Congratulations on taking the next step towards an exciting new future with our range of technical and professional full-time and apprenticeship programmes. Enjoy our new TV and online adverts, and find out from our students what it is like to study at a top-performing college.
The gel system you will learn is a one-step system that strengthens and promotes the growth of natural nails. It is applied onto a natural nail, tip or gel extension. The gel cures under a UV light, leaving the nail strong but flexible with a natural glossy or high shine finish.
We are celebrating winning one gold, one silver, and two bronze medals at the prestigious AHT competition.
