Gel Polish Application

This continues to be a very popular treatment – either as a stand-alone treatment, to complete a manicure. A special polish is applied to the nail and then ‘cured’ under an LED light. This gives the result of normal looking nail polish but that will not chip, therefore lasting much longer than a normal polish manicure.

This course can be taken without any previous knowledge or experience, however, please be aware that if you are working from home, some local councils require you to have a recognised manicure & pedicure qualification in order to offer gel polish treatments.
