What Nail Course to choose?
We have different Nail Courses to choose from.

Product can be applied in different ways to the nail.
Overlays: When you apply product on natural nails, without making them longer.
Tip Overlays: When you put Tips on the natural nails to make them longer, and then apply product over it.
Sculpture: When you make the natural nail longer without using a Tip. You “build” it longer with product.

All our Nail Courses include Overlays on natural nails.
All our Nail Courses (Acrylic, Acrylic Dip, Gel, Silk/Fibre) include Tip Overlays.
The Gel Polish Workshop only includes Overlays on natural nails.
Silk and Fibre is a nail wrap that adds strength to the nail.
We have 2 different Gel Courses. Gel excluding Sculpture and Gel including Sculpture.
We have 3 different Acrylic Courses. Acrylic Dip, Acrylic excluding Sculpture and Acrylic including Sculpture.
The difference between the Acrylic Dip Course and Acrylic Dip Workshop is that the Course includes the Dipping Tray.
Below explains the difference between Acrylic and Acrylic Dip.

Acrylic:
This method is done by using an Acrylic Brush, Acrylic Powder, and Monomer.
This is the strongest nail by far, but you need a lot of skill and practice to perfect this method.
If you want to do nails professionally, this is definitively the system you should consider.

Acrylic Dip:
This method is done by using Acrylic Powder, Resin Activator and Glue.
No Acrylic Brush is used, as this is a Dip method. This method is quick and easy to do.
If you want to do your own nails, and those of family and friends, this is the system you should consider.

Our Full Nail Course includes all the nail systems: Acrylic, Acrylic Dip, Gel, Silk and Fibre.
We offer the Full Nail Course with and without Sculpture.

Nail Art Workshop
We offer 2 different Nail Art Workshops.
The Nail Art Workshop for Beginners is done on natural nails.
The Advanced Nail Art Workshop is done using your Gel and Acrylic products.
When you attend the Advanced Art Workshop, you must bring along your Gel and Acrylic products.

Revolution Workshop
This is a fantastic way to expand the Nail Art you offer.
You can also do beautiful French Acrylic nails using Revolution Forms.
You must be Trained in Acrylic before you can attend the Revolution Workshop.

Electric Drill Workshop
Using an Electric Drill really cuts time when it comes to blending, filing and removal of product.
You must be Trained in Gel or Acrylic before you can attend the Electric Drill Workshop.
When you attend the Electric Drill Workshop, you must bring along your Gel and Acrylic products.

Make-Up Training
We offer a Professional Make-Up Course, as well as a Basic Make-Up Workshop.
The Basic Make-Up Workshop is for ladies who want to know how to apply their own Make-Up.

Eyelash Extensions
We offer a Professional Eyelash Workshop that includes Cluster and Individual Lashes.
We also offer a Basic Cluster Lash Workshop.
