Nail competitions at the Pro Beauty shows

The FNP partnered with Professional Beauty in 2021 to host the nail competitions at the Pro Beauty shows. The Nail Competitions are for Nail professionals and students who want to compete and show off their skills while rewarding entrants with valuable networking and learning opportunities. Judged by industry professionals, this is a chance for entrants to display their skills and be seen by the best in the business.
