Renowned for cutting-edge nail designs and quality treatments, the team at Shoreditch Nails has launched an opportunity for those seeking to join the nail sector.

The Shoreditch Nails Academy will offer a Guild accredited nail course, offering skills required to work in the salon or at a freelance level. Taught ‘through the lens of the trend-setting senior team at Shoreditch Nails’, the first two part-time courses will run from 5 August and 7 October 2018 over 4 consecutive Sundays for intimate groups of six students.

The qualification will enable students to be insured to provide manicures, pedicures, gel polish application services and minimal nail art.

“The idea for the Shoreditch Nails Academy was born as a solution to one of the biggest challenges we face as a salon – recruiting exceptional nails technicians who meet our high standards of work,” comments Shoreditch Nails founder, Tina Michael.

“We decided to set up an academy to train perfection-seekers like us, some of whom may wish to apply for a role at the salon.”

Included in each course is a bespoke kit worth around £100 with everything students need to start practicing at home including: NCLA 100% vegan and cruelty free nail lacquers, Arganic 100% Organic Argan Oil, Candy Coat tools, Honest skincare and more.

The cost of the course is £750 plus £25 to become a Beauty Guild Member (if required).
