Hard as Nails

Posted by gauloises1 on February 14, 2010

So Serena Williams is using her time off with that chronic knee injury profitably. According to her blog at, she’s signed up for a class to become a professional nail technician. Obviously.

This photo is actually so cute I can’t stand it.

All it needs is a falling feather and Sally Fields.

No one likes getting their nails done more than I do.  As a matter of fact I go every 4 days to get a manicure and every 7 days for a pedicure. So, I had a brilliant idea to get certified to be a nail tech. Besides the fact that I am coming out with a nail collection from a company called HairTech, I thought “Serena this is a no brainer.” […]

The night before my class I made sure I had all my tools, books and gear organized. I went to the hello kitty store and bought plenty of containers as well as a backpack to keep my belongings. If I’m not the best, I sure do want to look like it. […]

Today was my first day and boy was I excited! When I got there, they immediately had us do pedicures on each other. I wanted to make sure I did it just the way the real salons do it, so I began with asking the girl if she wanted any water to drink. I was so relieved when she said no, because honestly, I didn’t have any to give her. Then I asked her to pick a color and she said French!! I’ve never done french, but I was determined to not butcher it.  Luckily, thanks to my weekly pedicures I took my time and it came out great. I know it wasn’t just me thinking I did good because all of the other girls kept asking if I had done this before. They thought I was on that show called “I get that a lot!”

Beauty school dropout … go back to tennis.

    Ummm… “no brainer” is the phrase of the day. My brain is still staggering.

    I loved the first-day-of-school look of the first photo, but you’ve brought the funny to another level with that comment. 😀
