Our Student Testimonials

"I had been thinking of completing a gel manicure course for quite some time but was always so hesitant to do so. When I found Blossom Academy I knew straight away that it would definitely suit me! The fact I could train 1:1 with Becci was amazing and meant I got to ask all the questions without that awkward "class room feeling". Becci was super patient and encouraging and has even checked in after to see how I am getting on! I am so glad I chose to train with her and I know if I have any questions she will always answer them - thanks Becci ☺️ x"

"I did my one to one Gel nails course with Becci in December, I’m so glad I book with her! From the very beginning, arranging my training date communication was very good.  She was very thorough and patient whilst explaining and working through the booklet with me. Also very encouraging when it came to the practical.  Any questions I had were answered within depth. I didn’t feel under pressure or pushed for time to complete my models set of nails, And most of the time I felt like I was being taught by someone I had known for ages.  I would highly recommend Becci because she has a lot of experience and knowledge and her teaching technique makes it easy to learn whilst enjoying it at the same time"

"I did my gel nail training with Blossom Academy. The training was everything I wanted and more. So thorough and Becci answered all of my questions. I truly felt after doing the course I was ready to take on the world of gel nails. Becci made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. Not only was she there to support me throughout the training. But is still supporting me months later. She’s always there to answer any questions or just to give a confidence boost in my work. Becci truly is a lovely lady who not only supports me but has created a community where we all support each other. I completely recommend Blossom Academy. Perfect for if you’re an absolute beginner or just want to brush up on some skills. Thank you so much Becci"

“I was looking for a gel nail course that suited me and could be completed remotely during lockdown.. which is when I came across Blossom Academy. The course itself was well structured, accessible and could be done at my own pace, and the website so easy to use. Becci provided so much support before, during and after the course which made me feel much more confident throughout the whole process! If you are looking for a good quality, user friendly gel polish course with a great teacher then I would recommend this one!”

Molly Isted

"I thoroughly enjoyed learning with Blossom Academy. The Gel Polish & Nail Art courses were both fantastic. The course materials were very comprehensive, easy to digest & engaging. I loved the fact that everything was taught through videos as I’m a very visual learner. The nail art course in particular was very helpful. The fact that you can work through these courses in your own time, at your own pace & actually be fully qualified by the end of it is fantastic. The case studies were easy to submit & assessed much faster than I expected. What really sets Blossom Academy apart is the support you receive. I had a few questions along the way & these were answered straight away without making me feel silly for asking. To top it all off, I now have a really beautiful certificate to hang on the wall in my salon! I’d highly recommend Blossom Academy to anyone.”
