How to become a certified nail technician in UK?

To become a fully certified nail technician, you need to know all the tricks and – more importantly – TIPS of the trade. Luckily for you, NTC offers all that – and more.

NTC is recognised by one of the leading accrediting bodies in the Associated Beauty Therapists (ABT), meaning we are approved up and down the country.

With every accredited nail technician course you complete at NTC you will receive a fully accredited professional Diploma certificate. You’ll then be prepped, primed and perfectly shaped for entry into the beauty industry – achieving your career goals one nail at a time.

Once you become a certified nail technician you could earn unlimited income, depending on how hard you work. The rule of thumb is that the more you work as a nail technician, you will make more.

With hard work, study and creativity, you can be a nail technician for a prestigious brand, or in your own salon or you could work in a completely unique environment.

Many nail technicians work as freelancers, which allows them to work in their own home or the homes of clients. Some nail technicians work for movie companies, tv shows or photographers, helping style client's nails before they go on camera. These positions are fast-paced and may require less creativity by the nail technician.

If you are interested in learning the skills needed to become a nail technician and how to enter the nail industry, we recommend that firstly you achieve a manicure qualification to lay your foundations in learning techniques to build on the knowledge you will gain from this.

From here there are many accredited nail technician courses depending on your desires, such as gel, acrylic extensions, gel polish, nail art and sculpting.
