Six students earned medals in the nail care category of this annual trade competition.
Students are tested on all aspects of nail care.
At the 2014 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference, three college/postsecondary students and three high school students took home gold, silver, and bronze medals. In the nail care category, students were evaluated on a variety of skills, including natural nail care, pedicuring, acrylic application, themed nail art with a written description, a written exam on all aspects of nail care, and an oral presentation. To align the contest with industry practice, nail wrap skills were replaced this year with light-cured gel application skills.
