#1 Eyelash Extensions recently came out with a new magnetic mix. Christina Dao, Cookie Do, and Natalie Pham.

Cosmoprof North America’s 10 year anniversary in Las Vegas showed just how resilient the beauty industry can be. With new exhibitors and large booths, the nail manufacturers showed that the market place is continuing to grow.

The event was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center from July 22 – 24 and featured 856 exhibiting companies with over 25,000 attendees, representing a 9% increase to the year before. A collection of importers, distributors, manufactures, and global beauty leaders from all over the world gathered under one roof to reaffirm relationships and create new business opportunities in beauty.

The show offers a unique occasion for nail manufacturers to connect directly with their distributors and showcase their newest products for the coming year. The show kicked off with George Schaeffer’s City of Hope Spirit of Life Award ceremony, which featured top-notch dining and star studded musical guests. And the NAILS team held their own cocktail party at a suite in the Mandalay Bay, bringing the nail world together for a fun night of laughs.

Start planning ahead for next year’s show as Cosmoprof North America 2013 will take place July 14 – 16 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
