This is my first course with Essential Nails. I bought combined with the Spa Manicure and Pedicure which I am working my way through now! Everything right from ordering through to receiving back my assessed work has been outstanding. The support from the ladies is excellent, they are all so knowledgeable and always happy to help. I'm in love with the Gelaze, it is simply gorgeous to apply, a dream to remove and the colour choice is amazing! I am one happy lady and so glad I found Essential Nails! Can't wait to do the Gelaze Nail Art Course! Thanks guys xx
Natalie , Westbury, Wiltshire
I have previously completed two courses with EN (both a long time ago!) and I have been so excited to start two more now. This course arrived Two days ago and I got stuck in straight away. I was so pleased with the contents and the DVD is brilliant and informative, its easy to follow but thorough. I am excited to start my case study and really look forward to putting my new skills to good practice! Thank you EN for producing another fantastic course!
Thrilled with this course
Gillian , Yorkshire
I have just enrolled with Essential Nails for the first time and received my UV Gel Nails course today. It is absolutely brilliant and everything has been so well thought out. It is like having a training academy in my living room and I have watched the training DVD all the way through once. I am really looking forward to rewatching this and practising my nails on The Nail Trainer hand. Very impressede with the hand - what a superb concept. Looking forward to qualifying and will definitely go on to study further courses with Essential Nails.
Yvette , Scotland
loved doing this course and the instructions where clear and simply put.
Jemma , Essex
I did these courses together with the nail art course and I loved them all! I'd been doing nail art as a hobby for quite a while but strangely the nail art course took me the longest to do out of the three but I think that's because I'm a perfectionist! I'm so happy that now I can say I'm qualified, and I passed the gel polish and nail art courses with distinction :-) The only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because I had quite a few mistakes/problems getting my certificates, but EN were very helpful in sorting things out and that's why I'm sticking with them - the customer service is excellent. I've just got the acrylics course now and can't wait to get started on it. Thank you Jemma for leaving a lovely reveiw of our courses. I am glad you enjoyed them and have learnt perfect nail skills with us. My apologies for the errors on your certificates, I hope the replacements were correct. Please do let me know if you need any further help, Jax, Essential Nails
Mandy , Devon
I found Essential Nails online and liked the idea of training at home round the kids. It's been really good so far, should complete my course by the end of the month
Excellent new course
julia quinlan , Suffolk
I have brought 3 other course but never got round to doing them (I did qualify as a full nail tech years ago but am not confident). I love gel polish and when I saw this I thought great I shall do this one and give myself a kick start - well it sure did that. Within the month I had completed it and sent it off. I could not believe it when I got a distinction!!!! I'm now going to do my gel course and can't wait to get that it. Plus I then brought the whole collection of Gelaze gels :-) I really loved the way you had to do a case study - These courses are better than any of the Fast Track courses you'll find on the net where you go and complete it in a few days!!
Sadie , Liverpool

Spa Manicure Pedicure Course
Pearl , Minehead
I love it, wanted to start with the basics and for me the massage is a must in a treatment which I missed everytime I went to manicurist. I like that the book and DVD is detailed with all the essentials you need for the course and love the DVD as everytime I watched it I felt like I am being treated myself :) brilliant idea to learn the practiculars of the job! I had my first practice day with one of my models a couple of days ago, and she loved it, gonna take sister with next time!!! Can't wait to finish and start working as a pro, just can't decide what to do next, gel or acrylic?! :)

Lisa Alsford , Milton Keynes
This is the first nail course I have done - ever. I received the course quickly, the payment options are a brilliant option and the customer service is 2nd to none. The course is presented to a very high standard, the materials are fabulous and the DVDs offer a great way to learn. Being able to pause, rewind and rewatch is very helpful and in just 5 days I have learnt a massive amount. I am feeling confident that I will be able to offer a fantastic additional service to my clients thanks to the comprehensive course structure and contents. Having everything you need in one box is great, all covered by the cost of the course. I will be recommending to anyone who is considering an introduction to nails!
Spa Manicure and Pedicure Course
Natalie Rust , Westbury, Wilts
I must say I'm very impressed with EN Spa manicure and Pedicure course. This is the first course I have taken out with EN and it sure won't be the last. I have just about finished the case studies for the Manicure and have the pedicure ones to start on now! I am very happy about the support I have had so far and everyone is SO friendly! The products are lovely and everyone who has had a manicure/pedicure with me so far has loved the treatment. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is thinking of taking on the course. I don't think I could have found this site at a more perfect time!
Spa Manicure Pedicure Course
Rachel Turner , Nottingham
Have just finished the manicure course. About to send work back to be marked. I have really enjoyed it and so have my models.
Lisa hathaway , Poole, Dorset
I ordered the course from Essential Nails as I am always getting asked, especially in the spring and summer months for Manicures/Pedicures. Its great, the DVD's which you receive with the course are in depth and I always thought that a Manicure and Pedicure was easy, I cannot wait to start to learn the techniques and receive lots of extra new and existing clients this year to expand my Mobile Business as a Nail technician. I have ordered other courses from Essential nails and would highly recommend anyone that are thinking of taking that first step into becoming a Nail technician, its well worth it. Essential nails are very quick in processing and dispatching orders and they are always a phone call away especially if you need help and guidence, not only when you are training on one of their courses but afterwards when you become qualified.
Spa Manicure & Pedicure
Natalie Hutchison , Banham Norfolk
Love this course !. I have just about finished all my models now and they loved it. They have booked appointments at the salon in the next month. So I guess I better get my course work back to you quickly.!!!!!!!!!! The girls at essential nails are amazing with their continued support. If you are thinking of doing this course I would stop thinking and go for it . It is easy to follow and as I said the support at the end of the phone is always there. As with all the courses I have done with essential nails they have been great. And thanks to their help I now have added a very successful nail bar to my salon and have not looked back. Thank you everyone at essential nails.
Spa Manicure & Pedicure course
I just wanted to say a big "THANK YOU" . I absolutely love the mani/pedi course, its wonderful ! Already done my first manicure (on my husband but shhhh!) I really appreciate all your help. Hope to get my assessment folder back to you in January ! Wishing you, and all the girls at Essential a very merry Christmas & a happy new year!
