Preparation for Exam!

A little update: my manicure exam is next weekend!!!! I’m almost done with my homework and I’m pretty satisfied about it. Once I get it completed; I’ll do a post about it ^^

Oh and more pics of the manicure: http://varnishingrainbows.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/byshonamentalforpolish/ , taken from Ann’s blog! She does very awesome flower corsages and bouquets; take a look!

Anyway, about a week ago, I sought for help in nail models for the exam day and lovely Ann volunteered to be mine, yay! As usual, I practiced on french and red nails that is required for the exam during a self-practice session last Thursday!

Sigh, my light pink polish is still so streaky!!! 😦

Ann did something that made me squealed from my heart! She made me a personalised goodie bag from my blog banner and she filled it with lots of edible goodness! She is so kind and thoughtful, she was actually afraid that I might scold her for using my blog banner w/o my permission, silly!! 😀

And then she said let’s pose with the bag then I do not have to watermark them, lol!!!

Ann also told me she wanted China Glaze For Audrey to be the french tip with a red base and initially I find it unmatching! After doing the entire manicure, I realised its a good combination! Ann has good taste! Also, she even brought her own gold glitter striper for me to use 🙂

Yet Another Self-Study: Paddle Pop Nails!

Had another self-study session on Tuesday with Vicky as my nail model!

Photobucket

Her nails are so beautiful!! Long nail bed and nails 🙂 practiced polishing for my exam first; French and a red polish! French is still a disaster to me… should have made the tips thicker!

Afterwards, I removed it and did a brand new set of nail art for her! I forgot to bring alot of things yesterday so this nail art is lacking 😦

My classmates says this set looks like lollipop/paddle pop! The base is China Glaze Shooting Stars, with OPI Shorts Story and OPI Alpine Snow for the lollipop colours! I then embellished it with crystals! I could have done better by lining the colours with a silver glitter liner but my resources are very limited in school 😦

I’m so worried and nervous for my pedicure exam tomorrow, yikes! Hopefully I’m able to remember all the steps correctly and paint French well!

Self-study session: Slant Double French

Had self-study sessions last week and worked on Miao Xian!

I finally got OPI colours that is approved by the school for exams; what I’ve used is OPI Mod About You and OPI Big Apple Red. The pink was sooo streaky!!! I had to apply a thicker coat to cover the bald spots. But the problem is that it causes the entire nail to be too thick and I might have problems doing French later on 😦

Miao Xian also requested for this design and show me a photo from the net:

And here’s what I did for her! I forgot to take pics and she kindly sent me 😀 I used OPI Ogre The Top Blue, OPI What’s With The Cattitude and OPI Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees!
