  • The Academy  prides itself on strict standards for sanitation.
  • Students learn more than the basics of acrylic. They are guided in different ways to apply acrylic that can reduce service time and be used for different forms of art such as Acrylic 3D flowers, Encapsulation, Pink/White Acrylic Ombre, and Pink/ White Full Acrylic French. Students also learn acrylic nail enhancements on forms as well as tips, to ensure versatility.
