This year’s NAILS Cover Tech competition was truly international in scope. Our winner, Kelly-Marie Daly, hails from County Cork in Ireland, and our three runners-up represent Canada, the United States, and Slovenia. From a huge number of entries, NAILS’ editors managed to select 10 finalists. Then it was NAILS’ readers chance to weigh in and make the final decision. It was a close race, and Daly’s rounded stilettos came up the winner.
Congratulations to all 10 finalists, especially first runner-up Nicole Lalonde of Hidden Beauty in Thompson, Manitoba, Canada, second runner-up Jamie Ritchey of Profiles 3 in Ft. Myers, Fla., and third runner-up Nina Ilovar of Nillandia in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Thank you to everyone for all of the wonderful entries.
