WOW!!! We could not have asked for more!!! It is such a pleasure and soooo rewarding when you take a class FULL of such talented & passionate nail artists from USA, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Sweden, Ukraine & the UK ! We had an amazing day! Viv Simmonds and Catherine Wong performed 3 designer nails demonstrations each on the first 6 attendees to enrol. Our designs covered Gel etching, Gel design, Acrylic Engraving, Acrylic Imbedded and Acrylic 3d.
With the exception of a technical glitch in the morning with the monitor not co-operating with the video, we were up and running by lunch with a display screen for viewing our demo's as well as those wishing to stand around to watch. We had networking going on and other artists bringing their own unique skills and talents to the table. We swapped advise, techniques and shared many a good laugh!!!
In the afternoon, the attendees were able to sit and practice some of the techniques shown while Catherine and Viv walked around assisting individuals. We gave out posters and signed them, we took photo's upon photo's and we shared heaps of hugs!
It was sad to see the day come to an end, as it passed so fast! We are now looking forward to the next class where we can catch up with you all again and also get to meet more of you in person!!!
Our next class is scheduled for London in September following the Olympia Expo. We hope to see you there!!! For more info on this class visit www.vivcatdesign.blogspot.com
It could not have been a more challenging Nailpro competition season with so many international competitors, both novice and veteran division. It's a very humbling experience to see so many amazing entries and to compete amongst the best in the industry. I personally love the friendship forged outside of the competition arena and be able to meet all these amazing talents that this industry has to offer.
