I DID IT!!!!

Hey y'all!  I am proud to announce that after 5 long months, I officially graduated from beauty school today.  I'm not quite an official nail technician yet but I finished school and will go take my state board exams soon. 

I really am proud of myself.  I worked hard and tried to learn everything I possibly could. I feel confident in my abilities and most importantly I love this job!  I really, truly love doing nails and I'm so happy to finally know what I want to be when I grow up.  ;)  If you would have asked me 10 years ago if I wanted to do nails for a living I probably would have laughed. 

I started this blog 2 years ago as a hobby not thinking it was just for fun but it really opened up a lot of doors for me.  It made me realize that I could use my creativity and artistic abilities in ways I had never really thought about before.  I have always loved art and anything crafty and creative so doing nails is really the perfect job for me.  It makes me HAPPY!!!! 

It was bittersweet leaving all of the new friends I have made at school but I can't wait to see what is waiting for me in my career.  I am optimistic about my future and what it holds for me and my family.  :)

I would really like to thank all of my readers for your encouragement and thanks for sticking with me the last few months when I wasn't able to post much due to school.  You guys rock my socks off!  :) 

With all of that being KNOW you're dying to see how I wore my nails for my big day.  I asked some of my polish friends what I should wear and they unanimously picked nail art.  I didn't have a whole lot of time to do anything elaborate so I chose to do a neon gradient with China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, Kleancolor Neon Pink and Neon Purple with a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust on top. 

Thanks again everybody!  Have a great weekend! XOXO
