  • Lesson 1: History Really Does Repeat Itself

    Besides owning two good ears and listening skills, manicurists are licensed Nail Care Specialists (or Nail Technicians) who treat the hands and feet.
  • Lesson 2: Home Manicure Techniques

    You may already have some of your manicure tools on hand. If not, purchase what you need for your home manicure.
  • Lesson 3: Steps To a Perfect Manicure

    Inspect your manicure kit for all the tools and supplies you'll need for your home manicure. Include a clean, folded hand towel to rest your hands on while manicuring.
  • Lesson 4: What Nails Say About You and Your Health

    Nails are made of a tough fibrous tissue called Keratin. One of the body's strongest tissues can still become weak, break or grow too slowly due too infections or chemical exposure.
  • Lesson 5: Nail Polish and Trends

    If you must use a nail hardener, don't use it regularly. It makes good sense to apply it only to the tip of the nails where cracking, chipping and peeling occur.
  • Lesson 6: Are Artificial Nails For You?

    Before you decide on the type of artificial nails you want, talk to a manicurist and ask if she is skilled in the application of artificial nails, and how long she has been a manicurist. You want an expert.
  • Lesson 7: Home Pedicures

    Busy men and women who are constantly on the move often neglect to care for their feet.
  • Lesson 8: Home Mani-Pedi Vs. a Salon Mani-Pedi

    Remember, licensing doesn't mean safe. The main complaints are poor hygiene, shoddily done manicures and poor customer service.
  • Lesson 9: Organic Nail Lotions and Potions

    Organic or home remedies are great ways to save money and rid oneself of the harmful chemicals found in today's cosmetics and lotions.
  • Lesson 10: Tools of the Trade

    With all the gadgets to pick from, you can personalize your home treatment to include a manicure, pedicure and a steam facial.
  • Lesson 11: What to Expect From a Beauty School

    If you enjoy working with your hands and consider yourself, literally, a hands on people person, a career as a manicurist may be just what you need to reboot yourself and learn a new career.
