Thanks to Nubar, my nails are now polished a lovely Fire Sparkle red. I got the mini-manicure at the Urban Sanctuary “Jetsetter Luxe Lounge” retail suite at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., yesterday. (Fancy!)
Nubar, along with Jet Blue, was one of the major sponsors of this high-end retail event. With items like jewelry, skin care products, fashion, and décor all in a suite at the hotel, celebrities and consumers are invited to shop the items, with a portion of all proceeds going to the St. Bernard Project, a nonprofit that helps rebuild homes of Hurricane Katrina survivors.
In addition to Nubar, there were some other brands that might be appropriate for a salon, such as candles and jewelry with wholesale pricing options. If you’re in the area, the event continues at the Peninsula from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. today and tomorrow, so you may want to take a few minutes to stop by and check it out (and get a Nubar manicure!).
