Nail Art

This course will be delivered using a mix of normal nail varnish and gel polish.  In order for you to be able to use gel polish in your nail art you must be qualified in using gel polish on natural nails.

The purpose of a using a gel polish in your nail art instead of a regular varnish is that it is recommended to last up to two weeks without chipping. Gel nail polish isn’t an extension, it is a specially formulated nail varnish that is applied to the natural nail and cured under ultraviolet or LED light. Curing means that a chemical process takes place which occurs when the photo-initiators within the gel varnish itself are exposed to the UV or LED light. It creates heat while the oligomers combine to form long chains during the polymerization process. These bonds of chains make the gel varnish become hard.

Make your nails stand out from the rest, on this informative and fun course you will learn a variety of techniques from dotting, marbling, stripping, water colour marbling, glitter, rhinestones, and fun decorations like stencils and christmas decoratives.
