BEAUTY is one of the UK’s biggest industries; worth billions, employing millions and an increasingly popular career choice. Undeniably one of the sector’s fastest-growing areas is nails.  What you wear on your nails is now as much of a fashion statement as your outfit. Neither is it just the preserve of ladies, as manicured mitts become an increasingly essential part of male grooming. 

Easy to enter and with excellent job potential, the nail industry is a particular favourite with those looking to start afresh or considering a change in vocation. Plus, for those who want to set up their own business or add nail treatments to an existing salon repertoire, it’s one of the safest options as start-up costs are relatively low.

Aside from an interest in nails and beauty and a passion to learn, the only thing needed to launch a fantastic nail career is quality tuition from a respected industry leader. That’s where Nail Systems International (NSI UK) comes in, which is offering 20% off on two of its esteemed foundation nail courses and a selection of its one-day beauty courses when booked before 4 April.

Particularly useful for beginners, the foundation courses are intense 5 day courses which will provide you with the knowledge and skills to perform basic nail enhancement treatments and give you the platform needed to build a successful career as a professional nail technician. No previous experience is necessary and the structure encourages progression, with two days’ training typically followed by two weeks for you to practice and build a portfolio, rounded off with another two days and an exam to be taken whenever you're ready, as long as that's within six months.

NSI courses are a much shorter alternative than going to college and are fully inclusive, offering everything from online support to business advice and The Guild of Beauty accreditation. Students also receive exclusive access to NSI’s Cash & Carry, which offers professional products at trade prices, plus you can attend trade only events and free training days to brush up on your skills. 

As if all that wasn’t enough, NSI USA have been at the forefront of nail industry research and product development for over 50 years and its international educators include award winning nail technician, columnist, competition judge and NSI Ambassador Denise Wright, and multi-award winning Nail Technician Gemma Lambert. You couldn’t start off your new vocation in better hands...
