CND Announces NAILSNTNA Top 3 as 2016 BCL NextGen Artists


NAILS Magazine and CND are proud to announce that this year’s Top 3 contestants have been named NextGen Artists by top sponsor, CND, for the fourth annual Beauty Changes Lives (BCL) Experience during America’s Beauty Show (ABS) 2016 in Chicago.


The final multi-part challenge, sponsored by CND and currently underway, is inspired by BCL, a non-profit organization designed to build awareness of the extraordinary career opportunities available in the beauty and wellness industry. In 2014, BCL established the BCL | CND | Tippi Hedren Nail Scholarship, funded by CND and its valued distributors and honoring actress and humanitarian Tippi Hedren, who is credited for pioneering the Vietnamese-American nail professional movement in the 1970s. Now, in conjunction with the competition, BCL introduces the BCL | Tippi Hedren | NAILS NTNA Scholarship fund.


On Saturday, March 12, 2016, BCL will host its fourth annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience at Chicago’s Soldier Field. Beauty manufacturers will have an opportunity to showcase the work of three talented artists that represent the best of the best in the next generation of beauty professionals. It is only fitting that these three inspiring artists will represent CND at the prestigious industry event, which takes place the evening before one deserving nail professional will be officially crowned NAILS Next Top Nail Artist.


Congrats to Celina Ryden, Sarah Elmaz, and Winnie Huang on being named NextGen!
