For Season 7’ss first Last Chance Design Lab challenge sponsored by CND, Christy Homolya and Bojana Radojicic 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 Bojana packed her paintbrushes after En Vogue’s Star Crossed challenge, this week’s Last Chance challenge is loosely related.
Star Struck: Hand paint a portrait of someone you’re dying to meet.
Here are the looks they created:
When I saw the first Last Chance Lab challenge I instantly knew I’ll choose Marilyn Monroe. She was one of the most beautiful women who ever lived and has a memorable personality. I always admired her since I was a child. I’m sad that I can’t meet her any more. My opponent will be Bojana, the queen of portrait painting, so I had to improve my technique in this short time. I chose a very difficult face to paint and for the first time, I used gel paints for this. The background is simple black, it helps to bring the face more alive. I painted the darker colors first and little by little added more lighter colors to it. Between the layers I only flash cured the design, and always used a dry brush to wash the colors together. In the end all the little brush strokes will be gone when you put the top coat on it. It was challenging, but I really enjoyed this last chance in this competition.
I have decided to paint the portrait of someone I admire and I would be honoured to meet. That person is Novak Djokovic, Serbian tennis player who is currently ranked world No.1 in men’s single tennis. He is a six-time ITF World Champion and a five-time ATP year-end No. 1 ranked player. Djokovic has won numerous awards, including the Laureus World Sports Award for Sportsman of the Year four times and the 2011 BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year award. Djokovic has won 17 Grand Slam singles titles, five ATP Finals titles, 34 ATP Tour Masters 1000 titles, 13 ATP Tour 500 titles, and has held the No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings for over 275 weeks. He is the only male player to have won all nine of the Masters 1000 tournaments. His Foundation, The Novak Djokovic Foundation, launched in 2007, is an advocate for childhood development and inclusive preschool education that enables children from disadvantaged communities – especially in Serbia – to grow up, play and develop in a stimulative, creative and safe environment.
Congratulations to Bojana Radojicis for winning the first Last Chance Design Lab challenge of Season 7! Bojana went up against Christy Homolya to paint a portrait of someone who would render them starstruck. CND’s Jan Arnold chose the winner.
Jan said, “Oh wow, this is simply extraordinary! Brilliant choice using a square tip for a man’s architectural face; the hair used as framework, combined with a matte finish for precise detail in the face and eyes. Perfect proportion and expression. You are a true master painter. Congratulations on winning this week’s Last Chance Challenge!”
This means Bojana will move on to compete against the next eliminated contestant. Find out tomorrow who that will be.
