The basic training is the only training that will transform you into a professional nail stylist! Have you always dreamed of giving customers the most beautiful nails? Then this is the perfect course for you!

  • The first step you take is to learn all the basics of a proper manicure. How to take good care of your hands? How to recognize the most common nail diseases and - more importantly - how to treat them?
  • The focus of our training lays in learning  you to master the art of the perfect set of gel nails! At ProNails we offer many different types of gels that allow you to handle any type of nail and any wish your customer has. After these sessions you'll be able to execute following looks: Natural gel nails, French Manicure and a Full Colour set.
  • And since not everyone is blessed with perfect long nails, you'll learn how to lengthen nails using tips and forms. You'll be able to transform any nail plate using the right camouflaging technique into a true work of art. Nail biters will never be a challenge for you!
  • We will teach you how to do a fast & efficient refill for all your clients. You know that being great at this is the key to a successful business? This will be the majority of your daily business: bringing gel nails into perfect shape after 3 to 4 weeks.
  • And we don't stop at gel. Being able to offer a semi-permanent gel polish manicure will make your salon stand out. You'll learn to work with Sopolish and the specific removal methods. After this session you will be able to offer a super thin nail treatment that will never damage the natural nail.

If you want to attend the Basic Training you will need to buy the ProNails starter pack, containing all the products you need to get started as a professional nail technician. 

Yes this might seem like a lot, but we promise you: it's also a lot of fun too!
