Acrylic Tip Overlay Training Course

Acrylic nail enhancements are big business in the UK and the market is buoyant. The artificial nail industry is constantly improving the systems available to nail technicians by creating products that are natural nail friendly. Today artificial nail products produce comfortable, natural looking nails that are durable and do not split or crack easily.

In this course we will teach you how to apply the Acrylic System (Liquid and Powder) in conjunction with nail tips.

The GTi Tips with Acrylic Overlay course covers how to complete the application and demonstrates the correct removal techniques. The course also covers reception and consultation, contra-indications to treatment and aftercare advice.

The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images and diagrams to give you the best possible learning experience.

The course is fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body, for membership and insurance purposes. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a full-colour certificate for a GTi Award in Tips with Acrylic Overlay.
