Hello my dear readers
I have been very busy recently so I apologize for being less here. I am sure that I am going to make it up to you quickly. Today I would like to share with you my experience at the Scottish Hair & Beauty Exhibition which was last weekend in the Edinburgh Royal Highland Centre. The weather was absolutely stunning, a little bit chilly but with a lot of sun. I spent a lot of hours on the train but finally I am very happy that I had a chance to be there.
If you are a regular around here you will know that last year I was at the very similar exhibition in Birmingham in England. I have to say that the Scottish event was much better for nail professionals/ nail polish lovers than this one in Birmingham. There was more space and very easy access to take a look, talk to exhibitors, try some products or ask for advice.
My favourite was the Cuccio stand with a gorgeous collection of nail polishes, nail care products, cosmetics for hands, manicure and pedicure.
I received as a gift a beautiful lavender/lemongrass body butter, delicate, creamy and perfect for skin.
I spent some time with OPI, they had a massive collection of various colours of standard polishes and gel polishes. They had a small problem with payment acceptance because of bad reception for their card reader. This was quite funny when the ladies had to jump up and down to accept our payment.
And you can see what I bought- from left: Significant Other Colour, Show Us Your Tips, Princesses Rules
Pierre Rene was very popular this year. They had a fantastic offer for a lot of attractive cosmetics.
Ardeco polishes are new for me and I will be very happy to try them.
Unfortunately they have no names only numbers...
The natural beauty products from NYR Organic totally absorbed my attention. I tried some of them and I really love them. I didn't buy any but I am thinking that I have to order online.
I received a few samples and I have to say that this facial oil is awesome!
China Glaze had a very small exhibition and I was a little bit disappointed about it. Anyway I bought couple polishes.

I have never tried Jean Marin brand. I choose a two shades which supposed to be trendy this season:

YCC is also new for me. They offered a massive collection but I finally choose dusty pink number 120 and blue number 122- both are holo.
I am glittery maniac so this collection below is my true love - I can watch them all day :)
I think that never is enough of good quality files for nails. These one from Astonishing are really good, soft and really professional.
I was on the a few beauty shows from Habia -Vtct, there were almost like a educational shows. Unfortunately they were only about makeup and hair style- nothing about nails....but anyway they were very good and I had a chance to watch incredibly talented people.
And a small gold brooch is a sign that I belong to nail clan.....
Summering, I had a really good time in Edinburgh. This is one of the best beauty shows I have ever been. I am very happy about my new stuff. I wonder if there is anything what you would like me to show as a first? I will be very happy if you leave me your comments about it.
Thank you for stopping by.
Have a nice day!
