Congratulations to Tan Nguyen, owner of Nails N2 Art at Elite Salons & Spas in Conroe, Texas, and winner of VietSALON Magazine’s first-ever Nail Artistry Competition. The competition, which was sponsored by CND, challenged nail techs to create a set of five nail tips that best celebrate “the creativity and beauty of color” using their favorite CND system. After narrowing down the entries, a panel of judges from VietSALON, NAILS, and CND selected five finalists to receive an all-expenses paid trip to Premiere Orlando, June 4-6.

The colorful designs of the top five finalists reflected various techniques, from hand-painting to 3-D sculpture. Ultimately, Nguyen was named the winner during CND’s June 5 Shining Stars Party & Concert, featuring actress Kieu Chinh and singer Don Ho. Tan’s unique and vibrant hand-sculpted design channeled Vietnamese dragons, which represent life, existence, and growth. In addition to the title, Tan received $1,000 in product and cash prizes from CND.
