These beautiful nails earned Sydney, Australia-based nail tech Olga Menshikova a top-place finish in the first online nail competition sponsored by Nail Tips, a forum for techs from Australia and New Zealand. A winner in the professional division, Menshikova is a home-based tech and educator for Nfu.Oh. “I sculpted the nails on forms, using Nfu.Oh colored acrylics,” she says. “Stiletto is my favorite nail shape and almost all my work is focused on creating exclusive designer nails.” The design took her roughly four hours to complete — 1-1/2 hours to do the stiletto nail and 2-1/2 to create the 3-D flowers.

“Olga is a brilliant nail artist, bringing her own unique flair to nails,” says forum moderator Georgina Kuhnast.
