After its successful 2022 debut, Nailympia Germany nail competition returns to Beauty Düsseldorf for 2023.

Nailympia is the leading and most prestigious global nail tech competition worldwide. We look forward to welcoming international top nail designers to Düsseldorf again,” says Stefanie Lo Re of Signature Nail International (SNI), who has again taken over the organisation of Nailympia Germany.

At Nailympia, products and brands have no influence on participants’ placement. This international competition is above all about skills, dexterity and creativity.

The scoring system, which has developed and honed over the course of time, stays true to its original concept: all competitions are rated blindly, in other words, the jury members do not know whose work they are assessing. This ensures fair and consistent scoring, and means that a contestant in Division 1 can win with a higher score than in the other Divisions. The individual Divisions cater to all skills levels of nail designers from beginners to professionals.

Competitions for Novice, Apprentice and Master will be held in the following categories on the stage in Hall 12:

  • Gel Polish Manicure
  • Gel Tip/Overlay
  • Gel Sculpting
  • Reality Nail Art
  • Salon Nails
  • Acrylic Tip/Overlay
  • Acrylic Sculpting
  • Joy of Nails
  • Stiletto Nails
  • French Twist 5 Shape Challenge

Hosted by Beauty Düsseldorf, a leading industry expo for the cosmetics, foot, nail, wellness and spa sectors, the participating exhibitors and brands will present innovations, trends and new products from the sector. The ranges on display will be accompanied by a programme of wide and varied side events.

The highlights of this trade fair include live competitions on the stages. In the presence of a knowledgeable audience international professionals and young talents compete with each other in various make-up and nail tech categories. Here suspense, cheers and tears of joy and the high art of make-up and/or nail design are guaranteed. With immediate effect, all interested parties can now submit their applications for participation in the European Make-up Awards and Nailympia Germany again.
