Hi there,

Just looked at this weeks copy of ok mag and there was an article regarding Paula Abdul visiting a nail salon in the usa. She said that the technician who performed the manicure pushed her cuticles really back and cut her quite bad, Paula then states that she then got an infection and had to have her nail removed it was that bad:( . The salon have said that they didnot perform the manicure, but Paula has said that she is going to sue them!!!!!!!!!!!!!i'm quite intrested to hear the outcome, so if anyone hears anything.........keep me posted.

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

we need to be hearing some positive really good feedback in these magazines, not just the Nail Profession magazines that we all see. People just focus on the bad press - cant we counteract this ?????

Do any of the big Nail companies do articles (big) in all the regular magazines that everyday people read ? not just product related ? but along the lines of some of the stuff in our nail mags ??

Id really like to start seeing some great news and feedback re "qualified" nail technicians and some marketing / feedback / pics on the "good" companies such as Creative, EzFlow etc to name only a couple

?????????? arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Hi Amanda (again!)

I'm doing my best! I quoted every month in something or another (This month Tatler, Marie Claire and several others). I try to promote the industry but on the whole the journos are so sceptical (see "Steaming" and "media help please")

The prof nail companies don't advertise in the nationals because it is so prohibitavely expensive. Companies like Creative and OPI do a great job at PR so many of their products will get mentioned but it is difficult for them as, again, journos are sceptical. It's only things like oil and polish that get mentioned.
