The nail industry has always provided a popular treatment, with clients returning week after week to maintain their nails. With so much choice now, there is something to suit every client out there, including Acrylic enhancements which this course covers.

Sadly, Acrylic nails/enhancements have developed a “bad name” over the years, as a result of incorrect application and the use of unsuitable products. We still see so many technicians practicing unsafe techniques, using electric drills incorrectly on the natural nail, as well as the product MMA, which is a harmful product that can cause respiratory problems and should never be used on the natural nail or within the nail industry.

The benefits of offering “safe” nail enhancements:

  • Offers a protective coating over nails that are prone to chipping, splitting or breaking
  • Allows the client to grow their own nails under the enhancements
  • If cared for correctly, acrylic enhancements will not chip or break
  • A variety of shapes and lengths can be created to suit the clients desired look
  • Enhancements can correct nail imperfections, crooked nails, hooked nails, ski jump nails etc
  • Elongates the hands for a beautiful look
  • Maintenance only required every 2-3 weeks
  • Completely safe is if applied correctly using specifically designed high quality nail products
