screenshot_2016-08-10-11-54-16-1.pngHi My name is Crissy! I’m from California, I live in San Diego. I moved here 4 years ago as a navy wife, I have a 6 year old son who I am working so hard for! 

How long have you been a nail technician seriously?

I have been a nail tech for 4 months.

What type of girl where you growing up girly girl or tom boy? Who are some of your influences?

I wasn’t real girly but wasn’t a tom boy. I loved make up and nails. But never really wore heels or shorts/dresses, I’m just me. Lol I honestly never had a person I wanted to be like or that wowed me, I just always wanted to be better person than I was after each day. 

How was it for you growing up? Is this what you always wanted to do? what career did you see yourself having when you were growing up?

Growing was typical no father in the house, but I would always talk to him, I knew who my father was. My mom never talked bad about him, she was a hard working, very strong woman. I never knew what I wanted to do as a career I loved hair also so I started selling it 7 years ago. But I never knew my career choice until actually this year! My husband said to me one day, “why don’t you do nails!?” I’m like OMG right lol and I signed up two days later! I never seen myself has a nail tech because the Asian have it on lock. But this is what I love and I wish I had done it sooner! I’m in love with nails. 

What have you been working on?

Right now I’m just sending out samples of nail supplies I sale to popular YouTube  vloggers

What other talents do you have?

I do a little make up, which is like my second love!

 If you weren’t doing nails what would you be doing?

Probably selling hair still and planning to opening a salon or store.

Have you done any services for anyone famous?

 Nails, no not yet I’m hoping to one day. I have sent hair to Diamond from Crime Mob and Lil Mo in exchange for promo. 

What designs are your specialties?

I love glitter encapsulation.

Do you have any competition in the nail world?

No. I don’t compete with anyone but myself I don’t worry about what others are doing.

Anyone you look to for inspiration in the nail world?

I like Naja from La hair I follow her Instagram. She is so nice and humble and always helping others in the nail industry. 

For you to feel successful what are some goals you would like to accomplish?

 

I want to be the best person I can be so people continue to love my spirit. I want to booked and not overlooked! I want continue to stay healthy. Last but not least stay strong and be the best mother to my son i want to raise him right. 

  What level of success would you have to reach to feel as if you made it?

I want to be the talk of the town for being the sweetest person anyone has ever met! I want to be able to give others joy when they are having a bad day. In this industry, us nail techs sometimes have close relationships with our clients, we are their therapist. We hear so many stories and sometimes we’re able to give helpful advice. So it’s important I stay humble and show courtesy at all times. I will not be happy if a client leaves my chair unhappy with my work but more importantly with my attitude. 

What would you like to be remembered for when its all said and done and the lights go out?

That my smile lit the room up!

I want to thank you guys for this opportunity! This is so amazing! I appreciate this! 

Any words of wisdom?

Be humble, because you can go out of style.

Poem “White Boy Privilege” 

My friend sent me a link that made me shed a tear. I was so moved by 8th grader Royce Mann’s delivery of “White Boy Privilege”. Even a child could see the injustice in our System, why can’t everyone else?  Mann’s powerful words won him first place in the competition and I could see why, but could we see change on the rise?? We have to be the change we want to see, we have to take responsibility for our actions and shortcomings, then we have to put a plan in action and follow through on our words. Mann is a leader of the new school and the revolution will be televised. Click the link below to watch the video.

“The Last Laugh”Stand-up Comedy @ Tir Na Nog

  • Bruce Walton

It seems as though the comedy scene in Daytona Beach is getting harder and harder to find. With the recent closing of a couple of comedy clubs it seems that the only time we can catch comedy is when the Peabody Auditorium brings a celebrity comic and that may be every blue moon. After searching and searching I finally found a place that does comedy and the great part about it is they let locals perform.

The Tir Na Nog lets a group of comics host stand-up comedy every Wednesday at their bar. One Wednesday they let their veterans perform stand-up and on the following Wednesday they have open mic comedy. I was very pleased at what I saw this past Wednesday so I would like to introduce you to the comics.

The first person is Zach Bennett. He is our host and comic. His comedy is very natural but witty. Its almost as if he’s having regular conversation but it just so happens to be funny. He also shows great participation and support with the comics on stage.

The first performer of the night was Ian Perna. He does a great “In your face” style of comedy. Very laid back demeanor but you still get the feeling that he could kick your ass. He has no problem dealing with the crowd and hecklers. I don’t know what type of wrap Joe Rogan has as a comedian but he reminds me of him and I like Joe Rogan so thats not a bad thing in my eyes.

The next comic to the stage was Joe Lovece. Joe is a set up, punch line, type of comic. Even in his set-ups he still might catch you out of no where with a punchline. His comedy reminds me of some one who would work for a sketch comedy show or a studio audience, sitcom type of show.

Our next comic to the stage was Sareth Ney. Sareth is definitely not scared to go there. He made it very clear that he is proud of his “dirty mind”. Don’t get it twisted though, his jokes definitely have cleverness to them. And his jokes are back to back so you definitely get your fill when you watch him. The most impressive things about his show is that he actually changed his clothing and became an entirely different character which is his alter ego “Wu Man Chu”. Wu Man Chu is a character inspired from the infamous rap crew “Wu Tang Clan” with a mixture of a super hero. I wish I took a picture of the costume but he definitely diverted my attention away from my camera. I was interested in exactly where he was going with it. He didn’t let me down.

The next comic to the stage was Blair Baker. One thing I can say about Blair is she has great stage presence. She works the stage very well and she just has a pleasantness about her. Very spunky. Her comedy was well rounded. Energetic, witty, risky, sexy.

Moving right along we have Annie Pozzella. One of her strong points was that she definitely gets you very involved with her story. To the point where you are imagining exactly what is happening. Her style of comedy is “Hey, family. Here’s how my day went” and its lighthearted and funny at the same time.

The next comic to the stage is Rica Marie. I actually know Rica personally from our Performing Arts class at Daytona State College. She has always had an up beat energy about her. Her comedy is just the same. She even had some raunchy yet bashful moments which gave her comedy a cute feeling to them.

The closer for the night was Sean Beagan who was also the birthday boy. His comedy was definitely polished. He didn’t seem like he had to write much because the way he improvised on the spot was quite impressive. His jokes were definitely well structured and clever. He works the crowd very well and seems to understand the vibe in the room.

Although he didn’t really perform our other host was Marty Labbe. I wanted to introduce him, too.

All-In-All, I was pleased and refreshed. But don’t take my word for it I would definitely go check them out. The variety will give you your feel of what you need. There were moments where i burst out laughing, moments where I was embarrassed, and moments where I were genuinely just intrigued. We definitely need to support things like this. I would definitely like to see this thing grow. My only regret is that I didn’t get video to show you some clips but I won’t forget next time. Thank you for having me and see you next Wednesday

Next Show – Wednesday, April 6th – Open Mic Comedy – Tir Na Nog Irish Bar 612 E International Speedway BLVD, Daytona Beach,FL 32118
