I am beginning to love these daily nail school posts. Especially because it feels like I'm counting down the days until I graduate! Haha, just kidding. I'm starting to like it a little more. Today we watched a demo of a manicure and then we got to do manis on each other! The girl who did my mani, I'll call her R for anonymity (totally different note: did I mention that in my class of 13, there are 4 Jessica's), did a pretty good job. She was sitting next to a friend of hers from high school, so she got a little distracted at times, but overall my nails look great! I've never had a manicure before (once I got acrylics done with Ron's mom, but never a straight up manicure). So I don't know how it compared to an actual manicure. But my nails are well painted. I cut my nails really short last night, so it was hard for her to shape them, and they're a bit jagged because of that. It turns out that I do not in fact have cuticles. Apparently some people don't really get cuticles. Which is why I was so confused about what they were. I thought that the cuticle was what is in fact the eponychium, which is live skin, as opposed to the cuticle which is dead skin. The girl getting a manicure next to me had SOOO much cuticles, it was crazy.
