After a grueling four-part finale that ended with a live “quick fire” challenge at ISSE Long Beach, Ryoko Garcia was crowned winner of NAILS’ inaugural Next Top Nail Artist competition. Now in its sixth season, the reality show-inspired competition pits contestants against one another in a battle for the title. Weekly challenges determine who moves on and who will be “packing up their paintbrushes” at the end of every week. “Competition pushes you to think outside of the box and also to work toward perfecting your craft,” said Garcia, who described her win as “the biggest achievement in my life so far.”
