My time at Artistic Nails and Beauty Academy has been quite a learning experience. I've met some nice people who were always willing to help me out when I had any questions. I never felt out of place or out of the loop with anything. From the Instructors down to the students, I always felt I had a friend. My experience at ANBA has been one to remember.

My time at ANAB has been a great learning experience and has been a great new start for me. All staff is very helpful, full of ideas and will help you with as much as they can. To me ANBA is a fun environment. On each holiday, they do something creative to celebrate, food, dress up or a competitive competition. It's a great school to come to if you're ready for a change on life and a kick start on being creative in your career.
