Here is the challenge issued to the finalists for Week #9:

We can’t talk about CND without talking about the brand’s hero product, CND Shellac. This 14+ day color system was not only a game changer for CND, but for the professional nail industry as a whole. For the final weekly challenge of Season 8, we want to see game-changing nail art.

Using Shellac ONLY, show us change you hope to see across five nail tips. This can be change in your community, in the nail industry, or in your personal life. Tips are not to be photographed on a hand for the final photo. You can arrange your tips any way you’d like and use any length and size nail tips. Turn in a 5-7 minute video diary showing us your hand painting and explaining the message of your nail art.
