Application of Gel Polish course will teach you the essential skills that any nail technician should hold in order to provide a gel polish application and dry manicure treatment to their clients. Due to the longevity and high-gloss finish, this treatment is particularly popular all-year round and learning this skill would enhance your services when offering nail treatments from home and/or mobile.


Gel polish is an essential skill for any therapist; all of us want attractive hands but we don’t always have the time to maintain them. It is one of the most in-demand nail treatments throughout the country, specifically because of the high-gloss shine finish, zero-drying time along with no edge-wear, chips, scratching or dulling; ideal for those who lead a busy lifestyle. Following the course, you will be able to work from home and mobile as a nail technician offering a gel polish manicure.
