Crystal Bling Acrylic Sculptured Nails

Way back in 1986 – I won first place trophy in Sculptured Nails – on a nail biter!  With only 12 weeks of experience doing acrylic hand sculpted nails – this was a miracle!  There were almost a hundred other contestants – some had just won competitions in New York and Colorado Nail Shows.  This is when I knew that God was with me in this journey into the World of Beauty and Nails!  And my model the week before came over for me to practice doing her nails…….well little did I know that she was wearing those press on plastic nail tips from the drug store….until she pulled them off to bare her nail bitten nails!  Nearly no fingernails at all…..only swollen, callused fingertips!  I was horrified and prayed under my breath!  What to do Lord?  I couldn’t let her down as she was one of the girls I was mentoring and she was so excited to be my nail model for the competition in the USA.  So I prayed  – and I distinctly heard Holy Spirit tell me; “don’t worry Colleen.  I will show you how to do her nails – even though it looks impossible – it isn’t!  You will even win the competition!”  WOW – I was so shocked to hear this and I almost was afraid to feel confident!  But I knew this was what I was to do – the beauty industry is so powerful and influential.  I knew God had me in this business for ministry purposes to reach women with the beauty of the Lord and help them discover their purpose in life!

So the exciting journey began…….we went to the competition in the US – it was for the MID-WEST – USA – CANADA……and it was a challenge from the get-go.  We got lost, I was late, then we didn’t have an extension cord for my lamp…..someone had to let me share….which finally a girl did….and I didn’t have the accepted labelled products for the competition rules so John had to run all over the exhibition hall and find me the acceptable products to use for the competition and purchase them.   He got back in time….they took a vote to accept me starting late as I was from another country!  So inspite of all these obstacles – even my friend who came with us, she thought the other competitors looked like they were going to win as they had beautiful model nails and mine were not so great looking to begin with……so she even left us and sat with all the other nail techs that had won at the other city competitions.    Well it was quite an ordeal – but I kept my calm because I had the word from the Lord, and when they called out the winners they started at 3rd position first, then second place, then first place…..and those who thought they were going to win were ready to get their photos snapped and run up – but it was my #15 that was called as the first place winner!  They were all so upset – even tried to contest – but I won!  It was amazing!  Yes the Holy Spirit did show me how to sculpt competition nails – even on a nail biter and I did win.  Then the most exciting thing was that the sound system had broken so the stage had to hook up into the whole exhibition hall sound system – and then they called me up to the stage to receive my trophy and get crowned with a beautiful crystal tiarra with my model – and they asked me what I had to say – and please share and speak to the whole beauty expo!  Well that was so exciting – I shared about how they all had such an important profession as the beauty industry is powerful and influential – they are speaking to so many women and beautifying them!  And how that the master artisan is our heavenly father and HE created their gift to use to show HIS beauty and his purpose for our lives!  So I was able to share my testimony a bit to the whole Beauty Expo.  After ward I had people and manufacturer owners coming looking for me to talk.  Some of them just had to see what I looked like they said as they never met such a cool Christian in the beauty industry before that day!

That is how I really got launched and thrown into the beauty industry in a powerful way.  From winning that nail competition I won hundreds of dollars of products, nail furniture, training classes and even a trip to the Las Vegas Nail competition a few months later!  That’s a little bit of my story – I will share more along the way in my blogs.  But for you to know the depth of the purpose and my heart for helping us all to enhance our true beauty – which comes from God – the Master Creator – so that we will be confident and know HIM in a greater way and lead others to HIM and the power of His Spirit.
