If you've ever been to a nails-only show, what was the BEST thing about it?

And what was the WORST thing about it?

We hold a nails-only show each year (this is our 9th one) at the Gatlinburg TN Convention Center & we're always looking for ways to improve it for our nail techs, educators & company owners!

This year is going to be the biggest EVER & due to demand from nail companies, we expanded into a 2nd Ballroom. Well, we just sold all the booths in that new Ballroom & it only took 2 weeks!

Now that we're bringing you all these wonderful companies, we need your help getting the word out to nail techs! If these companies who are supporting us do not make a profit at their booths, they will not be back.

So if you've ever wanted to experience mass quantities of nail companies all in one affordable location, here's your chance this year!
