At the 2014 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference, three college/postsecondary students and three high school students took home gold, silver, and bronze medals. In the nail care category, students were evaluated on a variety of skills, including natural nail care, pedicuring, acrylic application, themed nail art with a written description, a written exam on all aspects of nail care, and an oral presentation. To align the contest with industry practice, nail wrap skills were replaced this year with light-cured gel application skills.
