NAILPRO Pasadena, Southern California's Original
Nails-Only Trade Show, Returns April 21 with a
Guinness World Records "Fastest Nails" Event

Creative Age Publications hosts the return of NAILPRO Pasadena, Southern California's original nails-only trade show, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., April 21, 2013, at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA.

NAILPRO is the flagship trade publication from Creative Age for nail technicians and nail salon owners and managers.

NAILPRO Shows comes to Pasadena fresh off the success and record attendance of NAILPRO Sacramento in September 2012. NAILPRO Pasadena features a full day of nail education, including technical classes from educators representing the industry’s major brands. Exhibitors showcase professional nail and salon products, tools, equipment, and retail items from dozens of the industry’s leading suppliers. In addition, NAILPRO Hands-On Workshops offers a full day of nail education on Monday, April 22.

The NAILPRO Competitions enjoy a surprising and exciting event, "Guinness Book of World Records Certified Fastest Set of Acrylic Sculptured Nails," which will be documented according to strict standards of the Guinness World Records organization. Nail technicians will compete to finish a set of pink-and-white acrylic nail enhancements as fast as possible using forms only (add-on tips are not allowed). Pink-and-whites refer to the pink at the base of the nail and the white on the tip. The white refers to the free edge length, which is achieved by sculpting with white acrylic nail enhancement products.

General admission tickets are $25 each, or $20 each when purchasing two or more, and $15 for students. Prices good until April 5, 2013. Nail professionals enrolling in at least one half-day session of NAILPRO Hands-On Workshops Monday, April 22 (for $50) receive a free general admission ticket to NAILPRO Pasadena on Sunday. Onsite general admission tickets are $30 each, or $25 for two or more, and $20 for students. No children under 12 are allowed on the show floor.
