WINNER takes it all

The Professional Beauty Nail Competition 2022 saw students, nail professionals and educators compete at the Professional Beauty London show to be named as some of the best nail techs in the business.

For the second year running, Professional Beauty collaborated with Marian Newman and Sue Davies from The Federation of Nail Professionals (FNP) on the prestigious Nail Competition, with eight exciting categories – from UV gel-polish and salon enhancements to media-themed statement press-ons and a seasonal nail art challenge.

The competition took place on both days of the show (April 3–4) and those with the most points across the categories were crowned Student of the Year and Nail Professional of the Year. Some categories were separated into two sections – one for professionals and another for students to compete.
