Nail’d It Episode 5: Nail Gallery

Cover 60

Angela, Chris, and Lakia (“Miss International”) went head to head this last week in episode 5 of Nail’d It! Their initial Quick Dry Challenge required them to create wearable nail art based on their clients’ nails using a striping pen. Angela may have won the first round and gained an extra half hour in the final challenge, but it was international competitor Chris who ultimately pulled ahead. His Elimination Challenge manicure for the theme “opposites” featured land and sea: jumping fish on one hand, biting snakes on the other. Check out the competitors’ nails from this week’s episode
