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.
Emily Nash @nailsbyem of Elkhart, Indiana, was named the winner by a judging panel that consisted of Arnold, along with Judge and Producer Beth Livesay, Season 7 Winner Giselle Caballero, and Judge and Game Master Winnie Huang.
“I have been a nail artist for seven years now,” Nash had said at the outset of the competition. “Art has been a passion of mine since I could hold a pencil, so being able to create a wonderful career out of it has been the biggest blessing ever. I specialize in all hand painted nail art, especially characters and small details. I love that I get to do my dream job every day!”
The NTNA Season 8 results and rankings of the Top 3 Finalists are:
Winner: Emily Nash
First Runner Up: Stephanie Loesch @_Stephsnails_
Second Runner Up: Jessica Warzyniak @oohnicenails
Judging was based on video submissions, written descriptions, and final photos from the Top 3 contenders.
Nash will receive a gorgeous crystal trophy from Preziosa, a cash prize and the opportunity to collaborate with CND.
