After dabbling in competitions for years, nail tech Allison Baker started this year out with gusto by keeping her competition schedule full and her product applications perfect.

One of our industry’s top competitors, Azumi Kanene Williams says time constraints and temperature are her greatest challenges in the competition arena.
