First Step Of Entering A Nail Competition

If you've made the significant decision to enter a nail competition, the next crucial step is to thoroughly read the rules. Rules vary for each nail competition, so it's imperative to review them carefully. This is particularly important as competition organizers often update and adjust the rules annually to reflect industry trends. Additionally, if available, it's beneficial to study the score sheets. These sheets clearly outline where points are allocated, enabling you to identify areas where the most points can be gained. This insight will aid you in devising a practice schedule and focusing your efforts effectively.

Wait to Nip!

When working on your client around the cuticle area, it's common for the skin to become thin. To prevent any potential injury to the client, it's advisable to wait before using nippers. Refrain from removing any hangnails or dry skin until the service is complete and all filing has been finished.

Perfect Fine Lines

If you're having trouble achieving fine, consistent lines with your gel polish or paint, it might be due to how you load your brush. Instead of dipping the brush in and pulling it out, which can create a blob of paint, try grabbing the tip of your brush and streaking it all the way down the length of the paint. This method ensures that the brush is evenly loaded with paint, preventing it from balling up at one end and allowing you to achieve precise, clean, crisp lines with your fine liner brush.
