Happy Holidays!!

Happy Holidays Everyone! The year has gone by so fast, and so many great things have happened in my personal career as well as Dashing Diva. Above, is a picture of me and a couple of my coworkers at the company Christmas party. I am so privileged to work with so many wonderful people who are behind some of the greatest products on the market. In fact, we have a couple of revolutionary products that will be introduced next year, and are sure to rock the industry! The launching of Designfx was a huge success for Dashing Diva this year. From the Kardashians to Katy Perry, many of the stars have been seen wearing these innovative new appliqu├ęs. I'm so excited for what the New Year will bring!

Speaking of Katy Perry, I just recently did her nails for her appearance on Saturday Night Live. Wasn't she so funny?! Here is a link to one of my favorite skits. I am so privilege to have done her nails three times this month while she was in New York. In fact, she wore Designfx to the Barbara Walter Special, and is one of the first clients to wear our new generation of Designfx coming out next year. Sorry, I can't show you any pictures, but don't feel too bad, I only put them on her feet, so they're still top secret!

The glitter trend was a huge hit this year as well! Many of my clients donned the latest bling. Even conservative Rachael Ray allowed me to add some sparkle to her toes, using Gelish gel polish in "Good Gossip" (which is highly unusual for her)!

Remember, during these cold, winter months, be sure to hydrate your nails and protect them from nature's elements! And of course, Merry Christmas, and a blessed new year to all!! Until next year....

At the end of October, I went to Los Angeles to judge the Nailympics! I was so honored that head judge, Lysa Comfort, included me on her international team of judges; including industry experts from around the globe. Countries such as Italy, Korea, Singapore, and others came out to judge the best!

Here, I am judging the Stiletto category. I was so privaledged to see such amazing work by such talented nail artists.

It's always great to see my friend Katie Cazorla from hit reality show, Nail Files. She was the MC for the award ceremony. Above, includes Katie and my new from Rachel Tang from Singapore. Rachel ownes a nail school in Singapore and is highly requested to judge nail competitions around the world!

I also had the honor to see Tom Holcomb, a brilliant nail artist, whose untimely death would impact the nail industry in a big way. He was a great friend to me over the years, and he will always be remebered for his wonderful work in the industry.

Kourtney & Kim Take New York!

Hi Everyone! Recently, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the Kardashians, and this Fashion Week was no exception. In fact, I was called by their manegement to do the season two Kourtney & Kim Take New York ad! I used colors from the O.P.I Kardashian line. It was a little crazy running in between fashion shows to do their nails, but I was thankful for the opportunity and glad I was able to do the Take New York ad for the second time. Be sure to watch the show on Sunday nights!
