The competition featured medals for nail art, salon nails, acrylic and gel enhancements, dip systems, mixed media, team trophies, and more. Three nail professionals from Poland battled for the second Global Cup accolade, awarded based on results achieved in all four Nailympia competitions across 2018 in Texas, Estonia, Sydney, and London.

"Nailympia is all about competiting with consistency and keeping it real, exciting, fair and giving nail professionals a platform to explore and ignite their inner creative," says Alex Fox, Scratch Magazine editor-in-chief.
