Officially in a Salon

It’s been ages since I’ve dedicated time here, sorry for that.  But since my last post I’ve since graduated, passed my State Board tests with high scores and received my State of Nevada Nail Technologist License.  YAY for me!!!

I was officially hired in a salon last Friday.  I’m so excited for this because it’s extremely hard to get a job without a few years of experience.  I’m going in today to clean up MY station and get a supply list of what I need.  The owner seems very excited for me to come on board.  I want to work, I want to build clientele and want to stay busy doing nails. 

I got bored with the pink shatter polish so I changed it up.  I LOVE this OPI Yodel on my cell.  It’s a brilliant teal that reminds me of peacock feathers. 

OPI’s new shatter for Breast Cancer Awareness is super cute.  I wish I hadn’t used silver as the base, I think a pale pink would’ve made the nails pop!

it’s been a while

I’ve been so busy enjoying summer and going to school that I’ve totally neglected my blog.  I’ve learned a lot more about gels, acrylics and nail art since I started this blog.  School is hit or miss, some days I want to scream at the day students for leaving a mess for my class and other times I can’t wait to get to school to see my classmates. 

My collection of gels has expanded: Gelish, INK and now LeChat Perfect Match.  The LeChat uv brand is pretty sweet-two bottles come in the kit, one is gel and the other is the original type of polish but it’s matching (hence the name Perfect Match).  I was spoiled by one of my guys with an over sized uv lamp that fits both hands or both feet at once.  I love that it has a built in fan and 2, 3 and 4 minute timer.  Makes it so much easier not having to use the stopwatch on my iPhone. 

I’m going to try to bring my macbook to class a few times during the week to blog from school and post more photos.  I can’t wait to start doing Halloween nail art.  I’ve been searching Google for some cool ideas I can put my own spin on. 

So far I think this is my most favorite gel manicure I’ve done since I started school.  This is my friend and those are her natural nails with pink and purple french twist design.  She absolutely loved her manicure!! 

6 bottles of INK gel polish, I’m sure all colors will be going on my classmates nails and toes in class tomorrow night.
