This is a book that provides comprehensive and detailed instruction in all aspects of Nail technology. Written by industry experts; it clearly illustrates the authors' expertise in this subject. For those Beauty Therapists who want to specialise in Nail technology and become Nail Technicians this book is a superb reference guide. A main feature of this book is the attention to detail in every aspect of becoming a Nail technician. Not only does it provide all the necessary study skills for becoming a professional; it provides opportunities for studying competition nail art and becoming a lecturer! It is clear the authors are passionate about the Nail industry and this book demonstrated this to a high degree. In educating students; this book also serves to ultimately raise the profile of the Nail technology industry.
