Hi all, I too bought lots of goodies at Olympia, yesterday but, I'm not a happy bunny :( . Two videos, several OPI polishes, loads of Moor bits & bobs (nothing to do with nails I know but, I love the stuff), some nail art bits, a new brush - which I will name Sam. ;)I also got my Fabric# which I intend to play with some time today. I had my tutor Garey on the Calgel stand do me a sculpted demo to see where I'm going wrong and have planned a workshop. I had a demo nail done by another company who shall remain nameless, all I will say is its coming off pronto in case anyone thinks I did it myself. I'm really jealous though because you all met Mr & Mrs Geek! I was running a bit late anyway and couldnt believe my luck when I ended up on the hard shoulder waiting for the RAC. Nearly 3 hours I bloody waited. :evil: Even the police have said they will back my complaint. I missed all the seminars :( and when I finally got to the Creative stand I was told Sam had left 2 minutes ago :x All the stands were being closed up as I did my manic shopping frenzy - suppose I'm lucky to have managed to get anything under the circumstances! Anyway, glad to hear you all met up, maybe I'll be seeing you all at the next show :)

Well I've got to tell you all the news that you didn't hear yesterday AT the show because, It all happennned last night AFTER the show.

All the exibitors and their guests attended the Professional Beauty Ball where they hand out the INDUSTRY awards for the year - Nail Technician of the year, Nail Salon of the Year, Beauty Salon of the year etc.

This year Creative were nominated for the BEST TRAINING, and BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE AWARDS. To be nominated in two catagories is fantasitc and we were very proud.

An artificial nail company has NEVER won an award in Britain. Any way, WE WON :goal: We won the trophy for the best Training in the Beauty industry - NOT just the nail industry - up against people like Dermalogica and Guinot etc. The Geek and Samantha accepted the award on stage and were so excited.

Congratulations to all our Ambassador/Trainers because it is YOU who represent who we are out there, and it is your satisfied customers who make the nominations. You are all THE BEST and my thanks and love go to you all for making this AWARD possible.

The icing on the cake was that the 'Salon of the Year' was awarded to Marco Benito - a 100% Creative Salon, and the Nail technician of the Year is also a Creative Technician. Both got up on stage and gave thanks and credit to Creative which I thought was very gracious of them.

So it was Our Night last night - and I wasn't even there :(

Congratulations on the awards - they were well deserved. I too went to the show yesterday, could not get near the Creative stand for all the peeps there. I had hubby in tow - he kindly drove me there and back otherwise I would not have gone so I did not spend as much time browsing as I would have like too. Hubby was very patient and did duty donkey eminantly but I did not want to try his patience too far, hence I did not have any demos done on myself- I will need to visit more of these shows you know and will require a chauffeur. I was amazed by the exhibition and spent loads of money and still did not get everything I wanted. I am on the hunt for a nice nail station complete with everything but do not want to pay the earth should anyone have any ideas. Lovely day and I will do it again (soon I hope).

Hey girls,

I must give a big THANK YOU to Ruth, Faye & Layla for coming to see me (Dawnie was in the toilet!!) on Sunday. I'm just so sorry that I couldn't spend some more time with you all but hopefully we'll have a huge laugh when you come for your airbrush training.

It was also fab to see both Mr & Mrs Geek on Monday morning even though they looked a little worse for wear but I think they deserve if for winning the award! :thumbsup:

I'm so gutted though cos I didn't get to Mr Geeks seminar as I couldn't get away from the stand. I'm sorry Mr Geek but you'll just have to do it all over again for me!! :D I think it's fair to say though that a good time was had by all and I look forward to speak to you all really soon.
