so you need to keep an eye on the time
while she is working on one hand look at the other for her make sure that there is no snags along the sides
relax your hands

make sure you dont bite or pick the skin around your nails, ask Jess, I did it and got a slap, heap on solar oil and solar butter and have a weekly manicure leading up to comp.

Just do your best to help the competitor relax and spur them on to do their best. When I got a 2nd in tip & overlay at Excel, I only had 25 minutes to do the p&w hand and I would have ran for the exit if it wasn't for Pauline (Forever Nails) who kept at me to keep going. Have fun and make the most of a great learning experience x

  • relax and do as your tech asks.
  • don't tense your hands up ( it's so hard to work on tense hands)
  • when your tech has painted your right hand red hold it out of the way so you don't catch it on anything
  • have fun try keep it light hearted it helps with the tension
  • Slap on that solar oil for the weeks leading up to the comps

Help your tech to relax, keep an eye on the time....have plenty of practice so that you know where she should be at every minute of the comp, if she's getting behind, tell her nicely lol! With practice sessions, you'll both get into a routine of what to do, when to wash of the dust, when to put your polished hand out of the way etc.

Have a look around the arena and see where everyone else is at and what the competition's like lol!

Enjoy it, it's a great introduction for YOUR first comp!

DONT FIDGIT!!!! Even if you move the hand thats not being worked on, it still has an effect on the rest of your body. I nick-named one of my models Bridget the Fidgit!! ( Oh, and don't be offended if your tech gets a bit cross and shouts at you now and then!!) :irked: xx lol
