After nearly 2 years in the planning, an idea voiced by Kevin Nicholls (from Roo Beauty but an IT geek) to Marian Newman has, at last, resulted in Nail Knowledge.

This is fact based learning on-line. BUT, there is a difference! Nail Knowledge is all the knowledge and understanding essential for the nail professional. It is presented via 3 Masterclasses (The Nail Unit, Product Chemistry and Health & Safety) each having 5-6 separate Lessons.

The Nail Unit:

Lesson 1 – Anatomy of the nail unit 
Lesson 2 – Nail plate growth
Lesson 3 – Nail plate structure
Lesson 4 – Nail bed and lunula
Lesson 5 – Seals of the nail
Lesson 6 – Nail conditions

Product Chemistry:

Lesson 1 – What is a chemical 
Lesson 2 – Lotions, potions and polishes
Lesson 3 – Acrylics and their place in the industry
Lesson 4 – Liquid and powder
Lesson 5 – UV gels and other systems

Health and  Safety:

Lesson 1 – Your working environment 
Lesson 2 – Hygiene
Lesson 3 – Safe use of products
Lesson 4 – Allergies and irritations
Lesson 5 – Working safely with clients

The BIG difference is that it is presented in a totally unique way. Every individual learns in different ways. Some like reading, some listening, some watching and some ‘experiencing’. Theory is almost always taught using 2D images and diagrams. Nail Knowledge animates all of this teaching. You can see the nail growing from the nail matrix; you can watch polymerisation happening; see the blood and antibodies rush to fight an allergen!

Nail Knowledge hits every learning style. Beautiful graphics and animations. The written word, the spoken word together with Knowledge Points in each Lesson, Knowledge Checks after each Lesson. It all culminates in the Final Exam which, when passed, results in the Nail Knowledge Essential Nail Professional Diploma.

The website itself is building into an information base that is an invaluable resource for the nail professional.

Whether you are following your passion for nails, looking to master Product Chemistry or want some additional qualifications to set you apart from other job applicants – NailKnowledge is here to support you with our new Essential Nail Professional Diploma.
