Dress Comfortably, but not tooo comfortably........
You will be standing and walking for the majority of the time, "oohing" and "ahhing"

possible. This is a networking event, not a day at the beach, so please dress appropriately.
Here are a few ideas of what to wear:
•Trousers,slacks, or capri pants.
•Knee length skirts or dresses (not fitted)
•Cardigans or a nice blouse or top
•Casual walking shoes, flats or clean tennis shoes
Have cash on hand
We all tell ourselves we will not buy that pretty pink glitter or that funky new
polish, but we always do. Come prepared with some cash to purchase the latest
products at great prices. Most of the sponsoring companies will be able to take
Credit Cards for payment and will usually ship your purchase if they do not have
stock on hand.
Pass it on!
Be vocal about your attendance to our event. You never know, there may be other
nail professionals in your area who are all coming to same event and not even
know it- trust us, it happened last year. Post and share this information on
networking and social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and blogs such as
NailTalk Radio. You can carpool, cut down costs and make friends without much
effort at all.
