Course Description

The practice of manicuring is a worldwide fashion statement.  If you're putting a chunk of your paycheck into beauty products, manicures and pedicures, you may want to save precious dollars by learning to do your own mani-pedi.  How to Manicure gives comprehensive information about keeping natural nails healthy and beautiful, and all the essentials about the chemistry, application and care of artificial nails

After learning about the risks and rewards of a professional nail salon, you'll know what to look for when selecting a salon and nail technician.  Your personal manicure kit will become your best ally, whether you manicure at a salon or decide to fatten your wallet by doing the manicures yourself.  Nail products are at a whole new level, and you'll discover the latest manicure products and tools to get the job done on a professional scale. 

Feet need love too.  Last years sandals will look brand new after you complete the steps to a perfect pedicure.   Foot problems can cast a cloud on a perfect day.  How to Manicure helps you deal with common foot problems and practical home remedies and cures for relief.

Take the anxiety out of manicuring the "other hand" when you learn the tips to professionally apply that perfect shade of polish.  How to Manicure takes the mystery out of hand and nail care, pedicures, artificial nails, problem nails and, nail diseases and infections, with emphases on self-maintenance.  Take a good look at your nails.  Do you need to home manicure?  Find all you need to know about home manicuring in this How to Manicure course.
