MAY 2017 | NAILS MAGAZINE | 63 LIVE CONTESTS NAILYMPIA Held in the U.K., Sydney, and now Houston, this non-biased, non product-related competition accepts techs at all skill levels. "All techs are judged by the same criteria, but are placed through scores in the correct ranking in their correct division," explains organizer and Scratch editor-in-chief Alex Fox. "Come with an open mind, enthusiasm, self-belief, and fire in your belly. Come with the desire to experience something different, life-changing, and challenging," says Fox. Head judge Elaine Watson says it's all about the rules when it comes to competing. For a novice, rules are obviously important, but they're equally as important for a veteran who has competed in another contest with vastly different rules. Watson also advises looking at how rules are interpreted. "With a global competition like Nailympia, the language barrier comes into play. The rules are in English. We put the responsibility of understanding them on the competitor. If English is your second language, you may want to hire an interpreter to be sure you are fully understanding the rules," says Watson. She reminds competitors, "The rules are in place for us to keep a fair competition, but they also are there to guide the competitor into using their skills to create their best possible work."
