The Kupa Recap Show of NTNA Week 3: Nails Are My Super Power Challenge

The Kupa Recap Show of NTNA Week 3: Nails Are My Super Power Challenge


hey everybody and welcome to the NTNA
recap show thank you so much for tuning in
I am Elaine Watson I’m your host and I am the vice president or executive vice
president Kupa incorporated I am joined by my co-host beth Livesay executive
editor at NAILS magazine and joining us on the couch this week is heavy park
with brand ambassador for this week’s sponsor who is LeChat and not only is
she guest judge but she is also the second runner-up of season 5 and NTNA oh
my god if you had one more title I just run the whole show that way
thanks so much for flying in and being on the cow horse now yeah to Caviar’s
and it look like but it looks like funny area I’m sorry I’ve been I’ve been
bugging Newton for probably every finale he sat next to me and I’ve been bugging
him for each of those to say Newton we do this show we could give you guys so
much extra air toy like please and I wrote him an email and he immediately
wrote me back and won alright we’re on it so I’m really happy I have your
commercial and have you here and yeah all that but before we do all that we
have some business to take care of don’t we yes do you want to tell the viewers
what the heck and TNA is oh right of course good idea
so nails next top nail artists is the only online professional nail art
competition it’s limitation stylus that means each and every week we name a
winner and we name an eliminated contestant each week is sponsored by a
major nail manufacturer so this week for example will sponsor by ‘glitch act so
we are in our seventh season and we are whittling down from 12 to the final
three of which Hemi was won and then the top three win a trip to premier Orlando
where we will finally name the winner of the season and the winner will score
some major prizes like cash the title and a Swarovski crystal trophy yeah I
thought this this week I would also clear up confusion as to how we’re
involved here okay good idea I never do this and apparently it’s become a thing
yeah so we are kuba we are here at incorporated in Anaheim California this
is Koopa studio and when wait join me in TNA as a sponsor
Richard was brilliant enough to say I’m gonna create a show about it which is
just too funny because we didn’t even ask for permission we just started a
show about you guys it was how easier that was our first season so when you’re
watching this show where did like that little fish that follows a shark around
which is the NTN a copy yes yeah and so the production that we do here is my
team and in in picking like which videos to play I watch every single video and
when I’m watching the videos and I’m choosing who I’m playing this season
because we’ve in the past on teaching romance today we played this idea
because I want to show you how to fix yeah what you’re doing but this season
we’ve been picking videos that we want you the viewers to be entertained by
because like television shows running and entertainment right so and TNA and
Beth have zero input on what videos exactly you don’t know until I don’t
know when so we get here right no idea until I find you the production where
you happen to be this morning yeah so yeah it’s just you tickle Elaine’s fancy
or what I think the viewers might like and you end up on my show so right and
if I want to see all the videos you can go to nails Mac dog or you can go to
ntal as Mad Dog and you should yeah because the flat image is you know just
a two wires what’s happening so last week we have to retouch on on bow which
I am so happy to because last week I had never met them in person right and now
I’ve just returned from EOS I in Vancouver and he spent time with Arlene
Courtney Britt Brooklyn and Joey and hi my friends and oh my god I’m so in love
I the mom yeah I could hold a person I’ve
known for years so what want to just recap what that
challenge was sure yes so last week was sponsored by on vote and the challenge
name was star-crossed so the theme was astrology has long been believed to have
an influence on our lives and on the natural world for this challenge on
vogue asks that you reach for the stars and create an astrological set of nails
based on your zodiac sign the design will be on ten nails with one hand
featuring your own zodiac sign and the other featuring a compatible sign
embellishments were allowed on nails could be sculpted or done tips then
placed on the actual hands yeah it was really good lots of Aries friends I know
a lot of Aries yeah so this may be a me oh there I know there wasn’t any this
week’s top three were Katie Kelsey and Alison congratulations ladies why don’t
you start with Alison’s comment so Alison the judges marveled at your
marble and magnets another week another great video from you while the judges
appreciate the range and work you’ve shown us so far we fill the set could
have had a little bit more detail but it was well done congratulations and the
general comments for Katie were you blown glass that was admired by all the
judges these nails had beautiful dimension and the crab technique was a
standout when it comes to your tutorials keep in mind that you don’t need to show
every nail if you’re repeating a process slow down and maintain the perspective
of slowing down and maintaining a perspective will only make your videos
better excellent work and so for Kelsey this set is technically ambitious and
the result is drop-dead gorgeous the judges are always looking for a WOW
factor and this week you’ve really brought
but we would expect nothing less from you Brava and this week’s winner yeah is
Miss Kelsie Waldo no as Beth gives the comment I want to make it clear what I
have done here because Kelsey happened to be on Vogue’s winner last season oh
wow oh yeah because I held up my iPad last week I thought I could do better
this week I love and what you’re gonna see is a picture of this week um this
challenge that it nails yeah last season’s challenge don’t be confused by
it but we had lots of conversations about her at the yes I show of course
with Arlene and they loved her work they’re really proud of what she’s done
and they’re really proud of her that she got it two seasons in a row they call
her Miss on vote yeah it’s so cute yeah totally yeah so do you want to give the
comment sure so guest judge Deanna stole miss Chuck who joined us last week here
at Koopa said um this set definitely has a WOW factor your hand painting is
amazing and your shape would have been very difficult you really went the extra
mile your hands complement each other beautifully there are similarities to
this set and is that you submitted last season for the challenge so even she saw
in season six champion Ashton Harlan who I do see in our chat hi Ashton she says
wow there is so much going on within this design but it works so well even
the structure is sound Bravo and then I said wow what a pose I’m striking image
and our work I like the mix of good and bad traits from the sides I thought that
was a unique idea the woman with the half face Aries skull is also really
really well done on the tiger and owl eyes are my favorite I love them on the
sides I just thought it was ingenious yeah
and then head judge Jan Arnold said absolutely drop-dead gorgeous nails
technically they are very ambitious with great artistry
precision and beautiful colorways nice pro tips – yeah yeah
yeah so we have our safe contestants this week where April Giselle Jessica
Becca and Stella and of course sadly there must be a bottom three two of
which will be eliminated from the competition
after a lab why not two of these I mean – right sorry a little long no pilot
yeah who were the actually I think so our
bottom three war boy Yana Helen and Iona and the general comments were go ahead
with sure Cebu Jana again your voice superb was quiet this week in comparison
to your music please make adjustments that we can hear
you better while the thumbs are absolutely fabulous the same attention
to detail was not brought to the other eight nails and the comments for Helen
was the judges agree that the set was clean and cohesive but some of the nails
lacked a d-cup nail for example I talked about it yes your videos are fun but
consider editing down all the elements as too many choices can make for a
fragmented tutorial right Ania Luna the judges were left wondering about your
techniques this week we feel there was a lot of opportunity lost as well as
confusion due to your video yeah yeah so Beth who is packing up therapy brushes
and joining Christi crap in the design lab Liana yeah sorry
but it doesn’t matter anyways cuz like I say every week you could be in the lab
today and stay in it until the winner tomorrow sure absolutely
so we have some No so all right I’m gonna recap we’re gonna
talk about lab at the very end okay because you have a lab competition now
yes before we go there though we have this
week’s entire challenge to get started on and this week’s challenge is
sponsored by lit chat yes who is the sponsor this week and of course our
guest judge is heavy we’re excited Beth why don’t you give us
the challenge for this week and we’ll start talking about I’ve done so nails
are my superpower um doing nails is most definitely a superpower all of our top
ten possess for this challenge though the chat wants to see one of their other
superpowers brought to life on five nail tips and I thought the example this week
was just perfect because the example is our own Hemi Park she says that her
superpower in addition to doing nails is endless caffeine intake and I have
witnessed this it is very true it’s complete you she’s miraculous um I would
like to see your nails that reflect that I think that’d be fun yeah coffee nails
oh yes so let’s add supply the contestants with Julie three-in-one
powders and nail architecture brushes to complete the challenge so we want to see
three nail art techniques used to make this set for the video portion of the
