In addition, you will learn how to use Gelips, our easy-to-use full coverage nail extensions made from a high-grade ABS that you can do fills with.

Gel nail systems are quickly becoming the most in-demand salon service for clients today. Popularized in the 1980s, the soft potted gel system is the predominant way to do nails in Japan.

In this class, you will learn how to use Japanese nail techniques in mastering gel nails.


KOKOIST was created in 2010 by CEO Koko Kashiwagi. Meeting the demand for gel products that were not available at the time, KOKOIST is the first semi-hard gel of its kind. This high-quality professional-grade gel is 9-free, long-lasting for 4+ weeks, and highly pigmented to satisfy the needs of all clients.

Semi-hard gels will allow you to have the best of both worlds from the soft gel and hard gel.


The KOKOIST Japanese Nail Gel System allows for soak-offs but can be filled in due to its strong and durable base and builder component. Lastly, there is no need for a bonder or dehydrator when using KOKOIST, which helps to save the integrity of the natural nails.

Sign up for the class and get the skills you need to be able to create long-lasting, strong, and healthy nails for your clients. Talk about #naturalnailgoals!
