Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
Trophies, prizes, and of course, bragging rights to be “Canada’s Best Nail Tech” are up for grabs while contestants compete in categories like Sculptured Nails or Appliqué Decal Nail Art.
“Im excited to see the mixed media category,” enthuses founding judge Mami, “they are always so crazy and wild, it reminds me of some of the visually stunning clothes you can find at fashion shows that might not wear well in everyday life but are like eye candy that you can’t help but stare at.”
The competition was created by husband and wife team Mami and Patrick Griffin. “There are many competitions in the USA,” says event director Patrick Griffin, “and they have good attendance, but there were two things missing in our minds. Some fun and creative categories that push limits and require tech’s to use new technologies or products and of course a Canadian connection.”
Guest judges Katie Cazorla from the reality TV series “The Nail FIles” - a series centered around nail salons that begins filming season three this spring. Judges include local Vancouver nail product manufacturer directors, chemists and educators.
The live competitions all occur in room 121 at the New Vancouver Convention Center Monday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with an awards ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Excellent photographic and video opportunities.
