NAILS Next Top Nail Artist Season 4 begins in less than one month! We’re getting competition-ready by introducing you to our Top 12, three at a time. Make sure you’re following these nail artists as they compete for the top title in the professional nail industry, beginning September 12.

Amber Dunson


A beauty blogger turned licensed pro, Dunson is no stranger to nail art contests. In fact, she’s won one before. In 2015, she took home the top prize in NAILS Mini Masterpiece Contest. But hand painting isn’t her only specialty. This 3-D Fanatic can literally make anything come to life on a nail. Don’t believe us? Check out her bio and social networks here to see for yourself. 


Cate Widemire


This nail tech has had plenty of practice at being social media savvy. Having worked with Nail Talk Radio, she not only understands the ins and outs of the industry, but she knows how to report on them too. When she’s not doing nails and working with NTR, she is performing random acts of kindness, which make us love her even more. See Cate’s bio and social networks here so you can love her more too.


Dana Cecil


“Persistence” might as well be Dana Cecil’s middle name. This contender has auditioned for NTNA twice before, with Season 4 proving to be the charm. She’s already been profiled in Nail Art Gallery Magazine for her exceptional paintwork, but with more of her art popping up in NAILS we know the best is yet to come. See just how good she is by reading her bio and viewing her social networks here.
