receive gel nail training
The proper application of gel nails is complex. Creating nails that last through the wear and tear of daily life requires skill and hands-on experience. Complicating the process, methods and techniques required can vary based on the products and brands you use. Your customer’s experience with a gel nail product depends on what you’re applying and how you’ve applied it. That’s why it’s so critical to have one-on-one training with your product of choice.
Our classes are designed to provide a unique one-on-one learning environment. You’ll get custom instruction from a certified nailbasics® Education Leader who is also a practicing nail technician. Dates and times are set by you with your Education Leader.
- Our education courses are for techs who:
- Are beginners
- Need a refresher
- Want to learn about nailbasics products
- Want to improve their skills as a nail technician
After completing our training you will receive full certification. This will allow you to access the full range of nailbasics products, as well as our other premium brands and tools.

acrylic vs. gel nails – which is better?
Many clients confuse gel nails with acrylic nails, but the two are very distinct. First of all there is no such thing as “powder gel”. It is either gel, kind of like honey, or acrylic, which compromises of two components, liquid and powder. There are hard gels, which cannot be soaked off and soak off gels. Acrylic nails cure through evaporation, while gel nails cure in a lamp that emits UV rays. Acrylic nails have a strong chemical odor, while gel nails are virtually odorless.
