Tonight I finally got round to working on a model again 🙂
As it is also not very long till assessment nights I wanted to make a concerted effort in completing a set of nails – with tips – in our allocated assessment time… 2 hours! Yep no messing about here.
Now, I’ll be completely honest before I go into how the evening went, I’ve been naughty! Since my client before Christmas who came into College to have her nails done, I have not picked up my brush since!!! Yes, as I said, naughty I know, so I had even more to prove to myself this evening that I could do it.
On top of that little revelation I was also desperate to try out the Glitter acrylics that came within my EZ Flow Acrylic kit, so decided tonight was the night for that too. 🙂
I had my faithful model back after her bout of Flu, so we had lots to catch up on – except tonight was not the night for talking. As much as I would have loved a catch up & we got a few of the important bits in during the consultation, it ended up being the quietest night so far during my time at College – not just for me either.
So the big question….How long did it take…. 2 hours & 20 mins!!! I am so happy! OK so not in the time limit I wanted to make, I had some minor issues in that my client does not have a natural C-Curve so quite a bit of time was spent on Tip Blending, all good practice though and she is now walking about in what is quite literally Couture tips!
Here is the end result
Although Slightly blurry I have a side view too just to show you my apex. For anyone unknowing to that term, its the slight curve in the nail shape.
I am so so pleased with these nails, there are smooth, round and sooooo shiny all achieved from files only, no UV Gel top coat required thank you very much! 🙂
The Glitter turned out amazing too, just a subtle hint but enough if you want a slight change from the normal white tip. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to use the other colours in my set and get the chance to show you all.
Well that’s it for this week, Week 16 – Exams!!
