As a complete beginner with no experience or knowledge of nails, I gained a lot from Tori’s 1-on-1 custom classes. She taught me the basics of the manicure as well as the fundamentals of Japanese nail art and application techniques. She was so patient with me and I felt comfortable making mistakes and learning from her. I had an amazing experience and learnt so much in 4 weeks! Thank you Tori, my time with you has been invaluable.

Hi Toriiiiii, just wanted to sit down and actually write you a personal thank you. These past 5.. 6.. 7? weeks have been enjoyable beyond belief. I thought this would just be a class where I go in and learn then instantly get out. The assumption that it was just another course made me a bit anxious. But being taught by someone as patient as you, as well as alongside someone as sweet as Fran, I have a new found love for this art - purely based off its community.

Even Mila makes it fun with her stories and cheerfulness~ so thank you for making me want to wake up every Monday, thank you for making this fun and an immense thank you for being a great teacher into Japanese gel, it really is your calling 😀

Hi Tori, hope you’re well! Just wanted to say thank you again for the amazing class last week, I thoroughly enjoyed and felt like I understood beyond theoretical concepts despite the density of the syllabus.

Really appreciated the way you went beyond a typical application and theory class, using innovative techniques to really drive the delivery and making sure that I was able to demonstrate what was taught. It was also great that you really tailor the session to build on a person’s existing skills as well as their learning styles, making your tips and techniques immediately applicable. I look forward to seeing more from you and your team, wishing you all the best :)

Both the content of the course and the delivery by Tori were excellent, and I would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in learning the foundations of e-file manicure and Japanese gel.I had no prior experience using an e-file before I begun this class, but Tori was patient with me and provided lots of tips and advice to improve my technique.

It is clear that she adapts her style and guidance based on the student’s needs, so that you get the best possible result. She also takes time to answer questions, even when they are about different topics to what she is teaching that day, and provides anecdotes and examples from her years of experience to help you understand difficult concepts.Thanks Tori for a great 5 weeks with you!

Annnnnd we are done!

Thank you Tori @uptotori @beeladynails.and.goods for your guidance (and patience!) while teaching me the importance of nail health, foundation and structure of Japanese gel!!


Learned from Tori a year ago when I transitioned from using nail polish to Japanese nail gels. I love how everything turned out, and I can feel my nails getting healthier and my nail beds becoming stronger. I can't wait to join further learning with Tori. She's absolutely amazing!

Teacher Tori is very dedicated and patient. After finishing the lessons, she is always willing to answer questions. She can help troubleshoot just by looking at a picture. If you want to pursue a career in nail art, you must come to Beeladynails to learn. ❤️❤️❤️
