Hands-On Learning With Educator Feedback
Educators will be available via online messaging to answer any questions you may have as you complete your coursework.
Some lessons contain practical assignments that must be completed prior to moving on to the next lesson. Assignments can be completed at your own pace.
If you require more time to complete assignments, you can request an extension for up to four weeks.
You will be required to upload images of your completed nail assignments in the Nails Pro Academy portal.
Educators will evaluate your assignments, offer comments, point out mistakes (if any), accept the assignment, or ask you to try again.
Our educators are active professionals in the nail industry. Therefore, we allow three business days for our educators to check assignments and provide feedback for lessons.
Completed student assignments are shared with the class during the course. Students can follow educator comments, suggestions, and revisions on fellow classmates' work. This strategy will help you avoid the same mistakes, and give you an opportunity to improve your own work.
Certificate of Completion
At the end of the course, when all tasks are completed, you will be given access to the test lesson – the final evaluation of the knowledge gained during the course. After the test is passed, you will receive an authentic certificate of course completion.

Commit to the practice
We understand the excitement to move forward to the next lesson but learning is a process that requires time. Make sure you are turning in your best work. We carefully take into consideration the time (on average) it takes a student to complete a course, in addition to the time for a teacher to check assignments. Those factors are included for courses with limited timeframes. The only exception to this is when we offer deep discounts during the holiday season.
Be challenged by our educators
The relationship between student and teacher is important to us. We know that having an assignment declined can be frustrating. However, our educators will critique your work to help you become a better nail technician. They will offer new perspectives on your work and may require you to make adjustments. For experienced nail technicians, educators will help you break out of your comfort zone, change old habits, and expand your skill sets. Most importantly, it is imperative that you never compare yourself to others. Our teaching criteria will differ from student to student depending on their level of expertise.
We look forward to being part of your journey, and are eager to see what you can achieve with your talent and dedication!

Licensure is government regulation. We provide education and skills as well as certificate which is recognised internationally but doesn’t equal license
We can definitely teach you the SKILLS to be a professional nail technician.
We can certainly provide you with a school transcript with listed hours instead of a certification, however... keep in mind that we cannot guarantee that your State Cosmetology Board will accept our school education. Some states do but each state is unique.
It is not enough to study one class. In order to learn manicure and become a professional master, you need to study ALL our courses.
