Structure The Dual Day Course

We require students to arrive at our academy for 9.30am, the day will begin with a brief introduction, refreshments and handing out training manuals. We will then move swiftly onto the theory and step by step of completing a full set of full cover gel nail extensions. We will then have a short lunch break whilst we set up for the practical assessment. Our educator will then demonstrate a full cover gel extension application on one nail and then you will then complete the other nails. We will be on hand to help and guide you throughout your day and would encourage you to ask if you are ever in doubt. We will then end our day with a question and answer and a little advice on your next steps and where to take your nail career from here. You will then have your final appraisal where you will become qualified in Full Cover Gel Extensions.


Following the day you will be able to gain insurance to start offering your treatments to paying clients. Our courses are accredited and we’ll provide you with a list of approved insurers.

    Is there a dress-code?

    Not at all, we just advise that you wear something that makes you feel comfortable.

    Do I need a model?

    Pre-covid, this was the case and sometimes we used to supply the models too - we prefer for students to learn on real hands.
    However, due to new restrictions from the pandemic, classes are strictly student only and because of this, students work on each other taking turns to practice. We actually find this to have some extra benefits.

    Where are you located?

    Our training academy is in Cannock, Staffordshire.


    After searching everywhere for nails courses I found LUX and I’m so glad I did!!! I did my gel polish application and full cover soft gel extensions. I loved every minute of the courses and met some lovely ladies. I felt so welcomed by all the ladies that work at LUX and Charlotte gave me all the tools and knowledge to leave LUX feeling confident to carry out treatments for clients I can’t wait to go back and do my acrylic nails course

    What a lovely group of girls. All welcoming and made me feel at ease. They gave us an indepth introduction to the course which we was studying: individual eyelash extension course. Then moved onto our own training heads and kit provided to use. With help from 2 trained girls for support throughout and monitoring. Then we had practised on each other. After we was reassured and given certificates and contact details to a private group for access for support if needed in the future. Shall definitely come back for more training. Thank you so much for today.

    Absolutely lovely girls in the salon. Did a individual lash course today and they made me feel so comfortable. Only small groups so get enough 1-1 time to concentrate on areas you don’t feel 100% on. Will definitely be returning to do another course. Give you all the tips and tricks to expand your clientele. Highly recommend this academy 100% the best I’ve seen.

    I cannot recommend Lux training academy anymore for training, both charl and chantelle are absolutely amazing and help anytime you need that little push. I was so nervous to start with but as soon as I walked into the course all my worry went away and I started to feel really happy and a little more confident. Best course ever and the most polite and kind ladies who work there too❤

    I couldn't recommend a better beauty academy! I came across Lux on social media after hunting for lash extension courses, I enquired and spoke to the lovely Charlotte. I just had a baby and was dreading leaving her for a even a few hours, but once I was at Lux the hours just flew because I was enjoying myself so much! All of the staff are so kind and friendly and the training is spot on. The course took 6 hours and I walked away feeling confident and qualified! I'll be returning for the nail courses and I cant wait!
