About Us

Master Nail Academy was founded by Annamaria Farkas, the CEO of Crystal Nails UK. Our Beauty Academy has been established for over 11 years under the Crystal Nails umbrella and specialises in Nail Courses.


Our Nail Academy is passionate about training and providing ongoing support to help our students enter or thrive in the beauty industry. We understand that our students need fast track, high quality but low cost, training, with the flexibility to fit around their busy work and home lives – so that’s exactly what we provide.


We offer a range of specialist nail courses for individuals who want to gain an accredited qualification to improve their skills or take the next step towards starting their own business. We also cater for nail technicians who want to extend the range of services they offer to their clients.


We are totally flexible, with very small class sizes (from 2 to a maximum of 10 students) and will work with you to provide the ideal package suited to both your needs and your budget. Whether you want a one-to-one course at a location of your choice, or a specific training package organised for your team or a group of friends, we can deliver it.

Unlimited Support

Our commitment to you, our students, is ongoing. We offer free, unlimited support and advice from our teachers after you qualify, so whatever your question, help is always available. We also have a coaching and mentoring service should you want that extra push to ensure you achieve your goals.


All our lecturers are fully qualified nail technicians/beauty therapists with recognised teaching qualifications. They have numerous years of industry experience and are renowned experts in their fields. Our Educators have won numerous awards in Professional Beauty Competitions including awards for training and excellence. Whilst training you to the highest standard, they will also share with you their invaluable business knowledge, both during your course and beyond.

Our Foundation courses require homework, case studies and practical assessments before we award our Certificates & Diplomas. We are accredited by ABT “Associated BeautyTherapist” & VTCT, meaning our certificates are recognized and insurable anywhere in the UK.

Over the years we have provided the opportunity for hundreds of young people and adults to obtain the qualifications, skills required and the confidence to embark on a lifetime career in beauty.

We work closely with leading employers to ensure our curriculum meets the skills and recruitment needs of the industry. Once qualified, students are supported into higher education or employment through our connections with employers in the industry.
