i'm not sure bout the ticket thing though i would think you'd need two but as i said not sure.

what to expect when you get there........... pure nail shopoholic fantasy.
make sure you where comfortable shoes.
have money to spend.
tickets usually do both days but dont quote me on this its nice to do both as on the first day its nice to go and watch the nail technicians compete and support them also hang around for when the results are anounced then on the second day if you can make it shop shop shop.
if you have a partner or hubby take them as well you will need him to carry all the goods you have bought.........and dont worry loads of blokes go for that very reason........lol.
there are always demo,s on most of the stands where you can get all starry eyed (well i do ) when you see in person all the people you espire too.
above all its a fun enjoyable and tireing day out

thanks joanne. unfortunatly im leaving my bag carrier behind and going with a friend who is also new to nails. we were planning on going out in manchester on the sunday night after the show and as we dont live around there we also have no idea where we should go there either, so any ideas on that one would be great to. (although maybe we shud b havin early nights so we r fit for the mon. he he)

Most importantly, as Joanne has already mentioned - wear comfortable shoes!

Try to plan where you want to go, plan a route - you'll need it.

Last year there was a kind of VIP area for snacks and drinks etc - get in there if you can cos seats in the other 'dining' areas are few and far between and trust me, after 5 hours you'll need to rest your feet and it's amazing how mean people can get when there's only one free seat left!

Everybody whinges about people who take them, but...... take a small trolley - your fingers will be cut to ribbons.

Take plenty of water with you.

You'll need loadsa money!

And if you're driving and park in the underground car park, take great care to note whereabouts you park. My friend and I were left wandering around the labrynths for about an hour looking for her car - we knew we were on the correct level, just couldn't find the car!

Go on the Sunday if you can and try to arrive about 9am if you're driving, closer to 10am if you're not - you'll just get left to wait outside till they're due to open.

They have a cloakroom - use it!

And take one of those little 'handy fans' with you for when you're close to fainting due to the heat and the crowds!

But most of all - have fun!

I'm really envious - I won't be there this year. :cry:
