It is a Beautiful thing

when a career and a passion come together?

Here's what our students have to say...

My career as a Certified Nail Technician began back in the spring of 2009. Soon after I graduated my course I became an employee and worked directly under Corrine for 7 years. I gained the most invaluable lessons and tips in the industry. She is incredibly knowledgeable and is a great mentor for anyone who wants to thrive in the nail business. The staff, at A Nail Above The Rest are so quick to help with questions at any time and love to see women join them in become amazing entrepreneurs! I highly recommend this training facility to everyone in search of a close knit nail family who cares a lot about one another! - Kelcie Olson of Knockout Nails
