We are searching for the newest nail tech talent in the UK.

Nails with Style Contest

We are looking for undiscovered nail professionals to showcase their work and become recognised in the UK not only to the nail tech community but also the fashion focused public. The main competition is open to all nails techs except for those who have been placed in a UK competition before, who educate, who have had work published before on a professional basis or who works for a nail-tech brand. Therefore you do not need to feel that you are competing against established nail techs.

Our mission

We are running this contest to discover new UK nail talent, which means the competition is open to everyone, whether you are at the beginning of your nail career or an established nail tech. We also want this contest to be a way for everyone to learn more, push themselves and grow in their work.  It will bring an amazing opportunity to learn from each other, to see the standard you are at now, the standard you can work towards and the amazing possibilities that you may never have known were in the industry.

How to enter?

Before you start: Familiarize yourself with the competition rules.

UPDATE: You are currently reading the competition homepage, not the rules or T’s and C’s.
The competition rules can be found here: http://nailswithstyle.co.uk/terms-and-conditions/

This is the most important step. Imagine the situation: you have collected the most votes with an amazing photo but you have not read the rules (eg. so you have not emailed across a photo from the top & side of the same set of nails) This could result in being disqualified from the competition. We do not want this to happen so please read the rules first.

For each entry we require 4 photos:

Make sure that the four photos you enter with must be of the same set of nail extension.

1st: “creative composition” (The one that you’ll upload to the contest.)

Only one rule for this: at least 1 hand with your competition nails in the composition.
Retouching is allowed & recommended, even the nails can be retouched.
No other rules: Be Creative!
This will compete on facebook!
