Our students and grads rave about their experience with TAOND. 
Check out the supportive and wonderful words from just a few students over the past 19 years!
And we have one very Special Testimonial we want to share - Karyn's Story
I just graduated from TAOND’s Mini Gel Certificate Course and couldn’t be happier! I have wanted to take a nail enhancement course for almost 20 years, but working full-time didn’t allow me to attend in-person classes. I did some research on online gel certification courses and they were all outside of my budget, until I found TAOND! I researched the school and even called Jennifer personally and she was a great help! I was worried that because I had no experience with nails whatsoever, that perhaps this wasn’t something I should pursue. One chat with Jennifer and that changed my mind. I started my theory portion just before the COVID lockdown of March 2020. I was able to complete the theory portion and then start performing my practical work upon reopening in June. If I struggled or had questions, I would just reach out to my tutor, Brittany, and she would answer me right away with encouraging words and great feedback on all my practical work. I found the detailed feedback exceptionally helpful. I even scheduled three separate tutoring sessions on three different areas I was struggling with (my tip applications, finish filing, and finally getting my timing down to prepare for my final exam). When I got word that I had passed my practical exam, I was unbelievably proud at what I had accomplished! The TAOND staff are the most empowering women I have ever encountered and their success is seeing their students succeed. Thank you Brittany, Jennifer and Christina for everything!

I have been offered the opportunity to be a part of the Nail Artistry Certification Program. It has been a fabulous opportunity. This course was about showing off your nail art talent. The team goes above and beyond to make sure you have all the tools you need to succeed. They are always there to help you, give advice and ensure you are achieving your full potential. As I am now a GRADUATE of this program, I am enthusiastic to continue my skills in the professional industry.
I am also currently taking the Full Certification Program. I love how in detailed this program is. The modules and step by step videos were very informative, in depth. Its important that I had find a program that fit well into my busy schedule. TAOND is great.
Thank you again TAOND for this opportunity to expand my knowledge in Nail Art.

This has been a fabulous course! It is very informative and thorough and learning at my own pace was great since I do have some littles running around at home. I am very excited to start my career in the Nail Industry and just glitter up the world, because nails without glitter are just too naked for me. The tutors are wonderful and are always available to help as well as the staff at TAOND itself. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in this industry. Absolutely loved it!!

Like most nail enthusiasts I started out doing my own nails at home, I loved the art of it, I loved the details and designing...I just loved everything about nails. A lot of family and friends started to take notice and would ask me if I was ever going to start doing them professionally, and to be honest I never thought about it. But one day I decided to look into it and boy was I shocked, first at the cost to attend a nearby school and second that the program didn’t really cover a whole lot of information. So I took to the internet to see about online courses. TAOND came up at the top of the list so I decided to have a look and see what they were about...I was blown away. All of the wonderful things everyone had to say about it, all the information they showed about the programs (and that was just the tip of the iceberg), and then seeing how affordable it was. I chose to give it a shot, and let me tell you it was the best decision I ever made. The team at TAOND go above and beyond to make sure you have all the tools you need to succeed. They are always there to help you, give advice and ensure you are achieving your full potential. The fact that you can work at your own pace is absolutely amazing, you don’t feel rushed or overwhelmed at all. I have other friends who have done in-class nail courses and told me they never covered half of the things TAOND does. BEST.DECISION.EVER. Thank you TAOND!-

My name is Kathrine Baird I'm a wife and mother of two. I have always had a passion for art and nails but I could never find a school that fit my needs, which was to be able to stay home with the kids and not have to sit in a traditional class it just wouldn't work for me. I went back a forth to TAOND's web site for a year, reading every word they had written on their site, I felt like this was one of those "to good to be true" moments, I mean this was exactly what I have been looking for. I could work at my own pace, which sometimes was very slow because 2 weeks after starting school I was diagnosed with cancer, the school never made me feel like I was anything other than a Rockstar and I was doing exactly what I needed.
I'm not a rich person at all I live a very conservative life style and the fact that could do my courses in payments made everything stress free.
I love everything I have learned from the school they are just as in depth as going to a traditional class and the tutoring at TAOND is incomparable to anything, you are treat with love a respect, I couldn't have asked for a better team on my side.
I 100% recommend TAOND and I plan on taking the master course.

I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone on the TAOND staff. I will put a comment on the website as well, but I wanted to send a personal note as well. I've talked with you both on the phone as well as email and you have both been fantastic. Even though not in a classroom, I felt like the instructors were right there along with me throughout my classes.

As I mentioned to Christina I am now working at a private physiotherapy/massage/chiropractic clinic but I have found the skills I learned so valuable with the job I'm doing now. The anatomy module was so thorough that when I started this new venture in the Health Care system I already had a great grasp on various parts of the body. The module on Decontamination Protocols also proved to be very useful as my Clinic Manager really didn't have a grasp on how important keeping a clean and safe clinic is. So long story short, this course has taught me so much and I appreciate it.

Thank you

I am so grateful for TAOND! With my daughter needing full time care and being in and out of the hospital, I would never be able attend a conventional nail school with my demanding schedule, but with the TAOND curriculum I can work at my own pace while taking care of my girls. The program is just as good if not better than what many conventional schools offer nail techs.

"First I would like to thank TAOND for creating such a detail oriented course, that is easily available. The staff are super helpful and very positive. My Mentor Brittany was extremely fast at replying whenever I had Questions and always gave both positive and constructive feedback so I could get the most out of each section of the course. Since you can work at your own pace and go on at any time of day there is no scheduling to stick to. Having now completed the Acrylic Mini Course I am more confident in my skills and look forward to my future in the nail industry. Keep up the good work."

TAOND has been amazing for me! Being able to do it at my pace is brilliant for me and my family (five kids makes for busy life) plus working, Im able to study when I can, and finish as I can. The support I get, is amazing and what I love the most, is the information you get!! I've already taken a gel course in my home town, for three times what I paid for the full TAOND course and this, to me, feels like waaaaaaay more information!! Big thank you :)
