It has been too long!

Hello everyone! It simply has been too long! After healing from my surgery, I attended and graduated at the top of my class from nail school. I went in and took my state-board test, and I am happy to say that I am a licensed nail technician in the state of Massachusetts. I have been busy working in my new salon, learning so much about the nail industry! Now, just because I'm working doesn't mean I have stopped painting my own nails!
I have been lacking posting on here, but I have been keeping my pinterest. account up to date, and my instagram account updated daily (not all nails, fair warning!)
 I wanted to post some of the nail designs I have been making and posting on these sites, shall we?

 On this look I did a gradient yellow to green, and then stamped over it with black cracked design.

 for this look, I used neon colors as the base, and then stamped on a water marble like design.
I was playing neons again, and wanted to work on my freehand designs.

 On this look, I used two different blues and black to do more freehand designs.

I used a bright orange as a base on this look. Then I added blue tape triangles, and then put neon triangle nail studs inside the blue to make this look really pop!

For this look, I used pastel colors as the base. I then used tape to make the designs with black to add some color blocking. I also put glitter on the pastel colors before adding the black.

 Finally, my current nail look. Blue gradient back ground, with small glitters. Then stamped over it are mermaid fin aka fish scale design in gold!

I've been busy!

 Oh my, it has been a while since I have updated my blog. I have a good excuse (I swear!) So last year I kept getting sick. I ended up seeing a ENT (ears, nose and throat doctor) and found out I had about 5 marble sized nasal polyps blocking my nasal passages.
 Because of them, I had chronic sinus pressure, headaches, post nasal drip, laryngitis, and swollen glands. I ended up going in for surgery on December 31st, and had the beginning of January to recover.
 I also attended nail school mid-January into early February. In Massachusetts, you are required to take a 100 hr course, and be able to pass your state board exam. I finished at the top of my class, and as of March 2nd I am a state certified manicurist.
 I currently have two part time jobs, one in retail and one at a nail bar. So please excuse my absence for  I have been very busy. I can tell you I do a lot of quick uploads and photos on My istamgram page . Don't mind the other photos of dogs and food of course.
 Hopefully things will settle down and I will have more free time to update the blog more often.
