NAILS Next Top Nail Artist officially begins in one month! To prepare for season three, we are profiling three of our Top 12 every Friday (in alphabetical order) until the competition begins. If you aren’t following all of our talented Top 12, you should, and here’s why.

Alecia Mounixay

This woman is the epitome of determination. She won her spot in the Top 12 after making it in the Top 24 the last two years of the competition. This acrylic master is not new to the nail competition scene and she has also worked NYFW alongside another nail great, Patricia Yankee.

April Ryan

Offering Russian-style nails in sunny Southern California is the niche this salon owner has carved out for herself. Her preference for detailed hand painting is a sight to be seen, and thanks to the second NTNA pre-challenge, so is her sculpting.

View April’s bio, nail art, and social media handles here.


Celina Rydén

To say Celina Rydén is just a nail artist would be a serious understatement. This natural entertainer is also a dancer, singer, and song writer. If you want to see nails with Scandinavian flair, then this popular Stockholm-based competitor will definitely interest you.
