Hey all!
I want to start my journey into becoming a nail technician however I have done so much research on courses and qualifications and cannot seem to find a clear indication on the best qualification / training provider. I am currently living in Dartford (NW Kent/SE London/Essex) - could anyone point me in the right direction?
The qualification needs to be recognised throughout Europe if possible as I am planning to move to Portugal in a few years.
Thank you all in advance!!

Hi Natasha,
No country in Europe requires a qualification to work as a Nail Technician, except Italy where a cosmetology qualification is needed (except Rome, hence why so many foreign NT there).

More of an issue, is for you to obtain the best possible education as a solid foundation for your career and also that the products you train on are available in Portugal. Of course, you can retrain on new products and normally that is a half-day or one-day cross-over class.

My advice would be to choose an international company that has a strong reputation of education in the industry. Why international? Because it is possible that we are heading into a major recession. Some countries and brands will suffer more than others, but an international company will be more likely to survive.

Now we are out of the EU this may not be an automatic right, so wouldn't necessarily work all your plans around it (unless you're a Portuguese national if course), as usual @BobSweden is right with his logical and sensible considerations. There are also some strong UK based companies too though.
