When selecting (and often investing in) a nail art course, it’s super important to pick one that is right for you. You need to make sure you’re choosing one that literally feels like it was made for you, with all its goals and styles aligned to your own.
After all, a nail art course is supposed to help you along in your journey, not hinder it. And picking a course that is 100% up your street will do just that.
Here comes the million-dollar question, how do I know if a nail art course is right for me?!
We’ve put together our top points to watch out for when selecting a course, to make things a little easier for you.
Some people learn best by reading, while others learn best by doing. Some educators offer online courses, while others offer in-person classes. Make sure to choose an educator that offers a learning style that is compatible with yours. Find out about the course schedule, making sure the course fits your schedule and lifestyle. P.s. here at The Nail Tech Org, we provide both in-person and online courses.
Reviews and recommendations
Read online reviews and talk to other nail techs in the industry who have taken the same nail art courses. This will give you a good idea of the quality of the instruction and the overall experience. You can often find testimonials on your educator’s page to help you make your decision..
Techniques and topics covered
Not all nail art courses are created equal. Some focus on the basic techniques on how to apply gel, some teach you how to become a nail educator, while others focus on more advanced nail art tutorials, so make sure the course you choose covers the topics that are important to you.
Nail art courses can range in price from a few hundred to several thousand pounds, so factoring in the cost is crucial when making your decision. Some will come complete with course materials, or extra goodie bags, so make sure you ask and find out, as courses without these extras will incur an extra charge.
After you start
Once you have started your course, its important for you to assess your feelings about the atmosphere, vibes and people. Make sure you feel comfortable, confident, valued and seen in your course, before continuing. Assess how your educators handle questions and concerns, and how they teach. If you’re not happy, it’s key to speak up sooner rather than later.
