Is it any wonder that one of Delaware’s nickname is “The Diamond State”? With about 6 out of every hundred income earners a millionaire the title seems apt!

It’s relative affluence mean that many of its citizens have the disposable income for luxury treatments and pampering like nail art and manicures. Find out what it takes to become a nail tech in Delaware below.
Unlike many states you can become a nail tech via apprenticeship in DE. It does take longer though, 600 hours compared to 300 hours if you take your training in a school. Training consists of the usual mix of learning health and safety as it applies to the profession, some anatomy and theory, cosmetology laws, proper techniques for nail care protocols, use of nail tools, client relations, and so on.
After your training is complete you’ll need to prove your skills in written and practical tests in order to get your license. Licenses are renewed every two years and require only a renewal fee and no extra hours of continuing education. Of course there is nothing wrong with expanding your skill set by taking extra courses…