challenge make sure you are showing the three techniques you used if you decide
to use glow-in-the-dark powder please show that in the video as well so light
and dark the nail tips may not be stuck together and contestants can use other
mediums to paint and decorate nails but no more than 25% of the entire set yeah
all right before we start showing you guys what the competitors did this week
I just want to remind you that we are live in the chat if you have any
comments or questions be active we want to share your comments and if it chance
to talk to Hemi you have it takes advantage of this like especially if
you’re competing or thinking of competing and Hemi you compete in all
like you do all sorts of competitions so I thank you
I think any competition advice in general like feel free to ask Hemi what
can I say I’m an addict you are adding sleep you got to find something right
that’s what I do when I’m not sleeping I think about competition and like I tried
to compete and try to think about the next competition but we’re gonna I’m
gonna talk about our challenge yeah versus so when you know everybody
asks me to come on board for the shot the guest judge we picked out jelly
three in one because one it’s for Cyril it’s the the powder that can go with
jelly system which is Jo powder system so it is different from dipping powder
system which Newton created actually we have dipping powder but we’re we’re just
talking about jelly and it’s used with the it can be used with monomer liquid
monomer and also it can be used as an actual dipping powder so these
three-in-one powders are amazing and this is week three right right and we
asked them to show us three different technique it was using just a powder and
we sent that couple of brushes which was amazing so yeah so it’s three three
three and blossom and top three very very very good luck you’re right you’re
right all right yeah let’s see what the competitors have done and we’re gonna
start with Alison I don’t have a video for her today okay I found a few people
who haven’t been in the videos because they were just her video so darn
entertaining yeah yeah okay no so in all honesty like her theme was like
confronting your fear is your superpower and she made and she said she loves like
visual effects Mina and Halloween so she made these very scary monsters and
personify fear and the spider just freaked me out like I thought I was so
creepy it was so good it was the fear I thought her imagination came out in
the exactly the what my one Nick was the head was fierce blood and I mean I’m
looking at that guy going to share of an open skull no guarantees yeah I didn’t
catch the blood in that one I had a whole lot of other fears that went with
the time delay it was scary yeah still to the job where did you think
coming one well um I kind of lost it there somewhere caffeine
no maybe uh so first thing I noticed was definitely the eyeballs that really
caught my eyes I was like it has a common theme in building that eyeball
yarn was absolutely yeah and like in jolly her jaw yeah like in her monster
was fabulous yeah and I love that she created almost
like 40 like a multi really multi-dimensional 3d designs into her
designs the only downside that I want to add on was her her person who is
gorgeous Felicia’s yeah she’s dead one yeah ever company out here she was
lacking just slight little bit of detail compared to the monster and the spider
in the octopus and but it overall it was clean and very eye-catching I didn’t get
scared from it during my and then the oh my god she make that Pete like I want to
know right ah and she used very good three techniques and she thoroughly
explained in right video so I really really love it again she’s very bubbly
bright she’s right action nullity is absolutely video husband and
entertaining she is young she’s everything that everybody’s looking for
as a youtuber or the video like nailed video totally having reference photos in
video and in on her screen that’s absolutely fabulous so I can definitely
tell she’s using all the tools in her video making tools
and you know I thought I was greedy it wasn’t I thought she was really cool
to call it Natasha hearten yes there’s zero minute – Masha Hart was the weekend
Natasha but there was also the week of Ali yeah Ali I know people cut out
Natasha yeah my only my only down and it’s gonna be a theme through this whole
week is I kind of really wish the competitors would scale down their art
like it’s a nail art competition and for me like as a international head judge
like I feel like it’s harder to be detailed on tiny things I’ve said this
so many times I feel like it’s like a broken record but like these pieces were
were really really big pieces when she’s holding that it practically filled yeah
they’re huge yeah I would you would you would knock my socks off if you had put
that much detail into really teeny tiny piece well Ali Mike mentioned she wanted
to scale it later play with scale to draw my fact which you know yeah it’s
drama it just it does make it easier when you don’t be like yes yeah and I
don’t know if you guys can see this but honey has like a notepad and a computers
oh my god full of details no we’re just gonna be the wingman my just today I
just want to point out like there is no doubt that people are watching all the
videos taking it seriously yes they’re investing a lot of time like she came
super Mare so they’ve been stalking everybody in the Instagram for stalking
people I appreciate and then why sorry I have a question in the chat for Hemme
yeah I want to ask you from the lovely Dana Cecil she says Hemi how does
someone become such an amazing competitor like yourself so like if you
want to compete how do you wrap yourself up like how do you do that well when I
first wanted to compete it was so that I can see how I’m doing okay cause that
was a competition is a good way of finding out where you at mm-hmm in
technical fields then I got really addicted
– being in the competition arena and that was modeling and all that but when
they really went for the NTA or nil olympia because i did every day yeah the
olympia then and he na I really wanted to compete against myself so that was my
mentality the whole time because I loved it I you know even though yes you know I
can be good in certain things and I’m a natural yeah tag I wanted to prove to
like hit still dude 3d and like today and all these things I still wanted to
challenge myself like it was everything was about me against hemi-head me versus
timing at me versus Haman okay you know oh wait cami versus you know it’s or
there’s no there’s no I’m I wouldn’t punish myself every weekend for okay
Henry thusly here you guys leave off there this piece you guys leave after
you know Mike I don’t think you can’t get off through this little thing you
can’t shower after this little thing because I was pulling like you know 50
to 80 of hearts shower yes before husbands always in my office
yeah at home and I will hear him snoring like in the background then my cats will
be like you know my running around but I’m like okay Hemi I need to focus and
you know that was my you know every every weekend because I to work during
the week right and I’ll push everything back to like Thursday through Monday
usually and then Monday I’ll pass out but waking up like a Monday after in the
finish everything it was such a rewarding good feeling that you get and
I kept like doing this to myself I love that doctor you did that you did it it
really didn’t matter what the result was and what the judges were saying yes I
was taking their criticism cleanse drop like in the positive way so
I tried to improve it every every week and where I can it and I will also judge
Mayan you know in my show okay Tammy by Hemis
also judged I gotta like look at my work and be like okay well how did Hemi get
you know so you know that’s what I did and I think that made me you know keep
going and still wanting to try more we should move on to our next competitor
I’m not gonna get this shoot April this week I did pull April’s video I love
that I’ve gotten I think six videos this week to get through I want to just we’re
still not at a point where I could play everybody’s but April let’s go to
April’s video and then when we come back we’ll discuss her nails hey y’all welcome to challenge 3 of
nails next top nail artists so this week our sponsor Isla chat let chat asked us
what is our superpower well I thought and thought and thought some more and I
had a lot of ideas but the one I settled on is southern hospitality you see all
my friends love to come to my house they know I always have an ear to listen I
always have food in my fridge to feed them and I always have a glass of sweet
tea southern hospitality so I hope you will come along with me
and see what I create for this challenge oh hey I forgot to mention something
you’re gonna need one of these a tumbler of sweet tea what do you mean you’ve
never had sweet tea bless your heart starting off with our welcome nail
coated in cherry berry acrylic sculpt the welcome sign with clear acrylic
created gel polish using some topcoat the color palm leaf and Blue Crush mixin
adapt and dish those colors mixed together made the perfect shade of green
for our welcome sign don’t forget to cure often paint details on the welcome
sign and add yellow roses for friendship and happiness for the next two nails
apply a thin base coat and pour sleek white over the nails don’t forget to
file and buff smooth create the shape of the recipe card out of sleek white add
some brown alcohol ink to distress and add a recipe use the acrylic color
bearskin for the quilt use your brush to lift it off of the wax paper and fold it
into a quilt I created this aqua color by mixing Blue
Crush palm leaf and sleek white color blocking is the perfect technique to
create the quilting squares and voila a cozy quilt it’s tea time sculpt your
glass over a nail form using clear acrylic don’t forget to cool that tea
down with some ice mix topcoat and a little bit of brown gel polish to make
