Week 17: Preparing to Be a Licensed Nail Technician

This week was fun. On Monday I finished up a lot of my required manicure services — I’ve completed almost all of them. While I was in class, we were informed that there was a nail salon owner who was about to speak, so I went to the senior floor to listen. Her salon is so beautiful and so elegant; I really like it. She was recruiting nail technicians who are about to graduate, so I will be sending her my resume very soon. As a nail technician, you should have a professional resume to take with you when you job search at different salons so they can see your accomplishments.

On Tuesday, I completed more manicure services, and because it was Valentine's Day I did love-themed nails. I even put 3D hearts on my own nails. On Thursday I completed more manicure services.  I definitely will have completed all my manicure services by next week. Then I'll be moving on to the rest of my required services and taking my State Board exams. I hope I pass them and don't have to keep retaking them. I would go crazy stressing myself out! I can't wait to start doing nails in a salon and creating all kinds of nail designs and nail art.

Thank you to everybody who reads my blog each week — I hope it helps your journey in becoming a beauty professional, or if you just like to read about my experiences, thank you so much. I'll see you in Week 18!
