Andrea nails first prize

Andrea nails first prize in UK trainee competition

Student nail artist Andrea Gordon wowed the judges with her imaginative designs in a national competition for trainees.

Stoke on Trent College student Andrea from Etruria took first prize in the nail art category at the AHT UK Trainee Competition 2012.

Andrea’s colourful flower design was judged the best of the bunch by the competition judges in the finals at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

Stoke on Trent College took a strong team of talented students to the finals after achieving great success in the regional AHT competition in February.

Tutor Rachel Lea said: “It was great to see Andrea triumph and to see all our competitors do well.

“We had four winners in the regional competition when Andrea actually went through to the national competition as runner-up in her category.

“The fact that she did even better in the national final is a credit to her skill and determination.”
