I have been MIA since few months. Because of priority change, I don’t get much time for nail arts and blogging. But no matter how busy I get, I try not to miss any opportunity or event related to nails. Few days back I got chance to attend “The Cuccio Effect – Nailinar”. It was an international nail seminar organized by ‘Lure Nails’, Cuccio and Star nails Indian authorized distributor.
Nail industry in India is still at growing stage. Nails are still considered as just small component of beauty industry in India rather than a Nail Industry own its own. Therefore, we rarely find this kind of Exclusive nail events here. Being a nail art lover, this was one of the reason why I was excited to attend the Cuccio Nailinar.
Another exciting factor was – Mr. Tony Cuccio and Cuccio’s International Educator team was going to be part of the event. So it was great opportunity to get updated about International nail trends and new nail art techniques.

Attending India’s largest nailinar was such an amazing learning experience. There were so many activities like Salon management guide by Mr. Cuccio, Nail art fashion show, live demo of 2d, 3d and 4D nail art designs, step by step nail art techniques by International Educators, Nail art competitions, Awards, Lucky draw and much more. As promised to my nail friends, sharing here some of highlights from the Nailinar.

Cuccio’s International Educators: Jacqueline Yeung, Steven Wells, Leyla Vazirova and Pradeep Das presented with many creative 2D, 3D, 4D and 5D nail art designs. Mrs. India Winners and participants walked the ramp wearing those stunning nail designs.
