From the Editors

Follow Friday: Lavette Cephus

by Sigourney Nuñez | March 27, 2015

Earlier this year Ohio-based nail tech Lavette Cephus took the title of NAILS Next Top Nail Artist Season 2 winner. Her passion, inspired designs, and her ability to grow and inspire others helped her come out on top as champion. Most recently, Cephus has been busy creating avant-garde looks for NYFW and CND. If you aren’t keeping up with this fashion-forward nail tech, you should. Here are three reasons why:

1. She is perseverance personified. Cephus was a tough competitor in the NTNA competition and showed us she's a well-rounded individual who's motivate to overcome obstacles and chase her dreams. You can read more about her here

2. She’s officially a part of CND’s dream team.

During ABS in Chicago last weekend, Cephus was one of three nail techs selected as a NEXTGEN artist to represent the industry’s future.
