It is our opinion that learning to do nails on a dummy hand as shown is not the best way to learn. Most of the damage done during extensions is to the natural nail from over filing during preparation. Working on a plastic hand does not allow you to test the condition of the nails or do a mini manicure.

We believe you have to be trained on a live person for us to assess you as a professional technician.
