These categories are open to all skill levels – whether you’re just starting out as a student or are a seasoned professional, and will take place in the morning, with the awards ceremony taking place on the Trends and Techniques stage at 4pm.
If you’ve only just decided to enter, there’s no need to worry because registrations will be open from 9:45am in the competition area.
The Manicure category gives entrants the opportunity to show their manicure skills and how they care for the natural nail and surrounding skin. Competitors will complete a standard manicure across both hands with polish on one hand only to include French and dark.
For those interested in the Gel Polish competition, you’ll be required to demonstrate your perfection gel polish application and showcase your skills, including cuticle work and file and shape.
Make sure to read the competition rules ahead of starting your entry because competitors will be disqualified if kits don’t fit the requirements.
