Where it all started

The "Celina Rydén Certified Nail Artist" program is a course that I started back in 2018 in my studio in Stockholm, Sweden, It was an instant hit and I could almost not believe the progress the students made in just five days (neither could they).

As I have a background in nail competing and competition training, this is something that I have incorporated into my "daily" nail work. It is this level of finish and detailing my clients have, when leave after having their nails done by me.

I have been teaching nails since 2013, but it has always been one- or two-day classes. Myself and my students have always felt like we were only scratching the surface and it would be a dream coming true if we could have at least five days to really dig into the details. So, the idea of a longer program started to take shape in my mind.

My vision was a program to guide and coach nail techs to take their craft to the next level, almost up to competition level. To go way deeper than before and to be super picky about the details.

Upon giving my first class, I noticed the most breathtaking progress of my students’ work after just a day or two. And after five days they had completely changed their way of thinking and how to create nails. Don't believe me? Below are actual pictures of my students’ progress and these are after only one or two days of training.

We will cover:

  • Prep - How to prevent lifting, creating the perfect conditions to achieve the perfect nail.
  • Extensions using forms - Square, pointy and ballerina. How to custom cut and angle the form depending on the shape you are going for and the client's nails.  In-depth explanation on the correct structure for each shape and going over correct apex placement, lower and upper arch, C-curve, spine, hair line, etc.
  • Speed building - How to use my signature speed building technique to be able to more or less create the perfect shape without having to file.
  • Shaping - Square, pointy and ballerina. Using my personal file schedule and view schedule, learning how to create the perfect shape with competition style influences.
  • Color Application - Sandwich technique and paint's technique. How to get a perfect even application around the cuticle area and over the entire nail.
  • Glitter Application - Going over every size of glitter (everything from super fine to super chunky) and how to make it look as perfect as possible and not chunky.
  • Babyboomer - This is the ultimate Babyboomer / French Ombre class if you really want to nail it and also be fast doing it. This part contains three sections; "Basics", "Fast & Easy French Ombre", "Advanced French Ombre" plus a bonus. 
  • French Reverse - How to master the technique and create super sharp, crisp smile lines.

Each class ends with different exercises and a quiz. You can practice on your own hands (I recommend to start out with that) and then practice on someone else or use a practice hand. You'll also have access to the schedule that I follow when I do this program at my studio. You can choose to set aside five days and follow the schedule as I've set it up, or spread it out and set it up to fit your life with work, family, etc.

You will receive:

  • Personal login to your own "My Nail Academy" account.
  • 10 classes - 8 modules.
  • Over 400 minutes / 7 hours of filmed content.
  • A class compendium for you to download and print.

Still not convinced?

Are you worried about the price? Don't be! Let me show you:

  • The program is $495. Let's say that you charge on average $50 per client. If you got 5 clients per day it will take you 2 day to get your investment back (10 clients).
  • Once you have finished the program you can actually start to charge more per client, so let's say that you add $5. Then it will take you 9 clients to get the investment back.
  • Just by adding $5 per client, that would give you $5000 extra per year (based on 40 weeks, 5 days per week, 5 clients per day). And personally I think you should add at least $15 per client after completing this program, because your work will be worth it.
  • You'll also be able to work faster so imagine charging $15 extra per client and maybe take on one extra client per day. Now we are talking about $18 000 extra per year.
  • Or maybe you want to work less but earn more. Adding $15 per client and just have 4 clients per day will still get you $10 000 extra per year (based on $75 per client).

So come and join me and so many other students before you, to start a next chapter on your nail journey!

What people are saying about this course

Sure, Celina makes lot of YouTube videos and you think you can learn everything through them. Oh, how wrong you are! This class gave me so much more education and techniques than I ever imagined. If you get the chance to take this course, then do it. You will not be disappointed! You will come back to the salon and be a MUCH better nail tech after this course.

A course all nail techs should take. To me, it feels like I previously only had a scooter license. Now I have got myself a real driver's license but the goal is to become a rally driver. With all the knowledge Celina shared and a lot of training, I know I will get there. This is a fantastic course. I have learned so much that I did not know and no one talked about.

I think this is the best investment that I've done as a nail tech. This course made a tremendous change to my skills and knowledge.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need to be a certified nail tech to participate?

No, anyone can enroll. The only thing I ask is that you follow the rules and regulations of your country/state. If it's not legal to perform nail services in your country without a license/certification, then it's your responsibility to follow those rules.

Will you be a certified nail tech after completing this program?

No, this is not a program that will officially make you a certified nail tech. This is a program that proves that you have been certified by me personally (if you complete part 2).

Why is the program divided into Part 1 and Part 2?

In part 1 you will find all the information and exercises you would get if you were attending the course at my studio, minus my personal interaction where I can look at your work and give you feedback. After completing Part 1, you will be rewarded with a certificate and the title "Celina Rydén Online Trained Nail Artist".

It is totally optional to proceed with Part 2. After finishing Part 1 and the final quiz, you are eligible to enroll in Part 2. This is a program divided into 4+1 modules, where you will get a new schedule and assignments. At the end of Part 2, you will have to pass the certification process and are then awarded the gold emblem, the certificate and the title "Celina Rydén Online Certified Nail Artist".

Please note that Part 2 is not included in the price when you enroll for Part 1, you will have to enroll separately after you have fully completed Part 1 of the program. If you want to read more about Part 2 and how to sign up - CLICK HERE (coming soon).

What products do you need?

You will get a full list of all the products you'll need for the program once signed up. The program is not based on a specific brand so you are free to use the products you know the best and are most comfortable with.

How long does it take to complete the program?

It takes a minimum of five days, if you follow the schedule that I have prepared. However, you have got access to the entire program for a year, so you can decide when and where to work with it and proceed at your own pace.

Will there be any personal feedback from Celina?

In part 1 we will focus on the techniques through videos and make sure that you know exactly how I want you to create a nail to pass the certification. You will have access to a closed Facebook group where you can get to know your fellow classmates and I will also make sure to pop in now and then to help you out.


In part 2 you'll get personally approved by me when you turn in your final certification assignment. There will also be an option to pay extra to get personal feedback from me throughout the program if needed (coming soon).

Can I participate if I have never done gel nails before?

You don´t not need to have an experience with gel before, but to get the most out of this program I do recommend that you should have some of experience of doing nails and not start from scratch. If you have experience with acrylics and want to get into gel, I think that this program is a good introduction and will be helpful for you.

Is this program available worldwide?

Yes, since it's an online program you can participate from anywhere in the world.

Is there a kit included in the price?

We don't offer any nail products at the moment, but you are free to use any brand you like.
