"this course has given me more confidence in my practice.

This course has been an incredible “experience”. Going back to basics and refresing all the essential parts of creating a nail set has given me more confidence in my practice. The course is very detailed and self explanatory, really user friendly. This course has definitely helped me to have a wider knowledge of legislations, policies and everything needed to set up my own business. And I am ready, thanks to you team!
