Nail Technology: Week 1

Hi everyone!  As most of you know, I recently started attending school for nail technology.  My first week was so much fun!  On my first day, I received my OPI Nail Tech Kit.  The kit is so large that it was a little overwhelming, but super exciting!

I spent my first week practicing filing nail shapes, applying silk wraps, and forming full nail acrylics.  The nail shaping was something I was definitely already familiar with, but it was a lot of fun to get to play around the shaping, since I always keep my own nails squared off.  The silk wraps were new to me though.  I really enjoyed doing them, and am looking forward to being able to repair nail cracks this way.  I was a little nervous about trying my hand at acrylics for the first time, but it came much more easily that I thought it might.

I am really looking forward to next week's lessons.  I am so happy to be in school for something I already love so much!  I'll keep you updated weekly!


Above is my first set of full nail acrylics.  


Of course, I had to add a little polish, so I applied two coats of OPI Cajun Shrimp and a light gradient with China Glaze Fairy Dust.


I went a little squoval with this set, and added Color Club The Sweet Life, and some random dots with China Glaze 2Nite and Cirque Colors Memento Mori.


I was curious how the acrylic would look with a negative space design, so I did a bubble gradient with Cirque Colors Memento Mori and Carpe Diem.


I did some sharper ovals and topped them with Zoya Cole and polka dotted with Cirque Colors Carpe Diem.


I was looking through the classroom polish supply, and the very last bottle on the shelf made me freak out a little bit ... the super holo version of OPI My Private Jet.  You know there was no way I couldn't use that one!  I paired it with these vampy edge points.

  9. Technology & HR-Leverage one for the other: "Technology and HR are enablers of business. Integration of the two would mean not only harmonious co-existence but also leveraging one for the other. Leveraging of technology for HR would mean digitizing the mundane HR activities and automating the back office and transactional activities related to recruitment, performance management, career planning, and succession planning, training and knowledge management. Leveraging HR for http://criminaljusticelaw.org/the-internet-is-for-all-and-ada-laws-help-to-strengthen-the-philosophy/ implies managing change associated with technology by way of communication, training, hiring, retraining, stakeholder analysis and conscious keeping. Thus they can play complementary roles."
