1-Day UV Gel Nail Extensions Course ~ £175

UV Gel Nail Extensions (sometimes called hard gel) produce super shiny, flexible strong nails. They are kinder to the nail than acrylics and are safe for pregnant clients and people who hate strong smells or allergy issues.

The extensions will help clients with brittle, chipped nails, nail biters and people who want a glamorous set of nails for a special occasion. Many people have jobs that they have to have short nails, but come their wedding day, they want beautiful long, shiny nails!

This is an excellent treatment for the beauty therapist to offer alongside classic manicure and pedicure and UV Gel Polish. The nails need regular maintenance every 2-3 weeks and this is an opportunity to keep clients coming into the salon or making mobile appointments. It is also a good chance to start retailing aftercare products such as cuticle oil and hand cream as the products used to achieve the nail 

extensions can dry the cuticles and skin.

A UV Gel Nail Extensions treatment can be finished with filing and buffing, conventional nail polish or gel nail polish. Nail art is an exciting option to offer clients too!

This course turns you into a nail tech – market the UV Gel Nail Extensions to existing clients but enter a whole new world with new client groups to appeal to!
