On June 5th, Jan Arnold celebrated the nail industry with CND's Shining Stars! Party & Concert during Premiere Orlando. The professional salon industry, distributors, salon owners, and nail techs were treated to performances by Vietnamese musical superstar Don Ho and a photo op with actress Kieu Chinh.

NAILS' sister publication VietSALON Magazine was on hand to present the winner of the VietSALON Nail Artistry Competition, which was sponsored by CND.

Tan Nguyen, a nail artist in Conroe, Texas, was the big winner of the night, taking home the VietSALON Nail Artistry trophy presented by Arnold and VietSALON managing editor Anh Tran. Click here to see his nails along with the nail art from the five finalists.
