All Good Things Must End

I never thought the day would come when I made this particular announcment but....

I'm retiring.

I enrolled in the nails only course for my California manicurist license in February (the 19th, I believe) 1992.

March 1, 1992 was my first day of class.

I graduated the course in July 1992 (I had a slight gap when I transferred to a different school.)

I took my state board and received my license on Oct 2, 1992. (Back then it took FOREVER between graduating the course and actually getting your state board date.)

I have been doing this for 25 years.

For most of those two and half decades, I truly believed I would be doing this till they pried my file from my cold, dead hands.... or at least until I was about 70.

Things change.

March 23, 2017 will be the last day I call myself a professional nail technician. But not the last day that I will be a licensed nail technician. Because I worked hard for the license and I worked hard to make that license mean so much more than the state California requires it to be-- and because the future is not yet written and it's always good to keep your options open.

I have always promised that my website would remain up long after I was out of the business, so the site won't be going anywhere. You can still email me from here. I can't guarantee the future of any of my social media accounts or the phone number.

What happened? Where am I going? What will I do next? Check out the personal blog and get up to date.
