Bev McDonald’s Story
I am the most simple person that doesn’t like shiny or anything pretty! Hmmmmmmm and I love to do nails. Here is my story.
I have never been one for a lot of makeup, shiny jewelry or fancy clothes. I live in a small town hours from any large city. Lived in the bush all of my life enjoying the simple things in life like fishing, camping, hunting and enjoying the -40 winter days ice fishing and snow machining. I was a very young mother and did home day care all my life while our children were young. As they graduated I realized it was time for me to do something I had my eye on for years. I went back to school to graduate and start to look at a career in nail care. But how would I manage to be away from home to go to school miles away. One evening while looking I found a place Online! Really !!! I was so pleased to find a place that I could get a nail tech diploma, not just a certificate. Mirage Spa! Wow the excitement started. I couldn’t get my first module in the mail fast enough.
I worked at each module day after day to complete it. Any questions I had, Cheryl was only a phone call away. She is absolutely fantastic. Upon completion, I could not wait for my certification to arrive in the mail to hang in my office.
Six years ago I started out with a few friends that now have turned into a full time hobby job. I look forward everyday to seeing all my old and new friends that come through the door. Every set of nails I do comes with a great visit. Love Love Love it!
Never a day goes by that I don’t look forward to seeing people. Everyday I create new fun sets of nails. Over the years I have built a very good customer base. My nails are recognized around town. I love when people notice fun nails and know exactly where they got them done.
Everyone has a unique style and everyone likes different styles, so for the few people that say there are too many shops in one town. Not True.
Signing up in Mirage Spa was the best thing I have ever done.
So now I have one last step in my nail process and that is making a trip to Vancouver to meet the lady that helped me make this all possible. I will meet Cheryl this month. I can’t wait!
