Okay... what have I been up to this week since I haven't been blogging?!?
On Monday and Tuesday I attended Isis Beauty Academy for the start of my VTCT Nail Technology course. They have just moved to a new and improved premices and I was the very first student through the new doors! Awesome karma... and lovely people! The first day was focused on Health & Saftey etc and the Manicure, and I was lucky enough to be one to one with the course trainer which was FAB. The second day was demo and practice of tips, acrylic and fibreglass/silk nails. I must say I am not a huge fan of the acrylic at all, but fibreglass over tips or just the natural nail is stunning and so much kinder to nails! This time we had another student join the party which was great fun for practice purposes (she already has a manicure qualification, hence not being on the first day's training) and I must say my first sets were pretty damn good, I was most pleased. Unfortunately I didn't get pics which was stupid! Haha!
Above is the structure of the course and my studying materials; Days 3 and 4 are coming up this Monday and Tuesday, sooo looking forward to these two days learning all about gels and of course the nail art, which is familiar territory for me. I will then have all the case studies, homework, assessments and exams to complete over the coming two or three months before I will be fully qualified! Exciting stuff! Below is my uniform, sporting my cute lil badges heehee :)
Here are a couple of pictures of the training room I was in, we will be in the dedicated nail room this coming week so will be sure to get some more snaps! The light and atmosphere in this place is just lovely, such a nice environment to be trained or have a treatment in!
The rest of the week I was working or poorly... and it was my dad's birthday, I had to collect, return and re-collect my car from the workshop and also took my other half in to have the pin removed from his broken hand so I've been pretty busy! I did manage to take delivery of and play with my awesome nail technician case from Roo Beauty though :) Just the right size for all my kit and heaps cute!
Finally, this weekend I have been studying and making the most of time with my man before he heads off to China on business in a few days... Next week the busy schedule and studying continues, but I hope to participate in The Crumpets 33DC during the week and then do a catch-up post on goings on again on the Sunday. Boy I've missed painting my nails!!... But right now I have a mixture of my fellow student's acrylic, silk and fibreglass practice nails on and need to leave them as they are for infills and removal tomorrow lol, had to cut down my nice natural nails for the process (boohoo), so nubbs will be the order of my posts for the next couple of weeks!
