Now in its third season, NTNA challenges contestants with weekly challenges to showcase their creativity and technical skills through awe-inspiring nail artistry.

The final multi-part challenge, sponsored by CND and currently underway, is inspired by BCL, a non-profit organization designed to build awareness of the extraordinary career opportunities available in the beauty and wellness industry. In 2014, BCL established the BCL | CND | Tippi Hedren Nail Scholarship, funded by CND and its distributors and honoring actress and humanitarian Tippi Hedren, who is credited for pioneering the Vietnamese-American nail professional movement in the 1970s. Recently, in conjunction with the competition, BCL introduced the BCL | Tippi Hedren | NAILS NTNA Scholarship fund.
