ART STILETTO. PROFI

Task: The participant should model the nails of stillet shape, combining in the competitive work his/her skills in various techniques of the nails decoration and design and technical aspects of modeling. Competitive works will be evaluated based on a combination of technical and artistic criteria. Nail modeling should be performed on forms. The work time for the competitors is 150 minutes. During this time, the participant should model the nails of stillet shape with aquarium design and, if desired, with a surface design on one hand of the model, the second hand should be modeled in advance and ready before the start of the competition by 100%.

REQUIREMENTS:

1. Each participant must have his/her own model for work. Nails of the model, with which the participant works in the competition field, should not have any coatings and remains of artificial material. Manicure can be done in advance.

2. Before the start of the competition hands of the models must be checked by a technical judge with filling of special "nail-check" sheets, where initial state of the nails and cuticle are noted.

3. If any deviations are detected, the technical judge fixes them in the "nail-check" sheets and notifies the judicial panel about these issues.

4. It is allowed to use a milling machine.

5. For modeling both acrylic and gel technology can be used - on the choice of the participant. It is also possible to combine technologies.

6. It is allowed to use colored gels, acrylics, gel-paints, various decorations for nail art (rhinestones, brooches, spangles, feathers, chains, except for Fimo and ready-made 3D ornaments).

7. Design should be both aquarium and on the surface of the nails, without restrictions, but not more than 5 mm over the surface of the nail. The aquarium design should occupy not less than 50% of the entire composition. French modeling (decorative French) may be performed, but it will not be evaluated separately (however, in the case of mistakes made in the smile line zone, points for design smoothness may be deducted).

8. Gel finish coating or ordinary finish coating should be applied. 

9. The model must have an image in accordance with the style chosen by the participant (clothing, hairstyle, make-up, accessories). The image should be prepared in advance. The ready image presented in the work within this nomination (namely: costume, key accessories and ornaments) should not be used earlier on any championships, contests, festivals, projects, posters, etc. Otherwise, the work will be disqualified and withdrawn from participation in the competition without return of the entrance fee for participation.

It is forbidden: to prepare forms and/or to put them on the fingers of the model before the start of the competition; it is forbidden to use stickers, sliders, ready-made factory figures, any other prepared in advance design elements.
