Final Challenge: Manus x Machina


The final challenge for Season 4 is all about mixing handmade and machine-made elements to form haute couture nail designs. Contestants were asked to include a 5-7 minute video diary that shows how their looks came to life, along with written details about their inspiration and process. Pinterest boards from each contestant were also shared to show us how they made one of these six final sets. We posted all the entries on the Final Challenge voting page.

Read about each part of the final challenge on the Results page, then cast your vote after seeing all six sets together.

Voting will be open until Thursday, March 23 at 11 am PST. On Saturday, the winner of Season 4 will be crowned at the Roof on theWit in Chicago after day one of America’s Beauty Show.

Don’t let your favorite nail artist go home! Make sure to vote as much as you want and spread the word by sharing your pick on social media using hashtag #NAILSNTNA.
