NAILS Next Top Nail Artist (NTNA), sponsored by CND, concluded its eighth season on October 4, when the winner of the challenge was announced during CND’s NAILATHON by CND co-founder, style director, and head NTNA judge Jan Arnold.
When it gets down to the final three in NAILS Next Top Nail Artist (NTNA), no one envies the judges. They are scoring nail art from artists at the top of their game, and the final submissions from the three remaining in the competition dazzled the judging panel.
After many weeks of passionate commitment, outstanding creativity, and impressive persistence, the NAILS Next Top Nail Artist Top 3 finalists have been named.
For Week 9 of NTNA, the theme was “Game Changer,” and only CND Shellac was used in the creation of the final looks.
And the winner is…Stephanie Loesch!
With only three finalists competing in this challenge, things are getting down to the wire. The theme was “Game Changers” and here is what the judges had to say about each of the submissions:
Congratulations to Emily Nash for winning this week’s challenge, Harajuku Punk!
