Hello there & welcome to the board :D

You will find this varies from technician to technician, but my Hand Treatments run-down looks like this:

Polish Only
As it sounds ;) - £5.00

File and Polish
File free edge, gently push back cuticle (with cuticle pusher or orange stick covered in cotton wool), polish - £8.00

Qtica Luxury Manicure (approx 45 mins)
File free edge, apply cuticle treatment, soak nails in Hygienic Elegance and warm water solution, cuticle work (push back and remove excess), "peel" (exfoliation) of hand and forearm, application of intensive moisturiser, heated mitts, massage, polish - £16.00 (or £14 if requested without mitts)

Qtica Smart Spa Manicure (approx 1 hr 15 mins)
File free edge, apply cuticle treatment, soak nails in Qtica Smart Spa peppermint soak and warm water solution, cuticle work (push back and remove excess), exfoliation if hands and forearms using Qtica Smart Spa Mandarin Honey Salt Scrub, application of Qtica Smart Spa White Tea moisture mask, heated mitts, massage using Qtica Smart Spa Citrus Massage Oil, polish - £23.00

*All of the above include a choice of OPI polish, French or American Manicure.

I would definitely add extra for paraffin wax or warm oil treatments though.

You will probably find that your college has a set routine to follow that probably won't include things like a hand and arm exfoliation or application of a mask but you should be given a course book with full step-by-step instructions of the requirements to fulfill a "manicure" to pass the course. Much of this will depend on the syllabus and which products your college use.

How your manicure service plans out ("the steps" as you put it) when you have qualified will greatly depend on which company's system/products you decide to use on your clients. Always a good idea to offer more than one option tho.
