About this experience


In this class, we will go over the basics of doing acrylic nails! During this class, we are going to cover the following:

Sanitation: Basic sanitation measures to promote public health and prevent infectious diseases. It is essential to clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of your nail equipment before starting a nail service. 

Bead Ratios: The most critical factor in an acrylic application is the correct liquid to powder ratio. Not having the correct ratio could cause cuticle flooding and lifting. 

Nail Prep: Prepping the nail before any product is applied is vital. Removing dead skin and oils from the nail bed is essential for maximizing the adhesion of any product placed on the nail. 

Nail tip application: Finding the right size nail tip is another critical component in ensuring the nail set's longevity. 

Shaping: How the nails are shaped can make or break a nail set. I will teach you some tips on getting and keeping that perfect shape. 

Acrylic application: Everything you learn in steps 2-5 will make this step much easier to understand. The ratio of your bead, the preparation of your nail, along with the tip application and shaping, will be your guide to properly applying your acrylic to the nail. 

Basic E-File training: Learning to use an E-File will save you a lot of time when doing nails. It helps in the nail prep steps and also for the finish filing for a smooth finish.
