Lavette Cephus (Toledo, OH) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.
"This challenge was so fun! Although I am a late ’80s baby, I feel like I was supposed to be born in the late ’60s. My family and I were obsessed with “Soul Train”. I am the oldest of six siblings (a big family meant our own soul train fun) , and we would always pretend to have our own soul train line. I want this competition to be as fun as possible, and when I can add energy to the challenge I will and as soon as I think of the soul train I think of energy, dancing until your feet hurt, bending lower than you thought possible, laughing and fun time with others. To add a touch of calmness I thought of a magnificent singer during those times — Diana Ross, an idol — she wore a mean afro, which also reminds me of Soul Train. It seems everyone on the show wore an afro."
