Pink Room Cup 2009 + photos!

hi babes! how was yr F1 weekend?
mine was filled with work and stress over my first nail competition!

i was contemplating whether i should join the nail competition held by Pink Room as im working on fri and sat from 10pm to 4am~
im not sure whether i have enough "strength" and concentration on sunday's competition!
but i still joined in e end~

there were 5 categories:
1. Natural Nail Care
2. Acrylic Extension
3. Gel French Tip Overlay
4. Mix Media Nail Art
5. Fantasy Nail Art

after much consideration and given e time i have, i only join category 4, Gel French Tip Overlay.
i wanted to join acrylic too but its in e morning! i sure cant wake up! hahas~~

i found my nail model with pretty nail bed!
i only have time to practice with her twice b4 i started working for F1..

pretty long nails ya?
but it has to be all cut off! lol..
any nail extensions must cut off your natural nails~~

first practice was a disaster! nail tips doesnt fit my model well, e outcome made me sooo demoralise!
so i source for new white tipss~

this was e 2nd and final practice i had.. 3 days b4 nail competition~

i went to nail school to practice so that my teachers can give me some comments..
apparantly those set of nails u see above isnt perfect too =(

on e day of competition, i reached expo at 11 plus and clean my model's cuticles again b4 we go in to e competition area (:

my hands were shivering throughout man! lol and i was soooo sleepy as i slept at 6am ~~ hahas.. i was like a zombie that day^^
but im glad its over (:
i have to wait about 2 hours plus for e results announcement, so i slacked at Pink Room booth!

this set of nails is done by my teacher! (:
e model's nail bed is really long~
i introduced this model to my teacher and her hands are seen in a few well known magazines already! (:

all e participants were called to stage and receive our certificate of participation (:
and it was results announcement straight after, i was like "what! on stage? oh myy"

as i stood there listening to other category winners, my heart was beating very fast man!
especially when they were announcing my category winnerss i was shivering!

"Special award goes to ........"

"3rd prize goes to ......."

"2nd prize goes to ........"

by then i was slacking already..

"1st prize goes to ........ G34, Lim Junying!"

YAY I WON!!!!!
i really did not expect that!!! look at my shocking face man!

receiving my certificate! thats my nail school principal!

btw e guy above is my acrylic and gel teacher (:
he is e one that did e butterfly inlay nails~
super pro!!
he won so many champion in many nail competition and he is like "ban" to join asia nail competition.. lol..
so he flies overseas to compete (:
finally group photo with all e winners!

my manicure and gel teacher (: Ms Yumi!

my manicure teacher (: Ms Nicole!

my winning nails!

my model was telling me how the judges touch her nails, lift her hand to check C curves, check sides for perfect arc, using their fingers to touch cuticle areas, checking e sides for "overflow-ness" of gel~~ hahas.

my teachers were right! joining competition is really indeed motivating for u to strive more in your nail career!
though this is just a small scale competition~
its a fulfilling experience for me!
sorry babes im like so lor sor! hahas~
