:confused:Please help, Just registered on this site and I need some advice. I have recently qualified in manicure/pedicures and want to expand my knowledge to extentions, due to time/family/work commitments, been thinking about home study, is this a recommended way forward for a novice?? Has anyone else gone this route and succeeded?

hi and welcome,

I would strongly recommend not to take a home course, you will get so much more out of further training with a professional nail company in their training environment and support and backing. I also think that you will get so much more for your money. I trained with Creative Nail Design to grand master status, yes it cost a fair bit but the training was fantastic and normally consist of training near you and at a convienient time for you too. I would not be where I am now if it was not for their fantastic training and backing (alot of hard work, sweat and tears too)!!

Good luck hope this helps xx

you were very lucky to be accepted on to a conversion class from starting a home learning course, the larger distrubter and educators ,ezflow creative will look for more basic knowledge and understanding and work practise.There have been a number of threads on this topic. Where did you do your conversion and who with?

:) Thanks for all the advice guys. I have the offer of a local course to attend thanks to Caroline ( I promise to call you ref date/time/cost etc). I love this site, I'm a complete newbie to this site but it's so good to be able to speak to other techs who are experienced and happy to offer their advice. TCxxx
