Nail Design 2019

NASVETI PRED TEKMOVANJEM

Useful tips before the Competition

 

1. Izkušnje so izjemen učitelj

Pogovor s tekmovalci

Morda tega niste vedeli, a v Sloveniji je že precej manikerk, ki so se že udeležile preteklih tekmovanj nohtov - tudi mednarodnih.

Kar nekaj jih najdete na socialnih omrežjih in z veseljem rade delijo svoje osebne izkušnje.

 

1. Experience is a great teacher

talk to former competitors

Perhaps you haven’t heard, but there are many nail technicians in Slovenia, that have already participated in past nail competitions – even on an international scale!

You can find them on different social media. They are mostly happy to share their personal experience.

 

2. Delajte s tem, kar poznate

GLAVNO VLOGO IGRA MATERIAL

Na trgu obstaja veliko različnih materialov, ki pa se med sabo lahko precej razlikujejo po kakovosti in načinu uporabe. Kaj pretehta pri izbiri sistema oz. materiala, ki ga boste uporabili na samem tekmovanju?

 

Pomembno je, da greste na tekmovanje z materialom, ki ga redno uporabljate in ga dobro poznate. Če boste tik pred zdajci iskali nov material, boste pod velikim stresom. Dobro utečena rutina ter veliko vadbe s kakovostnim materialom bo tekmovalki dal občutek samozavesti in odločnosti.

 

2. Work with what you know

Choose the right material

There are many different materials on the market and most of them variate in quality and usage. What aspects should be considered while choosing a system or material to use on the competition?

The most important thing is to compete with the material you regularly use and are familiar with. If you start looking for a new material right before the competition, you will be under a lot of unneeded stress. A well-established routine with lots of practice with quality materials gives the competitor a sense of self-esteem and determination.

 

3. platno, na katerega boste ustvarili mojstrovino

IZBERITE DOBER MODEL

Ste že našli svoj model za tekmovanje? Ga še vedno mrzlično iščete?

Pri izbiri modela za tekmovanje je zelo pomembno vedeti, kakšne so telesne karakteristike dobrega modela za nohte. Zakaj? Sodniki bodo na modelu ocenjevali in videli le roke modela.

 

Izberite si model brez napak ali anomalij oz. poškodb naravnega nohta ter kožice in kože na rokah, saj lahko zaradi tega izgubite kakšno točko. Izogibajte se modelov s kontraindikacijami in krepasto kožo.

Poiščite si model, ki ima lepe, tanke in dolge prste ter temu primerno obliko nohtov. Ne sme imeti prevelikih ali premajhnih rok, saj to močno vpliva na končen izgled. Nohtna plošča naj bo na vseh prstih enako dolga, z vidno lunico in poudarjeno nasmeh-linijo. Koža in obnohtna kožica naj bosta zdravi in negovani.

Pred tekmovanjem lahko nezaželene dlačice na rokah in prstih odstranite z depilacijo. Če ima model izrazito svetlo kožo, lahko uporabite nežne samoporjavitvene pripomočke.

 

3. The canvas on which you create your masterpiece

Choose the right model

Have you found the right model for the competition? Are you still feverously looking for one?

While choosing the right model it is very important to know the characteristics of a good model. Why? The judges will be evaluating only the hands and nails of the model.

Get a model that has a healthy natural nail and cuticles without flaws, anomalies or injuries on the hands – otherwise you will lose valuable points. Do not pick a model with contraindications or crepey skin.

Your model should have nice, slim and long fingers and a suitable nail shape. Their hands shouldn’t be too big or too small – this has a great impact on the final appearance. The nail bed should be equally long on all ten fingers, with a visible lunula and smile-line. The skin and cuticle should be healthy and well maintained.

Before the competition you can remove unwanted hair on the hands and fingers of your model. If your model has a very light complexion, use tanning products to create a healthy skin-tone.

