What’s the difference between a “competition nail” and a “client nail”?

Q.

What’s the difference between a “competition nail” and a “client nail”? Is it the length? the C-curve? the thickness?

A.

The difference is the thickness! The look, shape, C-curves, and depth of smile lines all can be done in both places, but the thickness is what sets them apart most. When making a salon nail for a client, you must make it to wear and hold up to everyday life. This is done with the thickness of about one to two credit cards. In doing a competition nail, you are making it for looks only. This is done with the thickness of a piece of paper. — John Hauk has ranked in the top five of NAILS Top 25 competitors’ list since 2001.
