After waiting almost a month, the contestants of NTNA Season 6 were finally notified today. The announcement came first on NAILS’ Instagram Live. The following 24 contenders completed essay questions, a video audition, and shared their artwork. The applications committee had the difficult task of going through the many top-notch submissions to choose just 24. It was agreed that overall, the applicants for this year’s contest were among the strongest quality in our six year history.

Our Top 24 come from all over, including Scotland, England, Canada, Greece, Denmark, Serbia, and the United States. Two of the Top 24 are return finalists from Season 5 (Ashton Harlan and Jenna Jupin).

Join CND and NAILS Magazine in congratulating:

Pre-challenges sponsored by Swarovski will go live October 29 with the Top 12 beginning regular play in January 2019.

Judges for Season 6 include Jan Arnold, Valerie Ducharme, Gina Silvestro, Allie Baker, Lauren Wireman, So Yong Yu, and more to be announced.

The winner will be crowned at Premiere Orlando on June 1, 2019.
