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 🙂

Part 1: Nail Art Lesson!

Finally… a new module!!!! Advancing into NA1! These are my art works after 6 hours last Saturday… What’s missing is the zebra and leopard print ones which I’ve forgotten to take pictures of!

Omg and another assignment to complete for this module as well! Luckily it isn’t too difficult; just 10 tips with nail art 😀

I really liked how my checkered, cherries and ribbon design looked but I’m going to redo them for my assignment!

Oh… a demoralising thing happened the following morning! I bought 5 new Angel Pro gel polishes from my school and kept them in my bag when I got home. In the middle of the night, my bag dropped from the table (guess it was too heavy!) and one of my favourite pinks that I got broke…

Ah, I do remember my bag dropping during the night but I was too tired to care! I wish I did though, then I could possibly save that bottle by pouring the remains into another bottle. But it was too late in the morning when I found out! Only about 10% was left in the bottle, the rest got into the box in came with and smeared my other polishes too! >;:(

Guess I need to be careful next time :/ Another good reason to buy more polishes ^^

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 😦

Photobucket

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!
