Guess Who's Going to NY Fashion Week?!

Well one day of it anyway! (As of right now.) I am so excited, I can't even begin to tell you! I am working with The Nail Taxi who has been a part of Fashion Week for quite some time now and she will be using Cult Nails polishes in two of the shows she is working! I just want to scream with the excitement! Actually, I am more excited to meet Cinnamon, the founder of Nail Taxi. I'm kind of geeky like that!

I was thinking about it and it is so funny even to me how my mind works. If I had an option to meet a celebrity or a business person I admire, I would want to meet the business person. I'm just not into the whole celeb gawking thing. I love seeing what they wear and things like that. I enjoy the work that they do, but I don't have a need to know who they are dating, what they are eating, where they do whatever, that stuff just doesn't interest me. Now don't get me wrong, I don't live in a bubble, I hear the news and get wrapped up in what's going on, I admit it, but I am not one of those people that LOVE to read everything they can on a celebrity. But I love reading everything I can on business people I admire. Maybe I hope some of that rubs off on me. LOL!  Anyway, I digress....

My point is, a few years ago I read an article about the Nail Taxi. I thought about how brilliant this lady Cinnamon was and then when I saw she was providing services to Fashion Week, I thought she was even more brilliant. The concept behind her business - They are a mobile nail boutique that brings professional nail services to their clients wherever they may be. They are currently in 10 cities throughout the U.S. and they are in select areas in Canada and the Bahamas. Imagine being at work and not having time to run out and get a pedicure, but having someone come to your office and meet you during your lunch break and providing that service? That is amazing! I wish they were in my area, because I would totally take advantage of a service like that on the regular.

So when I got the opportunity to send Cinnamon my polishes for consideration for some of the shows she does for NYFW, you bet your bottom I jumped at the opportunity! Now I am flying out to NYC to attend the two shows that will be using Cult Nails! I know Cinnamon is probably going to be super busy, but I am excited to see what she does in person and meet the genius behind Nail Taxi! So it is a win win for me! YAY!!! You know I will keep you all up to date, so be sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter and if you have an iPhone follow me on  Instagram, I'm CultNails on there, so you can follow along on my latest adventure next Friday!

Now I am just trying to work my way onto a radio show out of  New York that I have been listening to for years. I hope they accept and ask me to come on the show! Fingers crossed on that one!

Now what manicure to wear....


  1. Good Luck, Maria and Congrats to you!

  2. Congrats! This is HUGE! I can't wait to see your updates on twitter! :)

  3. That is amazing! Congratulations on the great opportunity. Lately I think I've come to agree with the idea that I would rather meet the business person than the celebrity. I think the business person would have greater advice to offer me and would be more down to earth. Good luck at Fashion Week!

  4. How cool that you're going to NYFW and that Cult Nails will be a part of some shows! Nail Taxi sounds like a brilliant idea!
