NailFile Competition winners 

NailFile announces ‘Swinging Sixties’ winner

Chantelle Ayres is the winner of the NailFile ‘Swinging Sixties’ Nail Design Challenge for a set of nails the judges described as ‘phenomenal’ and ‘beautifully done with every detail on point’.


They were super-impressed with Chantelle’s unique take on the ‘Swinging Sixties’ theme – Vogue fashion, models & ‘it girls’ of the 1960s – and the way she translated it onto her nails.


The judges also praised Juanita Bester (2nd place) and Candida De Lange (3rd place) for their colourful and vibrant sets, which were so well executed.


Thanks to our competition sponsor, Bio Sculpture.
