Week 17 and 18: Focusing on Spa Manicures

by Sigourney Nuñez | October 21, 2015

I officially completed my pre-app requirements and paid for my State Board exam! I should be getting my official test date in the next few weeks. Since the last couple of weeks was spent working my butt off to earn points, these two weeks were spent slowing things down to really focus on proper execution of a spa manicure.
