How to get a Virginia Nail License

  • take tests inside a state licensed school after finishing a state approved course to ensure ability to take state exams

  • learn and show safe nail service skills from a state licensed instructor inside a state licensed school

  • we can release/prepare students to take the state licensing exams with a secure testing company approved by the state 

  • Virginia does NOT accept a 100% online course for licensing

Fill out my online form.

WATCH OUT FOR SCAM LICENSE TRAINING that allow only you to do your own nails or provide free nail services. ALL100% online nail education will NOT get you licensed. You HAVE to go into a State Licensed school to pass testing and show/learn safe service skill requirements to sit for the licensing exams. A one day class or 100% online course will not get you licensed.  You can not sell any kind of nail services without a nail license obtained by passing state exams to avoid a Class 1 misdemeanor, violation fines and lawsuits.
