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

WATCH OUT FOR SCAM LICENSE TRAINING that allow 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.
