Second place is $300, third place is $200. Entrance fee for the contest is $40, with all work to be completed prior to the show. Nails must be sculptured or tipped, and any type of nail painting or designs is allowed. No decals permitted. Tickets for the two day event will be available at the door for $30, a fee that covers entrance for both days.