the tea and it’s ready to serve to make these cute little biscuits
sandwich three beads of acrylic together drawing between beads use very wet beads
of yellow and brown acrylic like watercolor to make the biscuits golden
brown mix topcoat and Blue Crush and paint details on the dish
make sure you cure often look at those cute little biscuits and look at the
gravy oh my gosh and now guess what we’re adding pepper yes I’m hungry for
the aqua color I mixed Blue Crush sleek white and palm leaf these will be our
seersucker and magnolia flower nails create a white gel polish by mixing
topcoat and sleek white this created the perfect transparency to give it a true
seersucker look mix sleek white and sunny days to make a soft yellow when
the acrylic is almost dry roll it between your fingers to create the
centerpiece for the magnolia flower you’re going to need a bunch of petals
for your flowers protip when putting your flowers
together you can use poster tack to hold everything together until the acrylic
dries I shaved dried yellow acrylic with my E file to create pollen for the
center of the flowers mix Blue Crush and palm leaf to make this dark green for
the magnolia leaves pro tip if you want a fancy font try sketching it first and
then painting it this will give you confidence as you paint and a clean look
the final look if you’re ever in my neck of the woods you’re welcome to stop by
for a visit and a glass of sweet tea thank you to our sponsor ‘glitch at and
thank you nails magazine oh and hey don’t forget to vote I’ll
leave the link in the description box below when voting is live thank you
every vote counts no April Aang really well and they said that this is so her
like this so her she’s that southern mentality yeah I really enjoyed seeing
this side of April like you were saying she was on the video hmm this week and
like showing us her mad skill set yeah reading miniature beverages um food and
I love this house for this reason like I love going – it’s real so the laws are
it’s a shitty Oh everywhere it’s so nice and you feel at home there
so I just I love I thought this was so cute and warm yeah I liked her technique
when she made the quilt like you know the earth gorgeous well and I still
flexible she just really lightly yeah but it yeah and then painted on it I
thought that was yeah yeah well my one short word or herpes
y’all yes sir art it was so sweet just by looking at it you can tell it this is
a sweet piece and in looking at her video I’ve never met her in person I’ve
seen her like me here and there yeah I think but she just was a sweet lady I
want to be invited to her place right now and the biscuit with the gravy I
need to know where that gravy like how she made the gravy on it and then like
how the pepper actually stays it Charlie you know because she sprinkled it
she’s like Brendan in the video which was amazing flakes are giant compared to
her very strange I thought again back to my comment her part this is a set of
nails this is a nail competition and those biscuits had so much detail for I
mean like four of them on one plate I’m hungry yeah I want some biscuits and I
think she improved on the lettering because I think on the first challenge I
was one of the things we said yeah you know what fluttering and I think that
this welcome sign the bless your heart like I even the recipe because it’s a
real recipe Ribble’s I just think she did a really precise job at the
lettering and actually to the Centers of her flowers yeah she made acrylic and
grant grinded up in order to have the pollen
yeah the pollen on the air a lot of time to like put in a lot more
detail total iron lining and all these a little work which I really appreciate
the one comment that I will add on to it will be everything looked great and
absolutely fantastic has like really good vibes to it the Magnolia and and
the roses they look very repetitive so maybe add one more paddle or just add
little more touched like make you look more realistic that way I’d be really
good but overall like her piece like touched my heart I was like oh I wanna
meet her and hug her Orlando she was in Florida oh yeah there
you go so everyone’s going to April’s house yes yeah Maya link my only
suggestion it’s more of an editing suggestion is
April you showed all of these elements like he made the biscuits you made the
flowers you made the distant that and at the start of the video
I always watch these without looking at the pictures first because I want it I
want to learn how you did everything and not be spoiled by what I thought I saw
in the picture what I didn’t and so as a viewer I spent I spend my time going
what do these nails look like what do these nails look like because it’s a
biscuit it’s a flower it’s a this and said that and then she builds them in
the video so for me I would be I would like to see each nail come together in
your editing you know make the biscuits and then see how that nail came together
you don’t have to record him in that order you could just edited him in that
order so that to the viewer they can see where you were taking those pieces and
where are you taking that set of nails who was it was it was in the last and
TNA one of the competitors all wasted the window I’ve been spoiled by that
every nail she did I can’t be she showed you what she yeah in that I’m gonna look
it up number on after our next video yeah because one of the competitors in
the last and DNA competition we just did she would show you a little window of
that nail while she was working on that so he knew where where she was going
with what she was showing you and as a viewer it was like how this makes sense
yeah yeah you have the reference photos exactly yeah not so random and
everywhere control so our next competitor is Giselle and I don’t have
the video on hers but I do recommend you go watch it because she had a lot of
cute for sure um tidbits in this moving parts and and she has having a
superpower she’s a knight at all yeah I know she’s
not using coffee but she’s yeah well she does actually I think did she put it in
there no she didn’t even sell doesn’t need it she says she gets very
productive like it yeah I need to know how long you’re sleeping on average
because I sleep about like 500k every day and like maybe less like tonight but
um her piece was very very cool I am already very creative Glenn’s up and it
was just whimsical yeah and it was really cute but then it was very clear
storytelling right great Drago nails so that I didn’t have to
like go look for anything right I have one comment like while I’m alive because
this also goes to any like contestant or anybody who’s out there who does not
speak English as a first crush much because I was born here so I don’t speak
English fluently so why when I was big doing the Indian name video I will
always write the script and then you know read you know down by the seconds
and just you know kind of practicing it so they all sound very you know even and
I’m not chasing the video and then the audio video like syncs up very well like
while you’re looking at it I noticed Giselle was doing that maybe
I’m wrong maybe she’s just really good at it but she had a moment where she was
burning out of her breath like a so when I did that I had a few times like that
like in the beginning so I started to put comma where I wanted to
in my script Alma and then or make a big space so you know where to pause mm-hmm
and breathe yeah while you’re doing the video and if you’re doing that like
throughout the whole video it sounds very even and you sound very
calm and very confident so you know that’s one tip for you I love that so
you know that was my one comment because you know kind of to also judge all you
need to leave your pro tip and the subtitles a little bit longer on the
screen because I was like they flashed yeah cuz I’m like okay yeah so you know
that’s that was I must be later and I have to say it was pretty quick yeah it
was pretty fast but other than that like her piece was amazing she showed the the
glowing doors yeah I loved the glowing heart and then she put in little LED
yeah yeah you don’t really have to look at it because the video actually was
really fun the video the end was the glow-in-the-dark was especially drawn
think yes so very fun yeah but I like seeing the like turn like you’re not
laying yeah yeah and then the goggles murmuring the light ball moves like
there’s moving part it was adorable yeah I like the details of adding the
craters to the moon because absolutely when they do the half moon they don’t
have to shoot smooth yeah I thought that was really cute
yeah good conversation bubbles yes they were very kid yeah good job Giselle job
um our next to competitor is Helen yeah no no shocker there’s only one of my but
she knows what we’re gonna say right okay so psychically speaking she’s
probably expecting her video this week but because I have a couple different
ones this one were not so make sure you go watch it she had some really cool
things like building the facets up on hers I was my thing that I thought was
really artists with it was a good yeah yeah I thought that was really cool so
yeah and then this isn’t real sage when I first looked at that photo
I thought she put some sage that’s wrong and it’s not she made it all so I
thought that was real impressive and then I want the mini
tarot cards yeah like Oh detailed and exactly you can tell which one she
didn’t even see it from this like yeah like so many tips tricks and details
that I found myself not writing as many notes as I would normally because I
didn’t want to look away and I popped it so many times they just wanted to watch
it off so I think she had a lot of good things I only have one thing for me this
week the teacup we talked about last week yes week gets the little ghost like
I get it psychic you’ve got I got the crystal
ball you got right you got the stones the little ghost with a bow on its head
was kind of last week teacup like but maybe dang who is this right
yeah maybe this is becoming like a signature thing for her to throw that
