This work week at Lakstore went by so fast! On Thursday I used Gelcolor for the very first time. Before Thursday I've never ever practiced with GelColor or another semi permanent nail polish, so I was pretty excited to give it a go. I swatched the Neons collection by OPI on a palette. We use these palettes so clients can 'try on' the colour before deciding which one they really want to go for. I also swatched all of our Faby gels on a palette and tried out our new Faby led lamp.
When that was done, I needed to work on the OPI nail polish palettes which will be at the nail polish counters at Planet Parfum. So far I have done 8 of each of the four different palettes, which means I have finished 10% haha. Yup, 32 down, only 288 to go! But I enjoy doing it. That way I can practice my painting and I can get to know the different nail polishes and their opacity, texture and application. Win-win it is!

Besides this, I also prepared a client's nails who wanted a Gelcolor manicure, removed some polish on toe nails, helped people in the shop with their purchase and served drinks. And I also did some swatching on the palettes, of course, haha! But I don't mind ;-). And before I went to work, I also did one of my mom's friends her nails for her birthday.

Saturday went by so quickly! I did a ton of different things. Again some general stuff like advising clients, helping them to pick a colour, serving drinks, cleaning up... But I also did some nail art! On clients! As my manicures aren't up to par just yet, Sara painted the client's nails and when she was done, I had to do the nail art. I explained which colour combinations would look nice, and which colours we had to avoid. My first clients were two girls and they picked our nail art of the month: the tiedye. The other client wanted a simple, clean, not too in-you-face leopard print. I felt so comfortable doing nail art on 'strangers', even though I mostly do my own nails. They were all so happy and pleased with the result and so was I! I couldn't resist snapping some photos.
After that I removed a client's nail polish on her toes and applied a new colour. This was my first time painting a client's toe nails, whoooo progress! Haha. But I really enjoy doing it, like for real, this is the best job I have ever had in my whole life. Seriously.
So that was it for my update of this week. Next week, I will try to get my update posted on Sunday, but it could be having a small delay as I am leaving for a well-deserved vacation Saturday night! Woop woop! But I have some posts scheduled, so I won't leave you hanging, haha. ;-)
