  6. 5

    This has been one of the best nail courses I’ve ever taken! I love to learn new things but sometimes attending nail classes in person can be expensive, or inconvenient, and you may not feel like you really get out of it everything you were hoping, especially factoring in the cost of resources and travel.

    I highly recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in freehand nail art, even if you do not have prior experience. The techniques on how to create the complicated designs were broken down, which makes it doable for any skill level, as long as one has the passion, patience and desire to learn.
