1st place: Fei Li, Bendigo, Victoria, Australia
2nd place: Emily Husdell, Nails by Emily, Adelaide, South Australia
3rd place: Sam Goddard, Sam’s Nails, Farrer, Australian Capital Territory, Australia

These intricate designs, made from acrylic nail products, were winners of a Design-A-Corset Competition recently held in Australia. “Acrylic design is such a huge part of our industry and a personal passion of mine,” says Viv Simmonds of VIVid Nail & Beaute and Nfu.Oh Australia. “When we decided to run a competition, we wanted to do something that was a bit different and fun. Rather than using tips or photo submissions, we thought the corset by Nfu.Oh Nail Creations was a perfect option.”

The 22 entries were judged on originality, color, workmanship, complexity, and overall impression. To view all of the finalists, visit
