There's no time restrictions.
You can take as long as you like.

Surely it doesn't have to be pink & white:zzz:...salon nails covers a natural look surely? That was what I did most of in the salon!!!

Sounds like an excellent competition Judy!!!

In the salon comp they had at Birmingham it was the pink and whites that made the podium, I know of one Geek who was really disappointed as she did natural looking nails, but it seems that the judging criteria was based on comp nails in salon timings....

maybe we should have some clarification on this Judge Judy!

It can be ANY type of enhancement. I'm working on the judging criteria so that it is fair for everyone.
It's a good opportunity to post pics of work that we do on a day to day basis.
And hopefully it will be fun too.

Is it just one photo of the set? Or do you want a few from different angles?

Can we use nailbed-extension, or we have to make simply pink and white?

A photo of before and after is needed, just from the one angle will be fine.
Custom blending is allowed if you wish to extend the nail bed.

It needs to be a new set mate x

Edited to add: On reflection you may use a rebalance client because it still fits into the salon nails category...so yes you may use them.
