Guys - the idea was to have fun. You have always treated me kindly and shown and interest in Iryna's work - and on the other hand I know you don't have a magazine and miss out a bit because of that.

Yes, perhaps in afterthought there should have been categories. But we have just invest s***-loads in product development, design, stock etc and simply could not justify more prizes in a market where we don't even sell! As it is we liked so many entries we did almost double the prize value. (and bear in mind that the cost to us will almost double with shipping and import duty and tax).

If 40 people had entered we actually would have considered additional categories - because we are soft. But we had I believe entries from 16 people.

I would like to thank Bob and Iryna for their wonderful competition, it was lots of fun. I have not even been certified for 12 months yet and I did not expect to win. I did however have heaps of fun entering. My nails still need A LOT of work which will only come with practice. Everyone put a lot of time and effort into their entry and I personally think there is some really stunning work there. The competition was open to all so everyone knew the novices ( like me ) would be going up against techs with years of experience ( like our lovely Olga ) so please stop chewing sour grapes if you didn't win and just enjoy the success of having had the courage to enter.

Once again thank you Bob and Iryna for all your support. We really appreciate it, and like i said earlier you didn't know how many were going to enter so it would have been hard to have different sections. To extend the prizes was VERY generous, plus giving a little extra to all the entrants, what more could we ask? You have gone above and beyond!! Thanks again for looking after us nail-mag-less aussies!! :D :D :D

OK - I have made the changed. The email address threw me and given the day we just had, I didn't look deeper in the email. Apologies.

Hi,

I have spoken to all the girls who have entered, they are so thrilled with who won, they have been very excited to have entered this fantastic comp by Bob & Iryna. So honey their are definately no sour grapes. The girls would just like to have both Bob & Irynas opinion on where they can improve, or change things. That is all........ :D :D

You haven't spoken to me????? I think the winners totally deserved their places but if what you say is true then why was it necessary for you to censor some of the earlier posts to prevent any embarrassment to Bob and Iryna and Nailtips??? the whinging I was referring to was regarding the competition not having catagories novice, expert etc... it was plainly stated at the beginning that it was open entry and this is the point I was making....
