Published 23rd Apr 2024 by Karina Corbett

Professional Beauty & Hair 2024 took place at the RDS in Dublin on 21-22 April and among the show’s highlights were the Nail Competitions.

Hosted by the Federation of Nail Professionals (FNP) and sponsored by Glitterbels, the judges were blown away by the amazing talent that was seen over the two days.

“Dublin is always a great show and competition and we love coming over to Ireland,” said Jacqui O’Sullivan, competition director and head judge. “I have had the pleasure of seeing fabulous nail artists working to raise their skills and profile, all competing to be the best they can be.

“A big thank you to Kirsty Meakin, Amie Heary, Daniela Orlea, Katarzyna Kruszynska, Caroline Carrick, Adriana Onofrei, Emma Harris, our guest judge for manicure Kamila Borowiec, plus our fabulous online judges Hazel Dixon, Scarlett Senter and Alex Fox. We couldn’t do what we do without our judges – they give advice, time and guidance to all our competitors.”
