Usually when reporting our various contest results, we tell you how tough it was for the judges to come to a consensus, and usually that’s the case. But not when it comes to this year’s Cover Tech Contest. Our panel of judges unanimously selected the tasty concoction you see on our cover as their favorite.We can thank Ami Seki of Tout Soleil salon in Tokyo for the appealing image of the sugar-rimmed nails and cocktail glass.
The artistry of the other finalists dazzled us as well. Congratulations to first runner-up Debbie Brew of Mentor, Ohio; second runner-up Doan Hoelscher of Fort Collins, Colo., and third runner-up Ayano Suzuki of Tokyo.
