Hello to all our faithful readers. Nailpassion is back after nearly a year away, and we are back with a new format. We will publish monthly on the first of the month and we'll cover events and happenings in the nail word that have occurred since the previous issue.
If you have contributions to be published please send them to the Editor, the email address is on the right.
TV finally seems to be catching up with nails, but not necessarily in a good way. There are two shows that have come to our attention; Nail'd It! and The Nail Files.
The pitch: "The idea is for a show called Nail'd It!, a nail tech elimination competition format where the main aim is to place so much decoration and distraction on the nails that you can't see the nails at all. Our Unique Selling Point (USP) is that we are going to pump helium into the A/C so that everyone involved has an annoying squeaky voice. Even the male judge!"
The Nail Files
The Nail Files is more of a "Housewives of..." based show with a loose nail salon connection. For the nail fan there is not much to see but at least nails are becoming more mainstream.

For those that need a reminder of her three YouTube channels they are:
