Celeste created a girly glam meets church look for her client Samantha and her dog Dolly.
Even with her severe dog allergy, Celeste wanted her client comfortable. Dolly was given the royal treatment and a front row seat.
The phrase “love thy neighbor” was being put to use as competitors shared supplies from the Nail’d It wall of polish.
Robert decided against using lace for his client Vivicca’s “bird finger”.
All three finished Quick Dry looks were sinfully beautiful!
You can see how the contestants sketch out ideas before the Elimination Challenge and even lay stones and polishes.
Nail’d It host, and nail art connoisseur, Adrienne Bailon checks out the art in progress during the long 6 hour challenge. She liked the point on Lauren’s stilettos.
Robert kept his shoe-spiration and his notes close by during the final round.
The entire Nail’d It set is covered in nail candy. Celeste took a few minutes away from creating her stiletto set to check out the options for charms and adornments.
With cameras inches away, the models have to sit statue still while their nails are being worked on.
Lauren’s station was filled with color as she stacked vivid acrylic and polish onto her fashion forward stilettos.
PRO TIP: Use a wax pencil to gently pick up crystals and stones with precision. Your bling will stay shiny and you can get better placement.
The models and contestants are given a break to eat and relax before final judging, this is also the time everyone on set gets to examine the art up close and personal.
Very few people are used to 5 inches of acrylic on their fingertips but the Nail’d It models are professionals and are able to make due with the limited dexterity.
Although their vote does not count, the models love their nails and are happy to have the gorgeous designs on their hands.
Once the winner is announced, the crew turns down the lights, and it is on to another day and another round of nail artists ready to fight it out for the $100,000 grand prize.
