Success in Ireland for Amie Pike!
Hi all, Amie Pike here from Dublin Ireland!
So I've been entering competitions for a couple of years now, and just became hooked. I set myself a goal an it was to become the over all winner! So over the years I've done training with the world's best nail techs to help improve my skills and to make me a better nail tech. I also got as much practise in as I could in the salon.
So in my recent competition at the Irish beauty nail tournament, I was crowned the over all winner! I just can't believe it! Really was a shock! Because the week running up to the comp I pulled out of competition pink & white as I was feeling quite down and was not happy with all my practise nails, with already been placed first in this category in October. I attended the competition on the Sunday an entered "salon nails", I got placed 4th with one point from 3rd, I was super happy with this and my spirits lifted lol. And then I also placed 3rd in photographic classic! Feeling super proud and happy this made my more determined for Monday's competition!
So I knew I needed to go home an get a little practise in before the comp in the morning! But unable to get a model at 9pm at night I had to use my lovely boyfriend! I spent about 4 hours practising sculpted stiletto and also my nail art on him. He was a great model. So early rise Monday morning at 6am. Feeling more hopeful, I entered sculpted stiletto and free style nail art. I do believe think positive and positive things will happen. Everything just seemed to go so smooth for both competitions and I was so happy with how my nails turned out. Then there is the wait for the results, on all the comps I've entered I can never tell who the winner is, my nerves had gone awaiting the results.
When I was called for 1st place sculpted stiletto I could not believe it! Then to be called first for free style nail art just blew me away!! And to top that when they were calling the over all winner I just had no clue it was me, I was packing up my bags in shock! This has been a dream come true for me, hard work really dose pay off. And just never giving up till you get there lol. I am super excited now to be apart of the judging panel.
Also couldn't be happier to be apart of such an amazing brand, I've been using Nsi from the beginning an it's by far the best system. The girls are like my family now
