ISSE Show Long Beach 2014 was a huge success by all measures. All the big nail companies were there showing off their wares. I took a couple shots to show how nice the booths were.
IBD was there.
Orly Gel FX,
Creative Nail Designs.
I like this one too.It is definitely a thing of love for nail technicians. And hair dressers too!
OPI’s booth was beautiful. A huge 40′ X 60′ booth with four demo stations sporting large TV’s so everyone around could see without crowding into the manicure table.
Two islands of products for sale and a huge four sided TV screen that show cased the newest Gwen Stefani collection. Very very classy!
They had a large selection of lacquers as well as Gel Color. Including the new reds, brights, and effects Gel Color.
Young nails had a very nice booth. With wide open space for demos and nicely laid out product. The gals who were doing demos were so kind and the gals at the cash register were kind enough to tell me a little about the company. I found out that Young nails is actually named after the boys Mom, Young. Very sweet! And she goes into work every day!
Orly, CND, & LeChat were also there.
As well as the industries leading magazine, Nails Magazine.
I had the pleasure to meet a couple of gals from Nails Magazine. Beth and Brittnay were very kind and I look forward to seeing them again. Pix to follow!
There were plenty of nail art supplies to choose from. And some great tools as well (That’s also another post!)
It was a fun filled hectic (tired feet) and worthwhile event. I highly recommend taking in at least one large trade show a year. That way you keep up on the newest techniques, get to hang around like minded people and get great energy from them. Plus you can get some really great deals at trade shows!
