Bellissima Gel UK & Ireland Training Locations/Dates
Manicure and/or Pedicure Courses
It is an industry requirement that attendees of the courses below hold a valid manicure and/or pedicure qualification. Manicure and pedicure qualifications can be gained either through Bellissima Gel, your local college or through your previous education system.
Knowing how to give a really good manicure is the basis for a tech to work their way up to the top position in any salon. You will learn to carry out the treatments perfectly but you will also learn why they are important and the anatomy and physiology of the nails.
Gel Skills Courses
This gel skills course is for those new to gel nails or for those that have lost their confidence after a break away from nails, maybe to have a baby or a change in careers. It is the same as the conversion course but the demos are longer and there is more time to practise and ask questions.
Gel skills will teach you to apply Bellissima Gel as natural gel overlays, French overlays and coloured overlays. It will also teach you to do infills and soak offs. It will also teach you to work with our bottle ranges. Once you have completed this course we suggest you attend our Nail Extensions and/or our Sculpture course(s). For best results compete both Gel Skills and Extensions or Gel Skills and Sculpture courses in one day.
The conversion course is for people who have worked with a gel or acrylic for a long time and are happy with the standard of nails they produce. This course will teach you to do nails the Bellissima way and how to get the very best out of our ranges. You only need to do either the Gel Skills or Conversion course, we can advise you based on your experience which course is best for you, 08458 622 766.

Nail Extensions Courses
The nail extensions course will teach you how to apply tips to natural nails in a safe and easy manner. It will also teach you how to blend the tips so no lines are visible when applying a light colour or clear gel.
Like with all of our courses, the more knowledge you have, the more services you can offer your customers, the more money you can make. Long nails are big right now, either natural style or stiletto, by learning to add extensions you can increase the price of your treatments and in turn increase your profits.
There is high demand for natural beauty these days and some customers do not like having tips and resin on their nails. Luckily we have a solution! The sculpture course will teach you how to create nails by using only gel. This is a wonderfully quick way of creating a full set or a random repaired nail out of just gel.
The gel is often stronger than a plastic tip and is viewed by most as the more natural version of extensions. It is also far easier to sculpt a large thumb nail than try to find a large tip to fit it perfectly.
Gel Toes with Glitter Courses
You may be thinking: 'If I can do gel nails why would I need to learn to gel toes, aren't they the same?' But Gel Toes is a valuable course to attend. It will teach you how to build the gel on a problem nail. Problem nails are more common on feet, as people's feet tend to get bashed about a lot more than their hands do.
It will also teach you how to work with our fabulous glitter range, which you can then apply to finger nails too. You can charge an extra £3-£6 per set for the use of glitter which means one 10g pot of glitter can make you an extra £165-£330 profit, without taking any extra time to complete the treatment.
Working Colour Workshop
The working colour workshop is a wonderful way of introducing new options to your clients. Not all nail art is loud and in your face; some is very beautiful and can match all of the outfits worn between infills. Working colour is all about freedom of expression and learning new very easy skills that produce very impressive looking nails.
By offering 'nail art' or 'colour work' you can increase your profits. During the workshop you will start to create your board. This is a selection of your work and your skills. It is for displaying very proudly wherever you do your nails (mobile techs may wish to have a small portable board). It will show your clients how skilled you are. Even if they only want French, they will know you are capable of so much more and will recommend you to their friends.
