Week 10: The Ultimate Mariah Manicure

Posted November 15, 2013


This week’s challenge is sponsored by OPI Products. The iconic polish company often partners with celebrities and the entertainment industry to come up with beautiful new collections of polish. This holiday season, Mariah Carey is the face of the company’s glam holiday collection. We tasked our Top 3 to create a set of natural nails (on someone’s hands) that is inspired by Mariah Carey.

Their instructions were to base their designs on her personality, her songs, or anything else that Mariah represents to them. They were allowed to use polish only. (No enhancements, gel-polish, or acrylic paints.) But once the polish design was created, they were welcome to embellish it with crystals, rhinestones, and glitter…it wouldn’t be a Mariah mani without some bling, right?

In addition to sending us a final image of their nails, the Top 3 also had to upload step-by-step tutorials of their designs to show you how they created them.

Our judges will be looking over the entries and scoring our top designs and our least favorite designs. We also want to know what you have to say. Vote for your favorite artist to make sure they stay in the competition. (You can vote one time per contestant each week.)

Voting will be open until Wednesday, November 20 at noon PST. We’ll announce the results of Week #10’s challenge (the FINAL TWO contestants) on Friday, November 22.

Don’t let your favorite nail artist go home! Make sure to vote and tell all of your friends to vote too!
