Tennis ace Serena Williams
has turned her hand to beauty - she's training to qualify as a nail technician. Williams, who is dating rapper/actor Common
, enjoys pampering herself so much she is determined to be the best nail student at the Florida school she has signed up to.
Taking to her Global Grind blog, Williams writes, "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... The night before my class I made sure I had all my tools, books and gear organized."
"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."
