Nailympia London is now the leading national and international venue for top nail artists and is therefore the ideal showcase for REM to promote its market-leading nail furniture.

I strongly believe that a good education is the basis for the development of this industry. Watching the great works of the masters, while also being observant to what beginners can achieve, is a source of inspiration for whoever wishes to take this industry seriously and follow a career path. I feel it is important to repeatedly stress the importance of education. Nailympia London is the lighthouse for all nail technicians. In the open sea of improvisation, they should keep following that light and harbour in the secure waters of professionalism.
Rosy Guarini, Senior education manager & founder of the Rome Nail Academy

Competition Nails by 2012 Division 3 Winner of Winner - Eva Darabos - Hungary

Hungarian champion nail tech EVA DARABOS, Nailympia London Division 3 Winner of Winners 2012, dissects the competition nail to advise on what makes a winning nail.