 

4. vaš nov najboljši prijatelj in zaveznik

PRIPRAVA MODELA

Na tekmovanje se ne pripravlja le tekmovalec, ampak tudi model. Najmanj 6 tednov pred tekmovanjem se priporoča začetek sistematične nege nohtov in rok modela. Modela pred tekmovanjem ne boste mogli imeti ves čas pod nadzorom, zato je dobro, da se z njim temeljito pogovorite o pravilni negi doma. Tako se boste izognili morebitnim nevšečnostim tik pred tekmovanjem.

Večer pred tekmovanjem naredite ustrezno nego rok in obnohtne kožice na modelu. Če vaš model kadi, morate s kože odstraniti vse sledi nikotina. Pri pripravi nohtov modela na tekmovanje skrbno upoštevajte splošna navodila tekmovanja in specifična pravila, ki so vezana na kategorijo, v kateri sodelujete. Nohte pripravite tako, kot je dovoljeno po pravilih – s tem boste pridobili na času, ki ga boste potrebovali pri zaključevanju.

Dobro se seznanite z obliko rok in nohtov svojega modela. Z iskanjem prave velikosti konice lahko recimo izgubite dragocen čas.

Vaš model vam mora biti največji zaveznik. Pustite na stran nervozno vzdihovanje, neučakano cepetanje z nogami in živčno premišljevanje o tem, kaj lahko gre vse narobe. Na tekmovanju bodita ekipa in drug drugega spodbujajta in motivirajta.

Pred tekmovanjem je dobro, da s svojim modelom vadite sproščeno držo rok. Sodniki bodo videli le roke modela in pomembno je, da zna model pravilno »nositi« vaše končno delo.

 

4. Your best friend and ally

Prepare your model

Not only competitors need to prepare for the Competition, but their model as well. A systematical care routine for the models nails and hands should start at least 6 weeks before the Competition.

You won’t always be able to monitor your model so it’s important to have a thorough conversation about proper home-care with them. By doing so you will avoid unpleasant surprises just before the competition.

The evening before the competition do the required hand- and cuticle-care on your model. If your model smokes, make sure to remove all traces of nicotine from the hands. While preparing your models nails, bear in mind that you need to follow the general rules of the competition and she specific rules for the category you are competing in. Prepare the nails as directed in the rules – that way you will save valuable time will need for finishing the nails.

Get familiar with the shape of your models’ hands and nails. Searching for the right tip size during the competition means losing valuable time.

Your model should be your greatest ally. Leave aside any trace of nervous sighing, impatient stomping with your feet and jittery deliberations what can go wrong. The two of you should be a team – motivate and encourage each other.

Practice a relaxed hand posture with your model. The Judges will see only the hands so it’s very important that your model can correctly present you finished design.

 

5. "Ojej, pozabila sem..."

naredite si seznam, kaj vse potrebujete

Prepričajte se, da imate s sabo vse, kar potrebujete in je zahtevano v pravilih tekmovanja. Skrbno preverite splošna pravila tekmovanja in pravila specifičnih kategorij, na katera ste prijavljeni. Ne nosite s sabo stvari, ki niso dovoljene, saj boste po nepotrebnem izgubljali točke.

 

Preverite, da vse električne naprave pravilno delujejo in so po transportu pripravljene za uporabo. Ne pozabite na pilice, pokriti koš za smeti, namizno luč, električni podaljšek, prvo pomoč, itd.

Vse, kar prinesete na tekmovanje, naj bo čisto in nepoškodovano. Krožni sodniki bodo med tekmovanjem ocenjevali tudi čistočo vašega dela, mize in okolice. Stvari naj bodo razporejene organizirano in pregledno - tako boste med delom imeli vse pri roki.

 

5. “Oh no, I forgot…”

Make a checklist of all the things you need

Make sure to take everything you need for the competition with you – check the competition rules. Read all the rules carefully: both general and specific rules for the categories you are competing in. Do not take things with you, that are listed as forbidden – that way you’ll lose valuable points.

