NAILS gives a heartfelt thank you to Alica and Melodie for finishing up their 1-year stints as Blueprint bloggers. We learned so much from them, and, based on your comments, we think you did too! If you have specific questions for Melodie and Alica, you can still leave them in the comments section of their previous blog posts, and we'll monitor those for you. (Karyn and Candice are still mid-year, so their regular posts will keep coming!)
We are also thrilled that we've found two new salon owners to share their experiences here. This week, Makeda and Chauna will be introducing themselves. Makeda will be opening Posh'aah Nail Spa in Chicago in March 2012, and Chauna will be opening Bmore Polished Lash & Nail Bar in Baltimore on New Year's Eve! So stay tuned and encourage them as they search for spaces, create menus, and so much more. We hope their experiences will encourage all of you new, aspiring, and established salon owners out there.
