Gel Competition Jitters

by NAILS Magazine | September 21, 2011

The competition arena keeps on evolving along with the nail industry, and I can just scream for joy that gels are starting to get into competitions. The upcoming NailPro Sacramento show will be my first time entering into a gel competition.

The feelings I have for competing in the gel category are bittersweet. On the one hand I’m excited to be competing in something new that will continue on, so I get to experience it from the beginning, but on the other hand because it’s new there's nothing to compare yourself to.

I’m pretty nervous but very excited about it. I think a lot of people feel the same way and are going to enter into this competition, which is a great thing.

We’ll just have to see what happens.

I’m crossing my fingers that I place. Usually I do but like I said I’ve never competed in gels so I’m hoping my nerves don’t get the best of me.

You can come visit me at the Orly booth this show. I’m officially an Orly educator now and will be using their soak-off gels for this competition. Feel free to stop by and say hi.

Can’t wait to see all the great gel designs, and if you’re thinking of giving it a try, come on out and join the fun.

See you in Sacramento!
