In this class we are going to work with hard gels. If you are only working with acrylics then you will definitely get some inspiration from this course and you'll be able to follow along in most videos (prep, extensions and shaping), but to get the most out of it I recommend that you are using hard gels or soft gels that you can build with.

This course is part of the "Celina Rydén Online Certified Nail Artist - Part 1" program which means that we will only focus on the extensions, sculpting/building and shaping. We will not go over color application, glitter application, french reverse or Babyboomers. If you are interested in the full program and save some money CLICK HERE.

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.
