UK Nail Tech competition returns for 2019

The annual UK Nail Tech competition will return to Beauty UK this May, providing nail technicians of all skillsets with the opportunity to showcase their talent to top industry judges.

Taking place on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th May at the NEC, Birmingham, the competition is once again directed by champion nail artist, Denise Wright, and organised by the Guild News team.

There will be 15 categories to choose from – 11 for professional nail techs and four for students – along with the overall UK Nail Tech Awards. The nail art theme chosen for 2019 is ‘Murder Mystery', and is relevant for both photographic competitions and the boxed nail art category.

Winners of the competition will be announced at the awards presentation, which will feature across both days of the exhibition.
