Well I survived the first week of school! What a relief. I have been able to get up at 6am and still function to my surprise. The first couple of days was basic familiarizing us with the program. . . .letting us know of additional fees that needed paid (bleh) and we got our VERY expensive kit & books which frankly didn't look like $600 worth of stuff. lol. I did get nice high quality tools and materials no product really so I'll have to start aquiring inventory as I go. Luckily I get everything at wholesale since I am a "beauty professional" (in training).
Today was the first day of "hands on" stuff as well as a couple of tests on 2 chapters of our book. I passed both tests with 100% which I think I may have been one of the only ones in class who did. I was pretty pumped. We learned the 5 different shapes of nails and had to file tips to those 5 shapes then we worked on NAIL ART! The brushes were horridly well used and in terrible condition so I am going to invest in some nice detail brushes along with a stripping brush that actually works. My art was well. . .for my first time Its not too terrible but there is plenty of room for improvement. It's a starting point. I'm excited and liking the program. There is only 6 of us in class so that's great we get a lot of the instructors time.
Here are my first attempts at "nail art". . .
