Whether you want to travel the world or stay right in the cozy cocoon of your space, nail competitions are an amazing way to grow as a nail artist! We know that the word "competition" can conjure up adverbs such as "cut-throat" and "fierce" but at Wildflowers, we have an amazing group of professional nail techs who love to inspire, support, and motivate because we know how important it is to stay fired up and on top of our game.
Competitions are a great way to get an unbiased opinion of strengths and weaknesses - and to be honest, most of us are just competing with ourselves to constantly see improvement. Being a part of our team, you'll find that you have opportunities for virtual, turn-in, as well as live, in-person competitions where you can even travel to another country! It's a great way to build relationships and lasting friendships in the industry.
Once a month, we have a 1-hour educational meeting via ZOOM to review competition criteria, answer questions, and even demonstrate techniques. These are taught by award-winning nail judges and competitors. Then two weeks later (again once a month) we have a fun virtual get-together that includes "mock" competitions, and for those working on art pieces, a set apart time to work. We break into small groups and have a fun evening full of chit-chat and laughter as we visit with each other while working. You can think of it as practicing with some of your best friends to keep things light.
