Seeing Clearly: Who Won and Who’s Packing Up Their Brushes

Congratulations to Ashton Harlan for winning the first challenge of Season 6! Her saran wrap technique and icicle bouquets made for cool nails that showed off Orly’s Builder in a Bottle’s capabilities.

Guest judge Shanee Pink said, “The care and details in your design was incredible. From the way you used saran wrap to create that pattern on the clear Builder to how you built those flowers and painted the flower petals. You really showed the diversity of the Builder product!”

Season 5 champion Valerie Ducharme said, “Your video is full of good advice. It’s clear and beautiful. This set is really you, too.”

Head judge Jan Arnold said, “Nice video; excellent teaching complete with pro tips. Refine language by using proper verbiage (inhibition layer vs. sticky). The baggy facets were brilliant and flowers in matte are great. You don’t need the ring in your final shot. Pay more attention to your own nails.”

Ashton will be winning a GelFX Pro Kit and LED Lamp from Orly (approximate value: $500).

The nail tech who is packing up her paintbrushes this week is … Jerilee Fair.

This won’t be the last you hear from Jerilee. 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 Jerilee will go up against in the first Last Chance battle.

Tune in Monday to see the results of the Mia Secret challenge and vote for your favorites! Good luck to our remaining 11 competitors.
