You will be shown the correct cuticle efile bits for each step when removing cuticle and excess dead keratinised skin, as well as the combination manicure using precision cuticle scissors and tools. You must already hold a recognised Efile qualification and Gel Polish or Gel Qualification for the later part of the class.

Using the Efile you will be guided on correct speeds to safely tidy and prep thoroughly. You will then be shown tips and tricks to provide a Gel manicure service to ‘Close the gap’ and gain super close, neat cuticle work.
