Shannon McCown’s Photo Diary of Competing at NAILPRO Sacramento


NAILPRO competitor Shannon McCown gives us a sneak peek into her full day of competing at NAILPRO Sacramento.

Shannon McCown is a seasoned nail technician with 31 years of experience working in a salon, as an educator and a frequent nail competitor. McCown was even a member of Team Nubar, nabbing the NAILPRO Team Cup in 2014. After a two-year hiatus from the competition circuit, she stepped back into the arena at the NAILPRO Sacramento show. Amid the fears and proud moments of once again competing among her peers, old and new, McCown allowed NAILPRO assistant editor Dina Ciccarelli to shadow her through the entire process. Read on to see what goes into a day in the life
of a nail competitor.
