Introducing Nail Knowledge

After nearly two years in the planning, an idea voiced by Kevin Nicholls from Roo Beauty to Marian Newman has resulted in Nail Knowledge; fact-based online learning with a difference. Nail Knowledge provides the information and understanding essential for the nail professional. It’s presented via three masterclasses; The Nail Unit, Product Chemistry and Health & Safety, each offering five to six separate lessons.

“It’s only taken two years!” enthuses Marian Newman BEM. “This is what I’ve been promising you. I am so proud to show you a taste of the project that myself and Kevin Nicholls have been working on all this time.”

So, ‘what’s the deal with this new online learning?’ is the burning question. Well, the big difference is that it’s presented in a totally unique way. Every individual learns in different ways. Some like reading, some listening, some watching and some ‘experiencing’. Theory is almost always taught using 2D images and diagrams while Nail Knowledge animates all of this teaching. Marian comments, “You can see the nail growing from the nail matrix; you can watch polymerisation happening; see the blood and antibodies rush to fight an allergen!

“Nail Knowledge hits every learning style with beautiful graphics and animations. The written word and the spoken word come together with ‘knowledge points’ in each lesson and ‘knowledge checks’ after each lesson. It culminates in the final exam which, when passed, results in the Nail Knowledge Essential Nail Professional diploma.”
