A RAINFOREST-inspired look was declared the winning design at a 3D nail competition at Dearne Valley College.

Lauren Sharpe, 25, from Kilnhurst, made the accessories from acrylic and won a range of products from Nail Systems International (NSI).

As part of the competition, beauty therapy students were given a brief from tutor Claire Mynett to create something with either a historical or fantasy theme.

To accompany the nails they were asked to create a costume, arm art, hair and make-up for the finished image.

The students used each other as models with one group creating the nails and outfits one week and then swapping over for the next creations.

The competition was judged by beauty therapy tutors and Karen Potts, North West Representative/Educator from Nail Systems International (NSI).

Tutor Claire said; “The students have all worked really hard to create their 3D nails. There have been some really creative designs produced.

“All the students have put a lot of time and effort into creating some fantastic designs.”
