Now I can honestly tell you I was extremely nervous on my way to meet Katie,This was my first face to face interview,Though I have to say as soon as I meet Katie everything melted away she is so cheerful,Happy,Funny & fun to be around she could make any day a cheerful day.After learning a lot of new & fun things about Katie along with seeing many photos of her nail designs I wanted to know which style or pattern is her favorite to do/work with,Katie's answer was anything with Glitter! She is a huge lover of glitter,a large amount of her nail polish from her Nail line "The painted Nail" has glitter & makes your nails look amazing I got to experience & see many cute nails today while visiting her Mobile Spa,Each girl or woman who stepped out of the truck was beyond excited about their new nails & their experience on the truck.One of my favorite styles she can do is add an image to your nail,Do you love Edward Cullen? Well then you can have his face placed onto your nails,you can have an image of anyone or anything on your nails.Now if your anything like me you might be curious how she gets the image onto a finger nail so I asked her, Her response was that she uses a Nail Printer which allows her to make a small digital image based off what you are wanting & apply it to your nail,After learning about it I now hope to one day get this done to my own nails.I was very excited because Lucky little me got to get my own Manicure done on the Spa truck & Katie herself picked out how to paint my nails,I received A silver based coat on all of my nails & then I received Katie Sparkles as a top layer on all of my fingers except my ring finger,My ring finger received a coat of 'Riot' over the silver which turned out perfectly.The nail polish applied smoothly & evenly,I was happy to see that unlike most glitter polishes you actually get Glitter with every brush stroke,I had made the comment that is was like getting smacked in the face with glitter,my nails are super shinny I love them & everyone at my work is jealous,You can see the results of my nails at the end of this post.
Katie was super talkative & is really excited that her shop & her Nail polish line are taking off! I asked Katie if she had any tips or advice for those trying to set up their own business what ever it may be,Katie's response was "Read as many 'Start you own business' books as you can even if they aren't tailored to your business,Take time to talk with other small business owners to help understand how to make your business work & do a lot of research which will in turn help you with your new business".What was Katie's favorite stop on her Mobile tour? All of them she has enjoyed different aspects of every town or city she has visited,I hope she continues doing these small tours because they are fantastic & helps her fans keep connected with her.There is much more wonderful things to say about Katie but not enough blog space to post it all in one post,so I will end this long post off here.If you would like to Fan Katie & The Painted nail on facebook you can do so by clicking HERE,you can also follow her on Twitter or stop by her store to buy some of her nail polish by visiting The Painted Nail.