Check all electrical devices and make sure they are working properly and can be immediately used after transporting them. Don’t forget to bring files, a wastebasket with cover, a table lamp, an extension cord, a first-aid kit, etc. Everything you use on the competition should be clean and undamaged. Floor judges will be evaluating the state of your work, table and your surroundings. Everything on the table should be organized neatly – that you you’ll have everything you need within reach.  

 

6. Teče in nič ne reče

Ne pozabite na uro

Imejte v mislih, da je vaše delo na tekmovanju časovno omejeno. Z redno vajo boste pridobili na hitrosti in ne boste ves čas gledali na uro. Že zdaj lahko preizkusite, kako dolgo potrebujete, da končate s svojim delom.

Pri vsakem postopku naj vas model opozarja na čas, da boste delo dokončali v dovoljenem času.

V kolikor boste glede časovnih omejitev v dvomih, se glede tega pozanimajte pri ekipi Akademije studio Lepota, ki vam bo glede tega svetovala.

 

6. Time flies …

Mind the time

Remember – the competition time is limited. With a regular practice you’ll work faster and won’t have to check how much time is left. It’s wise to time yourself before the competition and see, how much time you need to finish.

 

During the competition you can ask your model to inform you, how much time is left, so you will finish on time. If you are in any way unsure about the schedule of the competition, contact the team of Akademija studio Lepota for more information.

 

7. Vsi smo zmagovalci!

Imejte pravo stališče in miselnost

Tekmovanje je lahko na nekoga, ki tekmuje prvič, zelo stresno. Celo izkušeni manikerji imajo lahko pred tekmovanjem tremo in jih je strah!

Pomembno je ohraniti pozitivno miselnost. Že s prijavo ste pokazali pogum, željo po napredovanju in zavidljivo samozavest. Imeli boste enkratno priložnost, da se družite z ljudmi, ki so, podobno kot vi, nohtni navdušenci. Neglede na končno uvrstitev – tekmovanje bo neprecenljiva izkušnja, na katero se boste v kasnejših letih zagotovo spomnili z nasmeškom na obrazu.

 

7. We’re all winners!

Keep the right mentality and viewpoint

Competing can be very stressful for a first-time competitor. Even experienced nail technicians can have stage-fright or even be a little bit scared!

It’s important to stay positive. By turning in your registration you’ve already shown courage, desire for improvement and enviable self-confidence. This will be an incredible opportunity to socialize with fellow nail enthusiasts. Regardless of the final placement – the competition will be a valuable experience. Even years later it’ll be a great memory to reminiscence on.

 

8. »še daleč je do Portoroža…«

Prednost tekmovanja Nail Design je izjemna – mednarodno tekmovanje, ki se izvaja v Sloveniji. Stroški potovanja, nastanitve in hrane so izjemno znižani!

Kljub temu je potrebno na kraj tekmovanja priti pravočasno. Seznanite se s potjo do tja, preračunajte okvirni čas potovanja in prištejte čas za nepredvidene dogodke. Pomislite: tekmovanje je sredi maja na vikend ob obali. Računajte na pestro vožnjo po avtocesti.

Na tekmovanje pridite nekoliko prej, tako se boste izognili nepotrebni živčnosti. Predlagamo, da se z modelom peljete v istem avtu oz. se peljete skupaj.

 

8. “Riding along in my automobile…”

One of the advantages of competing at Nail Design 2019 is the location – an international competition is being held in close vicinity. Travel, food and accommodation costs are drastically reduced!

Nonetheless you still need to get there on time. Make yourself familiar with the route to the location where the competition is being held, calculate esteemed time of arrival and take possible delays in account. Remember: The Competition is being held in the middle of May on a weekend near the coast. Expect an eventful drive.

Make sure to arrive early at the location of the Competition to avoid unnecessary nervousness. We suggest driving together with your model.
