It’s official: My name is Karen and I’m a YouTube addict.
I’ve spent more hours trailing the internet for info this weekend than the last few weeks put together – however there’s a really good reason for what seems like my multiple hours of procrastination gals. You see, back when I was 21 I spent a crazy amount of money training to become a nail technician, & for a short while I even had my own little nail bar in a salon. Since then I’ve always harboured a fascination for nails and nail art, and have occasionally indulged in keeping on top of my skills by enhancing the claws of friends and family members.
However, with almost £1k of nail kit sitting idol in my beauty room, I thought it was high time I started to get back into the swing of things. After searching online, I found a local refresher course for a couple of hundred pounds. As much as I’d love to indulge in topping up my skills by attending a day course, right now I’ve more pressing bills to spend my hard earned cash on. However YouTube has proved it’s virtual weight in goal as I stumbled across a full length refresher tutorial with the brand I originally trained with! *yippeee* I couldn’t believe my luck! As soon as I settled down to watch it everything came flooding back and before long I was unearthing my bottle of monomer, coloured acrylics and sculpting brushes! How fabulous 🙂 Hopefully within the next few weeks It’ll be an exciting little project I’ll be getting back into, a few practice runs and I know I’m good to go. That’s the great thing about training, it’s always something to dip back into when the notion rises.
