This technique offers us the possibility to perform a manicure without cutting, i.e. without scissors or pliers. In this section I will show you exactly how it works. In the hand of a skilled manicurist, the instrumental manicure is a fantastic way to offer the customer a quick and clean result. It expands your skills and additionally increases your professionalism if you can master and offer several techniques. You will also learn new perspectives and develop a better understanding of how to use a milling machine.
If you do not know or have never worked with an instrumental manicure before, I recommend that you first complete the course "Tools and Burr Attachments", as this course explains the basic knowledge of the bits we need for an instrumental manicure and their tasks.
In the 8 videos in this course you will get an unprecedented insight into the apparative manicure. Through our unique macro shots you will learn how we work with this technique on the skin and what we have to pay special attention to in order to achieve a result that is both smooth and long-lasting.
