Getting the hang of this whole blogging thing….it’s taking awhile.  I have no problems with my clients, but to get to my own stuff takes some time!  With all that said…this post has been in the works for you for some time!  It’s really a post for all my Local Lovelies with a little giveaway thrown in!

So, here’s the question….do you love to have beautiful nails and toes?  I know I do!  I love the process of it all…thinking about what color, design/no design, minx, shellac and then there’s the MASSAGE!!!!  Oh the massage, it’s like my feet melt.

Sit back, relax and meet Carolyn Mullane of The Polished Edge!

I met Carolyn years ago….a lifetime really.  Before husbands, babies, and real life happened!  We became fast friends as I was referred to her to do my nails.  As you can imagine, I was delighted when I walked into her salon one day and found her reading The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy!  Carolyn was having a baby and I was loosing my nail gal!  I mourned that loss for years!  Oh, Carolyn and I remained friends, good friends, but I said good-bye to my pretty nails!

For years I begged, pleaded and prodded Carolyn to get back into the nail business but she was happy being at home with her now 2 boys.  Then the BIG day came!  Carolyn announced she was going to hang her license again, she couldn’t stop her love affair with nail polish!  Over the next few days The Polished Edge was born!

Carolyn set up her studio in a pretty little corner of her kitchen in her home in Chandler, AZ!  It’s calm, inviting and fun!  She sets appointments around her kids schedules and allows Mommy’s to bring their kids over and play in her playroom, that is full of toys!  It’s the perfect situation for those Mommy’s that don’t have childcare .  And for Mommy’s like me, with little girls….she will paint their little nails too!  (*This being a great bribe to “play nice while Mommy gets her nails done”!)

I’m going to throw it out there….you will LOVE Carolyn!  You’ll love her space, her studio, and just her presence.

Therefore I’m going to a free manicure and pedicure to The Polished Edge!
