Congratulations to Emily Nash who has been named the winner for the Nailandia Challenge. The judges loved taking this magical trip with you and thought you demonstrated wonderful imagination and skill. Everyone wants to travel to your creative world!
Challenge #5, Nailandia, asked the finalists to let their imagination really go places. In this week’s challenge, NTNA Finalists designed nail art on ten tips that represents their vision of “Nailandia” and the results are filled with 2-D and 3-D artwork.
Congrats to Emily Nash on your Back to the Future winning creation. Your design was a blast into the future of nail design.
Challenge #4, Back to the Future, was a reminder that CND is an editorial-minded brand. Throughout the years they’ve created iconic nail art looks and photo shoots to go along with these nails.
Congrats to Jessica Warznyiak (@oohnicenails) on your “Solar Power” winning creation. Your design was out of this world!
Challenge #3, Solar Power, took our finalists to the outer limits, and was inspired by CND’s Solar Oil, a legend within the nail industry. This challenge celebrates all things solar…and lunar. Finalists were asked to create celestial-inspired nail art on two hands. Because Solar Oil is cuticle oil, the judges wanted to see this section of the nail represented in the artwork.
Congrats to Emily Nash on your CND Couture winning creation. Your bespoke design drew rave reviews from the judges.
Challenge #2, CND Couture, tasked the finalists with choosing an haute couture designer and look they love and then to create a nail design inspired by this look. Because haute couture is custom-made by a skilled artisan in the fields of embroidery, stitching, and beading with high-quality materials, their final nail designed needed to be done on 10 nail tips pictured on two hands, and must contain beading, stitching or embroidery elements created with CND nail products. The Guest Judge for this week was winner of NTNA Season 2, Lavette Cephus (@beaute_asylum).
Congrats to Silvia Gago López (@toxicvanity) on your A to Z CND personal journey nail mural. The judges were so impressed by your artistry and your brilliant use of color.
Challenge #1, A to Z CND, asked the 14 Finalists to share their personal journey using the letters C, N, and D across a 10 nail tip mural.
The Guest Judge for this week was nail artist, educator, salon owner, and brand ambassador Buddy Sims.
