Nail Design Trends and Supplies
Calling all Nail Techs! Here’s the event for you offering ‘Nothing but Nails’ the weekend of July 11-13, 2015. You won’t find any apparel, jewelry, or hair stuff at the Nail Tech Event of the Smokies being held at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. You’ll find plenty of opportunities to get up-to-date on all the latest trends in acrylic and gel nails, see new nail design techniques, purchase nail supplies from numerous vendors, and win door prizes!
If you really want to show off your skills, enter the two nail design competitions. One is a Salon Success single-hand competition and the second is 3D Nail Art. Visit online event registration information, schedule of events, and competition details.
“A yearly event held in the Smoky Mountains that’s dedicated to bringing together nail techs, educators, & nail companies for the purpose of promoting education & product awareness.”
Although the Nail Tech Event offers optional workshops on both the Saturday before and Monday after, the main event is held only on Sunday. That’ll leave you with time to enjoy all that the Smoky Mountains area has to offer.
Hungry? Whether you’re looking for pizza at the Mellow Mushroom, a nice dinner at the Park Grill, fancy fondue at the Melting Pot, or a heaping plate of pancakes at The Pancake Pantry, there are many restaurants in Gatlinburg within walking distance of the Convention Center.
If you’re going to make an entire weekend out of it, stay in one of the many cabins available in the Gatlinburg area. With numerous cabin rentals to choose from, the options allow you to be centrally located so that you can take advantage of the attractions in Gatlinburg or the stores at Tanger Outlets in Sevierville.
Plan to spend several hours shopping, shopping, shopping. Snag all the great deals at the hundreds of stores. Your first stop should be at Shopper Services, located next to the Gymboree Outlet, to pick up your coupon book. No matter what you’re looking to find, there’s probably a special deal somewhere.
With all the eating, the shopping, and most importantly, the nails, it’ll definitely be a Gatlinburg weekend to remember!
