July 14th is my half birthday (yes I celebrate these, who wouldn’t?!) and I spent my half special weekend in Vegas for Cosmoprof North America! For those that don’t know, every year in Las Vegas is Cosmoprof North America, a trade show for beauty industry professionals and ohmygoodmother, I was lucky enough to be an attendee!
Honestly, I wasn’t sure what I was more excited about, being at the show or meeting some AMAZING fellow bloggers and indie makers!
Sana of Glitter Daze, Rhonni of Ninja Polish, Melissa of The Daily Nail, Mimi of Makeup Withdrawal, Alyson of The Gloss Menagerie, Cynthia of Alter Ego Nail Enamel, Nancy-Lee of fashionCHICsta, Katherine of Manicure Addict, Jeanie of Midnight Manicures, Romy of Romy Raves, Brandy of Polished and Shined, Jamie of Sea Lore, Shelley of Polarbelle, Sandy of Dandy Nails and Claudia of Chromatic Misadventures.
So glad I got to meet one of my baby girl indie polish maker bffs!
Can you believe that this is only a part of the blogger and indie ladies? So sad I wasn’t able to meet up with everyone else. There’s always next year though!
Now let’s get to the actual show.
The organizers of CPNA hand selected a few brands to participate in their Beautique Bar where attendees can create their own sample box with a suggested $10 donation which goes to the City of Hope for Diabetes Research and Treatment.
Precision Nail Lacquer of Lamoon Beauty Products, Inc. have some gorgeous colors currently available and coming soon.
