What an AWESOME Competition Training!

We just had the most motivational and amazing 2-day Competition Training on Acrylic Sculptured Nails with Trang Nguyen, World Champion, founder and chief educator of Odyssey Nail Systems in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia recently.

While for most, it was their first competition training, there were also participants who've faithfully attended Trang's class for their 3rd, 4th and countless times around the world. We were exceptionally thrilled that participants, both old and new from Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, China also made it to this training in Malaysia.

As a veteran in this industry for the last 24 years, and a professional competitor, Trang shared everything he knew about competition right down to the blueprint of sculpting and finishing the most perfect competition nails. Participants were given plenty of opportunity to watch upclose, receive personal attention and guidance and plenty of hands-on. Cameras and video recording were allowed to ensure that all attendees get the most out of this class.

Every class that Trang has taught is information overload and having attended more than 4 classes myself, and watched him performed countless competition nails, I STILL find my own 'A-Ha!' moment...everytime~

We've learnt so much in this 2 days. People who've never seen what a world-class winning competition nail should look like are awed by its perfection, people who have almost given up trying competition nails have found a new motivation and the technique to improve and people who thought they did good enough comp nails felt like they need to learn and practise all over again. It was truly amazing and humbling.

The attendees were also given the opportunity to catch a glimpse of creating competition gel nail which finish exactly like an acrylic nail with the new ONS Evoke - New Era Gels

It is our mission to bring more of such classes into this part of the world, to build this industry with a strong technical foundation and introduce a fair ground for nail competition so our nail skills will become on par with international standards some day.

We thank our gracious host in Malaysia ~ JJ Professional Nail Training, who are also the organizer for the 3rd Fantastic Nail Competition at the Cosmobeaute Show in Malaysia.

We are sincerely grateful to Trang Nguyen for his unwavering support in giving his valuable time and sharing such a wealth of knowledge with our people.

We also thank all the attendees and helpers for your effort, warmth, enthusiasm and support.

See you all again next time ! THANK YOU XXXXX .....Catherine Wong
