Hello!
I'm afraid to say, I was the first person to have a demo nail done by Mr Sweet, and yes, I was the one who came over faint (thanks for your concern, Tracyann!:green: Were you one of those who fanned me?) I never got near the Creative stand again, so my beautiful nail didn't get finished:rolleyes: . I apologise for making a scene, I was so hot, and it came over me quite suddenly, the room started to spin, I knew I was gonna go down! I was wheeled away in a wheelchair through crowds of people to the first aid room, where the attendant told me he was a bit concerned about my blood pressure being low! It came up again, but not to a normal level, so he adviced me to see my doctor:eek: . I was there Monday too, and as soon as I got to the Creative stand I started to heat up again! I think they must have been placed in an area that got no circulation of air.

I would suggest though that the models are supplied with a chair while they are being worked on - if it happened last year and again after me, there's a pattern. I think it's 'cos it was hot, and Creative's stand is SO popular that the many bodies make the area even hotter.

I met several Geeks, thanks Laystar for my badge (I WORE MINE!) and hi to Debs & co. who I met at the EzFlow stand.

I had a nail done by Antony Buckley, OMG it's beautiful! I'm gonna try to put a pic of it on the gallery, unfortunately a couple of my rhinestones fell off Ruby (the name given to the nail - in honour of my mum - thanks Antony, she would have loved that!) Dunno how I'm gonna work with one long nail like that, but darn it, I'm gonna try! I'll keep it as long as I can!

I spent half as much again as I was planning to, and I bought things that weren't on my list, and didn't buy others that were!

Had a great time (eventually!), will I go back - YES! Hopefully I'll have earned loads to spend on more stuff!:cool:

Blimey Teena! Hope you are feeling better? I think you must just have been flustered being around Mr Sweet!! I've had it on very good authority that he is quite a dish! J xx

Hope you're feeling better now, I've never been to Excel, just GMEX, and it's horrendous there too, I've always gone and found a quiet spot if I've ever felt like toppling over!

Dying to see Antony's nail - get those pics up!!!! :biggrin:

Hi Teena
No don't apologise! That was me last year although fortunately I managed to recover and get my nail finished! Mr Geek was very concerned which was nice. I too have lowish blood pressure which doesn't help, but if the conditions were better you wouldn't have a problem. You're absolutely right they need more air and definitely chairs! If you're not under the lights it's also not so bad.

I waited until the end of the day and had a fab Brisa nail done by Amanda. However another model under the lights went down when I was there and was also wheeled away! I was at the show on Monday as well and it was like a morgue by comparison!

Lovely nail - thanks for putting up the pic. Just reminded me I bought some larger rhinestones...... must have a play with them later.
