Love Story: Who Won and Who’s Packing Up Their Brushes

Congratulations to Bojana Radojicic! Her Lady and the Tramp nail art won the hearts of the judges and the public this week.

Guest judge Tammy Taylor said, Bojana’s talent is amazing. I loved her whole video, her attention to detail, her techniques and her finished work of art. Bojana made these characters come to life!”

Season 5 champion Valerie Ducharme said, “Wow your video is perfect, thanks for your wonderful advice! Everyone likes Disney characters, but I would have liked to see this very popular image deconstructed, to see your own creativity.”

Head judge Jan Arnold said, “Cute and very creative theme! Excellent painting and shading skills for great dimension. Nice pro tips along the way. Please keep square to frame and place more intention for the learner in the video. The spiral flower is genius!”

NAILS art director Yuiko Sugino said, “Really good composition and excellent use of colors. Beautiful shading and line work! The transparencies in the film strip add a really nice texture throughout the set as well as the spaghetti — how cute! I love how the tips are layered under the film strip — it really gives an illusion of looking through a screen/movie. Plenty of useful tips are given during her tutorial. The topic choice could’ve been more personal though (not Disney).”

Read more about Bojana’s look here and here.

Bojana will receive a Tiffany & Company bracelet!

The nail tech who will be packing her paintbrushes this week is … Stella Sampson. Stella is known for her beautiful nail art and shading. She will be greatly missed!

This won’t necessarily be the last we hear from Stella. 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 Friday to see who will move on in our Last Chance battle — Stella or Jenna.

Tune in Monday to see the results of the EzFlow challenge and vote for your favorites! Good luck to our remaining Top 8 competitors.
