Hi! I am new to this forum. I am excited to be talking to everyone!

I am having to teach myself how to do Acrylic Nails myself because my school is a joke!

Is there a kit I can buy with everything in it to start practicing?

Also if you are in TN, what things will I need to know for the board test? Services I have to perform?

All companies have try me size kits-you just need to call them to have them send them. Most are free. Smile

Also I truly recommend you plan to attend the Nail Tech Networking Event of the Smokies in Gatlinburg http://www.nailtechevent.com

I just took my boards in June 2010.
I had to do the following:
mani on one hand painted with red polish
one nail wrap
one acrylic nail sculpt
one acrylic with tip
pedi on one foot painted with red polish

You can find out all details her on the State of TN state board website.

They outsource the testing to a company called PSI Examination Service. However the PSI website seems to down at the moment. The PSI site will have the exam details, step by step.
My school is the same way. We had to teach ourselves. Id love to have someone show me how to do everything. Good luck!
Thank you so much for your replies.
