What Qualifications Do I Need to Do Acrylic Nails?

If you are a nail tech or you wish to become one you should master different nail courses. In the last 2-3 years, acrylic nails have been the most loved & asked-for nails at beauty salons. This is because they have an amazing lifespan, they are quite durable, as well as easy to maintain.

Here’s how you can get qualified to do them on other clients:

There are three different nail tech diplomas that you can get. Level 1 is the most basic kind that only covers the basics of manicures.

However, Level 2 & 3 certificates will help you understand how acrylic nails are applied. These classes are usually quite detail-oriented, and they can take up to 4 months to complete.

Some beauty salons & online courses also offer faster teaching-classes for the application of acrylics. In fact, you could gain a VTCT Level 2 diploma in nail technology in one day only! There are no requirements and you do not have to have the Level 1 qualification for this training program. However, a manicure experience would be beneficial and it would help you master the acrylics in no time.

CPBA offers free employment advice and guidance to their nail technician learners. They also offer free  nail courses and work placement
