“Don’t learn a lesson at the competition, get all your questions clarified beforehand to ensure a more satisfying experience.”
Nailympics Judging Basics
- In keeping with the Nailympics international status, every effort is made to ensure judges are a mix from around the world.
- In the event of a tie, the head judge’s score (Lysa Comfort) will determine the place.
- Judges meet prior to the competitions starting so all are clear on what they are judging and their responsibilities.
- The judging is blind, meaning only the models’ hands will be seen by each judge – with the exception of the Fantasy Nail Art competition.
- Models will be identified by numbers randomly assigned on the competition floor.
- Judges do not judge every aspect of the set.
- Judges will make every effort to be available for any questions /critique afterwards. (Not guaranteed)
- Judging sheets are made available to competitors after the awards ceremony.
- Any judging sheets not picked up after the competition will be sent out by the Nailympics administration team after the event.
- For any ties falling below 10th place will simply be listed in alphabetical order.
- Please read all of the rules and get clarification on any you are not 100% certain of, this is your responsibility.
- If you compete and are judged with a deduction due to a rule that you did not interpret the way it was meant, it’s too late to change this at the competition.
Each judge is given 3-4 points out of 10 to judge. This way they can concentrate on a few aspects of the nails, rather than all.
Judge’s decisions are final and all entries are judged on the exact same criteria.
