There's a great article here http://www.salongeek.com/training/27430-answer-most-faq-training-should-i-choose.html which will help you understand the options.

My opinion (for what it's worth) is that nails is a 'hands on' skill which needs teaching in a hands on way. I personally could not have learnt through a dvd - nails is harder then it looks!! Also, if you do the EN course then want to further your training Creative wont accept EN as a valid qualification and you will have to start from scratch. That's an expensive way to learn IMO.

Doing a Foundation Course with a reputable company is the best starting point IMHO.

Hi Michelle and welcome to the site!!
I think this is the article Sodabubble meant http://www.salongeek.com/training/27430-answer-most-faq-training-should-i-choose.html

Also if you do a search here on site about homelearn courses or essential nails you will find that by and large the majority of people recommend a classroom based training course as the best way to learn our trade. Even the geeks who started with Essential Nails, eventually had to do classroom training as well, and it did add to the costs.
There are several companies training in the Edinburgh & Midlothian area and you should check them all out before making up your mind.
Or if you know any Technicians or Therapists attending the Scottish Beauty show at Ingleston in May you could attend with them and check out what is on offer and get a demo!!

Why not contact some of the major companies (EzFlow, CND via Sweet Squared, Young Nails, NSI, etc.) and ask them if they run courses in your part of the world? I believe all the contact details are on the site.......
