I have come home from Greece where I have been training with AME, the new distributor for Ez flow there, Anna and Angelo Colledan not only own 21 Nyxi-Nyxi (Nails-Nails) salons but a large training school, I was honoured to work with Anna who is renowned in Greece for her nails. Both Anna and Angelo are fantastic people from Canada who moved to Greece 10 years ago, with tremendous strength and energy they have their finger on the pulse and are quick to take that leap, even if it s a leap of faith. A trait that can only be admired and even, if I am honest, envied. They showed me a brilliant time and although I was in Greece, I got to sample an Indian (meal, in case you were wondering) that surpasses the UK, I am now spoilt rotten and can’t step foot in my local Tandoori again. Of course the Greek food will always be my first love, I don’t know why perhaps a childhood memory of Stafados and Hallumi in Cyprus. It wasn’t all about food, I did some training for the some of the managers of Nyxi Nxyi salons and then after the show “an introduction to the design powders” seminar for those who purchased kits.
Now let me just say something about the show; I just wish I had more time to walk around it as there was so much to see. I was demonstrating design nails over the weekend,crowds watched as I built flowers out of acrylic and gel, and completely changed the way people think about their product, which was the aim, moving one lady to tears I served my purpose and introducing new possibilities into their craft. I have come home feeling very lucky to have the job I have, I am blessed to be able to fulfil my creative urges and happy to continue to share this with anyone who wants to learn. Until next time.
