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.

Deanna White


This nail artist taught us to never give up. After two previous attempts to make it into the Top 12, this Canadian tech has rightfully earned her spot as a finalist. White was The Glossies winner for 2016, so nail art contests only play to her strengths. Even though she has only been licensed two years, White has a proven track record working with gel and acrylic masterfully to achieve her vision (See her #GelishPlayAtHome entries ). Learn more about Deanna by reading her bio and seeing her list of social networks here.


Jonny Diep Pham


Season 4’s lone male contender is a force to be reckoned with. Pham has already won Nailympia Australia, garnering him international press and recognition. More recently, he made his U.S. debut in NAILS, sharing his on-point painting techniques. Known for quality, colorful, and curated nail art photos, it’s no wonder Pham’s Instagram following keeps growing and growing.

Katey Laurenson


Our first ever New Zealand competitor, Katey Laurenson is also no stranger to Nailympia Australia. She placed second in the Novice Photographic category last year. Now she is ready to take on the world with her precise hand painting abilities. Her salon is called Embellished Nails, but we at NTNA know no embellishments will be necessary after Laurenson handcrafts her signature geometric prints. Get to know Katey by reading her bio and following her on social media, here.
