 What my students say

I am so, so pleased I chose Debi at The Nail Centre for my training! I was made welcome from the moment I stepped indoors and my nerves disappeared. Such a relaxed atmosphere. Debi is an excellent trainer. She is very knowledgeable and takes into account the student's experience and builds on that. I already had theoretical knowledge but not practical. Debi gave full acknowledgement to my theory and concentrated on practical. I have learned so much and am now confident in working with clients. Although I was, technically, already qualified, I didn't feel as if I was but, after training with Debi, I do! The course began on time and finished when expected. I cannot recommend Debi at The Nail Centre highly enough.                                 Angie B.  March 2018

 I trained with Debi back in 1994 when i came back to UK from Australia, i wanted a change after working in retail, Debi Allison trained me then Debi took me under her wing and i worked with Debi at her salon also training school, we had lots of fun and good times, Debi taught me everything about being a nail tech, chucked me in the deep end at times to cover her clients while she was training, but it gave me good practice
And since then i have had a very successful business, with clients who are still with me since then, At Nail and Beauty solutions in Coltishal,,, 
Thanks Debi your fab xxxxx                                Janet

 I completed my first practical course (Luxury Manicure) with Debi on Tuesday and, I can honestly say, all of the reviews I had read about Debi and her courses proved to be 100% true. I had a great day, learnt so much and met a wonderful trainer who made me completely at home and relaxed. A super environment in which to learn. I am really looking forward to January, when I'm next in UK, to continue on my journey to becoming a nail tech. Thank you so much Debi.                                                            2017

Don't think about training anywhere else. Debi is an incredible trainer, patient supportive and completely passionate about enabling you to become the best nail technician you can be. I had the best 4 days on the complete nail technician course. Debi makes you feel at home in every way.  She gave me fantastic advice on how to run a business and tips and tricks to help in startup, and future ventures. I love her, and will be popping round for tea at some point I'm sure!  Thank yoooouuu SO much xxx    Tina

Debi is amazing, I'm not sure this week what I would have done without her. The support is second to none, training informative, constructive and knowledgeable.
Don't go anywhere else for nail training.   
I had to learn the hard way with inaccurate training which Debi has had to correct. I'm positive for my future as a professional nail

Hi Debi,   Thank you so much for today, I thoroughly enjoyed it and am so looking forward to starting my gel nail business.  I have decided I would like to order the gel polish starter kit please.                          Lorna  29/09/2017

I've literally done every course Debi has to offer, she's so friendly, helpful and the courses are in depth and full of information, as well as lots of fun! Once you've qualified you feel confident enough to start practicing on family and friends with ease of knowing what your doing and if you do get stuck Debi offers a lifetime support for any hurdles you struggle with. Truly an amazing lady with Great teaching techniques that are fun and well organised, you feel gutted when the course is finished! Highly recommended:)
