Last week, I attended the Get Pretty event at the Polish Bar of Brooklyn (PBB) at their Prospect Heights location.

This cute location is trend driven, where they keep up with all the latest styles/trends in the nail art world.

Claire from Fashion Bomb Daily cohosted this event and donations were made to the local breast cancer society chapter.  I’ve been reading Claire’s blog for years!

PBB was founded 5 years ago by a former M.A.C. makeup artist, Tricialee. She is joined by 2 other artists in managing their other location in Clinton Hill.

This was a great event!  I got a chance to see a salon that I had heard about but hadn’t had a chance to visit.  I also met some wonderful bloggers (makeup, natural hair, PR). The cupcakes and cake pops were delish and we enjoyed complimentary mini manicures, massages and makeup consultations. Fun was had by all!!   Shoutout to all those that I have met!!!

When you get a chance, check out PBB in Brooklyn.  Here’s the link for more information!
