Welcome to The Nailympics London 2013, the 9th international nail competition held at Olympia Beauty in Kensington, London. The global finger forum where expert judges join with a dedicated administration team to host a unique combination of categories over three days.
As ever, this year’s event adds a fresh new category to excite techs – Salon Nails. This will mix it up quite considerably as all models will be taken to one side and allocated a new tech to sit with for the duration. Therefore, just as it occurs in the salon, the competitor will be enhancing the nails of a stranger. Another new element is that the judging will NOT be blind and the tech must justify exactly what they have chosen to create on the nails. See the rules for a greater insight into this new competition idea.
Soak Off Gel Manicure will be 30 minutes this year – to get a real buzz on the arena and there will be no need for table presentation. This is not a feature of this category for 2013.
This year three new Winner of Winners trophies are to be added to the wealth of medals and trophies already on offer – this will be for the nail artists that ONLY enter Fantasy and Mixed Media Boxed Art categories. Therefore those that only enter ART now have the opportunity to compete for a Division 1, 2 or 3 Winner of Winners trophy.
A new numbering system is to be inaugurated to complement the computer scoring, a more jazzier awards will be presented and with the new category – it promises to be a great event. So, get your competition heart racing, practice your timings and skills, source a model that can partner and support you – and get that sculpting and art brush out – it’s time to compete on the world’s nail stage.
