Once you have started working on the nail profession you will never want anything else!
When you have been gripped by the nail virus, this will not let you go! Nail technician is a practical, creative and social profession.
The contact with your customers, the countless possibilities, for example making people happier / more beautiful, working independently, combining your creativity with your profession.
But also being an entrepreneur, working when it suits you, for example when the children are at school. Working from your own home, with low investment costs and still having a full-fledged company.

No two days are the same when you choose this great profession.

Why choose a course at Lilly Nails in the forest of training?
Lilly Nails teaches small groups (max 6 students), so that everyone gets the attention he / she needs, so each student receives individual guidance.
Lilly Nails teaches according to the Swedish method, this is a way of training that has been voted the best form of training in Scandinavia for many years. The difference with other courses is that here we go deeper into the theory, including the recognition of various nail disorders, anatomy & pathology of the nail unit, so hygiene in the salon is also very important, these are a few aspects that we will discuss go into effect during the training.


Information about our teachers.
Lilly Nails teachers are required to attend annual training courses in Sweden at Lilly Nails headquarters to maintain our teacher license. The study programs in Sweden have already been voted the best study programs in Scandinavia several times.

2 teachers are employed at Lilly Nails in Purmerend. Both teachers have more than 10 years of experience and follow additional training courses at least 4 times a year at home and abroad to provide you with the latest techniques.

Class days are from 9 to ....
We start with theory, which takes about an hour to 1.5 hours.
Then we will focus on practice and we will teach you how to place artificial nails in a responsible way so that you do not damage the natural nails.
The lessons take place once a week in Purmerend from 9:00 am to approximately 4:00 pm.


Of course we advise you to learn all the techniques so that you can provide every customer with the most beautiful and especially the best nails for that customer.
When do you place acrylic nails, when do gel nails and when Invicta?
It is not the case that every customer who enters your salon can place gel nails or acrylic nails, this is due to various aspects of the natural nail, on that basis you choose the best product for the customer.


Gel nails have been known in the Netherlands for a long time,
gel is a pudding-like substance with a high viscosity, which behaves partly like a liquid and partly like a solid. Gel is and always remains flexible and moves with the natural nail. Gel only becomes a solid hard structure when you cure it in a UV / LED lamp.



Acrylic consists of a powder and a liquid, they cannot do anything separately. Acrylic hardens by heat and therefore does not need to be placed in a UV / LED lamp.
Acrylic is hard and does not move with the natural nail.


What is Invicta?
Invicta is the latest innovation in the nail industry. Each brand has given it its own name, one of the other names is polygel.
Lilly Nails has developed Invicta.
Invicta is a combination of gel and acrylic, strong, flexible, nice to apply.
This product is a huge addition to the industry because it is odorless and softer to file, so fewer physical complaints
Many salons already offer this and this will only conquer the market more. A real addition to the current products. For example, with this product you can easily work in a hair salon or beauty salon because it is odorless.
Do you want to be progressive?
Then choose a combination training where you learn all the techniques of our wonderful profession.
