INM’s Jimmy the Swan came to life this past year in a series of animated shorts. Now it’s the contestants’ turn to make nail art come alive. The Top 4 were asked to create a fantasy nail art tip that has at least one movable component. The animated portion of the nail must be INM–related (think products, logos, company history, etc.). Participants could use any mediums they chose to create the nail with the exception of embellishments (charms, jewels, chains, studs, rhinestones, etc.). They also had to submit a video showing us how they made their nail. Since the animation process begins with a sketch, we had to see a sketch of the initial design included in the video.



The winner of this challenge will receive a $500 gift certificate from INM.
