I just *gulp* took a really big step.

I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a nail salon for my mom to run so that she can be a lady boss and relax instead of working hard with my dad in their canteen stall. As an only child, I can’t really support them and myself well on my current salary. I don’t intend to quit my job – just get a salon running under my parents’ management so that the profits can support my parents without them having to slog away all day.
I decided to take up a proper course so that I can be better equipped with the knowledge to start a salon and train the staff well. Given my interest in nail art, I didn’t mind taking the course. After much research, I finally settled on a Diploma in Professional Nail Technology from Pink Room International Professional Nail Academy.

It’s the most comprehensive programme I could find, plus you take exams and get internationally-recognised certificates from Japan and Korea, so even though it’s the most expensive course available in Singapore, I decided on it. It’s going to cost me $4000. :(

There are three main components – natural nail care, extension and nail art. I’m going to start with the nail art first sometime next month. Can’t wait! How exciting!
