Nail Certificate No.1: Basic Manicure Certificate Template

Standard manicure is pretty simple compared to the rest. After a thorough hand soak, massage, and hand cream application, nail tech removes cuticles, applies base, color, and topcoat, topping things off with a cuticle treatment.

We’ve created two certificate templates for basic manicures:

Nail Certificate No.2: Gel Manicure Certificate Template

The nail technician will prepare the nail by gently filing the nail surface and shaping it. Then comes gel polish and topcoat application — both need to cure under UV lamp lights.

For gel manicure pros, we have two designs as well:

Nail Certificate No.3: Shellac Manicure Certificate Template

Shellac manicure combines regular and gel nail polishes, which also need to cure under UV lights.

Choose one of these nail certificate templates for nail techs specializing in Shellac mani:

This skill demands an appropriate certificate — these nail certificate designs will do the trick:

Nail Certificate No.5: Dip Powder Manicure Certificate Template

Basecoat, dipping the nail into a powder, topcoat seal— and the work is done.

There are two nail certificate designs to choose from for this form of manicure:

Nail Certificate Templates — Necessary Elements

No matter what kind of nail certificate you need to issue, each needs to have the following info to be valid:

- Issuer’s logo: instructor, nail salon, or a beauty school;
- Title: here, you can put Certificate of Completion, Certificate of Attendance, or specify the course title (Basic Manicure Certification, for example);
- Recipient’s full name;
- Recipient’s photo: not necessary, but nice to have for personalization purposes; another good idea is to place a picture of their work here;
- Nail certificate copy: a statement confirming the recipient’s acquired skills and knowledge; Instructor’s full name and signature;
- Instructor’s license: some countries require nail technicians to have a license, most commonly the cosmetologist/esthetician license.
- Date and place.
