The content was excellent. I felt that it really prepared me not just for doing nails, but also for the many things to consider when running a nail salon. I like the fact that I could do the course by distance and that it was so comprehensive in content. Any questions that I had were answered in a timely manner, the instruction was really good, and after completing each module, I felt like I had a really firm handle on it.   It literally covered everything that I needed to know.  I just want to thank Mirage Spa Education Canada for making this program available!!

I feel that the strong points in this course was how they went into great detail about the infections and disease you have to watch out for. As a nail technician it is really important to keep your client happy and healthy, so they always come back. As well as they showed in nice easy steps to properly apply the nail enhancements in a way I can comprehend. Which in return will also keep client happy and coming back. Overall this course has taught me a great deal about how to be a respectable nail technician.  I love how I could do the course at my pace and the information I received was phenomenal. The teacher was more than what I could ask for was there when I needed help, as well she was so pleasant to talk to which was just perfect for me!   Keep up the great work ladies. You all do awesome at what you teach Thank you so much for all you have taught me. I am so happy that I chose your course: )

  3. Being able to call or email anytime and have a prompt reply.
  4. Being listened to, and heard.
  5. Quality supplies to work with.
  6. Friendly approachable team of instructors.
I loved the chance to be allowed to be creative and gain confidence.Cheryl was very natural and warm in her presentation of material (even taking time to watch the wildlife from her window) Your great at teaching, very relaxed.    This has been a great learning experience for me in many ways. I would love to learn with Cheryl again.  I think you have a great hard working team at Mirage Spa and I appreciate the help and support I have had during this learning time. Thank you.

Jackie L. -     Sussex  NB  -  July,  2013Jackie L. - Sussex NB - July, 2013
The evaluation of practical assignments was really great, they always were able to show strong and weak points.   I loved the evaluations, I had some issues with the acrylic and they really showed me what my problem areas were and how to create a better end result.    Thank you for all you have done for me during this course. You have gone above and beyond and I appreciate it so much.
Kyla S. - Vanderhoof  BC -  July,  2013Kyla S. - Vanderhoof BC - July, 2013
I liked how the procedures for gel and acrylics were listed. The pre-service procedure, procedure, post-procedure, reading it all the first time not knowing much is a bit confusing if you don’t understand what all the products and terms are but reading those lists clears everything up!    Loved how I could take the course at home so I can still work full time and take care of my daughter... makes it very flexible but yet a lot of time to get it done. If I had any questions usually the next day I got an answer back from the teacher so it didn’t delay any of my progress !     Thank you for offering this course, I just ordered my products they were here in 3 days, I picked them up Tuesday and by Wednesday evening I had 3 booked clients for that same week!  Lots of knowledge and time was put in to this course to make it manageable for some many people. Thank you!
Kristyne E.   Fort McMurray   AB – May,  2013Kristyne E. Fort McMurray AB – May, 2013
I really appreciated the in depth course material. I found each chapter very easy to understand and it contained a lot of useful knowledge for your everyday life. I also liked how the module had a video along with the picture slides for each assignment.

Katrina LB - Bellevue  SK -  July 2012Katrina LB - Bellevue SK - July 2012
The constructive criticism for the practical assignments as well as the confidence boosters on jobs well done.   The fact that if I needed help with anything, it didn't take long for the instructor to contact me back and they did the best to help me understand so that I could finish the assignments the best I could.  Overall I learnt a lot from the course, I enjoyed it and had lots of fun
Shannon M – Vancouver Island BC -  June,  2012Shannon M – Vancouver Island BC - June, 2012
The theoretical portion of this course was excellent and thoroughly prepared us for the practical assignments.  The course itself has been set up to accommodate your own personal time availability and allows you to work at your own pace without any time constraints. This makes it feasible for everyone to finish assignments and prepare and write the tests and exams. For either stay at home moms, or those of us who work fulltime and are looking for either a career change or an opportunity to supplement their income, this course gives you the opportunity to do so.  Cheryl was available 24/7 and was always extremely helpful and prompt in answering any questions I had.     Great course + great encouragement + fabulous assistance = a new career with limitless possibilities.Thank you so much Cheryl and much success and happiness to you.
Yuko R   Lake Country  BC  - June 2012Yuko R Lake Country BC - June 2012
Thank you for helping me to finish the course. I didn't have time to go to school since I have a baby at home, so I really liked to study at home when I had time at night time or on the weekends.
Crystal D.   Healy  Alaska -  January,  2012Crystal D. Healy Alaska - January, 2012
I think that everything was fantastic.  I loved everything.  I was very pleased.  I felt like I received more than my monies worth.  I feel confident and capable.  I love that everything was so thorough.  I think that the teaching tools and hands on was fantastic and helped.  The testing definitely helped with my memory and ability to put that to work.  I also loved the feedback.  How it was recorded and it was in my home and personal.  Very excellent.  I can’t pinpoint just one or two strong points I think it was all well thought out and helpful.  I loved it all.  I can’t pick or choose one more than the other.  Everything was equally fantastic.  I think the teacher has to be superior for the class to succeed and be outstanding so if I have to pick one I would say that Cheryl was amazing.   Thank you for the time and dedication you spent on this for people like me.  I couldn’t have done this had I had to leave my home, since I have young children.  This is a HUGE blessing and has been worth every penny and minute spent.  I hope that you get additional benefits and blessings from it because you deserve it.  To offer your time and something amazing like this is truly awesome.  THANK YOU!!
Christie F.  Townsend Ontario – January,  2012Christie F. Townsend Ontario – January, 2012

Bev M – Ontario - January,  2012Bev M – Ontario - January, 2012
Very well explained. Easy to understand information. Good setup of question style.  The one on one information when I had a problem, she was prompt with an answer and always super fast at getting back to me.  I would like to thank Cheryl for the great course she has put together. A pleasure working with her and would highly recommend this to anyone interested. I am happy I took this adventure.
