Becoming a nail technician has been a great challenge since day one, but also a big accomplishment. It took a lot of courage to take the plunge and enroll at college shortly after giving birth, to finally pursue my passion and study for it day and night. It also took a lot of work converting one of the bedrooms into the nail salon and sorting out all the bits and bobs to starting my little business.
I am grateful for how all of it has played out so far and feel quite lucky to have met such amazing people and gain loyal clients in a very short time, who always like to test my creative skills. Every new design I create contributes to my personal progress and pushes me to become better at what I do in order to master new techniques. It’s a constant learning process, and when it comes to nail art there will always be something new waiting for me to try it next!
Here’s my then & now evolution, from the first few weeks at college and studying for exams late at night, while trying not to wake the baby up, to setting up the room and practising manicures and pedicures on my poor husband, to practical sessions at college and a few of the manicures I did last year compared to the ones from this year.
I hope this journey never ends!
