If you’ve already signed up for our FREE TRIAL, and discovered the secret of successful nail technicians, you will have had a chance to see how the e-learning process works. You’ll also know that how we work is completely different from how other nail schools in Southern Africa do, so you’re probably wondering “Where to from here?”
If you have attended a product focused nail course before, but you find that you’re still struggling with a few things, don’t worry! By learning the foundations of what product education is built on, you will understand your products better, and know why things are done a certain way. This allows you to identify problems faster, and tailor your services without making guesses – so you can get the results you want.
It is very important to know that product education is usually developed by product manufacturers who assume that anyone learning how to use their products are already qualified professionals.
Our programme covers what usually comes before what brand education teaches, which is why this content is often only briefly recapped, or left out of most of their courses.
Don’t worry, you haven’t been cheated! Standard nail tech education in most of the first world is strictly regulated – they have a standardized basic curriculum that everyone must learn before they move on to working with products on people. In most cases, a full nail course will take anything from one to three months to complete.
This is why we recommend that you pair our programme with product education if you would like to build a solid foundation for your nail career. It is important for you to understand that your training is actually split into three separate phases, namely:
- Theory – the in-depth content we teach you in modules 1 to 11;
- Practical – what your NailArtiste Instructor will teach you based on modules 6 to 10; and
- Case studies – the time you spend perfecting the skills and techniques your instructor taught you in class.
We know that you are really excited to get started, and may be feeling a little overwhelmed by the various options. Don’t worry – we’ll help you decide what the best course of action you can take to achieve your education goals!
You can choose Individual Modules and work through your course module by module, on a “pay-as-you-go” basis. Buy as many modules as you like at one time, OR work though one, finish it, and then move on to the next one. Online support is available from our amazing TAOND tutors. If you opt for Individual Modules and want to earn your certificate, you will need to buy your exam modules separately and sit for a live exam with a NailArtiste Instructor before your certificates can be issued.
Enroll in one of our mini course bundles. You could start with UV Gel Nail Enhancements, for example, and master your skills before you continue with Acrylic Nail Enhancements. Combine with individual modules to upgrade when you’re ready. Bonus content includes 2 month’s free subscription to Face to Face with Doug Schoon.
Get in touch with a NailArtiste Instructor if you need to improve your product application skills & complete your live exam. Exam fees are included and once you’ve completed everything, you’ll receive your certificate. Online support is also available from our amazing TAOND tutors.

Now remember, you probably won’t need to buy a whole new kit and get everything from scratch – because you should already have most of the products you need. For the items you don’t have, you can always get them from your favourite NailArtiste Affiliated Distributor when you’re ready.
To get your certificate, you will still need to sit for a live exam – a NailArtiste Instructor will be happy to help you with this.
As you can see, you have a number of options available to you that will suit YOUR needs depending on where you are in your career or what your schedule or budget will allow.
Depending on prior experience and skills you already have, you could also become a NailArtiste Instructor and help other nail technicians improve their knowledge and skills. EARN EXTRA MONEY while you do it! Click the button below to find out how.
