Have A Thriving 6-figure Business This Year And Beyond!


A highly sought-after 6-figure (yet burnout-free) nail technician...


A nail technician who's on the brink of sciatica, or worse...has a semi-blank appointment book?

I will be frank:

🎯 It’s not about having basic (bookish) nail care knowledge taught by schools.

🎯 It’s not about having a state board nail technician license.

🎯 It’s not about specializing only in nail art.

🎯 It’s not even about being certified with advanced education.





"More than met my expectations! Just graduated from school and my Instructor mentioned you and said she was taking your course! I was looking for examples and a better understanding of a GOOD pedicure and I got that and then some just wish I could have about a week in your salon learning from you!!!!!"

Terri Shaw - Nail Tech


 "I found you while going to Cosmetology School 5 years ago. I am amazed at all the training videos. My school only touched on the basics and your videos have added so much knowledge. The course exceeds my expectations. Our clientele is older and your course is spot on for their issues. I have to tell you that so far, (going on 71 in a few days) my favorite module was The Ergonomics Module". 

Gay Puckett- Cosmetologist


"Your course has met and exceeded my expectations, and although here in the UK any training we undertake has to be accredited by the professional bodies (we don't have state boards here), I was able to complete it and get insured by already having a pedicure certificate and using yours as continued professional development. I now have 23 new clients booked...and I can't wait to get them feeling comfortable and rebooked! Thank you for giving my business a serious lift!"

Denise Spragg -Nail Tech

The biggest misconception that most nail care technicians believe (that keeps them from positioning themselves as an expert nail problem solver) is this:

😭 "Basic manicures, artificial nail application, and fancy nail art are the ONLY procedures that they should focus on so they can have a steady client base." 😭

I can't blame nail technicians for believing this myth. It's what the nail schools have taught them all this time. So, it's what most of them want to specialize in.

Don't get me wrong. I respect the sheer talent that goes into nail art. In fact, the nail technicians in my salon are also capable of doing that.

But in the real world, only a tiny percentage of customers want long fancy-colored nails.

The staggering truth is, more people have uncomfortable toenail problems such as:

  • Blisters from runners toes
  • Impacted toenails
  • Ingrown(s) and pincer nails
  • Calloused feet
  • Cuticle skin
  • Nail Fungus

Many people have them, and they want to live a pain-free life so they can function normally.

But they are embarrassed or hesitant to entrust their nails to just any random nail technician.

They want a professional nail technician who:

👍 Knows how to handle these problematic toenails.

👍 Can provide utmost care and compassion.

👍 Can reverse their problem toenails with the least possible pain.

Which leads me to...

The 2nd biggest misconception that most nail care technicians believe:

😒 "Nail technicians can't do pedicure treatments on clients who have nail fungus, and ONLY medical nail techs or podologists can solve the patient's fungus problem." 😒

First of all, there is NO such thing as a medical nail tech. No state in the US recognizes the term medical nail technician. And so it baffles me when nail schools and other online courses imply that their programs equal medical education and that their graduates are qualified to give medical advice. 

A nail technician performs cosmetic services and should not mislead clients with terminologies that would insinuate you are giving medical services.

As a summary:

 👌 No, we should never label ourselves as "medical nail technician" who gives medical advice.

 👌 Yes, nail technicians are can perform pedicures on nails that have fungus and other bloodless nail procedures to resolve advanced toenail problems. (Clients don't need to go to a Podiatrist all the time)

So, don't limit yourselves to specializing ONLY in artificial nails and fancy nail art

From the get-go, be the one that solves a greater problem in the nail care market. 

Hello, I'm Lori Halloway!

The Global Meticulous Manicurist Nail Academy, 

proud salon owner, and dubbed as the  "healing hands"

by my loyal clients.

Lori Halloway Pedicure Expert

Yes, I am also the voice that you hear in my Youtube channel (the #1 nail training channel which now has over 500k subscribers): 

The Meticulous Manicurist Nail Tutorials

Lori Halloway Pedicure Expert.png

I am also the inventor of the US-patented hand rest for nails, The Ergo Lift, to combat and relieve repetitive use injuries that prevent nail technicians from doing their job.

I also developed my own line of ergonomic pedicure tools and nail polish that's free of harmful ingredients.

You see, nail care is not just a job for me. All of these achievements are the offspring of my passion for this profession.

You'd think that after performing over 30,000 pedicures, I'd be tired, decide to rest, and bask in the passive income that comes as a reward of my years of hard work.

But there's no stopping ME now, 'coz I'm on a greater mission, beyond myself.

I want you to CONFIDENTLY be the go-to expert nail technician in your community who provides a premium experience to clients, 

from the consultation all the way to the service delivery.

After performing over 30,000 pedicures in almost 3 decades, 

I know that  I AM THE EXPERT who can teach you best practices, both in achieving the best nail care service and handling your business.

  • 🤩 Even the experienced nail technicians would message me that they have learned a lot more in my Youtube channel than in their nail school. If I can help them level up their career, I've done my job.

Many of my followers say that they have learned a lot from my

Youtube tutorial videos. 

But really, I've barely scratched the surface.

