Manis and Pedis: A Good Skill to Learn.
Why are manicures and pedicures a good skill to learn?
…because there is more to Manis and Pedis than painting nails! Nail Technicians require knowledge in the muscular and skeletal system, knowledge in nail anatomy and diseases, as well as fine motor control skills.
Offering Manicures and Pedicures as a service requires your awareness and responsibility in keeping up with facility requirements and infection control.
It’s not all science though, you also get to paint nails!
Let your imagination run wild! Your Nail Art is your signature.
