Reviews from happy students who attended Top Talons Nail and Beauty Courses

I thoroughly enjoyed the facial course.  It was very chilled and didnt feel nervous. All questions were answered and i felt fully competent afterwards.
I have also done a waxing course which was enjoyable and informative.
Ive also done a gel and acryclic for extension course with Top talons.
Ill definately be doing more.   Regards  Rubie


I just wanted to thank Linda and Howard for another excellent course! I did the eyelash course on the 31st March (my 3rd one with top talons !) and it was brilliant !
The lady who took the course Jayne , was fantastic ! I struggled in the beginning to get the hang of it and nothing was too much trouble!
I’ve also done a gel and acrylic for extension course with Top talons.
Her manner knowledge and patience was wonderful and due to the fact top talons don’t run these large room filled courses its more one to one with a lot of practical which is another bonus when like myself I didn’t get the hang of it straight away !
And finally the kit !!!! Girls there kits are amazing and the quality is great don’t ever hesitate ! Thank you again all !!!! Can’t wait to return, Carly


I booked on the Gel & Acrylic course this month, I had tried many times to do my own gels but didn’t have much look at keeping them on.
I met Linda and her husband on the day along with 9 other students, straight away the atmosphere was both welcoming & friendly. Linda gave great instruction, clear and simple to understand which really helped with the learning the process throughout the day. I now feel confident that with a little more practice I will be able to run a successful mobile nail business.
Linda has assured me that should I get stuck she is happy to answer my questions which is a fantastic help. I do not think you will find a better course at such great value, the kit was lovely & I love my metal box.
Thank you Linda & Howard! I have no hesitation in recommending you to other people wishing to start a business in the nail & beauty industry. Thanks again!!


I did my nail extension course with you guys! What can I say other than absolutely fabulous people.
I’ve learned SO much and my nail business is going great. Before I did my course I new nothing about nails.
I’m so happy with top talons. I’ve booked another course in Feb which I’m excited for. Deffo 110% recommend the living day lights out of this company.
The people are amazing – Linda is so down to earth and Marie is a great teacher. Thank you so much for all you’ve taught me. 5 stars for you guys ***** Emma.


Thanks again for having me on one of your courses. This is the 4th course I’ve now done with you.
I’ve completed threading, gel nails, acrylic nails and facial waxing, lash lifting and eyebrow and eyelash tinting.
Thanks again for having me on one of your courses. This is the 4th course I’ve now done with you.
I’ve enjoyed everyone and it has really helped me along in my career. I would definatly recommend top talons. Thanks Hollie.
