Vicky, I have no idea if they are any good or not, so hopefully someone who has trained there will come on and give you their opinion

BUT...

I don't think being approved by The Guild or Babtac means anything

Jmho :)

I did some training there, being BABTAC approved mean you will get valid insurance. The courses are excellent, small classes and very thorough. I believe she was recently featured in Scratch mag, she is an excellent trainer...if only I could remember her name......!!!! She also teaches you the method to something and then lets you try out various different products so you can see for yourself and decide which products to use. I hope that makes sense!! I strongly recommend Pinks!!

Sorry, you are right Tonilee, about being able to get insurance :)

I am just sceptical because 'some' short courses are absolutely pants but they are still approved.....

Pinks is FAB!!!
I loved the massage course I went on.
Kirsty (I am sure that was her name) was really friendly and helpful.
Even though i live in kent i would still choose this place over any other.

hi sarahlouise! i have been looking at these courses for a while now , but went with another one in windsor near where i live. ii have to say tho the reviews of where i trained are not good and didnt feel the courses were well priced, very expensive!!!! the site is www.pinkstrainingacadamy.com . the courses look great value for money and the training sounds fab . many other geeks have told me its a good course to do . its quite far from me t ho over 2 hrs away so would prob have to stay over nite . u also go bak 6-8 weeks later for an assesment then u get ur cert , unlike the courses i did where they gave them to everyone willy nilly even if they were crap lol! u can also do nvq or ihbc option with the pinks acadamy , where u make up ur portfolio at home then do tests a while later when ur ready . have a look , it looks quite good. will prob do massage and nails there after xmas!

hi vicky,i got an email back off kirsty from pinks and she advised that i could either go on a two day refreshing course covering things such as tip blending..more detail about pros and cons of all the systems,she said most peeps taking this course would be just starting out but if i want a refresher then its a good one to do!
or a infill course where u bring a mate (who needs infills)then they analysis where your going wrong and why ect.also goes into why nails come off...so i might go for both....xx