one element okay then you got to play that like that but yeah that it for me
it sticks out a little it’s off with the rest of when she’s one of the ones who
credited allergy I mean that’s pretty good so but yeah yeah cuz she made the
cricket ball she got the idea of lightning flattening out the product
from her watching how this video makes me like kind of go back to like Tracy
Lee uh-huh yes I totally think guys as these funny radiographers right and
they’re both very natural education order really yeah a lot of pro tips that
you can actually use in the salon my favorite weight her I heard video yeah
so far and of course you know everything looked fabulous she use very detailed
like she was she was really in detail with how she was making certain things
how she’s mixing owners and and how she was you know creating these crystal and
they were very realistic I loved so that’s it but you know everybody
should go watch her video and her son before we move on to the next company
competitor April confirmed for you Hemi in the chat that the way that she made
she says hey y’all the gravy is made from topcoat and jelly powders that’s
how she made hers she believed the griot holler looked like Rio they look so real
else did one where they mixed and poured like there’s something on a gravy there
was something else I remember glazing yeah it’s the casting time yeah okay all
right good job so onto our next competitor which is
Iona yeah sure we got another L ow in this one I know yeah um a lot of
night owls yeah she said that oh so she what she did her studio she asked her
friends what they thought her superpower was actually thought that was a really
good direction right in the very beginning though right because like your
friends sometimes are able to tell you those things about yourself better than
you are and I like how she chose chemistry and you know like calculations
she wouldn’t economic contests so clearly she’s very like left and right
brain hmm um so I just thought it was like so cool that she showed us the
physicality of like a graph it comes off she’s got her medals and her trophy from
winning competition right yeah yeah I wrote down as first cuz I was bringing
that everybody superpower as well I just put it as the smart smart all mm-hmm
so she’s got more any fan the one one little thing that I missed from well I
kind of wish she did was she was sculpting this all that it was beautiful
she was like a lot of details in it and then the result when she’d killed yeah I
was back it was kind of like translucent because she was using a little like
maybe like a latte area yeah transparent so that everyone a lot of
layers you know like in depth she could have just painted the backing like the
Batman and Ben black or white to make it really pop way my brain or added a
little more detailed that would have been amazing right
and you know in her video obviously she has a lot of moment where she’s not
talking yeah Mariah being on camera even I’m here I get nervous and I get
every anxiety on that everybody’s feeling especially who’s like boring you
know but you know add music or in a put a subtitle water heading I thought try
to give amazing and you know washing music that’s okay but you know don’t
leave it’s just so empty because you you go like it is an important part of this
boring is when you do the video because it’s about being instructive
you know I they’re making these videos and the way that they even you know Jan
said it many times don’t say III you know it’s like this is what you teach
don’t touch don’t ya don’t merit it’s about the technique right so we want to
know your technique yeah so totally this is obviously a hurdle that if somebody’s
English isn’t their first language is to hurdle that they’re gonna have but like
you said there are some things you can do the algebra sounds like title or just
say oh yeah I’m using you know jelly powder and crime and niller I have to
brush you know number eight yeah and she she it like her big in look like there
are a lot of things going on there yeah explain so I kept one where you going I
want to know what your rate and I think I guess right got first nail after the
video last week she’s got this long aisle that had layers of stuff on it and
then it was like boom there’s the nail and it was like now bowlers hanging out
cuz you know you wanna like really watch it and learn from her a total wanna like
fundraiser and yeah for her yes is yeah you know you know that’s one you know
little tip from yeah perfect as a fellow you know non-english speech perfect
wonderful one to the other great job this week Bayona the next competitor we
have is Jessica Jessica Wars niak another scary you know I know for me I
never see a buck whisper I’m so afraid but I need but no baby were one but one
came on the job okay perfect it was it was a crimped the point she’s
a whisper oh time going no don’t touch it I was like oh I liked her bug wing
technique she was one of the ones who also commented on Holly oh yes yes she
credits Holly / love the idea of mixing you know like I let Sharla everybody
give it I love it I love it so for Jessica I I kind of want to suggest like
her video was more like doing it this way not in this way okay so when I’m
looking at the video especially nail video I’m trying to learn something I
like to look at it as I’m doing some things so I actually literally flipped
my computer around and see if it’s awkward it’s not you know it’s not so
maybe she can flick the video or you know when she’s shooting she can like
adjust it so that it looks like you were doing it so I as a alright so go get it
so we call it the nail tech perspective right cuz we are a professional nail
audience so we want to see videos from the nail tech perspective whereas maybe
like a lot of consumers want to see it from the opposite side of the table
because they’re doing it themselves but I don’t want to see the nail tech
perspective yeah jessica has comfirmed know he came to visit me while I was
working yeah cuz she is the bug whisperer
yeah and Alicia’s Alisa Schmidt sorry says the tree is neat that spider was
cool-looking buddy the tree was because the doing up tin foil technique yeah she
got a lot of technique in the yellow monster to the trees called cheeto
cheeto is the shade oh yeah that is so cute my favorite part of her video
definitely was that like her personality shows through
totally and in in her piece the mini Ches yeah miniatures like has this
quirky like total on whimsical like face impression yeah like yeah that’s the
whole mood the entire side which was really a mission she’s welcoming these
bugs yes to join her let go you know prepare myself first yeah yeah well done
Katie’s our next competitor okay this one touches my inner child this one we do have the video and we get
to meet her special yeah her weekly guys yeah so this is cute you have to watch
this video right to the very end so let’s go nails next top nail artists
nails are my superpower sponsored by Lata hi everybody in today’s video I’m
going to be showing you challenge three for season seven of nails next top
nailers for this we’re asked to create a superpower and I would say one of my
superpowers is creating confectionery treats however usually the process of
getting them made gets a little bit messy so instead of making a perfectly
clean idealistic looking kitchen i made a more realistic kitchen and one that
you can see almost any day of the week in my house so it looks like the mixer
exploded cats are in the cabinets and on the table I’ve got a melon
trying to steal something out of a bowl and I myself am licking the spoon
because that is the best part of making anything in the kitchen so I hope you
guys appreciate this design as much as I do and can relate a little bit to the
hectic mess that a kitchen can be and don’t forget to vote on Monday thank you
again for keeping me in this competition and I’ll see you next time bye mix some custom colors to use throughout
the design with the gel a three-in-one powders for the background I use the
sleek white and sunny days make sure that you give them a really good mix
before pouring them into your storage container so that the color is
consistent then apply some gel base coat and dip just the tip of the nail into
the sleek white and then pour your custom color over the background finish
it with L cap layer of the clear powder and then repeat the process across the
other nails matching them up from side to side so they all have the same length
of floor so then to create your tile pattern use black paint and very thin
lines just to go across and create that grid pattern add some diluted black
paint to create some shading and then on a nail form backing create your little
figurine of yourself for as I’m doing myself and I used first a layer of sleek
white underneath the flesh tone so that the bear skin would show up as opaque
finish off that and then hold that against nail form backing and sculpt the
little girl next to it so you know that she is proportionately the right height
compared to my person and then using some eye shadow in a couple shades of
gray mixed with a sleek white three-in-one powder that creates a
really good base for sculpting your oven and your microwave and pots and pans
sculpt all the separate pieces together almost like you’re making a 3d cube like
you did in third grade and then go ahead and glue those pieces together with a
little bit of nail glue and secure them with a bit more of the powder what I
like to do is I like to draw some of the pieces out on a piece of paper and then
lay the nail form backing on top of it that gives you a really nice little
picture that you can see underneath it like a template which makes it very easy
for sculpting things like the oven door create a little hinge with a piece of
wire and two little glass beads attach that oven door to the rest of your oven
add some details like the handle a little yellow patch to make your little
3d clock or the time on your oven bake a little fire for your oven because you
