I am so grateful for TAOND! With my daughter needing full time care and being in and out of the hospital, I would never be able attend a conventional nail school with my demanding schedule, but with the TAOND curriculum I can work at my own pace while taking care of my girls. The program is just as good if not better than what many conventional schools offer nail techs.

"First I would like to thank TAOND for creating such a detail oriented course, that is easily available. The staff are super helpful and very positive. My Mentor Brittany was extremely fast at replying whenever I had Questions and always gave both positive and constructive feedback so I could get the most out of each section of the course. Since you can work at your own pace and go on at any time of day there is no scheduling to stick to. Having now completed the Acrylic Mini Course I am more confident in my skills and look forward to my future in the nail industry. Keep up the good work."

TAOND has been amazing for me! Being able to do it at my pace is brilliant for me and my family (five kids makes for busy life) plus working, Im able to study when I can, and finish as I can. The support I get, is amazing and what I love the most, is the information you get!! I've already taken a gel course in my home town, for three times what I paid for the full TAOND course and this, to me, feels like waaaaaaay more information!! Big thank you :)

Being a student at TAOND has helped me thrive and be successful in the nail salon industry. Learning online is challenging and rewarding. Compared to in-class training at a local cosmetology school; TAOND helps you gain confidence in yourself as an entrepreneur and pursue your nail salon goals as an independent without depending on someone else. TAOND exclusively focuses on Nail Design. Each student gets the individual attention that is needed and the school is ideal for those who have budget constraints and who work full-time. As a graduate at TAOND, I am better prepared working in the salon industry compared to students who attended a local cosmetology school (where most of their attention focuses on aesthetics and barbering). If you want to attend a school without the ridiculous price tag and is better prepared to teach you the latest trends in the nail industry, choose TAOND - The Academy of Nail Design.

I want to thank The Academy of Nail Design for helping fulfill my dream of becoming a Certified Nail Professional. I completed the full nail professional program and I am very thankful for the encouragement, support and positive feedback. I highly recommend this program to anyone that is interested because it is the perfect fit for any schedule. I worked full time at my evening job and worked on the program whenever it was convenient for me and now I am a GRADUATE. There is no time limit with this program and it is an excellent way to do this online program while working or whatever it may be. I am so proud of myself, but could of never succeeded without the help of the TAOND team. Thanks to you all for the prompt responses, support and helping me with questions and concerns when needed. You all did an amazing job and got me where I am today. Each time I look on my wall in my nail room at the completion of the program, I feel so happy, successful, satisfied and proud of my accomplishments. The modules and step by step videos were very informative, in depth and up to date. The tutors were exceptional, professional, efficient and instructional. I am presently working from my home and I am currently building my clientele. I love my career and extremely excited to continue to grow in the nail industry. I am so happy to be a TAOND graduate. My dreams have come true and couldn't have completed this program without TAOND! I have the tools I need, professionalism and safety from this program.

As a qualified but not practicing nail technician I had rediscovered my love of nails and nail art after quite a few years away from the table. I looked around locally, in rural Australia, for a refresher course and specifically a nail art course however there was nothing that ticked all the boxes. I was very excited when I found TAOND and discovered they had courses that suited me and I could do the work online, at a time that suited me. The staff were very helpful, replied to every inquiry and question I had very quickly by email and instilled complete confidence that I would learn in a supported, encouraging environment. And that is exactly what they delivered. The online video tutorials and modules got me up to speed in no time and the nail art course was challenging and pushed me to try and perfect techniques I would never normally have tried which is exactly what I wanted. While an online course always involves a level of self-motivation to get through, if you love nails, want to start or develop a career in nails then TAOND has everything you need. It is an amazing resource in the nail industry and I am so thankful to have found them.
Again, thank you so much for all your encouragement, support and for your wonderful program!

Thank you Jennifer
The experience with NASP and especially the residency in St.Kitts has been mind blowing. I knew when I started with TAOND that I wanted to specialize in feet. Learning about ingrown nails and the BS Brace to treat them was my first major goal. For this I needed the basic nail tech course so I could take the master pedicurist course. TAOND gave me the knowledge in nails and the skin surrounding the nails as well as common foot care techniques. The master pedicurist course gave me what I needed to know to perform BS brace applications and increased knowledge in pedicures. But as I learned I discovered there is so much more I could do to keep feet and nails health and ready for that pretty polish. My focused turned to preparing case studies and taking additional courses to prepare for the residency program in St.Kitts where I received a bachelor of science in podology.
Part of the program included working in a free clinic performing advanced pedicures. With the advanced pedicure we look at many aspects of the feet and lower leg. The person that took me the longest time had the toes amputated from one foot and a mid foot amputation of the other. Our work on the island reached 855 people in 4 1/2 days. The conditions we where able to see are common on the island as the incidents of diabetes is between 60 and 80% of the population. Also the health care system is such they don't regularly run to the doctor or seek help that may come with a price tag.
Now that I have completed my BScPod I plan to go back and finish my TAOND Derma Care Nail Specialist program. I had completed most of the course before I needed to put most of my time and efforts into the BScPod. The beauty of TAOND meant I could put that part on hold and go back. It may only be the marketing plan I need to finish but I want to be able to review it all.
I love how TAOND allows you to grow in the area you are most interested and at the pace that works for you.
Of course this is just a brief overview of my experience should you wish more details in any area feel free to contact me. Oh and by the way NASP has now introduced a Masters and Phd level. Education is key.

You all have made the experience of learning not so daunting and so accessible for me. I found the modules informative and up to date with the industry as well as the Tutors amazing in responding to questions concerns and always ready and able to give feedback. I appreciate how quickly the practices were marked after being submitted as it helped keep a flow going once I was doing the actual models and learning the procedures in the flesh and not just reading it. I loved the feedback where to improve and how to do it. It just made me able to perform the services better each time. I waited many years to finally start as a nail professional and I feel I have the tools I need thanks to TAOND to do what I have wanted successfully now!
I would recommend anyone looking into a career in the nail industry to look at TAOND as the perfect fit for any schedule and as well being very very helpful and well rounded going into the industry. Thanks so much!!
