Beauty Expo 2012 was recently held over the weekend at the KL Convention Centre, which is now in its 12th year. It is said to be South East Asia's largest expo and trade platform for beauty and therapeutic professionals, covering a selection of beauty, business, education, trends and competitions from the beauty, hair and nail industry. The expo was held over 4 days, from 28 September to 1 October 2012.
When I stepped into the exhibition hall, I was like "Whoa!" because there were so many people (men as well as women) who were carrying around huge bags of stuff, and quite a number were even towing around luggage cases. There were 5 exhibit zones spread over Halls 1-5, but I mainly stuck around Hall 4 and 5 because these were the hair products, nail products and makeup zones. ^^;;
My main mission of the day was to attend the Sizuka Korea "Photofinger and Gellyfit Professional Nail Art" seminar, with a demo by one of the founders, Kelly Woon. According to the lovely Korean host, she has been in the industry for more than 20 years, and has done the nails of many Korean celebrities! :D

|Hermès inspired Photofinger decal designs (Sorry for the bad pic! There's actually no bump on the nail.)|
For the last design, Ms Kelly did a 3D photo frame art using a Photofinger decal and 3 strands of metallic chains. You can also opt for cameo deco instead of the decal; I personally think that the cameo ones are really pretty! :)

There was a lot of great deals and bargains on beauty and nail stuff there, but due to limited funds (^_^;;) I only came back with some nail polish (4 for RM10) and a hair dryer with cold air (RM38) which I'd been wanting to get for a while.
|4 for RM10 "Dier" nail polish, LOL. The first 3 colours are really nice and opaque though!|
