This year has been an epic year for me on the work front.
During the summer, I undertook some training with the premium nail brand Bio Sculpture and after hours and hours of practice and even some frustrations thrown in too I attended my assessment in August and passed my nail technicians training to become a nail technician specialising in the application of Bio Sculpture products.
It was a crazy summer training that I have to be honest I worried that I wasn’t going to ever be good enough to complete. However, the journey got even more exciting once I passed and I started to practice more not only with other colours but with other bio products too.
Since then I have developed a small and a perfect nailed bunch of regulars who have at times been my guinea pigs as I learnt new techniques of nail air and have tried new colours and I am pleased to say that my new self employment path with only ever move forward into the new year with hopefully a new nail and a new marketing strategy to grow my new nail business.
During my training this summer all Bio Sculpture qualified technicians were offered the opportunity to attend a celebration of it’s 20 years here in the UK in London and my bestie (Stacey) and I thought it would make a fantastic night out where we could celebrate with a brand that has supported me on this new phase of my life and we could celebrate my new journey and Stacey’s support at being such an epic hand model and guinea pig!
Stacey and I had planned on a leisurely train ride to London followed by a quick drink in the champaign bar in St Pancras followed by a wonder round covent garden while I popped into Benefit for my make-up to be done before heading to the hotel to get changed before the event.
What we actually got was nearly an hour delay getting on the train due to a fault further up the line followed by the most horrific taxi driver and then no browsing in covent garden as I was late for my appointment!
Thankfully from there on out things only improved. Time was still not on our side but we raced to the hotel and finally got our first drink of the night while getting dressed and doing our hair and then we met the lovely Hannah from Budding Smiles and Jenni from Chilling With Lucas in the hotel reception to walk to the venue.
The Brewery where the celebration was being held holds lots of memories for me as it was where Britmums Blogging conference was held for a number of years and it looked even more glamours with its glittery decorations.
On arrival we were handed bubbles and we got some time to mingle and chat. I was thrilled to finally get to meet Claire from head office that I had originally spoken with prior to starting my journey. I also got to catch up with my Educator from Weatherby, Helene who is such a fantastic lady and a super patient and informative teacher!
During the evening there was some amazing singing! – and great live music that got us all up dancing, there was laughter, reminiscing and a massive amount of uncoordinated dancing! but it was by far one of the most fantastic evenings out I have had in a very long time.
As far as celebrating goes I can with my hand on my heart say that Bio Sculpture does it with style and grace and I am super proud to part of the Bio Sculpture community being a technician.
I am looking forward to so much in my journey and now I am hangover free I can enjoy it even more!
Here’s to the next 20 years Bio Sculpture!
