Nail specialty includes the application and removal of sculptured or artificial nails.) A "Nail Specialty Trainee" registration is a one year license with an option for one renewal. The Nail Specialty Trainee must work under the supervision of a licensed Nail Specialist and be employed by a licensed Appearance Enhancement Business. There is no fee for this registration. After the year traineeship, the trainee can upgrade to a Nail Specialty license by completing a 26 hour course of instruction and passing both the written and practical exam.
