Setting the standard: NAILYMPIA LONDON 2017
It’s unique, it’s inspirational, exciting, fair and fabulous – Nailympia London saw its largest amount of competitors to date with 968 seats taken from 28 nations – all surprising and delighting with their nail skills and styling.
The 13th Nailympia London was simply sensational. There is no other way to describe this event; it was mammoth and took a tribe of expert judges, the team at Scratch magazine and some extra people in the mix to manifest it – before, during and after the host three-days of its duration.
This year has seen the Nailympia competitions complete a full cycle of three locations starting with Houston, USA in April, moving to Sydney in August and London last month. Its buzz is now global. Its draw is magnetic and its fire is very much alive.
There’s a strong team that works behind the scenes all year round to bring Nailympia to life and a panel of judges that give hours and hours of their time to tweak rules, improve the running and help evolve it to fit our ever-changing nail society.
To have hosted the largest international nail competition floor in the world has left me bursting with joy and excited for the future of this competition. To be forever meeting nail-passionate individuals and working alongside them around the world makes me hungry for more and to see the passion, emotion and desire in the eyes of the competitors brings a career high like no other.
We hosted 99 tables in London and will keep the competition at a flat 100 tables for 2018 – so if you want to compete – get in and register early. There will be two early bird rates and registration will open before the end of 2017.