know some things don’t go right repeat the same basic
process to create a little cabinet this time though instead I have a drawer as
well that’s pulled out a little bit so you’re going to need to create a little
bit more depth there stain your cabinet with a bit of diluted brown acrylic then
create all the little details for your cabinet like a countertop a towel
sticking out of the drawer a little silicone spatula for the towel we’ll
pick that up while this while the acrylic is still a bit wet and then lay
that drape it into the drawer and other details gluing everything together a
little rolling pin coming out of that pan it’s a wooden spoon you’re also
going to need to sculpt your table so sculpt that on a nail form backing as
well put it together then using the same steps as you did for making the little
towel you’re going to want to make a tablecloth so using that same blue color
so that it’s all matchy-matchy go ahead and make a tablecloth then with grey
kerlick I’m going to be sculpting the first kitty cat which is my cat max so
on a nail form backing yet again everything is made off the nail for this
design and then assembled later make a grey cat with some black acrylic I’m
going to be making a black cat when you’re working on a nail from backing
with acrylic be conscious that your acrylic should be a little bit more dry
than you might normally use it because as soon as it hits that slick surface of
the nail from backing it’s going to spread more than you may be accustomed
to so just bear that in mind when you’re working with it
assemble everything with a little bit of nail glue put a little bit of a little
spacer on the back of it the two people so that they stick up off the nail a
little bit more and then just lay everything out onto the nails glue them
down secure them with some clear acrylic on the back side so the pieces are a bit
stronger and just get everything all set up I added a couple extra details like a
to-do list and a clock mix together some gel top coat with your three-in-one
powders to create a paint and you can use this to add details to every piece
on here so I started with mixing the sleek white to create a milky white
paint when you’re doing this and using that paint it is a bit thicker in
consistency so you have to really press it onto the piece to get it to blend out
but it does blend out really nicely and it isn’t a super opaque paint so you do
get wonderful gradients and wonderful highlights with it using acrylic paint I
added a couple more details to all of my pieces one thing that I decided to do is
all of my clocks have a slightly different time on them they’re about 15
to 20 minutes spaced apart that just how my life seems to go sometimes I
figured that would be a nice little touch add details to the faces of your
to pieces on my little to-do list I decided to write well to do to start
with but then underneath it I have three things to cross off and all of them say
nt na because that seems to kind of be the driving force in my life right
around this time I added details to everything as much as you can just add
details to a piece like this at different times add numbers where you
can add labels on things just assemble everything over my tablecloth and my
towel I applied another thin layer of gel base coat and then I sugared them
with the clear powder I made another paint out of the Blue Crush jelly powder
and then I did that for the frame on my clock make a couple little drips out of
a glitter gel and then you can glue those down in place this is for the
splatters are from the mixing bowl so I put those everywhere because I’ve done
this so many times in my kitchen when I’m mixing something especially with
powdered sugar and I turn on the mixer and it poof’s like a mushroom cloud and
I get stuff everywhere so mixer mayhem is a pretty common
occurrence in my house whenever I am baking something so finish off the
design with as many little drips as you can paint the toenails add some glossy
areas on the design especially over the windows in the microwave in the oven so
that you can see into them and that is it I love this design it is really a
very common occurrence in my household it’s just one of those things where I
look at this and I laugh so hard inside because I’ve seen this scene happen
especially with the cats those cats cause trouble too and melody Who am I
kidding we all we all have our days so I hope you guys love this and don’t forget
to vote on Monday we have been wanting to know what is your name
melody and how old are you – almost almost – you’re 20 months and what is
your favorite treat to make with Mama in the kitchen cupcakes good choice are
they yummy yeah so thank you Katie for clearing up a mystery we’ve had week

the things that you two are doing the whole time that video is on hit me never
likes to the not the caffeine eat the cats like oh man okay what are their
names max like we like God is the reason leading into the video I saw this
reached out to my little and her girls I always wanted a dollhouse and I never
had one people ya know miniature furniture thing and actually I just was
the drawer open and even though at very end of it where she was assembling it
was over like on like yeah yeah she was placing and decorating like the last
place it was Barry I got chained like throughout the whole oh my god says
really okay what’s next Oh Oh what’s the eyes you know yeah I
just think detail wise like every time I like it this I see something new I just
I love that about yeah this piece and like and I love that she made something
messy but really clean yes like messy but fine credit to her bravery arts
showing her the kitchen I thought that way it is right now mph is so brave we
talked about her sorry gonna see still showed us her kitchen yeah we were like
come on husbands you know how about these yeah ladies in there yeah yeah
that’s how my kitchen looks I’m not good thing to and they loved it when I first
looked at this I totally understood were super para it’s like I’m like okay she
must bake you know I’m like I guess I needed a splitting on boys Oh as a cat covered the door opens one time Winery you you your eyes keep wondering
like every part of everything but and then you want to go back and see it more
so that like it’s it’s a very like good like attention grabber yeah say in Maori
it’s fun it’s fun chaos yeah total of between that yellow background words
look they yell amazing nail art to me yeah tiny details like yeah it’s so much
harder to get fine details like that she put in a lot of detail even a minor you
know sibling everything so yeah yeah she went back marry and exactly louder oh
yeah yeah and I feel like you know when it comes to editing it can be hard right
cuz the splatter it could make her break rikes it’s fucking messy but she did it
like a drip and like I feel like you could have gone too far with this but
she did it she’s so she Joe big like a 5/8 time oh yeah like nail art yeah it’s
just it’s so cute and cool like I just I really love it
not on me she like you know showed a lot of like good like little bit um she also
used incorporated our product just a three-in-one powder and she really like
utilized that I feel like she was using it as acrylic for a 3d work which was
very very like clean and used a brush really well she did everything in her
video and then lay she was ever I did almost like everybody created this gel
pay with yeah I think no powder no and they were painting with it but it was
just very clear like how she’s like able to work with our prana
so from you know let’s check point of view right I really appreciate everybody
try to explain and how we’re using it but her manipulation on the tablecloth
like just just blew my mind it was just absolutely fantastic oh my god I’m so
glad to show you that yeah yeah awesome job way to go Kate job and say hi to
melody in your cap yeah Yeah right I just put put on this for
her all right moving on to Kelsey coughs lever play on this video girlfriend
that’s right video man we’re guys hard about whiling thinks she’s so clever hey
everyone it’s your girl Kelsey’s Claus and I want to say a massive thank you
everyone who voted last week we won on Vogue challenge for this week’s
challenge is sponsored by the shot and we’re asked aside from nails what is
your superpower well y’all know I can speak Mandarin but did you know I can
speak three other languages yes but let’s divert for a moment so I wanted to
incorporate this it’s just an onion that you feel there and there’s another layer
and another yeah and the five languages on the five nail tips in a super
unconventional way so what to do what to do layers unconventional nail tips got
it a matryoshka nesting doll from Russia it will showcase the five languages in a
layer like fashion in a super unconventional way using the nail tips
now you all know I’m crazy so did you expect anything less keep
watching hello Nihao guten tag hola over the shots sent us these gorgeous
three-in-one powders but no black or brown what to do
don’t fret we can make them take red blue and yellow six parts of each so you
have enough mix if you need more add equal parts to keep the ratio create
Brown by using blue and orange you can add red and green to alter the brown
shade start by buffing your nail tips the nails will be our canvas but in an
unconventional way by having heat under the nail will cause it to curl towards
the heat then you can manipulate it to create a ring solder the ends together
for the largest ring by putting the tip over heat you can gently stretch and
manipulate it be extremely careful not to burn yourself refine the shape with
an e file and by adding clear acrylic to refine the outer circumference time to
build our matryoshka use blue tack in a long sausage shape and put your nail at
the bottom use sleek white to build up the shape by sprinkling wet acrylic with
the acrylic powder you are able to mold it into a nice matroyshka shape repeat
