Beautiful nails are big business today and you can be the part of this growing industry by joining the Cosmetology Manicure Specialist Program at Nuvani Institute. The widespread training module at Nuvani provides students the know-how on using the latest equipment, working with cutting-edge materials and styles, and eventually how to create beautiful and professionally finished nails.

In addition to this, Nuvani Beauty Schools and Salon offers a program for Nail Technicians offering nail technician training to make you eligible for getting a Nail Technician License. Nowadays people are very conscious about their nails and are using a number of new techniques to beautify their nails. This has created an immense demand for nail technicians in the fashion industry.

A licensed nail technician, as the name suggests, is a person who is expert in manicure, pedicure, nail sculpturing and many other ways of taking care of nails. But to get nail technician classes and certification, you must attend a nail technician school. Through a comprehensive nail technician program you will learn the proper steps in giving a manicure and pedicure and how to use nail care equipment like nail file, nail clippers, scrubber, scissors and nail cutter. You will also be instructed on on how to apply nail polish and how to give nails an attractive look by using nail art, tattoos or glitter.


After graduation, students must still take and pass the written and practical exam offered in their state before they can receive a license.
