Located in Central Virginia. We welcome students looking to get licensed statewide

  • Anyone selling nail services MUST have a posted Nail Technician license to avoid lawsuits & a class 1 misdemeanor 
  • training must be done INSIDE a State Licensed Nail School to earn the hours for a Nail license
  • Schools must have a DPOR Nail School license posted near the entrance to provide any licensed training
  • any school offering a 100% online education will NOT get you licensed training
  • Anyone selling nail training outside a Licensed Nail School (and without a state Instructor license) is ony selling training that allows you to do nails for fun without charging money for the service

GET YOUR LICENSE because as your skills grow you can move on to the next level! Most Techs don't want you to be their competition! Nail Techs with an established client base can make an incredible flexible income that many people don't know about.

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.
