My Feature in the Jan. issue of Nails Magazine

Hey y'all.  I can't believe I forgot to post about this here.  I'm ashamed of myself actually.  I've known about this for a few months and I've been holding it in until it came out.  I was one of 5 featured blogger nail professionals in the January issue of Nails Magazine.  It is such a HUGE honor for me.  Especially being among some of my favorite nail bloggers.  You can view the whole article online HERE

This is such a huge deal for me.  I cried a little when my copy came in the mail lol.  I got a WHOLE PAGE!!!!  I mean really, how freaking amazing is this?  I feel so proud and so humbled at the same time.  Me, little old me, no body special, in a major trade publication.  Ahhhh, I can't even begin to describe it lol. It's just awesome! 

The 2014 January Issue is named "The Reader Written Issue".  The cover was picked from a contest they did.  The nail tech that won with this puzzle piece mani is Miki Nakano from Tokyo.  She did an amazing job don't you think? 

Ahhh, here's my page.  I'm on page 173.  Honestly, I really expected a short little blurb about me.  I died when I saw it lol.  My kids probably thought I had lost my mind.  I can't wait to get it framed.  My hubby is taking on that task, he's really good at that kind of thing. 

A screen shot of my blog even made it on the table contents.  A minor thing but still, that's MINE and it's pretty stinkin' exciting. 

It's hard to believe that just a year ago I hadn't even started my nail course yet.  Goodness, time really does fly when you're having fun huh?  ;) 

Thanks so much for reading today.  XOXO  :)
