Week 4: International Nails


This week’s challenge is sponsored by INM. We asked our Top 9 to examine their own heritage and create their own set of “International Nails” inspired by the country (or countries) of their family’s origin. The design must be on five nail tips (not on a hand), and they could use any medium (or combination of mediums) they saw fit. We’ve posted their entries on the Week 4 Challenge page.


Our judges will be looking over the entries with a fine tooth comb and scoring our top designs and our least favorite designs. We also want to know what you have to say. Vote for your favorite artist to make sure they stay in the competition. (You can vote one time per contestant each week.)

Voting will be open until Thursday, October 2 at 12 PM PST. We’ll announce the results of Week #4’s challenge (the winner and who is eliminated) on Friday, October 3.

Don’t let your favorite nail artist go home! Make sure to vote and tell all of your friends to vote too!
