Vivian Valenty (owner & chemist for Dazzle Dry & VB Cosmetics) regarding the 2018 show - "It was the best nails-only show to date! Looking forward to 2019! Of the nail tech only events in the USA that we have been exhibitors, this event is by far the best for the highest number of attendees ready to fill their bags with their Dazzle Dry purchases."
