Roxy Gets Butterflies for ISSE Long Beach

by NAILS Magazine | January 18, 2012 | Bookmark +

ISSE Long Beach is around the corner and the nervous excitement begins.

I get butterflies every time I hear the music as I get ready to enter those double doors of yet another beauty paradise, lol.

I also get butterflies thinking about the competition and how I will do.

But it is truly rewarding to see the many familiar faces at the competition that recognize me regardless of winning or not — that makes me a winner in my book.

I wanted to enter the gel nail art competition. The theme was “Party Time.” And even though I do a wide variety of gel art, when I thought about it I started to feel overwhelmed.

I couldn’t think of a good design, so to just keep it simple I’ll enter the French Manicure competition.

I’ll be using Orly’s Gel FX, which cures super-fast in the LED lamp, which makes me feel a little better time wise since the competition is only 30 minutes long.

My hand model canceled on me last minute but I was blessed enough to find another one.

I am so excited so please come by and check out the competitors if you want to try it. I will be at the Orly booth during the show so if you want to see how to do a fast French that might encourage you to compete more, please come and say Hi. J

Wish me luck and let’s hope these butterflies don’t tickle too much, LOL.

See you all there!!  Good luck to everyone!
