E-files for Beginners

Do you have an e-file that you’re not quite sure what to do with? Have you been thinking about getting an e-file yet find yourself a little too intimidated? This class is for beginners by a beginner. We will cover some basics on e-file knowledge and safety in addition to how to care for your investment. Once the theory is out of the way, it will be time to turn on the machines and get comfortable using them.

You will need to bring your e-file, your bits, a sharpie of any color, and a practice hand with all five nails that have been enhanced with an average salon nail that’s applied yet not finish filed. If I can make friends with an e-file, you can too!

Experience and learn from these top nail professionals as they go head to head in battling each other, raising the bar in education, teaching  you the best tips, tricks and techniques in their field of expertise! 

The team Captains are building their own dynamic teams to compete in front of you and a panel of judges to be named "Best Education Team!".
