Am I the only one who has been obsessed with nails lately? My obsession really began a couple year’s ago when Rihanna’s minx nails got a whole lot of attention. Remember that? I think it was right around the VMAs after the infamous CB incident? Any way it was a couple years back, but for some reason her minx nails turned on a light in me and I’ve been a nail art fan ever since.
Well, this past Tuesday, Sept 3rd one of my blog ambassador pals for Fro Fashion Week, P-Roy the editor of Steel Feather Lace Elephant dot com announced that she’d be hosting an event during Fro Fashion Week at The Polish Bar in Brooklyn.
Y’all when I tell you I saw P-Roy’s post about the event on Twitter I was at a ten – no lie!
Why? Two reasons:
1. First of all finding a creditable and reliable nail salon ain’t easy. I can think of more than one occasion when I was out of town on business, needed to get my nails done and up with a mediocre nail job. Not every salon has great color selection or nail technicians that can create art. So I was excited about going to a salon recommended by P-Roy who happens to also be an image consultant. I knew she wouldn’t attach her name to something that was less than fab.
2. Secondly, The Polish Bar is a black female owned establishment. It was the first beauty bar in Brooklyn and it was opened by Tricia Lee back in 2006. It’s a staple in the community and since opening the Brooklyn location Tricia Lee has opened two other locations. I love support entrepreneurs so learning that the spot was locally owned had be sold.
So with my fingers in dire need of a polish refresh I kicked off Fro Fashion Week with PRoy at her Polish Bar event. To see my nails and photos from the event simply scroll down.
