Nail Care has been an official SkillsUSA contest since 1998. Like the other categories in this nationwide competition, the contest challenges students in an entire occupational career area, not just a skill set in an occupation. The nail care contest consists of six segments, each of which is about 45 minutes. Similar to a contest like Miss America, entrants compete on a local/state level first, then the winners at that level continue competing until finally working their way up to the national conference.
