The Nail Thoughts Certification is a program to certify you in the application of long wearing structured overlays using Nail Thoughts Base (NTB).

After taking and implementing this course you will have the knowledge and tools to help you apply Nail Thoughts Bases quick and efficiently, so that you can reduce your application time and end up with overlays that require minimal finish-filing and last 3+ weeks!

Nail Thoughts Bases are offered in clear and tinted shades. The NTB in clear is a two-in-one product with base and build components suitable for overlaying short to medium-length natural nails. The tinted bases are 3-in-1, with the same characteristics of the Clear Base, but with color added to them. The NTBs are a low to medium viscosity, offered both in bottle or pot form for your convenience (same formula).
