nail Program Student


My experience at MKG school was a great experience. I have always wanted to pursue a career as a nail technician. This program has taught me clear techniques and has provided me with the professionalism that I need to pursue my career. I am appreciative of the program and of my instructor Danielle that helped me get to where I am today.
