  • Competitors are required to use professional products. NO glitter, coloured powder, additives etc to be used – judges are looking for the most natural set of nails that suit the hand shape and skin tone.
  • Camouflage powders or gels can be used if appropriate for the ‘client’.
  • No embellishment or encapsulation – judges want to see natural looking enhancements in any shape. The competitor is to choose the most relevant shape to suit the fingers and nail condition.
  • Cleansing and moisturising products (oils, creams, lotions, etc) are allowed. Excessive use of oil is not permitted. Judges will deduct points for excess oil.
  • The nail enhancements must be finished in a natural or pink & white style – gel top coats and sealants are allowed. No nail polish colour.
  • NOTE – Extra points are awarded for smile lines or a beautifully blended pink & white – baby boomer / ombré.
  • The work must be original, which has not been previously published.
  • NOTE – Can you see the nails and design clearly? Many points are lost if the judges cannot see the nails clearly.

  • Must be in colour.
  • A written additional work description is not required. Create a professional photo for judges, so that they would like to choose you as their master!