this process to build it up cut the middle so that you have two pieces tapping the acrylic and hearing a hollow
sound will let you know the acrylic has set pull out the blue tack refine the
inner circumference with an e file always make sure they fit covering a gel
bottle with saran wrap you will build your largest matryoshka did you know in
Russia the matryoshka factory creates their matryoshkas by hand and has since
1960s vowel leche at jelly 3 in one powder works amazing as an acrylic with
monomer as this sprinkling the powder it makes molding these dolls a lot easier
file to refine the shape you will do this a lot not only to refine the shape
but also to get a nice smooth canvas using a long bit to file covers more
surface equally keep the bit parallel to the acrylic did you know in the factory
they rub potato paste on the dolls to create a smooth canvas you can do the
same with acetone no potato required when using acrylic powder as colour use
it very wet it will act as a paint try out the features with gel paint only the
skintone eyes and eyebrows carve out a smile use bare skin to create a cute
nose and use the brown mixture we created earlier for hair use Blue Crush
for a cute beret and CherryBerry for her cheeks always check to see if your macho
stuff fits we Purple Rain is a beautiful thermal acrylic that changes from purple
glitter to blue glitter perfect for our little chicas dress rubbing monomer on
the ring and then dipping it into the acrylic creates a nice texture use
cherry berry to create some white Caliente lips give her a cute little
flower in her hair with sunny days use sunny days cherry berry and the black
mixture to create our little German girls dress of course she needs a little hat for her
traditional attire use palm-leaf and sunny days use black and cherry berry
for a Chinese girls outfit you sleek weight in sunny days for her little
accents Asian culture typically has super cute dolls so she had to be
representative of this pink eye the kelsey matryoshka doll is the largest
and therefore it can have more prominent 3d work use black gel paint to paint the
word claws and seal with matte topcoat this will prevent the glitter from
sticking to the lettering apply clear acrylic and dip the netting into the
clear to prevent it sticking put netting in when acrylic turns slightly matte use
high gloss top gel sealer to paint the brim of the Hat and around the wording
sugar gold glitter to really make this hat come to life attach hat with clear
acrylic to the head use bare skin sunny days bonfire night and palm leaf to
create your onion use the end of the toothpicks as our flag sticks apply one
color first sprinkle with acrylic and this ensures a nice clean cut with your
blade this process makes color-blocking so much easier drill a hole into the
sides of your mat ryoga’s to hold their flag here’s another fun color block
apply clear acrylic first use sunny days and create a star apply cherry berry on
top and once cured efile it to reveal the design and there you have it my
super power on 5 nail tips and a totally unconventional and onion-like way Thank
You Liz shop for the awesome challenge and products did you like this design is
so please don’t forget to vote to help keep your girl in the competition
fingers crossed hope see y’all next time au revoir chews adios tsai-tien bye because I have said I think she’s like
the smartest human being I guess anybody who can speak to language is amazing
beyond – you’re like superpowers for sure and I thought it was cute or
editing that she pulled our segment where I call her an onion yeah it’s just
so layer and she’s holding the onion oh my god she’s holding it it’s a very kid
at peace uh or does it call my truss no I wrote this because I I was like I
learned a new word yeah like mitrice ishka I was a creation
at first I thought she was gonna say that she spoke Russian and I was like a
Russian – I know that yes each doll is an homage to the lately but she’s right
right and then each one is that country theme right and of course Kelsey has the
claws oh my god with the glitter with the glitter my we
were talking about this in the break about like I usually the first thing I
always look at it a nail competition is if the theme calls for nails I want to
go like where’s the nails were my first thing to go is where’s the nails right
and watching the video I go clever on you girl cuz she manipulated the nails
to work in the way that she needed him to work in order for her to get really
she calls it an unconventional way yeah yeah and I like that she she mentioned
that it was admitting that it was an unconventional yeah yeah but they know
late for a fact they following her from LA season right see she’s way more
capable of like very well capable of sculpting you know the dolls the frames
from acrylic and utilise the nail tips so you know that that was one little
thing that like left me a question but like overall it was so cute yeah I’m
angry and you know she has a great protein tips and she’s a quiet
storyteller like you’re watching her with you you always learn something
totally baby she has those facts yeah right yeah oh yeah Karen Berryman it agrees because
she’s saying her techniques are amazing the thought that must go into the
planning of a design is the basis I guess to a successful creation loving
this design these little dolls gorgeous the colors are detailing it’s gorgeous
it does like a you do have to plant like just the planning of making sure they
nestle I was gonna say the sizing is what really got me that’s where I would
have completely messed this up I just love that she kept saying can make sure
make sure it fits make sure she had to keep it every step of the process making
sure one thing went into the other I mean so just technically this is very
very like intricate in advance do you know in terms of sizing like you have to
be like an engineer or you know build something properly import portion wise
and all that so which you know like kudos to her and I love the little flags
and the fact that she sculpted all the flags into this little tiny little
flames that was really really good and that it’s it’s removable they are all
open the whole yeah and they love the outside of the could
the biggest petrushka doll is Kelsey oh yeah very personal well but I know she
can do a little bit better like in detailing you know adding little bit
more detail in the hair and you know that overall it was cute when school
very Kelsey very very Kelsey yeah and don’t you want to mention her hat oh my
god so the shot had said them you know like eight powders I believe and then to
the two acrylic brushes a scarf and had a black hat with pink rhinestones yeah
with the shit logo on that and like there were several girls who were yeah
wearing him and yes I wearing the scarf Orly put it in the picture right where
they were like hanging us and shouting for us and I just love you know seeing
Kelsey with the hair that I was not wearing
appropriate I agree good move well done Kelsey all done so this week I decided
for everybody to get to know Rebecca please
I will you start listen I am the most amateur knitter me too I think they did
it right I can make dog sweaters like no others I think it we are here as I had
made a purse with the help of someone else watching her in her spa chair and
knitting and the intro to this video must be not looking like mad respect
Beca for your knitting skills but you guys have to watch this video come back
on Tolley hello everyone I’m Becca welcome back to my salon this week’s
challenge was from the chat and they wanted us to display our superpower when
a set of nails now my superpower is that I am an eating speed demon I went to a
retreat where I’m dating retreat and needy who are what anyone said labeled a
speed demon so obviously that’s my superpower my favourite things in it are
Lee shawls and socks several years ago I participated in the knitting marathon
where you either are the knit things with ocular or just knit socks and over
the course of three months time I need about seven miles worth of yarn and I
only came in second one pair of socks now how to represent that in nail form
my original design sketch has a checkered flag morphing into snowflake
color-block nails flanking a demon atop a knitted mountain but not just any
diamond this is a demon from the Night on Bald Mountain sequence from the 1940
Disney film Fantasia I’m going to create it using these gel a three and one color
powders that I received from legette these can be used with their powder gel
dipping and acrylic systems I don’t have the rest of the products that go with
these systems so I’m going to be using substitutes not able to find tips of my
desired length and width I sculpted my own out of white powder this is a technique I learned from
Kirsty Meakin draw out the pattern and then apply small portions of coloured
acrylic to fill those spaces work in layers to make these sections quite tall
as we’ll be filling in the extra space with a different color acrylic later
here is the checkered flag morphing into snowflake pattern all filled in fill in
the end with sleek white the middle with a mixture of purple rain and sleek white
and the very bottom with straight / boring now it’s time to fall through the
top layers to see your design just remember to work slowly and evenly so
that you’re not removing the pattern that you worked so hard to apply here’s
the color-block nail finish filed and top coated this dip ombre technique is
when I learned from just Alexander you will need a very fluffy soft blown-out
brush now I will usually keep brushes until the handle breaks because even if
you lose all the bristles on a brush you can insert a needle and then you have a
new sculpting tool so keep all those brushes make a mixture of sleek white
and blue crush for the tip of the nail using an LED cure dip system apply your
adhesive take your extra fluffy brush dip it into the colored powder and then
tap on the brush to sprinkle the powder over the nail be careful not to touch
the brush to the nail itself repeat these steps always overlapping in color
