Hi everyone,

 

Since the beginning of this year, I have started a Nail Technology course in my local college and last week I finally finished! I'm just awaiting my certificates and then I'll be officially a qualified nail technician!

 

The first lesson was a bit scary because I didn't know much about acrylic or gel systems but luckily we were starting slowly and learning how to prepare the nail, glue the tip, cut it and blend it. We were practicing on those hand trainers that look a bit weird but it did help a lot to have moveable hand and fingers. It wasn't so bad so I shook off a little bit of the nervousness. There were about 12 other girls (and ladies) in my class so it was a bit like a girls only evening ;)

 

In the next lesson we were shown how to apply acrylic over the tip and nail. Guys that smell! For some time I really hated the smell of the evaporating liquid because when multiplied by 13 it can be very overpowering. I got used to it but in the future I will be working with the odourless version. I would get to learn gel, fibreglass and silk systems in the following weeks and then it was just practice before bringing in our first clients *cough* victims. These were my first ever gel (1st pic) and acrylic nails...

 

It all started with 'nail school'... Part 1

I know they are not perfect but it got better and better with practice :) During the course we also had to submit numerous written assignments and sit tests so the studying and writing papers consumed a lot of my free time that I usually dedicate to blogging. That's why launch of Lucy's Stash PRO has been delayed a bit. 

 

Stay tuned for the part 2 where I'll show you my supplies ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

 

 

Hi everyone,

 

Welcome to my brand new blog! As of now, I have finished my Manicure and Nail Technology courses and awaiting my certificates so yay, I finally got qualified!

 

I have been contemplating over the idea of setting up a second blog for a long time and I finally did it!

Lucy's Stash PRO will feature anything to do with professional products including gel polish, acrylic and gel systems. I realised that many readers of Lucy's Stash are interested only in nail polish and nail art and wouldn't want to see for example gel polishes or nail art with acrylic powders so I will keep the two blogs separate. I will still share social media accounts so I will post updates from both blogs on them but it will be up to you to choose which posts you'll want to click on and read.

 

I also wanted a place where I can share nails I did on other people/clients. I won't be posting daily but I will still try to post at least every week depending on how much material I will have and of course I plan to do tutorials too!

 

I guess that's it for now and in the next post I will finally share what's been going on in my 'Nail School'.

 

Have a lovely day! x
