This week, judges reviewed last week's challenge "Nails Are My Superpower" top three and bottom three, as well as winner Stella Sampson, who engineered an intricate wheel design that Jan Arnold called the most innovative nail entry the judges have seen "in the history of NTNA." Major props to Stella on her Stella-r design!
Then, Elaine Watson, Beth Livesay, and Guest Judge Nancy Tran reviewed dazzling nails inspired by Sin City, featuring lots of showgirls, flashing lights, sparkles, and the infamous Vegas sign.
The competition details are as follows:
"When you hear the word “glitz” it’s hard not to think of fabulous Las Vegas. Glitz challenges the Top 9 to create a design on 10 nails inspired by flashy Las Vegas. The design must consist of a combination of 4d gel, crystals, and gel paint. The final design must contain at least 60% Glitz crystals and the video diary must show how the Top 9 adhered the crystals to the nails using the Glitz three-step method."
See all nine entries on at nailsmag.com and stay tuned next week to discuss the winner of the Vegas challenge, and see the week's new entires!
