I did the Home Learn Airbrush course about a year and a half ago. I did enjoy it. Alternatively you could do a one to one with the likes of Melle Stripp (London), Vanessa Jones (Derbyshire) or Heidi Godden (Thetford) to name but a few.

you could call Anne Swain in Bedfordshire or come up to Leeds and meet with Amanda - she is also a previous Manchester Winner in nail art and has also taken 1st place in Alternative Nail Awards - truly excellent with ALL types of Nail Art. I know Melle does airbrushing and although I have heard of the other two people that Natural Nails has mentioned, I do not know if they have recognised schools issuing proper certificates etc.. Just a thought! ;)

just givin' you the 'skinny' as they say. I'm assuming it's Essential Nails - I love JG to bits - he is a star. I'm sure you will have fun with it and Gina does the airbrushing and she is fab at that - she has also joined the board so you can ask her questions too and I'm sure she'll help you out!!! ;)

Hiya,
I did the Essential Nails home learn Airbrushing course just before Xmas, and passed with 93% distinction. It's a fantastic course which you can do in your own time. Everything is so clearly explained and Gina is an excellent teacher. I also did the Acrylic home learn and would advise both courses without a hesitation.
Thank you soooooo much Gina.

Hi
I completed the Essential Airbrush Course just before Christmas. I also got a "Distinction" (after submitting it a second time, I wasn't happy with a "Credit" :lol: )

I really enjoyed the course and found it really easy to follow. The high standards set by Essential really do test your accuracy and skills, which is great. It has given me the confidence and skill to create some really stunning work on my clients.

I also found the kit to be well worth the money - it contains absolutely everything you need to start providing airbrush services - even a toothbrush for cleaning your client's fingers after airbrushing!!

i have recently bought the airbrush video from home learn to master some inherited equipment. its very good , nothing is left out, it teaches everything from airbrush assembly and maintenance through practice techniques and on to a dozen or so designs that get progressively more complicated. cost me about £30 for just the vid , money well spent.
