Week Nine and Ten: Spa Manis, Nail Art, and More

With a new schedule, I’ve been able to meet more people at school and I’ve even made new friends. So now I have more hands to practice on!

<p>Color blocking has quickly become my go-to for classmates.</p>

Week nine was dedicated to more manicures. While I still need to gain confidence with nipping, I can file, buff, and polish with ease. Okay, I lie. I do get a bit nervous but a couple of deep breaths make all the difference. This time around, I even got to work on nail art.

<p>This is was the first set of nail art I did on a classmate after a manicure.</p>

During week ten, I got an introductory demo to spa manicures and I even got to practice.

<p>My first spa manicure was topped with a bright yellow polish change.&nbsp;</p>

Luckily my partner is a very patient guy and he sat still during the hour-and-a-half manicure. In the end, I was very happy with the result- smooth, hydrated, happy hands.

<p>Nail enhancements created with CND Brisa Gel.&nbsp;</p>

That week I also got to practice gel enhancements. While working with that medium is something I’ve yet to figure out, I have to give credit to Holly Schippers and her tips on building a great smile line. While my enhancement might be wonky, I was really happy with my whites.
