Mirage Spa Education founder and owner, Cheryl Thibault, is currently in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan as both a judge and attendee, for the Canadian Nailympia Competition. This global competition runs from November 9 – November 11, 2019.
Nailympia, an 18-year old groundbreaking professional global nail competition, prides itself on being a non-biased forum, where products and brands have no bearing on the placing of a competitor. The competition is all about skill and creativity. And all skill levels are covered.
Started in 2001 by three organisations (IBD run by Lee Tomlinson, Dianne D’Agnolo & James Johnson of Too Much Fun and David Daniel & Danny Haile of EZ Flow), Nailympia is simple: to be unbiased and non-product led. In order to create a fair playing field for all, these three nail brands made it clear that competitors could use any system or brand and would be categorised by relevant divisions pertaining to their skill and expertise.
These divisions were to be kept anonymous during each competition and judging, so that each competitor, regardless of skill level, was judged exactly the same. Only after judging, were the competitors then grouped and ranked in their own and correct division. This original ethos remains the same.
