Back to Black (and blogging)

Well hello there!

Where have you been, I hear you ask.  I've been trying to find my blogging mojo, trying to study, trying to deal with some work/office issues as well as practicing my acrylic and gel applications. My practical assessments at college have started and my time internet time has been spent over at SalonGeek, getting tips on how to apply the perfect set of acrylics. Those of you who are nail or beauty technicians or have an interest in becoming one may find this site invaluable. By the way, those of you who are nail techs, why didn't you tell me how hard it is?? I had three practice clients who each had a manicure, massage, luxury treatment and a polish on Saturday and by 4pm I could have gone to sleep on the salon floor. I was that tired!

Even though I've been away, I've been taking pictures; but mainly of the enhancement work I've done so far. I can't post them here because they are too embarrassing, so I'll wait until next week, when I have to do some decent work for my assessments.

I'll show you what I'm wearing today:

 MUA's black shade and gold and white chains from Bundle Monster plate BM 12.

 I sat for about 20 minutes staring at these black nails, not knowing what to put on them.

I'm posing with one of my favourite oversized accessories at the moment. A 'gold' and black 'jewelled' bracelet. I think it's from H&M but I can't really remember.

Thanks for sticking with me during my absence. When I thought I might have lost a few readers, I seem to have gained some, so I'm really appreciative.

Take care folks ;)



  1. I would never stop reading your blog! It's too beautiful and fun! You're nails look great, as always :)

    1. Oh thank you! It's really nice to hear lovely words like that :)

  2. THAT tired? Great, thanks for the warning! Because I want to do a course too lol

    1. Mica, I think it was because I was trying to remember routines (there are lots) and because I had limited workspace I had to keep getting up and climbing around other students and their clients to get things like wax and oil! When it becomes second nature it won't be as tiring. I didn't eat that day either - I didn't manage my time properly and I didn't want my clients to wait!
      We were told to keep an hr per client but should have had an extra 15 mins for luxury treatments. Two of my ladies had two treatments no breaks for me. I enjoyed it though. The smiles on their faces made me happy. I'll miss the course when it's over!

  3. Ohh I love it. I'm a new follower to your blog and I have to say your nail art is always so beautiful and perfect. I'm really happy to see you posting again!
