For its anniversary year, NAILS Next Top Nail Artist will kick-off with new rules, new dates, new sponsors, and a new finale. But before concluding at Premiere Orlando in June, the judges had to determine the 12 finalists who will play for the world to see at www.nailsmag.com/nexttopnailartist2017/ starting on January 22, 2018.

This year's Top 12 represent the U.S., Canada, England, and Denmark in a truly international competition. They have already competed in two pre-challenges sponsored by Swarovski Crystals (see them here and here), but now will go head to head in weekly challenges from Season 5 sponsors  CNDAkzentzBio Seaweed GelEzFlowGelIIIBDKUPALeChatOrly, and Wildflowers.

Please join NAILS and our sponsors in congratulating these 12 remarkable women!

Season 5 begins Janaury 22 with CND. Don't miss it!
