Sarah Brenton-Sara, lecturer in Level 2 & 3 Nail Services, Make-up & Beauty Therapy at Truro & Penwith College, reveals what her students achieved at their annual 3D nail art competition…

The level 3 advanced nail art students have excelled once again. It is great that the students are back in the swing of things after such a long time of uncertainty with the pandemic.

The group of part-time learners were given free rein of a theme for the nail art competition and their ideas were so original; from poppies to travelling.

Hannah Schooley created her design centred around Remembrance Day. Minute crosses and graves were adhered to the nails and handcrafted poppies surrounded them. Her mood board explaining the theme was presented on letters written to the soldiers in the war.

Katie Atkins created aspects of travelling with countries and memorabilia across the nails.

Ella Knight’s creation was designed around superheroes, with the nails displayed in the magazine moodboard.

Dawn Maddern placed joint first with nails created with her favourite artist in mind. The birds she crafted were so lifelike and the moodboard featured a miniature doll house.

Alice in Wonderland was created by Mimi McAuliffe, who placed joint first. She created Alice disappearing down the rabbit hole and features real grass as additional media.

The judges, Sennen Lord and Shauna Lord who have been kind enough to judge for these competitions for many years, said that each year the nails get even better with such attention to detail.

The evening was rounded off well with Mimi’s moodboard which was a cake stand full of cupcakes, distributed throughout the models, staff and competitors.
