Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

This afternoon I have an appointment at the beauty salon (in order) to have my acrylic nails done. These nails are the ones that I like the most because they last a long time. Before starting, I will get my hands washed well and I will get protective nail gel applied. Then, I will get my cuticles shaped and I will have the acrylic mixture put on my nails. When it dries, I will get my nails shaped correcting some imperfections and I will get cherry red nail polish put on. I will have spectacular nails!