so you get this nice gradient going down the nail I wanted mist surrounding my
demon mountain so I’m going to make it out of yarn this lime and teal
variegated is one that I hand dyed myself using kool aid make a small piece
of knitted fabric then take several strands of yarn and
separate them in the individual plies thread these plies through the live
stitches for wispy effect make some extremely tiny knitting needles using
laser beam and then thread them into the cast on edge saturate the ply with
monomer and then work a bead of laser beam down the Strand well this will
stiffen the yarn it still won’t give it quite enough body to stand up on its own
drape over a tube and create a support structure of clear acrylic continue
adding beads and holding until the yarn is arranged in place add the second
knitting needle and secure onto the nail in the movie ghost sorrel through the
myths so here I’m making some ghost frogs to add to the yarn why frogs you
say in knitting when you have to unravel your work to fix a mistake
they call it frogging because you rip it rip it happy little ghost frogs didn’t
laser beam with some Blue Crush eyes and here’s the yarn mist nails done wrap
some nail foil paper around your nail to make a base for the sculpture add
details to your sculpture starting with those furthest back and working your way
forward when you’ve blocked out your sculpture remove the excess with a D
file create the wings separately by sculpting them over a tube and then
mount them to the back of the demon sculpture I wanted my demon standing
atop a mountain of 3d knitted stitches this is a technique I learned from
Natasha Horton mix laser beam acrylic powder into the clear poly gel
eventually you’ll get to the point where you can start working with it with
gloved hands and then keep adding powder until it gets to the point where it only
sticks after you squeeze it roll into a snake
shape and then gently push towards the middle while slightly twisting apply a thin layer of your poly gel
mixture and then gently press the twisted rope into place be sure to
alternate the twist so it looks like knitting stitches I really wanted to
challenge myself to work with the colored powder so the only paint on here
is this metallic silver I’m adding to the sock knitting needles that the demon
has here is the demon nail with its removable mountain base and here’s my
finished set of knitting speed demon nails let’s see how it looks in the dark Thank You legette Thank You Niels
Magazine and thank you for watching please go vote
I like your homage to Fantasia Disney Fantasia like she comments a few times
she must know this movie really well cuz she credits it again later
Oh out and frogs like I learned so much from this video from the Fantasia to the
Front’s I said white frogs when she started doing the frogs and she you
might be asking why frog right because unravelling mistakes in knitting right
there brett-brett yeah wrong yeah yeah those are those are my takeaways Thank
You Becca you’re adorable yeah definitely is someone who like Alayna
and we’re saying like I’ve tried knitting like it’s so yeah it was not
easy for me so I appreciate that not only do you have this craft of doing
amazing me learn but you have this craft of knitting and you’re so passionate
about it and you showed it to us like she showed us her superpower like she
can it without like we were saying without even looking I might add she
wasn’t using two needles she was using like three or four she was it was the
stock she’s talking about my socks use multiple needles yeah he’s just like
working through it like nothing what is this she’s like chilling I’d be
able to find I will not look so cool I knew you like that I like that you know
you your superpower should be something you feel really confident about did she
showed us like hey I’m really good I did a marathon for God’s sake I’m sure I’m a
competitor I like I’m here more she was very confident totally like ABS her
voice was very confident about talking about this like meeting marathon my a
question question question what like one day like every day like about like the
intro like grab my attention so hard like yes it wasn’t like the highest
quality or fanciest but it like grabbed my attention I wanted to like watch what
she absolutely absolutely and she took a lot of time in the said like she created
her own time instead of using but tip out of all she’s sculpted and right
created her color blocking technique which is you know you he’s scoping Oh
IRA warning you they’re watching your file at all yeah that could be like one
of those videos that people just watch yeah since the review when you’re filing
and here at the design dollars so popular and very trendy so like for her
to like following those you know trend and she like shouted a Chris Kirstie
Merkin yes that’s why yeah she also shouted out I think she was one of the
ones who she was the other person who shouted out in etosha and then she even
talks about Ali so love this little community of yes thing going on no tech
support you know each other that’s really tech support tech support each
other and she dyes her own yarn I know that was boy lemon yellow and then there were
something else that they just like kind of messed it up but let’s talk about her
cat very because her ears on like me later I’ll put her there video with a
little brown and I literally had to like remove my head
headset like right here yeah and it wasn’t so to share with though every
video that way does she have what are their news my health but they are like
tell me everything okay tell me everything about your cats you are
please huh I mean you know yeah I’m a crazy Kelly is what the time she put
into her demon to weaken the demon not an issue we were saying we like the
shiny dragon the speed she owns it I mean any mozzie Minh but it’s like a
badass it is she called herself that yeah she’s
yeah such a bad yeah mandating a badass that’s me yeah cuz it’s not something
you would smoke like me unless you’ve ever tried it it’s hard it’s so hard
like I tried stress enough it’s so difficult after watching the video like
I kind of see like okay so now I get like this whole concept because like in
the beginning like when they just look at it it’s hard to understand I agree I
feel I got red in the green yarns kinda feel like you’ve done a old sweater
nails technique versus the new sweater nails like what she did to the demon is
what they show you if you want to do sweater nails you twist right direction
right but maybe maybe Becca will be trending with her new design of actually
knitting it and putting it on oh oh my god she was really nice yeah
yeah I need her to light each mounted needs a little bit better yeah I
definitely they’re so happy I get to share your face I wanna get to everybody
forward to her videos from now yeah for sure yeah we’ll prepare to have your
mind blown and we absolutely had to show this video
because you have to see this my first impression of your eyes did you go out
and buy these pieces cuz it’s not good so let’s go to Stella’s video and then
we’re all gonna come back with our minds blown yep hello everyone this is our third
challenge for nails next up nail artist season 7 doing nails is definitely our
superpower but this week we were asked to create a certain v nail tips
illustrating our other superpower using three different nail techniques can you
guess mine chemical engineering but let’s see more hey Google what’s the
definition of engineer engineer an individual who does precise gas work
based on unreliable data provided by those of questionable knowledge see also
wizard miracle worker so for this challenge I wanted to illustrate my
superpower by creating an implicit moving gear set with different sized
gears and an amazing planetary gear on properly engaged and fully working this
is the hardest 3d creation I’ve ever made because in order for it to work it
demands absolute precision and accurate engineering design using a CAD software
to design and calculate the gears correctly after designing the gears to
the software program now it’s time to make it real this is how the set will
look and we need to create one of each base perfectly using white acrylic
create one gear of each kind be patient and make one tooth at a time because you
need absolute precision file and keep adding product layer by
layer until you achieve the height needed it’s really important to be
patient and work in layers this way you will achieve the best result the same
way create one of each piece needed using a thermoplastic material you can
create your own molds from the gears you made before this way you can create as
many gears as you want by using your own prototype now it’s time to play and give
those gears color make sure you completely cover the mold with acrylic when it’s ready they remove from the
mold to create a cool smoke effect in the gears dip your brush first on clear
acrylic and right after on the laser beam and apply it to the mold by
slightly mixing the two colors let’s make one neon orange – again
dipping first in clear and then in color look how cool effect create the rest of
the pieces the same way you can play with endless colors and combinations using a screwdriver bring all the pieces
together look all gears are moving satisfying
right mixing BlueCross with base gel create color to paint the nails apply
two coats of color and matte topcoat a chemical engineer combines a little bit
of chemistry and a little bit of engineering you think you don’t know
what it’s written they are all chemical substances that exist in mail products
say hello to benzophenone 1 and this is benzoyl peroxide it’s used as an
initiator in artificial nail systems if you want to create your name in
chemistry style you should just go check the periodic table of elements and find
the elements that complete your name for a double colored sugaring effect applied
to powders in different places before curing this is the final set and this is how it looks at night I’m in
