My small but important milestone...achieved!

Hey guys!  Ok so I am going to try something a little different on the blog today..a little musing, if you will.  For a while now I have been what actually feels like fighting a few demons of mine, anxiety being the main culprit for what feels like a lifetime.  I wont bore you all with details because half the time  I cant make sense of it all myself.

One thing has always remained steadfast in my head though...other than the love of my beautiful family its my love of nails!  I have wanted to do this for a living for ages but have lacked the confidence to do it.  Acrylic nails have been my Nemesis  for many years and I gave up on even doing that side of it because I just knew I wasn't good enough.  So I have restarted college and actually have completed a full set of acrylics and fixing one pretty messed up nail!
My first full set of clear acrylic nails...finished off with some bling!

From the top, the mashed up nail....pic 2 shows the acrylic overlay I did and the rest is piccies of my hand painted design!

Now whilst I know I have a long way to go before the critic in me will be satisfied I am especially proud of the mashed up nail I managed to save (this is a natural nail btw).  I thought I would share with you guys my efforts and let you all see the sun is shining a little back in Mimi land.....

I hope its shining for you guys to  Thank you all so much for you kind words of support to me, each and everyone has really warmed my heart xxxx


  1. Bravo to you for pursuing your heart's desires and lifelong dreams! I know what you mean about acrylics.

  2. Good for you, I wish I had the confidence to go do something I really wanted to do. Good luck with the rest of your course :D

  3. You've done a great job! The repair on the broken nail is so neat and tidy. Do you practise on your own nails or do you have willing helpers? x x
