Friday I took a trip to Kansas City with a co-worker to visit the Beauty Brands Corporate office. They have some very unique stores in the midwest where they have a large retail area in the front, similar to an Ulta or Sephora store. In the rear of their stores, they house full service salons. Very interesting and they have beautiful locations. We went to introduce the Dashing Diva French Wrap Manicure System and our Metallic Nails to the Beauty Brands Group. They loved both products and will be adding them to their services and retail store!
Getting prepared for tomorrow and a busy day! Early morning I will be going to Martha Stewart studios to service my client Lucinda Scala Quinn, host of the Mad Hungry cooking show. This episode taping is for their holiday show and her mother and sons will be on the show as well, so I have extra manicures to do tomorrow morning! Please check out her show and blog and comment on her red nails! Lucinda is really an advocate for nail technicians and showing our work and skills. If you watch her show you will notice she always wears shades of red on her nails and is one of the only cooking show hosts with color on their nails. Check out her blog at http://blog.madhungry.com/. Also watch her show on the Hallmark Channel and let's all get together and support her boldness to wear red polish on the air! She has been getting some negative comments, but at least Martha Stewart told her she liked the red!
After Lucinda, I rush over to do Katy Perry's nails for her performance tomorrow night. She has requested "Candyland" nails, so I will be sure to keep you posted as to what I ended up doing for her. I have a few ideas, but she holds the final decision, of course! Check out the November 15th issue of People Magazine. Katy gave a shout out to our Dashing Diva Metallic nails!
That's all for today! Must get my kit packed for the day tomorrow!
