I FINALLY have time to dedicate to becoming a certified nail technician!
About a year ago, I discovered a school in my area and have been in contact. At first, the school was only offering day classes, but I kept in touch and asked to be notified if night sessions or summer classes became available. I considered night classes during the school-year, but every time the opportunity arose, I was stressed enough with lesson planning and piles of grading; I didn’t want to add anything to my schedule. In addition, I was planning my wedding, and went away on my honeymoon for three weeks in the summer. So after much delay, I found myself with nothing pressing, so I registered.
The classes rotate so that one can complete the program (100 required hours) in four weeks. There are sessions dedicated to nail care, acrylics, gels and pedicures. I’ll be attending classes Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It’s an ambitious, full-time commitment, but I love nails so much, thinking about working on them for seven hours a day is exciting! The first half of the day will be lecture, the second half practice. Every Thursday there will be a test on the skills learned during the week.
I will summarize each day so you can follow my progress. Truly, you can become part of my “class” and learn what I learn. When I complete the course in mid-August, I’ll surely be inspired to bring you more techniques and nail designs!
