Student Feedback

Following my experience on the Nail Technician course at the Carlton Institute's Glasgow training school, I would highly recommend it. We were provided with excellent training manuals for the theory work, and then spent the majority of the day completing practical demonstrations. Our lecturer was amazing and very helpful. If you're planning on setting up your own business like me, or just want to learn some new manicure skills, then this is the ideal course for you.
