Now that you’ve seen what the NAILS Next Top Nail Artist Top 11 contestants have come up with for their second weekly challenge, it’s your turn!


We want to see your interpretation of In Too Deep. All you have to do is follow the same rules the competitors did and upload your finished photo to your preferred social media account (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) and make sure to use the hashtags #GelishPlayAtHome and #NAILSNTNA. On Monday, September 22, we’ll select our favorite designs and Sandy Combs from Gelish will pick a winner. Each weekly Play@Home winner will receive a prize from Gelish.


OK…So here are the challenge instructions:


We asked our Top 11 contestants to create a set of 3-D gel sculptured nails across five nail tips (not on hands) based on the theme of Week 2 sponsor Bio Seaweed Gel’s fall/winter 2014 color collection In Too Deep. The collection includes seven mystical rich colors found under the ocean, including deep reds, blues, greens, and pearly neutrals. To help get inspired, the color names include: Oceania, Mother of Pearl, Treasure Chest, Shipwreck, Marina, Sire, and Are You Shore?


Please note: This is a 3-D GEL sculptured challenge. The contestants were instructed they must sculpt their looks using gel. NO ACRYLIC sculpting is allowed. They could also use embellishments, polish, gel-polish, and paints to accent the look. And they were allowed to use non-nail-related materials (clay, foil, wire, etc.) to help create the 3-D looks under the gel.
