Close the Gap – Combination E-file Course.

On this course also known as “Russian Manicure’ you will be shown the art of perfect preparation which can speed up prep time as well as ensure gel and enhancement products can be applied super close, giving the illusion of ‘no gap’ at the cuticle. BUT this gives you those flawless results- Chrissies way! Custom techniques with a series of cuticle bits that enable this to be a stand alone service or adopted into your salon work to gain those flawless results and close cuticle work.

You will be shown the correct cuticle efile bits for each step when removing cuticle and excess dead keratinised skin, as well as the combination manicure using precision cuticle scissors and tools. You must already hold a recognised Efile qualification and Gel Polish or Gel Qualification for the later part of the class.

Using the Efile you will be guided on correct speeds to safely tidy and prep thoroughly. You will then be shown tips and tricks to provide a Gel manicure service to ‘Close the gap’ and gain super close, neat cuticle work.
You will need the Efile manicure bit kit plus your efile and all usual sundries and Gel polish base coats, colours etc. (Kit list provided and as a special offer on this course you will get a FREE Close the Gap Drill bit kit)
