Acrylic Foundation Course


SKU: Acrylic-foundation-course Category:



The Abby Jay Acrylic Foundation course is a 3 day course, where you will be taught everything you need to know
about Acrylic Nails.

Day 1 (Full Day) 10am-4pm 
We will be going over the basics of the nail, salon safety, some theory work and then an afternoon of practical work. You would then go off for a week to make a start on your portfolio.

Day 2 (Full day) 10.30am-4pm 
This day consists of a theory test in the morning then the rest of the day we go over nail art, glitters, ombré, crystals etc then go off for 2 weeks to complete your portfolio to return on day 3.

Day 3 (Graduation day – half day)

You will be given a half day slot which will either be 9.45 or 12.45.

You will need a model to do a full set of acrylics on that I can grade as well as a completed portfolio to give a final assessment.

Once passed you will receive a fully accredited ABT certificate where you will be able to get insured as a nail tech. (You will receive a 10% discount code to gain insurance with my courses).

Unlike some courses where there are lots of students on one course and can take a long time to pass. The Abby Jay Acrylic Foundation course is designed as an intense fast track course with constant support of myself throughout and after the course to help you get to the standard you are happy with and help guide you to be a successful nail technician. So it is up to you to put as much effort in, in the time given.

Please note you must have removed any nail enhancements to attend this course as you will be practicing on each other. (This is only needed for day 1 & 2).

There is a £100.00 non refundable deposit required to secure your place on the course. Dates for courses are non transferable once you have secured your place.
