Raphael’s provides a wonderful basis for nail techs. Thanks to their thorough training and curriculum; I was able to pass my state board exams as a Managing Manicurist with all scores in the excellent range. This foundation along with expanded independent study has enabled me to move forward in the beauty industry. To date I have been in national publication six times including four times in Nails Magazine. In addition to achieving my Instructors License; I also am selling artificial nails around the world. Currently; my mother and I are in the process of opening what will be my own salon when I turn 21. The business instruction that I received at Raphael’s will be an invaluable tool as I expand into this new venture.
