Local salons specifically seek out Obsession Certified students as our 200 hour Advanced Nail Technology course is not only exclusive to Obsession Spa but is the best possible foundation for a successful career in the industry. It is taught in a large home salon \environment with a private hands on class that features a custom written textbook and delicate balance of practical and written knowledge and testing.

Student Testimonials:
“I chose this program because it offered much more than just the basics offered in other programs. I also enjoyed the flexible evening and weekend schedule. Cera is still available for my questions and I’ve been out of school for a year and a half. Cera wants you to succeed and will spend extra time with you as necessary to ensure your goals are met. If there’s a particular thing you want to learn in class, she’s more than willing to accommodate these requests. The text book is also a plus in this course. This is an updated text, teaching updated techniques and nail care. I am pleased with my education choice!” – Serena
