Entry for the UK Nail Tech 2017 competition is now open.

UK Nail Tech 2017 returns on Sunday 21st and Monday 22nd May as part of the annual Beauty UK Show, held at the NEC, Birmingham. The competition offers nail technicians currently working or studying in the UK to enter their work in either the Top Tech competition or the Student competition, with a total of 13 categories across the two.

With a Vintage theme this year, competitors are asked to get creative with their entries, which will be considered by a panel of industry expert judges, with an Awards Presentation held at the Beauty UK event.

All applications for entry should be received by Friday 5th May. Full competition rules and guidance for digital submission can be found online.
