Purples Turn?

Hey guys~! I am really sorry about not posting as much, this course (as much as I love it) really takes it out of me and the sun is gone before I have time to take photos, that's if I'm wearing polish at all.

Yesterday I discovered you cannot wear polish and remove your clients without ruining yours successfully lol.

Things I learnt yesterday:
- Hand and Arm massage (boy does this feel good!)
- Warts, Verrucae and Vulgaris (can't work on clients with them)

Things I learnt today:
- The girls in my class are amazed at how often I changed my nails
- How to buff correctly
- How to file
- How to do a full manicure, massage and exfoliation too :D

Oh today I got a manicure done :D It was really nice, Paige done a great job! Even removed 85% of my yellow stains! Plus I had a huge tear on my thumb this morning and she was able to file that down and fix it right up.

The girls asked that I bring some polish in tomorrow. They loved the colours that I had been wearing; Purple Panic, Mesmerize and Peppermint Patti. Little do they know how many I have... lol.

OMG! Our first field trip will be.... to a BEAUTY SUPPLY STORE!! They have train cases, everything you could possibly ever need for nail art! Glitter, hearts, beads, balls, fruit slices. I am in heaven guys. Heaven.

Yesterday on my lunch break, my boyfriend and I walked into Mac's counter to see if Peppermint Patti had come in yet. Mac was suppose to ring me when it came in. Well, I found it there and plenty of them. Boyfriend thought I was crazy getting all excited shaking my hands around trying to contain my excitement lol, but moral of the story; don't rely on Mac to ring you.

The lovelies I had waiting for me when I came home:
Color Club Sexy Siren
Color Club Electronica
Claire's Meg Peg
Claire's Yei
OPI The Violetter The Better

I just checked and 8ty8 only sent half of my order... What the hell?

    Wow love all the colors! Specially Rihana, too bad I can't order them XD How did Paige remove your yellow stains? I can't wait to know more about the course! =)

  5. I am currently trying different products to remove the yellow stains, with no luck!

    What was used that removed 85% of yours???

  6. 1- i'm thoroughly enjoying your updates from school!

    2-those are some great purples!!

    3- yes what in good heavens removed 85% of your yellow. you should have shown us a before and after ;) or what about repairing the rip in your nail?

    4- that's one of the first things i learned about manicurists/nail artists.. they can't wear nail polish because they are constantly doing and correcting the client's polish lol.. (i used to always check looking for polish recommendations) but my nail tech always has her toe polish on with open toe shoes to show them off no matter the weather!

  7. Your blog is fantastic to read! I love all the photos, and your nails are so pretty! It's also nice to hear your up dates on school.

  8. Glad you are learning so much! Enjoy everything. Your nails are so beautiful. Those are some gorgeous shades of purple. I have to check and see whick ones I need to buy. You'll have to share your knowledge with us.

  9. Wow, 85% of the stains gone? That's a really good job. I have cravings for two of these polishes; LOL and Black Cherry Chutney.

  10. I think it's great you enjoy your school so much. My mom worked at a salon doing manicures all day, and she hated it. Hope you have better luck!

    Are you allowed to wear thoes little clear, doctor rubber gloves when working with polish remover? I did it when I was cleaning out a few bottles with acetone and it kept my nails looking perfect. Not sure if they would allow it but do you think it may be worth a shot to at least ask?

  12. Oohh Is Zoya's Lael anything like MAC's Dark Angel (if you've tried it of course :D). I'm thinking it may be a bit more on the brown side than this colour. I am loving that OPI Amethyst color...must buy!


Thank-you for leaving a comment, I read every one! :)
