9D GALAXY CAT EYE EFFECT GEL POLISH
GUANGZHOU BLUESKY CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD (HKCEC - 5E-E3A, CHINA)
To be completely up front, I was not intending on visiting BlueSky this year and it is not because I don’t love them, I actually love them too much and wanted to give another company a chance! Alas, I picked the wrong company to demo their gels on me and ended up pretty flustered after a 3 hour manicure that ended in broken nails due to a faulty gel light. This isn’t a game you know?! So I fled to the BlueSky booth and they luckily had the Russian nail goddess, Natalia Polushkina, who bestowed upon me literal fire nails last year. She saved me and my nails, demoing the newest 9D cat eye gel and 3D design and builder gels for me. 9D cat eye gel polish has more possibility and creativity, the effects depend on the magnetic stick you use and the way you use it to make different shapes beyond the available gradient looks of the 3D cat eye gel. The new shape I was into is called a galaxy effect, check the slideshow below for a better look and try it for yourself!
E-Jasi - 4 IN 1 VACUUMING NAIL DRILL & DUST COLLECTOR MACHINE
FOSHAN REHEART COSMETIC CO., LTD (HKCEC - 5E-D3A, CHINA)
Most of the time I pick products that are small enough to be taken with me to photograph, alas, I could not convince anyone to gift me the fabulous $600 drill set, which is totally understandable. I was immediately blown away by this nail drill as soon as it grabbed my attention. How could I not notice all the teeny nail drill bits resting inside the battery pack? Genius!!! I sat down at the booth, wide eyed, proclaiming, “What else can it do?!” The better question is “What can’t it do???” Seriously. A nail drill with a drill bit storage in the battery pack, dust collector, vacuum cleaner, 30,000 RPM, it really is a 4 in 1. I’ve never seen anything like it but after discovering it I cannot imagine ever spending money on a nail drill that doesn’t come with all these bells and whistles that should honestly be the new standard! Time saver and mess reducer would be a grave understatement of the luxury this thing actually affords nail technicians. Sent from nail heaven? I almost wanted to ask the thing, “Did it hurt when you fell?” I bet it did.
