    What are acrylic nails?

    Acrylic overlays are probably the most popular type of artificial nail used within the industry due to their durability. They are often applied as an extension to the client’s natural nails.

    What are gel nails?

    Gel nails are fake nails that can be applied to a client’s fingers to closely resemble the natural nail. They are very similar to acrylic nails however they tend to be more flexible.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

The best boost for anyone

thoroughly enjoyed this course. There was no rush and I could take it at my own time. I am visually impaired and this has boosted my confidence immensely. I had no trouble with any of the modules. Mostly it was my not reading the question properly, so that is why I made the mistake I did. Thank you for the chance to prove myself as a person in my own right. When people know you have a disabilit...

Confidence Booster

I was given Criminology for beginners course as a Christmas present, would never have thought of doing it myself but I have enjoyed it so much. It was so easy to do and very hard to put down. It’s like reading a good book then having a test on it. There is no pressure, no tutor hurrying you up and no time limits on the tests, just how learning should be. The written report I received after the ...

I did the fast track cou...

Excellent course and feedback

I have just completed a Reflexology Diploma Course and also took the exam on completion. The course itself was excellent and in particular I liked the test at the end of each lesson. It refreshes your memory of what you have been studying. The Anatomy and Physiology was the hardest part of the course but with plenty of studying it is achievable. The final exam which you pay for if you want to t...
