Overall the course was amazing! Nicky made us all feel like family and I don't think I have laughed So much in a long time! But most of all Nicky has the patience of a saint!! Not only with me but with all of us!


She was only too kind to explain things Again (and again!) until we got it! She was very good at explaining things simply as she did a demonstration and would often repeat it if we didn't see it properly the first time.


Thank you so much.

My name is Nicki Jackowski, and I currently am the owner and principle of Ella Grace Beauty Salon and Education.

Here at Ella Grace Beauty, we concern ourselves with accepting enrollments by students who wished to become qualified, in the career of Nail Technology.

So why is it so important to finish a course to become a nail tech, when it's not necessary to have any formal certification to work in the industry?

Great Question

Let me take you back a few decades to when a career in Beauty involved all aspects of beauty, not just skin care as we know it today.

It would be a typical scenario for an employee, to receive all of the necessary training required to be delivered to them by the most senior therapist at the salon, and if you were lucky, have it accompanied alongside a TAFE qualification.

During this period in history, a beautician was limited to performing manicures and pedicures, and some sort of silk extensions, known as fibreglass. Therefore not so much time was spent on the skill of becoming a specialised professional.

The Industry had no formal qualifications in place for anyone specialising in Nail Technology, it all just fell under the beautician banner.

Let’s now fast forward to today.

Nail professional now perform manicures and pedicures, which may include nail art, application of artificial nails, nail repair and other specialised hand and foot treatments.

Due to technicians wanting to become more skilled at their nail enhancement services, and not to forget clients demands, the industry leaders created courses in Nail Technology that passed onto the therapist all aspects needed for their career.

This has allowed a vast clientele to access services, and style their hands, feet, and nails in any way they see fit.

Of course, opening up this lucrative industry to mainstream no doubt came with its own set of problems - fungal infections, infectious diseases and disorders, are all commonplace in the environment of our industry.

Without proper education, the manicurist is not only placing their client’s health at risk but allowing themselves, their workmates and workplace to become a pathogenic breeding ground.


Enrolling yourselves into a government recognised, accredited course, like the classes we offer here at Ella Grace beauty, will no doubt arm you with all the tools and information you will need to protect yourselves, your salon and your longevity in this fantastic industry.

Backyard operators who claim they can offer you a short course and teach you what you need to know in the industry are not only a reckless practice but affect your health and financial future.
