My day at IMATS in NYC April 6, 2013!!

Hey everyone! So sorry I didn't blog in the month of March, it was a crazy month for me but I did constantly post on my Facebook: Nails Never Fails and twitter page @Nailsneverfail Anyway, today's post is different and special! This past weekend I attended the IMATS (International Makeup Art Trade Show) in NYC. For those of you that don't know, this is a huge convention where many cosmetic makeup, special effects makeup, brush, and makeup accessory companies come together under one huge roof. Many companies you might know that were at IMATS were Stila, OCC cosmetics, Inglot, Eye Kandy, and more. You can buy lots of stuff at discounted prices. They also have seminars, makeup tutorials, and contests there too. I went on Saturday which focused more on fantasy makeup and special effects. The place was packed and there were some long lines to shop at certain brands but I had a blast! There were also many beauty bloggers and YouTube guru's there. I met Julie G who is a very famous on YouTube and now has her own nail polish line. She was great! I will make a YouTube video of my haul but for now here are pics of my day at IMATS! I will definitely be going again next year!
