Finding the Fun, Even in Nail-Biting Times

Saturday 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
The Inn at Virginia Tech - Blacksburg

10th Annual Women's Fall Event at The Inn at Virginia Tech

In this fun-filled, motivating presentation you will learn:

  • That just as a “base coat” provides a foundation for healthy, happy nails, clarity about what you want is the foundation for personal and professional success
  • How trying new nail colors—from mild to wild—can increase your confidence in taking risks and navigating change
  • How a “top coat” of positivity keeps gratitude and laughter top of mind so you can stay energized, even when “chip happens”

In today’s nail-biting times, it’s easy to let stress, fear, and frustration affect your health and success.

“Stop biting your nails and start living like your nail color,” says Mary Foley, author of the Amazon bestseller Live Like Your Nail Color, Even if You Have Naked Nails.

Living like your nail color may sound like a fluffy, female, feel-good phrase, but it’s so much more than making your nails look pretty.

For more information or to register, please call Carilion Clinic at 800-422-8482.

Gift bags and door prizes included.