There's more to this business than just performing nail care procedures.

Lori Halloway Pedicure Room.png

I want to shatter the culture of competition, all forms of drama, and all low-class behavior that drive clients away.

Instead, I want all nail technicians to always take the high road, have the best demeanor that attracts premium clients, and make them your most loyal patrons for years!

Really, knowing the best nail care procedure is just a fraction of the overall formula.

It is going to equip you with everything you need to know, from

👍 Marketing and positioning yourself as an expert.

My Origin Story:

I was very poor back in college. Good thing, I have always been an academic achiever, and a go-getter, and I paid for my own college tuition.

Needless to say, having my nails done was a luxury. I envy my classmates who could afford to have their nails done on a weekly basis. I had no choice but to do my nails myself.

Oh, I’m proud to say that I did it with excellence! My nails looked so good, so much so that I would get compliments, even from strangers.

One day, I ran into a woman at the mall who stopped me and asked where I got my fabulous nails done. I told her I did my own nails.  She was the one who encouraged me to go to nail school because I could make a lot more money doing nails (instead of being a bartender at Weber's which was my actual job at that time).

Boy, that moment was pivotal, and that’s an understatement! 

I finished my Associate’s degree. And at that time, I was already making more money as a nail technician compared to any starting salary of any profession. 

I remember, I walked out of my Business Math class, decided not to finish my Bachelor’s degree and just work.

To make the long (colorful and challenged-filled) story short, I saved enough money to build my first house in the first year of doing nails full time.

If I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT TOO---especially now that I’ve created my program which I could only wish I had before I began my career in the industry. 

What My Students Say About The Course

“In just a couple of short months and I am getting a reputation for helping people with problem feet..."

“Basic pedicure courses are a dime a dozen. But if you want to become a sought after problem feet pedicurist in your area, take The full Meticulous Manicurists course. It has helped me gain a great deal of knowledge to confidently change my clients lives. Short of a PHD, you won’t learn more than what is taught via Lori’s course.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What happens after I buy this course?

You will receive an email with your username, password, and instructions on how to login and begin your course.

I am an aspiring nail technician with zero education from any nail academy (both online or offline), will I learn even the most basic of pedicures?

Absolutely! You will learn a regular pedicure procedure and the training builds on that foundation to accommodate any client you meet.

 I already have years of experience as a nail technician. How will I benefit from this program?

This program will teach you all the skills and techniques you need to give specialized pedicures and expand your current pedicure menu to increase your yearly income. You will gain the expertise and confidence you need to grow a loyal returning client base.

Do I need to be a licensed nail technician to take this course?

In the USA, all nail technicians must be licensed prior to performing any procedure on a client. Therefore, you must complete your training with an accredited nail academy so you can be eligible to take the licensing test in your local state. *If you live outside the USA, you don’t need to be licensed prior to taking this online nail tech course, and straight away be eligible to perform manicure and pedicure to clients.

If you are a licensed cosmetologist, you are also licensed to do nail care. You can expand your service menu to offer your clients more options when they come to see you. Adding a pedicure appointment in a color processing time is a great way to increase your income.

Note: Always double-check the regulations that are set by your country or state prior to performing nail procedures.

How is the Global Meticulous Manicurist Course different from any other nail technician courses?

 First of all, my step by step program is the most complete nail technician course on the internet today. Second, the modules in this program contain wisdom from real-life lessons and real situations. The video demos are cases of my real customers in my thriving salon. I am a nail expert not just because I learned from books while I was in the nail school, but because I have done 30,000 real-life pedicures and counting.

Will you help me get my first client?

After you complete the course, I will add your information to my network map. When anyone asks me where to find a nail technician in their area I direct them to this map. People are looking for skilled, qualified, and certified nail technicians to meet their needs. They want to see someone who has been trained in all the techniques they see in my pedicure instructional videos. I can even make a post on my Facebook page of your accomplishment if you send me an email with your request.

How much time do I need to commit to this program?

You can complete the course at your own pace. That is one of the best aspects of online learning. You can reinforce your learning by reviewing courses and imprinting the easy-to-follow techniques and routines in your memory. The combined hours of this course is right around 21 hours. There is some additional time needed to complete a couple of homework assignments and the time to take the quizzes and tests is not included in the time. Some have completed it in a weekend, while others it takes more time. There is no rush. 

Will I receive a certificate of completion?  

In this nail technology course, you are required to submit your homework and pass the quiz for some modules before you can proceed to the next lesson. Yes, you will receive a course certificate when you successfully finish the course material (composed of 17 modules) and comply with all the requirements.

Is there a refund policy?  

Our students leave the highest praise about their experience and the course content. We have never had an unhappy student, and they willingly share their success stories. Even experienced nail technicians and foot care nurses say they learned more in my course than they have in their careers. A common statement is: the course has over-delivered on student expectations. I believe my course will give you the education you need to skyrocket your business, believe in the quality and performance, and can guarantee your satisfaction with the course content, the course content is proprietary and cannot be returned. There is no refund for any course purchases. By purchasing a course and course kits you agree that all purchases are final and no refunds will be processed.

Let's make this happen!

Love always,
