Study paints and polishes and how to keep your nails looking pristine on a manicure course. Manicure courses can be the start of a career in a salon or as a mobile manicurist. Learn how to prepare the nails before a manicure and how to paint different designs. You will also be taught how to give hand massages and to identify different parts of the hand and nail. Some manicure courses also go into detail of how to apply false nails such as acrylics or gels.
