Nail School Module 1 // Learning About the Nail Industry

by - Monday, June 27, 2016

This first week was just a refresher for me and it was pretty short (like this post!). I previously completed this module in full so I decided just to review the materials but not to re-take the test. I got perfect the first time so why try my luck, right? :)

We were asked to think about what drew us to the industry and to be honest the years I have been blogging make up a big part of it. I feel like there's a divide between the bloggers and nail techs though, and I'm really interested in learning about the skills and knowledge that techs bring to the field. I think that's the main reason I have right now for wanting to do this.

This week's module also talked a bit about nail competitions, and though I don't think my anxiety-prone self is the right fit for the tension involved in competing I think they're really interesting! The intricacies and work put into competition nails has always interested me and I adore when there are large sculpted pieces included. In a dream world I'd love to be able to get to a point where I can do work like that. It's good to have goals, right?

So nothing practical yet as I still have all the technical, anatomy and sanitation info to get through first, but it's a good start.

Checking in on my 5PP: This is the first module I have done this time around and it definitely didn't take me a full 8 hours, and that's okay. I also got my blog post (you're reading it!) done after I finished the work and I'm not feeling any desire to avoid or procrastinate just yet. So all in all I'd say I'm doing pretty good!
