Question 01.

I HAVE REGISTERED BUT I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY INFORMATION

All competitors who have been shortlisted to take part in the competition based on the points system will receive all essential information from 1st March onwards. Although you may have registered, this does not automatically mean that you are entitled to take part in the competition. See Shortlisting.

Question 02.

WHY IS THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP NOT TAKING PLACE IN MONACO?

We have asked a large proportion of the competitors and the vast majority have opted for Velden am Wörthersee for the following reason: Monaco is a very expensive location and moreover, Velden boasts a far more attractive surrounding area.
Velden is in no way inferior to Monaco in terms of glamour, yet its prices are much more modest.
e.g. a cappuccino in Monaco costs €29 while in Velden, it is €3.20; A toasted sandwich in Monaco will set you back €49 but in Velden, it is just €4.50.

Question 03.

WHY CHOOSE VELDEN AM WÖRTHERSEE?

Next to Monaco, Velden is the place that is visited by the highest number of celebrities and at the same time, it has a 100% better infrastructure. On average, around 98 Top celebrities can be spotted around the Wörthersee lake area each day.

Celebrities who have visited Wörthersee in the past include:
Countless heads of state, political and financial players, as well as music industry and film stars like Omar Sharif, Catherine Zeta Jones, Michael Douglas, Prince Albert of Monaco, Carmen und Robert Geiss, Lionel Richie, Helene Fischer, Conchita Wurst, Peter Kraus, Roland Kaiser, Michelle, Al Bano Carrisi, Alfons Haider, Robbie Williams, Rainhard Fendrich, Howard Carpendale, Opus, Andreas Gabalier, Peter Schilling, Andrea Berg, Johnny Logan, Paul Potts, Placido Domingo, José Carreras, Agnes Baltsa, Montserat Caballé, Udo Jürgens, Konstantin Wecker, David Cassidy, Wolfgang Ambros, Drafi Deutscher, Falco, Ottfried Fischer, Linda Gray, Nina Hagen, Larry Hagman, Harald Juhnke, Hildegard Knef, Mike Krüger, Telly Savalas, Georg Thomalla, Klausjürgen Wussow, Otto Retzer, Uschi Glas, Roy Black, Pierre Brice and many more.

Question 04.

WHAT IS SO SPECAL ABOUT THE SCHLOSSHOTEL THAT THE WNC 2015 IS BEING HELD THERE?

For the most important worldwide event in the entire nail industry’s calendar we have secured the most spectacular location: the Schlosshotel at Lake Wörthersee. This hotel served as the backdrop for one of the most successful series of all time: "Ein Schloß am Wörthersee". This series was dubbed into 32 languages and in terms of viewing figures, it holds all-time the number one position, ahead of Dallas, Dynasty and Baywatch.

Furthermore, Schlosshotel Velden has been crowned the most luxurious hotel in Austria and has been awarded the “European Property Award”, which basically means that it is THE BEST Hotel in Austria.

Question 05.

DO I HAVE TO STAY IN SCHLOSSHOTEL?

No, but it does make things a lot easier. For example, in case you forget something, the journey time and distance is much shorter.

Question 15.

WHEN DO I HAVE TO ARRIVE BY?

Question 16.

WHY ARE ONLY 10-15 COMPETITORS ALLOWED TO TAKE PART?

We like to compare ourselves to the Formula 1 Grand Prix where only the very Elite is permitted to race rather than 100,000 racing drivers.

The number of competitors is limited to 10-15 people. Due to the different worldwide competitions (heats), the best 10-15 triple A premium professional nail technicians will be shortlisted on a points' basis. See Shortlisting.

In addition, 3 participants will be permitted to enter who have not been shortlisted based on ranking but instead possess the necessary expertise.

Only when evaluating the work of 18 people, can a jury make a correct judgment. This has been clearly proven via rigorous testing.

Question 17.

HOW WILL THE 10-15 COMPETITORS BE SELECTED?

The Triple A Premium Professional Nail Technicians are determined as follows:
With the exception of Nail Art, all those who have won first place are awarded points, e.g. the winner of the Nailpro Competition Cup “TOP 25 Of World” is awarded 300 points, the winners of the individual categories at the Nailpro Competition Cup held in Sacramento, ISSE Long Beach, IBS Las Vegas, Premiere Orlando, Pasadena, Nailapalooza will be awarded 200 points. Those winning first place at the Nailympics and Düsseldorf will both be awarded 100 points. The European Award in Munich gives you 150 points and national titles like e.g. the Swiss Championships, 50 points. Those with the highest total points through awarded titles will make up the 10-15 shortlisted participants.

In addition, 3 participants will compete who have not been shortlisted via the points ranking system but instead, possess the required expertise.