love with this glow I hope you like it and don’t forget to vote thanks for
watching but for me I will say first impression
when she started working on this I felt like those gears look like she fought
like they were bought they look plastic and fake and then when she starts
building that first gear she did it yeah one at a time and then tooth by twos
yeah and I news I actually wrote it down cuz she called it the polymer
thermoplastic mold right cuz we all use a lot of play-doh that’s a really good
molding technique the nails but that one I want some of this thermal plastic
stuff I have some how do you that was pretty cool yeah and then so clever girl
to be able to make the one repeating gear for time and then even mix it up
with some clear powder in there yeah whatever her superpower was chemical
engineering that was a human 3d printer yeah like if you know like how does 3d
print like this is how you do it ready cuz you know you’re casting it like on
the computer and then I’m so glad she showed opening with the AutoCAD that she
used her engineering and started with the concept and then ready to building I
was right and so artfully done with the color color background and using the
periodic tail table name her lab yeah it’s and it glows in the dark
yeah which is so satisfying I mean she used the orange and the neon orange
right yeah and then the cool and dark laser beam powder so when when she turns
off the light it like really pops because she also you know gonna be like
I think that blue light underneath like behind it so it glows in different ways
it was and of great contrast because the her
gears really exactly exactly and you know it does color combination I’m like
very very happy to see it’s impactful and I mean just to think of the pure
engineering of everything lining up exactly I just think like in terms of
ambition and like technical skill rate she really went for it and I think this
is the kind of thing like this is the ambition the people are looking for like
we said that wow factor you can tell from the comments to Trina says skill
Stella skills which is so true and then like Karen Berryman I love that she’s
verbal with each you could just see the process of her watching this video
comments here she’s just like commenting on each one it’s so cute she’s the one
of them was wow this amazing superpower love it yeah so chemical engineer right
and that’s her day job I also love – she like put in the chemistry and I will say
that’s the tip of the hat to Jan because when we did the oume when we went to the
museum yeah they showed the periodic just it’s this kind of loop look this
background yeah or when they created that better in the loop right the
monomer yeah well done okay you you and Kelsey are the smartest people I know
all right so that’s our competitors make sure you all go vote for them because
yes it’s still open and we have to do a but we still have the Indy design lab to
cover because we now have two competitors right in the design lab
Christy homolog who was in there already waiting but who is she going to go up
against and she is going up against Brianna Ratto gistic look at I finally
can say her name that’s what I want to say so there was a
theme this week and I put it in there do you recall it boy okay cuz I was gonna
say it right into my notes yes because we’re loosely based the last challenge
last-chance challenge themes after the weekly challenge yeah so since on vogue
theme was star-crossed and I played with astrology this theme is starstruck so we
asked these two competitors to hand paint a portrait of someone they would
be absolutely starstruck to meet okay so the first thing we’re gonna look at is
Christie’s I’m gonna read what she had to say and Beth you can read the other
one from Brianna but she says when I saw the first Last Chance lab challenge I
instantly knew I’d choose Marilyn Monroe she’s one of the most beautiful women
who ever lived and has a memorable personality I always
admired her since I was a child I’m sad that I can’t meet her anymore my
opponent will be Boyana the queen of portrait painting so I had
to improve my technique and that you are so cute that she even says that you know
I just fell in love with you a little bit more I had to improve my technique
in this short time I chose a very difficult face to paint for the first
time I used gel paints for this the background is simple black helps to
bring the face more alive I painted the darker colors first and little by little
added more lighter colors to it between the layers I only flash cured the design
and always used a dry brush to wash the colors together in the end all the
little brush strokes will be gone when you put the top coat on top it was
challenging but I really enjoyed this last chance in this competition and I
have to say she stood really good I knew right away it was Marilyn Monroe I
didn’t I did yeah you can tell from the far yeah yeah yeah for sure I without
knowing what the challenge was you sent me the picture yeah while we were in the
airport one day and I immediately knew this is Marilyn Moreau not gonna like be
in it I thought it was Tom Cruise I think I got it Adam Levine baby I I think that her shading and and
highlighting on Marilyn Monroe’s collarbones priming the shading is like
really phenomenally good work so much conscious and it pops yeah really
excellent I’m so I’m impressed with her going that’s just me not doing good
um why don’t you give us a boy honest sorry about not Tom and Adam I know why
you gave me this one because of the name okay
so forgive me in advance no one I don’t follow tennis I apologize so I have
decided to paint the portrait of someone I admire and I would be honored to meet
that person is Novak Djokovic I’ve got me I would think Serbian tennis player
who is currently ranked world number one in men’s single tennis he’s a six-time
ITF world champion and a five-time ATP year-end number one ranked player
Djokovic has won numerous awards including the Laureus World Sports Award
for sportsman of the year four times and the 2011 BBC overseas Sports Personality
of the Year award Djokovic has won 17 Grand Slam singles
titles 5 ATP Finals titles 34 ATP Tour Masters 1000 titles 13 ATP Tour 500
titles and has held the number one spot and HP rankings for over 275 weeks he’s
the only male player of what all nine of the Masters 1000 tournament his
foundation the Novak Djokovic Foundation launched in 2007 as an advocate for
childhood development and inclusive preschool education that enables
children from disadvantaged communities especially in Serbia to grow up play and
develop in a stimulative creative and safe environment Wow lot of sports stats
Wow Lori Morris for stats that my brain
could have nobody on are you a big hero you’re human
yeah okay I didn’t learning yeah yeah but again like you know Christie was
cool to call out her pain is very real as a portrait artist so yeah I
definitely think this is a tough a tough competition and I give both of them like
a lot of kudos for for showing up and Christina for going up against someone
you know is really good at a particular skill moment okay
wish I was straight on it’s true I just pulled up this looks exactly like him
yes he does say that I’ve got a strain on portraits the painter the hardest yes
you have to get the eyes right that I know is the right shading because
they’re in a bath structure and in the faces and the chin we really have
elation right there on the bottom than it is on the right he’s got really
amazing but more you look at him exactly Rock ye yeah exactly
gruff that’s what I’m saying that’s weird Oh shading a man he looks like
Adam Levine doe said and a little Tom Cruise just a little yeah can you turn
oh yeah they’re gonna they’re gonna zoom in on your computer
Oh what about it here are we to your camera hello errands errands bringing it
in just try to pull that picture okay can you get it and you get it there he
is yo where’d it go so now can you just
explain yeah please do so for the CND last chance design lab Jan is picking a
winner and we will know who that winner is by Friday but there’s no public
voting nope it’s all on Jan right but you can still go to NJ Neil’s matcom you
can see both the entries read the descriptions you can see all the videos
and nail sets we just talked about and public voting closes tomorrow at 11 a.m.
Pacific Standard Time so make sure you’re voting you mean vote for one or
more people however you would like so just keep that in mind
yeah so next week we have a new sponsor and a new challenge bat if you want to
give that new challenge yes next week we’re going to Las Vegas so when you
have Vegas vacation sponsored by glitz accessories and such so when you hear
the word glitz it’s hard not to think a fabulous Las Vegas glitz challenges you
to create a design on ten nails inspired by flashy Las Vegas the design must
consist of a combination of 4d gel crystals and gel paint the final design
must contain at least 60% glitz crystals and the video diary you submit must show
how you adhered the crystals to the nails using the glitz 3-step method the
final look must be photographed on to actual hands I’m really excited and
Ashton is from Las Vegas so I can’t wait to hear her thoughts from her yeah so
make sure that you go to OPI and I mean oh my god I wrote that in here’s my
energy dam in my brain trying to say what I’m gonna say tonight and ntna.nailsmag.com and vote speaking of OPI though tonight Beth and I will be at the
big party announcing who the winner is of that NTNA so tune in tonight
you’re gonna have some pop in live videos of us yeah I know the big award
ceremony when I do live and then Nancy is gonna be with us so she’s gonna be
filming well stuff maybe some interviews yeah of the winner and of course tune in
weekly we are here we’re Cooper the nails mag every Wednesday at 11:00
a.m. Pacific time thank you so much heavy thing flying all the way here
joining us on behalf of live chat and Newton my buddy Newton I love him
