The prestigious Professional Beauty Nail Competition returned to to PB London

Competitors battled it out at ExCeL in the Professional Beauty Nail Competition in association with The Federation of Nail Professionals (FNP). Head judge Jacqui O’Sullivan worked tirelessly alongside fellow competition director and judge, Sean O’Sullivan, to deliver one of the bestattended competitions with over 140 entrants.

They were joined by judges Stella Cox, Hazel Dixon, Zsuzsanna Fecsik, Alex Fox, Amie Heary, Andreea Simona-Ignat, Kirsty Meakin, Marian Newman, Jennie Nippard, Andrea Rimmer, Scarlett Senter, Liza Smith and Clare Woodcock.

Jacqui and Sean O’Sullivan commented, “We had insanely talented and committed competitors that showcased their skills and dedication to our industry. Competing is not easy because it takes lots of dedication and practice and we are so grateful for all the people that took part.”

The year’s theme was Zodiac, with students and professionals competing over the two days to test their timing, skill and creativity.
