But what does a nail technician actually do and how do you become one?A nail technician is a trained professional working in the health and beauty industry who works to take care of, decorate and improve a client's nails. Nail technicians perform manicures - dealing with the nails on the hands, and pedicures - dealing with the nails on the feet. Most nail technicians also offer hand or foot massages as part of their treatments.

A nail technician does not just shape and decorate a client's nails - they are also responsible for the health of their client's nails as well. A nail technician must also be able to prepare nails for specialist treatments and perform such treatments as: extensions, adding gemstones, adding acrylic nails, glitter, air-brushing techniques, stencilled patterns and also be able to maintain existing treatments or replace nails.

An important aspect of the role of a nail technician is to be able to advise their client on suitable after-care for their nails too. Nail technicians work either in salons, spas, health clubs, on cruise ships, in holiday resorts, in hotels, in department stores, from their own homes or offer a mobile service.

For anyone who wishes to become a nail technician this comprehensive guide will show them how.
