The top three contestants of NAILS Magazine’s Next Top Nail Artist competition will be featured as CND’s NextGen Artists at the 4th annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience during America’s Beauty Show 2016 in Chicago.
For the second year in a row, CND is the title sponsor of the nail publication’s rigorous interactive contest for up-and-coming Nail Professionals. CND Co-founder and Style Director, Jan Arnold, offers her guidance and expertise as a head judge alongside Erika Kotite and Beth Livesay of NAILS Magazine.
Starting in September 2015, contestants completed weekly challenges to showcase their creativity and technical skills through awe-inspiring nail artistry. Each week, public voting and judges’ scores determined who would be eliminated and who would continue on in the competition. NAILS Next Top Nail Artist will culminate at America’s Beauty Show Chicago, where the top three contestants – Celina Rydén, Sarah Elmaz and Winnie Huang – will battle it out for the coveted title, as well as cash and product prizes and life-changing career opportunities.
The final multi-part challenge, sponsored by CND and currently underway, is inspired by Beauty Changes Lives, a non-profit organization designed to build awareness of the extraordinary career opportunities available in the beauty and wellness industry.
On Saturday, March 12, 2016, BCL will host its 4th annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience at Chicago’s Soldier Field. Beauty manufacturers will have an opportunity to showcase the work of three talented artists that represent the best of the best in the next generation of beauty professionals. It is only fitting that these three inspiring artists will represent CND at the prestigious industry event, which takes place the evening before one deserving Nail Professional will be officially crowned NAILS Next Top Nail Artist.
