  • September 28, 2010

The London Nailympics was a big success this year. On September 19-20, some of the best nail artists in the world gathered to take part in the 6th annual London Nailympics contest at the Olympia Beauty Show in London, England. The event has been gaining in popularity and even garnered some interest from mainstream London press, with this recent article by David Wilkes in Mail Online, a British online news site.

 

The competition had 354 competitors from 24 different countries this year, and the show itself had more than 30,000 attendees.

 

An Italian competitor named Carmelina Gandolfo, 32, explained why the Nailympics are so important to international nail artists. “This is one of the most important competitions in the world,” she said. “You come to demonstrate your skill and show what your country can offer.”
