“I found you while going to Cosmetology School 5 years ago. I am amazed with 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.”

"Best money I’ve spent ! She is a wealth of knowledge and extremely supportive professional there to answer questions long after you’ve finished the course. I have gotten so many referrals from this certificate from near and far. I would 1000000% recommend this. She does not do anything out of our scope of practice that’s easily verified by calling your state board. I am able to help people others turn away and it warms my heart. She is changing lives and I’m honored she’s willing to teach what she knows."

"You taught what I didn't learn in nail school 20 years go. They touched on the subjects but YOU made me completely understand them! You are always right there when I have had a question or a comment. You made ME want to do all that you do in your pedicure services because you made me understand WHY you do it. I get each and everything you taught and I appreciate you for the extended explanation or shall I say the extended learning. Now I have completely haply clients after they leave me. It's a great investment into your career and my client list has more than doubled."

"I am a licensed cosmetologist I learned basic nail care in school but did not learn foot care. My main concern in a pedicure service is to provide great foot care as well as nail care. It’s not all about the polish. This is where we are in the nail industry, a fast buck and a polish job. I’m all about the care of the feet and nails, because they will take us through life, The polish will fade. This is why I took your course. Your classes are more about proper footcare as well as the polish. Thank you for providing this educational course to obtain the knowledge from someone that has been in the business for many years and has provided real life situations for problem nails and feet. Thanks again."

“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!” Update 2023 I LOVE The Meticulous Manicurist Nail Tutorials! I’m in the UK, was one of Ms Halloway’s first clients, and my business has grown 833% since taking her course. Her hygiene protocols are absolutely on point, teaching is the most through, complete and comprehensive I’ve come across in 15 years of training, and business skills and marketing come with the knowledge. Just two words -do it!

I have been watching your videos since they were flipped on in class by my “nail instructor” back in 2019 when I took the licensing program. I saw that you were great at what you do and your teaching style is just as meticulous as your method. I would watch your videos thinking “why can’t my instructor instruct this way considering I am paying for this course with her?” But it is what it is. I love helping people and I saw that what you do with the advanced pedicures was right up my alley. I know the struggles of either being overweight or having health issues that prevent one from being able to care properly for their feet. It’s not just beauty for them, it can mean pain or relief. And so I knew I wanted to learn from you. When I found out that you offered a course that could help me get back on track and fill in whatever gaps the school failed in… I prayed on it, planned it and then the funds came available and so I jumped on this. So now I have to make it count as it was an investment and well worth it & hubby supported it. So now I am here & I am happy that you get to be my instructor.
