Today, meet Nicole Franklin, nail blogger turned nail professional. She has turned the table and found her passion on the pro side. Here is Argentina from her point of view:
It’s so difficult to try to put such an unforgettable experience into words! To have our team be the very first Americans to compete in The Nailympion Argentina is just such an honor all on its own. Each day was filled with so many amazing new experiences, both nail related and non-nail related. There were so many beautiful sites to see, and we took in everything that we possibly could with the time that we had. From the overwhelming Recoleta Cemetery to the breathtaking Jardín Japonés, Buenos Aires is truly a remarkable city.
All of the wonderful new friends that we made were so unbelievably welcoming and made us feel so comfortable, and that meant the world to all of us. Just by sharing their Yerba Mate with us, and, thankfully, teaching us how to make it here at home, they allowed us all to bring home a little bit of their culture, which feels so special.
Competing alongside such phenomenal talents was incredible. I cannot wait to go back again!
