For the past half-decade, the Cosmonail Cup has been the ultimate proving grounds for thousands of nail technicians across the globe to put their skills to test, with only the best teams passing the evaluation by international nail experts.

INCA: The Gold Standard for Competitive Nail Contests

The International Nail & Lash Competition Association Group (INCA) is established in 7 countries in Asia, in which its country chapters set the standards for quality competitive nail contests. Judges in all INCA competitions are rigorously selected & trained before standing as a competition judge, therefore contestants are assured of a fair judging panel in every INCA competition.

A Challenge of Technical Skills & Creativity

The 6th edition of Cosmonail Cup Nail Competition will give aspiring nail champions an opportunity to demonstrate their creativity under pressure, as more contest categories are featured, as well as new technical specifications for contestants to comply during the contest.

Professional Evaluation by International Experts

To ensure contestants are given a fair yet stringent evaluation, only the most experienced beauty experts are selected and trained by INCA to be an INCA competition judge. Nearly 30 judges from China, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam will be forming the judging panel this year.

International Level of Competition Standards

Cosmonail Cup Nail Competition is jointly organised by Cosmobeauté and the International Nail Competition Association (INCA), ensuring that the competition is managed smoothly, and competition standards are applied without bias.

PARIS (Reuters) - France’s L’Oreal (OREP.PA) on Wednesday said it had agreed to buy South Korean make-up and fashion firm Nanda, as foreign cosmetic industry leaders jostle for a slice of one of the world’s most innovative beauty markets.

L’Oreal did not disclose how much it was paying for the company, detailing only that Nanda, known for its fashion business Stylenanda and 3CE cosmetics brand, had a turnover of 127 million euros ($152 million) in 2017.

The acquisition could be worth around 400 billion won ($371.6 million), Korean media previously reported when L’Oreal was picked as the preferred bidder.

L’Oreal declined to comment on the report.

The French group, owner of brands such as Lancome and Maybelline, said in a statement it planned to further roll out sales of 3CE internationally. The make-up brand generates nearly three quarters of Nanda’s revenue, the companies said, while Nanda primarily operates in Asia.

Foreign investors including LVMH (LVMH.PA), Estee Lauder (EL.N) and Unilever (UNc.AS) are also among those betting on continued demand for Korean beauty products in Asian markets such as China, backed by the popularity of Korean pop culture.

Chinese consumers, and young shoppers in particular, are driving booming sales of make-up and skincare products globally.

Korean beauty products, meanwhile - from face masks that incorporate innovative and natural ingredients such as snail slime, to high-end creams - are gaining traction outside Asia, and domestic companies like Amorepacific (090430.KS) are looking to expand in Europe.

L’Oreal said Nanda - its first Korean beauty brand - was “perfectly positioned to nourish the growing appetite for make-up of millennials in Korea, China and beyond.”

The acquisition is expected to be completed within two months, L’Oreal said.
