Serena Williams to become nail tech

15 February 2010 [12:09] - TODAY.AZ
Serena Williams has revealed that she is taking classes to become a nail technician.
The tennis star, who admits to pampering herself every four days, has written on her Global Grind blog about her latest passion of nails.

Williams wrote: "No one likes getting their nails done more than I do. As a matter of fact I go every four days to get a manicure and every seven 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'. Immediately after I came home from the Australian Open I researched some schools and enrolled in a course that allowed me to complete 240 hours (that's what you have to do to get certified at least in Fla. [Florida]) at my own pace."

She continued: "The night before my class I made sure I had all my tools, books and gear organised. 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."

Williams added: "Not only do I plan on being the top student to graduate from my nail school, but I also intend on being the most fashionable! Don’t be surprised if you hear about a part time job I’ve picked up at a local nail salon."
