Info about this School:

  • Our Instructor has over 20 years of nail education experience with preparing student for licensure
  • By mid-2022 almost half of our students came from other schools with failed state exams, scammed by apprenticeship or the school itself went out of business (or were shut down by the state). Nail School is not as profitable as hair (cosmetology) so keeping a nail only school open can be hard when focused on making a profit and earning enough for overhead costs. The profitable federal funds in hair school is not avaialble for nail school.
  • Private one on one classes ensures that training is focused on the student without distractions and goes the student's pace to ensure each attending student has effectively learned safe service skills to pass the state exams. 
  • Students MUST plan their course study to succeed (30 hrs online per month for four months) to ensure that they finish the course in time before a six month course expiration creates a failure. 
  • We 100% believe that students meant to be here will end up here so we will NEVER push any student to attend.

    Please check all other schools to make sure we are the right choice for you. Some other schools may provide longer work hours to build stronger confidence with providing services later. We are the best option for those that are very experienced doing nails. MORE THAN HALF OF OUR STUDENTS DRIVE 1-2 HOURS TO ATTEND!

Advance Skills after our education:
Our course is about understanding safety in services for your client and yourself with basic knowledge of nail service skills in manicure, pedicure and basic acrylics. Advance acrylic, art, gel polish, dip and other nail skills can be mastered over time (after getting licensed) and not taught here. We recommend taking continued education classes all over the United States to improve nail skills after getting licensed. Trade shows like the California NailPro in Aug or Nail Tech of the Smokies in July every year will be an amazing learning experience with competitions. Some other trade shows are the Premier Beauty Classic, Bronner Brothers or Beauty Expo. You can't attend most of those classes without a license (that is how you know it's Pro quality training and not a scam). Don't learn bad habits or training that could get your sued or lose your license!
