Catching Up With April

This week has flown by!

Monday was orientation, which just means we went over the huge handbook FULL of rules.

Tuesday and Wednesday was spent on introductions and settling in. I had my first test later that week so I got a jumpstart on bookwork.

Thursday I aced my manicure and pedicure tests so I got to give my instructor and the barbers all manicures.

Friday and Saturday I studied hard on acrylics and was able to complete some on my left hand. It took me about three hours but I think they are pretty good.

School is going so fast. I've been coming in early and staying late just to get it all in!

Another fast week! I spent all week practicing blending tips. Managed to burn my nails really bad but thankfully Wednesday was spa day so my nails got a break. Once a month the clinic is closed to the public and students get half priced and free services. I was slammed with manicures and pedicures but got a moment to get my eyebrows done and had an unfortunate haircut. :(

Alex has been riding the bus to school with me and he loves it. Makes it easier on me and we have fun watching the river.

I've been practicing nail art since it’s what everyone wants and it’s the one thing I can't do. So far I can do cheetah. Ha.
