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 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!
