See What Our Students Have To Say

I have attended the Nail Tech course at Renaissance Academie. I passed my state board exams both written and practical and I want to especially thank the leaders and those who instruct the Mock Prep courses. Also, I benefited greatly from the video provided for my review. I felt extremely prepared and confident and comfortable as can be when being tested. Anything that I slipped up on was only because of my own personal test anxieties. And I knew better because of how well I felt prepared. I want to thank Sonya, Janelle, Maddi and all of my leaders who have been available to me throughout the offered program.
