Easily Enchanted: Who Won and Who’s Packing Up Their Paintbrushes


Congratulations to Celina Ryden for winning this week’s Easily Enchanted challenge. This is a record sixth win for Celina!


CND head judge Jan Arnold said,The scale of your final art is absolutely magnificent! I loved the dimension and the detail in the design elements!”


Guest judge Sara Pollock of EzFlow said, “Each nail has such intricate details that each time you look you see something new.  The time and effort spent creating the amazing forest creatures and plant life is inspiring.  This world she created fully encompasses the whimsy of a mystical forest that I would love to visit.”


NAILS editor Erika Kotite said, “It’s hard to top this one. Celina perfectly captured a fantasy land, with a forest of creatures that really seemed alive.”


NTNA season 2 winner Lavette Cephus said, “The overall design is astounding! Although it’s a fantasy piece the entire design is cohesive and tells a story. The details on the trunk of the tree and the grass looks so realistic. I enjoyed how the actual nail tips play a role in this set. The color palette gives me whimsical without a doubt.”

Celina will receive an assortment of EzFlow products valued at $550.




The nail tech who is packing up her paintbrushes this week is… Winnie Huang. Winnie, to say you have won our hearts would be saying too little. We never had to advise you to think outside the box and we looked forward to your videos each week. You brightened up each challenge with your own brand of creativity and we so admire you for that. Thank you for giving NTNA another shot. We are proud to have you in our Top 4.


But this won’t be the last time you hear from Winnie. She will move on to CND’s Last Chance Design Lab where she’ll have one last chance to stay in the competition. Check back next Friday to see who will move on to the finals — Victoria or Winnie.
