"The first time I decided to enter the NZ Nail Comps - a few years ago! I was pretty scared and apprehensive.

Putting your work put there to be judged is a huge deal. I found it to be extremely inspiring and the comps really pushed me out of my comfort zone and challenged me to improve in all areas of my nail work. It was easy to enroll and communication with the organisers of the NZ Nail Comps was very good. I would encourage any Nail Tech considering entering, new or experienced to give it a go. You never know your talent until you put it to the test " JILL ROBERTS - NZ

We prioritize maintaining a safe and inspiring space for all Nail Technicians. Our commitment lies in fostering an environment that not only highlights your incredible talent but also supports your growth and success in the industry.

It was a great honor to compete in front of New Zealand's best nail technicians. I found it to be a perfectly organised competition and I felt very well. Good to see all the talented work and passion. I will be there next time too and I hope that this competition will influence the industry."
