Applying Nail Colors in the shade of Sapphire Glow and Easy Going


 




Since the first time I used nail polish on my nails, I've learned that practice makes perfect. Since then, I've learned how to apply and use nail products based on my preferences. Some of my nail care tools were purchased, while others were prizes from online contests and promotions. The best and most fun ways to wear nail colors are to mix and match them. If there is a nail color trend and I have colors and products to use, I will try to get ideas from it. One method for learning and practicing.

There are also hundreds of video tutorials online where you can learn and get ideas from. Techniques and proper application is the key to beautiful nails and nail colors.

Before you begin polishing your nails, choosing the ideal color is essential for having gorgeous nails. Choose colors that you currently like, or if you're going to an event, choose colors that correspond with your mood or are appropriate for the occasion. Colors used in everyday life range from neutral tones to light tints. It will also go well with your business casual outfit or the occasion. When it comes to applying nail colors, I always follow this general rule.

For this one, I used Easy Going as the based color and for the top coat- its from Caronia Sapphire Glow (blue glitters in natural color). I haven't done much on the nail cleaning since I just wanted to apply nail colors to my nails. 

Aren't they look nice and simple? What do you think? 

What is your favorite nail color shade for everyday wear?

Transition smartly and level up your face-to-face classes with Rex Education’s Schoology


 May be an image of text



The education landscape has been forever changed by the pandemic. As we continue to champion education and believe that it evolves and transforms lives, we can expect more and better changes in the future.
Being in the now new normal, going back completely to the way we were does not encourage evolution nor transformation. We have explored so much, stretched our capabilities, challenged old norms, and persevered and persisted. We are moving forward. We take with us the learnings, technology, and innovation of the significant last 2 years and integrate them into an evolved version of an education continuity template, our shield, for the 21st century.
With schools getting ready to transition back to face-to-face classes, Rex Education reminds educators that there are many tools and best practices from their distance learning setup that can help them level up students’ learning experiences inside and outside the classroom. Schoology is one useful and impactful tool.
Schoology is one of the very first learning management systems (LMS) made available to teachers and students to continue their teaching and learning from home when schools were forced to close temporarily in 2020. Because of the demand for LMS during that period, REX expanded the reach of Schoology and the wealth of resources available on the platform. Thousands of teachers and students are now using Schoology as part of their online and distance teaching and learning modalities.
“When we introduced Schoology to the Philippines in 2015, we had an idea in mind that the digital classroom is the classroom of the future. That’s why when the pandemic broke out, we were ready. Schoology created an avenue for seamless learning, without compromising our learners, and playing to the advantage of our learners being digital natives. Today, the digital classroom is the classroom of the now normal.” said Rex Education CEO, Don Timothy Buhain.

Schoology is the digital classroom of today
Returning to face-to-face classes does not mean leaving behind the best practices we have learned from online and distance learning. Schoology was originally designed to augment and enhance the traditional learning setup, not completely replace it, making it the perfect platform to provide 21st-century learning experiences needed to transition students in the now new normal.
Technology cannot be an add-on; it’s a necessity. Flexible learning is not a privilege or an advantage; it’s also a necessity. Certainly, future-proofing our classrooms, although it cannot be perfected, is a reality.
To date, the transition is ongoing and many schools are in different stages in their choice of learning modalities that will fit their learners’ needs. Some may still be designing or experimenting, and some others are already strengthening what they have. Having a trusted partner grounded in sustainability, flexibility, and technology is key in making the transition as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Backed by more than 70 years of expertise, Rex Education and with Schoology could be every school’s ideal partner for the 21st-century classroom.
Schoology makes synchronization seamless. Since many schools have been employing a hybrid learning setup where students go to school in schedules or batches, using Schoology as the primary LMS for each class ensures that all students—both on-site and off-site—are on the same page.
In addition, assessment is made easier with the automated test scoring and consolidation of results through Schoology’s Grade Book. Analytics are readily available for teachers so they may adjust their materials based on the class performance, while parents are able to monitor their children's progress throughout the quarter and the academic year.
Moreover, classroom management and communication are centralized in the platform. Students, teachers, and parents can also monitor the student workload through Workload Planning, and they can be reminded of deadlines using the platform’s Calendar function.
Schoology can be accessed via browser on PC and laptops, or on mobile phones and tablets via the app. As an all-in-one learning platform, it comes packed with features like Personalized Courses, Calendar, Messages, Dropbox, Online Tests, Integrated Apps, Groups, and Grade Book.
“Our partnership with Schoology is just one of REX’s many efforts to fulfill our promise that we go where the learner goes. Our learners’ needs and circumstances are always changing, always evolving; and it is our duty as Edukampyons to be on the cutting-edge of educational innovation so our products and services are always relevant to the 21st-century learner,” revealed Buhain.
