Nominees for Excellence in Nail Styling were: Gina Edwards, Jenna Hipp, and Yoko Sakakura. Actress Meagan Tandy and NAILS executive editor Beth Livesay presented the award for that category. Yoko Sakakura (@nails_by_yoko) took home the award. All three nail stylists were on-hand to walk the red carpet and support one another. "When I started doing nails, my parents were upset because they put me through college," said Sakakura, "But my nails are my passion."
