I absolutely love the beauty and fashion industries. I knew I didn’t particularly want to do hair (although I’ve dabbled with hair for years) and I had already done makeup (worked at a few counters, freelanced for years). The only thing left for me in the beauty industry was nails. I had done manis and pedis in college to earn extra money. So, years later, I have decided to enroll in the Mario Tricoci University nail tech program. Tricoci University is one of the best programs in the nation so I am sure that my education from here will take me far.
After researching the nail industry, I discovered that there is so much room for growth and expansion in the industry nationally and here in Chicago. I plan to turn the Chicago market into my playground. I have some REALLY unique ideas (read on in the blog — I may share some) and concepts that will begin after I am licensed. I am also psyched that Tricocci University is an OPI school (that means all OPI products!). I can’t wait to learn — and I can’t wait for you to read all about my adventures.
I currently live in Chicago and am working on a Masters Degree in Integrated Marketing Communications (finishing in 2010/2011). I am engaged and plan to marry next year. I also plan to launch my nail salon in 2011 — if I can make it through nail school.
