Student reviews

I trained on the e-file course! Highly recommend. You are such a friendly, welcoming & knowledgeable person. I learned so much in one day and have used my e-file since, what a massive difference it makes & building confidence each time.


I trained with GTN Academy back at the start of February 2022 and although the course is only a day for gel polish manicure and a half day for BIAB I left feeling super confident that I knew exactly what I needed to start up on my own business. I was given amazing tips on how to get clientele, what equipment to get and cost saving ways for a beginner. From the clients I have had come to me since then their feedback has been great about the experience and the longevity of their nails. Maria keeps in touch and checks in and has provided some motivating feedback which has meant the world. Couldn’t recommend GTN Academy enough so if you’re thinking of starting, then this is the gal to go with!

Just want to thank you soooo much for your time this weekend, honestly learnt SO much! You’ve built my confidence & knowledge so so much, couldn’t fault the courses or your way of teaching, like thanks for adapting to each of us & how we learn! So chuffed I picked get tipsy nails academy to gain a nail qualification! Thank you again really enjoyed it.

10/10 for education Maria! She is patient and encouraging to help her students pursue their dreams. 100% supportive- and no question is a silly question.

Thank you so much for your time Sunday’s and Monday. I really enjoyed your course and your style of training etc was fantastic! Was a great two days!







I did both the gel polish manicure and builder gel workshop with Maria, it was a small class size which was great to keep us all right. I felt supported and comfortable and learned so so much, Maria has answered questions after the course with no problems which has been a great help. Such a knowledgeable and lovely gal, I would recommend to everyone interested in learning nails.


@ds_xo - I’ve completed the gel polish manicure course and I had a 121 lesson with Maria where we covered builder gel application and some nail art. Both courses/days were super educational and fun. Maria shared all of her amazing knowledge, tips and tricks and detailed course materials that you take away at the end to keep! Since I’ve competed the courses, I’ve gone to build a client base of my own and really enjoying my journey that wouldn’t have been possible without my courses with Maria.


I attended both courses for gel polish and builder, as a total novice I was really nervous, Maria put me at ease and was really patient and helpful.

I learned so much about nail anatomy and different products and tools.

Highly recommend Maria for any training courses, after help is always available and plenty of advice available afterwards, Thank you Maria for helping me start my nail business.

I recently completed both the gel polish manicure course and the builder gel masterclass at the get tipsy nail academy. Maria is a fantastic teacher, so knowledgeable and talented and funny. I left both courses feeling ready and confident to start practicing straight away and has been there to answer my questions that I had afterwards too. I honestly couldn’t recommend her enough to train with!!



Just wanted to say such a big thank you Maria for my beginners gel training course! As a complete beginner with no experience I was a little nervous beforehand but I was made to feel so at ease and comfortable. Looking for a new career after having a baby with another one on the way you’ve given me all the skills and confidence in myself to start this new journey and I’m so thankful. I’d recommend anyone looking to start fresh or even just to come to you! Thank you again.
