NAILS and CND Name Next Top Nail Artist Top 24 Semi-Finalists

It was no easy task reviewing applications, nail art photos, and videos from all over the world, but at long last the team at NAILS has named its 24 semi-finalists for season three of NAILS Next Top Nail Artist sponsored by CND.

This was the most intense year of first round cuts, as several returning competitors and international nail artists alike threw their hat in the ring. The countries represented this year in our Top 24 include Greece, Australia, Sweden, England, Canada, and Trinidad and Tobago, in addition to The United States.

These 24 contestants bring diverse backgrounds, strong artistic abilities, and an intense love for nails to this year’s competition. NAILS and CND would like to congratulate the following nail professionals for making the crucial first cut:

This is only the beginning for these 24 semi-finalists. In the weeks to come they will face off with two pre-challenges to determine who will make the Top 12 and go on to compete for the ultimate prize of being named NAILS Next Top Nail Artist 2016.

In addition to our top sponsor CND, we would like to thank this year’s competition sponsors including Akzentz, Bio Seaweed Gel, China Glaze, Dashing Diva, Entity, EzFlow, Gel II, Gelish, INM, and Orly.

 We wish our contestants the best of luck!
