Cosmoprof: 31 July 2011

Okay, let me tell you, it's been insane around here.  On top of meeting some wonderful bloggers, I've been seeing some amazing things going on in the beauty world.  I tried to spend today checking out EVERYTHING so I could narrow it down over the rest of my stay, but ha, yeah that didn't happen.

As soon as I got registered, I ran into Jen of The PolishAholic and she and I decided to go exploring.  One of our first stops was AII where I saw the upcoming China Glaze polishes "Haunting" for Halloween 2011, "Let It Snow" Winter 2011, "Eye Candy 3-D Glitters" coming out in late 2011 and "ElectroPop" Spring 2012.  I'm telling you, this stuff looked AMAZING.

I met up with Kimmi from the Plastic Diaries and was honored to attend her interview with Suzi from OPI.  You'll have to check Kimmi's blog for her interview coming up but Suzi was absolutely amazing.  She was very down to earth and humble.

Yes, I look like a goober.  I literally had goosebumps as Suzi had her arm around me.

I also grabbed a few pictures of upcoming collections.

Afterwards, Kimmi and I headed to CND where we got to see the new Shellac colors which includes a flakie!

Yes, a flakie!

Then we saw BeautyJudy getting her toes Shellaced.  
Finally we headed over to NUBAR and the Painted Nail and there was Katie from the Nail Files in all her glory!
She is every bit lovely in person - she immediately gave me a huge hug.  I nearly passed out in excitement.  I'm actually having dinner with her in about 2 hours!!!

Two companies I'd like to spotlight that I learned about today - Cyclic and tiara.

Cyclic is a big-3 free polish with no chemical smell.  It's safe for children and you can actually add your own perfume into the bottle - which all the bottles are crystal perfume bottles.  It lasts just as long as regular nail polish, dries just as quick and you remove it with either acetone or Cyclic remover.  You can visit their website more product details.

tiara is a line of false nails that will now be carried in the US that features tons of very delicate and intricate artwork.
They have many different lines, styles, shapes, patterns and colors.  One of the best things is that they are reusable and can last anywhere from 6-8 weeks.

This is Hugo, the US importer, and he can help you with whatever style you're looking for.  Their warehouse is located in Los Angeles and along with their website, they will be open for business in September 2011. Update: Their business opened January 2012.

Well I'm pretty well worn out already but this is Vegas and nothing stands still.  I'll have more for you tomorrow including deborah lippmann and Jesse's Girl Cosmetics!
