Playing off the name of INM (International Nail Manufacturers), we asked our Top 9 to examine their own heritage and create their own set of “International Nails” inspired by the country (or countries) of their family’s origin. The design must be on five nail tips (not on a hand), and they could use any medium (or combination of mediums) they saw fit. They were allowed to extend the nail (longer), build up on the nail (3-D), or hand paint their designs.


We also asked them to shoot a 3-5 minute video showing how they created the nail and how they were inspired.


Week 4’s challenge winner will receive a $500 gift certificate from INM.
