Class Description

This is an “Educational Video Course” taught by Akzentz Certified Educator (ACE) and Nails Magazine Next Top Nail Artist Finalist, Danielle Costantino.

Many gel courses focus on sculpting or building the actual enhancements, few teach about the process once your client returns, commonly called a fill. This class will demonstrate the full process of performing an easy salon gel rebalance and fill. You will learn a foolproof process to keep your clients coming back month after month. In this class Danielle will be using an Efile and Akzentz gel, however, this class will teach techniques that will easily convert over any gel system. Danielle teaches this same course in person for over $200 per student. With Danielle’s new online courses you can get top-notch education easily and affordably via Lably. The benefit to purchasing a Lably course is that the recording stays in your course portfolio forever to rewatch over and over.
