How to enter PB London’s Nail Competition

We’ve joined forces with the Federation of Nail Professionals’s Marian Newman and Sue Davies for the second year to run our two-day Nail Competition at PB London.

With categories for students, nail professionals (qualified for more than a year), educators and all qualified nail technicians, there’s a category for everyone to show off their skills.

Nail professionals and students can compete in four categories: Salon Enhancements, UV Gel-Polish, Perfect Manicure, and the Nail Art Challenge. Educators can take part in the Educator Skills Challenge. The Liquid & Powder and UV Cured categories are open to all nail professionals.

Not able to compete on the day? You can still take part in the Nail Competition in our two off-the-floor categories: Instagram Photographic and Press-ons in a Box. Both are ’80s punk-themed and open to all qualified nail pros. These categories will be judged at the show, where you can submit your entry during registration on Monday, April 4.

Price: £30 for educators and professionals, £15 for students. 10% discount for FNP members.
