More than 16,000 beauty professionals visited the Baltic Beauty show in 2008 - making it one of the largest shows in Europe despite being hosted in one of it's smallest countries. With a wide range of competitions - including nail art which I was invited to help judge - but also make up, hairstyling and body art competitions there was always something happening during the three days.
Unfortunately, the economies of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have been hit very hard by the global recession but the show did have a lot of visitors and they seemed happy enough to see that a company had come from Sweden to show them some nail art!
We were helped on the booth by Irina Zamostinchuk our Global Educator who made nail art presentations while I was busy with the competitions.
