America’s Beauty Show has added International Nail Technician of the Year as a category of its Global Image Awards. Judged by a panel of esteemed nail techs, the nail category fuses nails and fashion, celebrating the technical prowess and artistic ability of nail technicians worldwide. Entrants should complete two images for entry. One image will feature only the model’s hands, while the second should integrate hair, makeup, and fashion styling. Entries should demonstrate harmony between styling, props, and the artistry of nails themselves.

One winner of the nail category will receive the ABS Global Image Award trophy, which will be presented during the Beauty Changes Lives event on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at the Art Institute. The recipient will also gain recognition by their peers on Cosmetologists Chicago’s social media and blog, have images featured on, and receive media support through Cosmetologists Chicago public relations.
