make sure you do your research before committing to one practice in particular.
