NAILS & CND Announce Top 3 Finalists in Next Top Nail Artist Competition

by NLS Staff | November 20, 2014

It seems like only yesterday we began our second NAILS Next Top Nail Artist competition by announcing the 12 nail professionals who would compete against each other for the ultimate industry prize.

Week after week each contestant brought her best, but unfortunately someone had to pack up her paintbrushes. This year we added a twist to the competition allowing the eliminated artist to have one last chance, thanks to CND. The Last Chance Design Lab saw the ousted competitors go head-to-head, leaving one final victor who could win her way back into the competition. Ultimately, Lavette Cephus edged out Simone Gilbert for the third and final spot at the top.

But the competition isn’t over yet. The final challenge, sponsored by CND, awaits Danielle Costantino, Lavette Cephus, and Lexi Martone. All three will meet in person at ISSE Long Beach 2015 to complete their final challenge, but only one can be crowned NAILS Next Top Nail Artist. Who will it be? Learn more about the finalists and their journey to the top here.

In the meantime, join NAILS, CND, and our sponsors Bio Seaweed Gel, Dashing Diva, Entity, Gel II, Gelish, INM, It’s So Easy, SuperNail, Orly, and Young Nails in congratulating these three exceptionally talented women.

See you at Long Beach in January!
