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.

Course Lessons

  • 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.
