1. Get your artwork seen by Danny Haile

That's right, THE Danny Haile (nail tech and founder of Gelish) judges the entries.

2. Did we mention there are product prizes?

3. Be part of an art-focused community

Tag your entries #gelishplayathome so that those who follow the competition can get to know you. Your work doesn't have to be new either, so long as it fits the weekly theme. It's a fun way to make new nail friends from all over the world!

4. Practice Makes Contestant


If you're considering applying for NTNA, there's no better way to refine your skills. Some of this season's contestants are past Play@Home winners

5. NAILS editors take note

Want to be in the pages of NAILS? There's no better way to get noticed.

6. Sharing is caring

Want a feature on NAILS' social media? Each week we post the winner's photo on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.

7. Honorable mentions

Every week we post our favorite entries (not just the winner) on the NTNA site.

8. Play against past competitors


Just because a former NTNA contestant is out of the game doesn't mean they still don't want to play. See how you stack up against some of the best in the industry.

9. Challenge yourself


If your goal is to become a better nail artist then you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Plus, it's fun.

10. Did we mention prizes?
