Pittsburgh has a lot of hard working parents that are either in direct sales, own a business, or are freelancers that are working their asses off to provide for their family.

If by some small chance, they ended up with nails that weren’t horrible, they would be chipped & gross within 2 days max! Then, the solution came in the mail wrapped in a pretty purple package: Jamberry nail wraps! Thank God for this beautiful creation that allows ladies & little princesses to have fabulous nails without harmful chemicals and without any drying time!

Steel City Mom is proud to introduce you to ….. Nicole Geiger Holloway. (Princess Party Mom)

Nicole (Nikki) 31 is a Pittsburgh born married mother of 2 children: Tyler 8 1/2 and Carson 4 1/2.  During the week she works full-time as a dental assistant, where she has worked for over 10 years. On the weekends she transforms into The Ice Queen.

Here is a little back story……. While planning her daughter’s birthday party she tried to find a Princess to attend her party. She found out quickly that it is very expensive. She looked everywhere. Just as she was about to give up, a friend of hers told her why not do it yourself? She decided to ask around to get opinions. Sure enough everyone pointed out how much she resembles Princess Elsa from the movie Frozen. Her daughter like the rest of the world loves Frozen. A princess was born! July 26th was her first party, and she hasn’t stopped since.

Nicole LOVES children and giving to others. She has partnered with Make A Wish, Eat N Park and Stuff A Bus for upcoming events to raise awareness, money and much needed gifts for charity.
