For Season 6’s sixth Last Chance Design Lab challenge sponsored by CND, Emily Nash and Jenna Jupin will battle it out one-on-one to see who has a chance of staying in the competition. CND’s Jan Arnold will select her favorite look Friday and you’ll find out who will remain for at least one more week.
All Last Chance challenges are done on a single nail tip. Contestants are also asked to describe their looks. There are no other elements to this battle.
Since Emily packed her paintbrushes after En Vogue’s Strike a Pose challenge, this week’s Last Chance challenge is loosely related.
Master of Reinvention: Madonna is well-known for reinventing herself. For this challenge, reinvent one of your own nails from a past challenge this season.
Here are the looks they created:
My giraffe nail has so much meaning to me, being one of my favorite animals, but also this was the first challenge I made it into the Top 3! Thinking how I could reinvent y favorite nail, I knew I had to add someone on a safari, and that someone just happens to be Jan Arnold. Also being able to use any products to do the nail, I wanted to make sure I added colors and dimension that I didn’t necessarily achieve the first time around. We had pastels, and some dark colors, so reinventing the color choices was a must. This challenge to me, means I have the chance to reinvent my future and the possibility to make it into the Top 3. Jan is looking into the distance and seeing the future of NTNA, so adding the giraffe holding a Top 3 ticket added to the idea of that.
I reinvented the pinky finger of my steampunk-themed nails from the first challenge of the Season because this was the look I liked the most out of all the sets I did this season. I love how the duo-tone metal look together, and I added some colors to reinvent my look.
Coming from the anachronistic technology using wheels and dials, I turned it into modern technology, creating an electronic look with conductive pathways that make up a circuit board as a single nail tip, including diodes, microchips and sparkles at the ends of the wire soldered to the nail, to show how much I am driven to create nail art.
Congratulations to Emily Nash for winning the sixth Last Chance Design Lab challenge of Season 6! Emily went up against Jenna Jupin to reinvent a nail from a previous challenge. CND’s Jan Arnold chose the winner.
Jan said, “Your nail is a delightful reinvention filled with beautiful color and dimension! Love the suede texture and caricature portrait. And, I must say, upon looking at it, I knew immediately who it was! Great job, wonderful craftsmanship, and artistry. You’re my winner this week!”
This means Emily will move on to compete against the next eliminated contestant. Find out tomorrow who that will be.
