UK Nail Tech 2009 - Winners!

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to post the results from this weekend's UK Nail Tech competition which took place at BeautyUK, NEC Birmingham. We had a fabulous time and I hope all of our competitors enjoyed themselves and learnt from their experiences.

We had a total of 100 entrants this year, which I think is fantastic bearing in mind the current financial climate, and we also had a great turn out for our Boxed Nail Art competition which we ran for the first time, with 30 competitors taking part.

Many thanks to all of our judges who gave their time and expertise for free, and of course to our competition director Denise Wright and her team - Alison Gulliver and Sarah Bright. Thanks also to our sponsors: The Beauty Partnership, Odyssey Nail Systems, Safe Salons and Associated Beauty Therapists, who provided over £3,000 worth of prizes plus goody bags and of course the wonderful UK Nail Tech crystal trophies which everyone wants to take home.
