Nails Magazine Announces the 24 Semi-Finalists for Next Top Nail Artist, Season 3
Nails Magazine announced on Friday via Instagram (@nailsmag) and by email, the Top 24 contestants chosen for a shot at competing in Season 3 of Nails Next Top Nail Artist.
The list is populated with fresh faces, as well as some fan favorites from past seasons. Returning contestants include our own Sherri Traweek from Season 2 (@sherbear4331), Winnie Huang from Season 1 (@winnieisawesome), Lauren Boyd from Season 2 (@graffitinailbar), and Victoria Zegerelli from Season 1. With Next Top Nail Artist veterans competing against one of the best fresh talent pools, this is sure to be an exciting, and unpredictable season!
Congratulations to everyone who made it! This is going to be the experience of a lifetime!
How It All Works:
Starting later this summer, the Top 24 semi-finalists will face two pre-challenges that will eventually eliminate 12 of them from competition, and give us our Top 12 finalists for Season 3.
- Pre-Challenges and Eliminations - Six contestants will be eliminated in each challenge. Judging is done solely by the Nails Magazine panel of judges.
- Top 12 Announcement
- Competition begins in September, and runs through January; ending in grand fashion at the exclusive Nails Magazine party at ISSE Long Beach. At this point, the public will be able to vote for their favorite set of nails that week online at Nails Magazine's Next Top Nail Artist 2015 page (launching later this summer).
You, the awesome, amazing, loving, (am I pandering yet?) public will be able to vote online as soon as Nails Magazine posts the contestants work on the NTNA website. The public vote counts for something like 20% of the total score, so your votes could help Sherri if she ends up in a close-call situation. I urge everyone to subscribe to our blog, follow Sherri on Instagram (@sherbear4331) and Facebook (Sherri Traweek Nail Art) to stay up-to-date and quickly mobilize when voting begins!
