I just got back from a last minute event held in Budapest, Hungary, of all places.


I left on Thursday and returned this Monday. At the event, I was asked to participate in a “jury,” which is their term for judging a competition. I actually judged two competitions — one fantasy and one pink-and-white competition. The winner of the pink-and-white category qualified for the International Nail Championship in Dusseldorf that is being held at the end of the month. This was a really great experience to see what kind of nails competitors do in other countries.


In the fantasy competition I saw some amazing things. The competition was on-site and the competitors were given four hours to do the nails. It’s hard to believe they could do some of the things they did in that amount of time. I could tell what type of techniques they were using, but I never thought of using them in such a manner. I wish I could have taken pictures of them to share with you.


But it’s so good to be home and let me tell you, that flight is no joke. With my next trip back to Europe in just two weeks, I don’t think I’ll even be able to recover in time. lol!
