Week 11: Tests and High Scores

by Tiffany Williams | January 9, 2017 | Bookmark +

This week was a short week and it was test week. On Tuesday, we had two written exams, one on manicures and one on pedicures. I had a good feeling taking the tests – it felt easy. When I'm reading my assigned chapter in my Milady's textbook, I make sure I fully understand each chapter. It helps get all the information to stay in your brain and that helps when it's test time.

After we finished, I started to set up for a pedicure. I cleaned and disinfected the basin, filled the basin with water, and applied the foot soak to the water. Then I started to perform my pedicure. I had 30 minutes to do a basic pedicure and I finished in 30 minutes. Afterward, I cleaned and disinfected the basin and my implements.

On Thursday, we had our practicals. I did my manicure practical and my pedicure practical. Afterward, I got my pedicure done by one of my classmates. Then my instructor gave us back our results from our written test. I got a 94% on my manicure and a 92% on my pedicure! I feel so accomplished and so happy about my scores! I find out my results from my practicals next week. Also, next week we start a new unit, which is my last unit, and then I go to the senior floor. Since it's going by so fast, I started taking mock state board tests. I can remember enrolling in beauty school like it was yesterday and now I'm two months away from graduating.

The unit we are about to start is what I have been waiting for: monomer, polymer, UV gel, and my favorite – nail art. I can't wait to get more creative with nail art and different themes. Thank you for reading my blog every week. I truly appreciate it! I'll see you in Week 12!
