Yes, I do have to admit I was a nail tech/manicurist/pedicurist/esthetician before my nursing career. Such a typical job a Vietnamese gal will start out with. I was somewhat “forced” into this field as my mom and pops owned one. I am not ashamed of it and it was enjoyable while it was a part of my life. It is a type of art you can get creative with. It definitely help me to get where I am now. Feels good to know how to beautify yourself! My toes and nails has been neglected. Finally I got around to giving them some loving and putting colors on these babies. Something about coloring my nails makes me feel girly. Doesn’t it? or is it just me?
