Bellus Academy Manhattan, Kansas Nail Technician Courses

Nail Technology 350 Hour Program

A nail technician performs manicures, pedicures and artificial nail services on clients. At the Bellus Academy our Nail technology program provides students an advantage in this field by integrating classroom theoretical studies with hands-on training in our beautiful student salon and spa.

Cosmetology courses in manicures and pedicures teach students to recognize diseases and disorders of the nails, demonstrate proper use of manicure instruments, perform manicure and pedicure treatments that include nail filing, hand and feet massages and nail enamel application. The anatomy and physiology of hands and feet, as it pertains to the lower arm, hand, lower leg and foot, are skills our students build on as they pursue a career in the nail technology field.

To meet the demands of today's market our training also includes the gel nail system, acrylic, silk, nail wraps and repairs, tips, UV gel overlay as well as filing, nail art, buffing and enameling techniques. In a short period of time our nail technology students progress through our 350 hour program to a very high competency level to help ensure success upon entering this fast growing market.

Other aspects of our curriculum include knowledge of the ingredients, function and possible threats of manicure and pedicure products as it relates to public safety and health.  

Our program also teaches students to submit a full professional service including the understanding of proper business and ethical conduct. Customer service is taught throughout the program in all aspects of the consultation, the actual service and client post service care.

There are various options available to graduates of the Nail Technology program, including working in a full service salon, a professional nail shop or a day spa environment.  In just a short period of time with minimal investment a nail technology student is on their way to a rewarding career.
