NAILS Next Top Nail Artist 2014 winner Ryoko Garcia shares her thoughts on how winning the nail art contest changed her life.
Vicki loved nails, the nail industry, nail technicians, nail magazines, nail jokes, nail cruises, nail trends, nail memes, nail salons, nail shows, and just about anything nail-related.
On the nail competition floor, couple Emese Koppànyi and Frédéric Edange can be found both paired together and battling each other. The duo married in Las Vegas in 2014, then for their “honeymoon” won the Perfect Match category together. The newlyweds talk about the male-female dynamic in the nail salon and beyond.
Six students earned medals in the nail care category of this annual trade competition.
The nine-year industry veteran from Florida (by way of Japan) dedicated every free moment to completing each of the weekly challenges. Her artistic skills, attention to detail, and love of her craft helped her win the title of NAILS Next Top Nail Artist.
