Always one step ahead of industry educational needs, Essential Nails has extended its correspondence - style education by launching a new set of Home Study diplomas to add to its catalogue. The first of this new wave of courses to be available is the w Home Study Nail Art Diploma. Using a tried and tested formula based on the innovative Nail Trainer simulated hand with realistic jointed fingers, fleshy A fingertips and a variety of different shaped detachable nails, the course provides absolutely everything needed to repeat the steps outlined and presented on its DVD lesson and in the handbook - it's a winning formula.
As ever the benefits to Home Study are that it's available to anyoneand everyone and it allows learning at your own pace, in your owntime frame, repeating each step as many times as you like until you feel confident that you're achieving the correct standard as set out in the programme. This style of learning enables the studentto get repeated and reliable practice whenever they can for as long as they want. It's the perfect solution for students to try out techniques before performing them on real people.
The programme set up is a simple format of 'Watch. Learn. Repeat after me'. It's hosted by the well-known nail artist, Jacqui Jefford and rising nail star, Kirsty Meakin, who brings fun and her own individual flairto the project, making it both pleasurable and informative.
This new Nail Art Home Study Diploma has been developed with absolute beginners in mind. It is designed to stimulate, motivate and offer success in the basic stages of this exciting nail medium. It includes many design ideas that are simple and easy to follow, along with a kit that is just bursting at the seams with products including polishes, paints, rhinestones, glitters, foils, striping tape and all the tools needed for application. Once you've achieved the standard outlined by the course, you will receive a Diploma in Nail Art, and as the courses core structure mirrors the NVQ Level 2 Nail Art, it's easy to move onto achieving a government accredited nail art certificate if desired.
This course gives a good idea as to what can be achieved and is very inspirational and insightful for the budding nail artist. The only limit is the student's imagination. I see it as an excellent reference guide to some tried and tested classic designs, using simple and clean lines, which are usually the most stunning and effective of all in my experience.
Even the most complicated nail art designs are built up of layers and layers of effects and designs, which Kirsty manages to outline in her own section of the training programme. She carefully outlines techniques in the DVD that she uses to create her award-winning designs, combining simple details and layering effects to demonstrate how easily she brings together effective and stunning designs.
Essential Nails has over a decade's experience in nails and beauty education and it sports an excellent assembly of educators and support staff who are on hand to aid students in achieving results and success. After all, the company's success is dependent on the studen's success - so the support team is focused on encouraging the student to do well.
This is one of seven Home Study Nail industry diplomas on offer. So once the student has been bitten by the learning bug, the courses get less expensive (as the student has already invested in the Nail Trainer hand). Other courses cover gel, acrylic L&P sculptures as well as tip & overlay enhancements, airbrushing, fibreglass and maintenance.
