What have I been up to? + Lakstore update #1

Hi guys!

Long time no see, I know. School was far more demanding than I expected it to be. For those who do not know: last year I graduated and I got my bachelor's degree in event and project management. But I figured I wouldn't find a job that easily, so I decided to take the jump and enroll in a master's program for multilingual business communication. The last two semesters were preparing me for the master's I will be starting in September. The past few months have been exhausting and difficult and this experience was not at all stimulating my creativity. I had exams for almost 1,5 months, go figure haha! But now that is all over and I'm enjoying my well-deserved vacation!

BUT like all other students, I nééd to do a job during this vacation, and I was lucky enough to find one that combines my favourite things: nail polish, painting nails, fancy drinks and relaxation. I work at Lakstore in Antwerp, yay me!! Hehe. So, what is Lakstore exactly? It is a nail polish concept store where you can buy nail polish, get a mani or pedi and sip delicious drinks while chilling in the comfy lounge. Lakstore holds two brands: OPI and Faby. We all know OPI, but what is Faby? Faby is a high-quality Italian nail polish brand which is created by two brothers. It's collection holds 187 polishes (and keeps growing) and it is three-free and cruelty-free!

So, Lakstore. As for manis and pedis, there are 200 colours to choose from, and if you still can't find your perfect shade, you just buy the polish of your choice in the shopping area and they will paint your nails or toes with it. By the way, you can also get a Gelcolor mani of pedi!

As for now, I'm still learning how to give clients a perfect manicure and hopefully I will be able to do so pretty soon! Last Saturday, I practiced a nail art technique inspired by one of Pshiiit's tutorials. And this is the result.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out and so were my collegues. Woop woop! I took this photo with my iPhone so excusez-moi for the quality.
