VTCT Level 2 Gel Polish Course- Award in LED Gel Polish Techniques

This qualification allows you to provide gel nail treatment professionally and to become a member of a professional body. Gel polish is very popular as the effects last for several weeks and can be stunning. Specialist equipment is required for a gel polish treatment, making it more of a salon, rather than home treatment.

On this gel polish course you will be taught:

  • How to set up a treatment area
  • How to consult with a client
  • Reasons not to treat a client
  • What tools to select and how to use them
  • Gel polish for toes and finger nails
  • Nail and cuticle preparation without soaking
  • How to use a professional brand of gel polish to ensure safety and customer satisfaction
  • Differences between LED and UV Gel polish and lamps
  • Finger nail painting with dark polish, light polish  and in a French polish style

This VTCT (Vocational Training Charitable Trust) qualification is recognised around the world and will allow you to be employed in a clinic, salon or allow you to set up your own business.
