Kirsty Meakin wins in Finland
Kirsty Meakin - winner of mixed media and twisted French at IBS Las Vegas 2009 and multiple UK champion, joined us at the FinNail show and won 1st place in the mixed media category using the Iryna Giblett InspirationZ(TM) colored gels and acrylics!
One hand had to be pre-prepared, while the contestants were given 2.5 hours to create the second hand.
Competition judges: Anette Claesson (Naglar i Norden magazine, Sweden), Chantal Schwede (Germany), David Fowler (Germany) and Vitaly Solomonoff (Nail Spa magazine, Russia)
This was the first time we had exhibited in Finland. Global Educator Irina Zamostinchuk and I were kept busy making nail art demonstrations and showing the products to potential partners.
