Nail School - Day 21

I've been super busy lately, which is why these posts are so late! Yesterday we did our first "state board hands." A state board hand is a fake hand that you prepare as you would at the state board (which is the liscensure test).  On these hands you do all the nails differently. On three nails you do a tip application, you do an acrylic overlay with white tips on one nail, silk wraps on another nail, fiberglass wraps on another, and finally an acrylic with a form on the last. I enjoy doing them because it's good preparation. I tried to do timed hands and get faster at things like white acrylic smile lines. Anyways, boring boring boring. Same old, same old. Oh well, at least it's fun!
