I am soooo excited to share these pics I can hardly type!!! As of last Thursday I can officially scratch one more thing off my vision board! Quick rewind to a few months ago… I cannot stress how incredibly rewarding blogging has been to me! The ability to connect with like minded individuals is absolutely priceless. I got the bright idea to host a polish party here in DC after my blogging “boo” Sereeda of Eclechick hosted a similar event in her hometown. After weeks of planning, phone calls, and countless emails Pretty in Paint with S.E.C was born! Sponsored by Qream Liqueur, myself along with Sereeda and Sondra of Chic Chocolate hosted the “Pretty In Paint” polish party!
Even though the event sold out very quickly I was so surprised and excited to see all of the nail art enthusiasts come out to Maisie Dunbar Spa Lounge in Silver Spring, Maryland for an evening of manicures, cocktails, girl talk and cupcakes!
Pretty in Paint guests enjoyed
free99 complimentary manicures and nail art from the uber talented and creative nail artists from Maisie Dunbar Spa, Her Nails Rock, and Mikal’s Beloved Nails. In between mani’s and beauty giveaways, party guest sipped on Qream cocktails and cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes and Kakewalk Cupcakes.
With my faves Michelle and Kimee of neonV mag! Thanks for the beat down!
