Hands are often neglected and yet every day we put them through rigorous challenges and expect them to deliver! A Manicure not only makes nails look tidy and cared for but combined with a hand treatment such as a hand mask and hot wax treatment, hands can look years younger too. A manicure is not just about pretty nail polish, it is SO MUCH MORE!

Hot paraffin wax is also an excellent treatment for anyone suffering from arthritis as the warmth of the wax penetrated deep into the skin layers and through to the bones bringing relief from aching muscles and joints.

This one day intensive course will teach you everything you need to know about manicure techniques such as safe filing, cuticle work, exfoliation, masks, massage, the use of paraffin wax, as well as the application of nail varnish. We look at the benefits of manicures, contra-indications, contra-actions, use of products and tools as well as the basic anatomy of the hands

Upon completion students will be awarded a Manicure Diploma provided they can satisfy the Tutor that they are competent.


Practice is the key to being a confident manicurist – a steady hand does not come naturally to everyone so although you will learn all the necessary techniques you may not be confident right away, so line up lots of friends so you have plenty of nails to paint – practice really does make perfect!
