Week 9: Every Week Is Fashion Week

Posted November 8, 2013


This week’s challenge is sponsored by CND, the professional nail company who pioneered nail art on the runways. For this challenge, our Top 4 were tasked with creating their own nail looks inspired by CND’s Design Lab, where CND creates innovative Fashion Week designs each season.

Referencing CND’s Digital Fashion Week Headquarters, as well as a provided Design Lab package (including CND trend boards, inspiration from designers and images of CND’s favorite Spring/Summer 2014 nail designs), we asked our nail artists to create THREE unique looks (each on a single nail tip) inspired by the contents of the package.

They were allowed to use any materials they like and we’re even giving extra points for creative uses of non-traditional materials! We asked them to create sketches for each of the three designs and include those in their entries as well. They also shot step-by-step videos for each look.

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 13 at noon PST. We’ll announce the results of Week #9’s challenge (the winner and who is eliminated) on Friday, November 15.

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