The Nail Trainer
The Nail Trainer® is a life-like hand on a flexible arm and has jointed fingers, flesh like finger tips and replaceable exercise nails. It is widely used in training classes and schools around the world and is included in our Diploma Nail Courses as the primary model to practice on.
Unlike live models, it's enjoyable to work on, is always available, never complains, and you'll never hurt it during a training session.
You simply attach the Nail Trainer® to a table and practice creating nails again and again, until they are perfect. There's no better way to learn new skills and improve your technique and speed than practising on the Nail Trainer®.
Here is what one happy customer has to say about Nail Trainer® "The best piece of training equipment I have ever purchased, I have been doing nails for 6 years and still test out new ideas on my Nail Trainer®.
Thanks to the unique security of using bubble tag technology, the authentication certificate on your Nail Trainer® has a three dimensional ‘bubble code’ giving a digital imprint to each Nail Trainer® that cannot be copied. With this technology you can be assured that you have bought a genuine Nail Trainer® practice hand. Full instructions are included with the Nail Trainer® on how to check and validate your product.
Pack contains: Nail Trainer® hand & desk clamp, 5 complete sets of practice nails (25), progress cards and an online demonstration video. .

The only issue I have is that the nails constantly pop out when filing and as anyone learning acrylic knows - there is lots of filing. Handy if you don't have people to practice on constantly, but needs improvement especially for the price.. Thank you for purchasing a Nail Trainr practice hand, It is the perfect model for perfecting nail tech skills from prepping natural nails pre nail extensions , through to finishing wiith polish. I am sorry that you have had issues with nails popping out of the fingers, there are three positions for nails, when you attach them to the finger ends, you ned to click them three times to give the best fit. here is a link to the user manual with full instructions on how to get the best use of your nail trainer https://www.essentialnails.com/email/nailtrainer/nt_manual_full.pdf If you are still having issues with your nail trainer, please call our support team on 01440 820999 and we will be happy to resolve the issue for you.
This is a must have item for practicing nails. It can be positioned easily on to a table or desk using the clamp provided, and I love how flexible the fingers are. it is easy to get the replacement nails they can be bought separately from Essential Nails. I realise now after completing my Gel and Acrylic courses how this become so handy for trying out new designs and to gain experience without relying on friends and family to be the guinea pigs. This is something you will continue to use well after you have qualified. Worth every penny.
Couldn't be without!

"We have used the nail trainer in our lessons for a numbers of years now, and we now don't know how we managed without it! As a tutor it allows all of my students the opportunity to be working practically at home and at college, at their convenience. It is defiantly the next best thing to a real life client. The nail trainers have even been highlighted as good practice by our external verifier - Sarah Frettingham, Tutor. New College Nottingham. UK"

Nail trainer is a fab item for an inexperienced nail tech! I bought just after completing an acrylic nail course, it's allowing me to practice without begging anyone to model for me! As everyone has been pointing out it never complains!!

this has been and invaluable tool for me. I do have models to practise on but sometimes I just want to be on my own when practising. Also I can't take my models nails off and have a real good look at them like I can the nail trainer - an amazing tool which is recognised world-wide.
best friend ever never cried or moaned if i hurt her lol
I used the Nail Trainer the whole time I was training and I can honestly say it is supurb, much better to work with than the real thing!!
My nail trainer is the best piece of equipment i have purchased in a while.
