Did you guys hear that Serena Williams is training to become a nail tech? As if being a full-time star athlete is not enough, she recently enrolled in a Florida nail certification program. Apparently, Serena was inspired by her love of nails. She says on her blog: “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.”
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Serena is coming out with her own nail collection from HairTech, but what other celeb actually gets certified in the field?
Serena is slowly chipping away at the required 240 hours, but she’s realizing it’s not as easy as she though. She told People that she’s going to tip manicurists more now because “I didn’t realize they do so much work! There’s actually an art to it.” Serena’s tips for doing your own nails are: “Be patient. Go for long, even strokes. Use a quick-dry top coat, then stay still for 10 minutes.”
