56 NAILS MAGAZINE | FEBRUARY 2019 | www.nailsmag.com Jerilee Fair, Frenchy's Nail Boutique, Hastings, New Zealand @frenchys.nails #NTNAJerilee How long have you been doing nails? Six years. Who would you most like to meet within this industry? I really admire Lena Kurach's talent and dedication to the international competition scene. I'd also love to meet Lexi Martone because she's incredibly talented and she also seems like a super fun person. You wouldn't be caught dead without … My gel paints, some foil, and a fine liner brush. Why did you want to do this competition? I've followed NTNA for a few seasons now. I've always been blown away by the amount of talent and creativity that it brings out in people. I thought it would be a perfect way to help push me as a nail artist. When you're not doing nails, you're … Attending all kinds of events and concerts or binge watching a TV series, typically while still playing around with nail art. Lorna Andrews, Padiham, England @ninjanailfairy #NTNALorna How long have you been doing nails? Six years. Who would you most like to meet within this industry? I'd absolutely love to meet the one and only Jan Arnold. Why did you want to do this competition? I wanted to push myself to a whole other level. I wanted to prove to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to. I have followed along with the competition in previous years because I'm a nail addict and every time I saw the amazing, out-of-this-world creations I was so inspired, and I wanted a turn too. What do you bring to the competition that's unique? I feel like I bring a sense of wonder to the competition. The way I create and design is quite spontaneous and unplanned. As soon as I read words or challenges I am instantly inspired and I will begin to create and jot down all of the ideas that flood into my mind. There isn't ever a real plan as to what I will create, I just know it will always be 100% authentic and raw. If you make it to the Top 3, you will in Orlando. Slay. Kelsey Waldo, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada @kelseysklaws #NTNAKelsey How long have you been doing nails? One year. Who would you most like to meet within this industry? I would absolutely love to meet so many greats in this industry; however, if I had to choose just one, it would be Pisut Masanong. His work is absolutely fascinating and to be able to meet him would be so cool. Why did you want to do this competition? I really wanted to do this because where I come from extreme crazy nails and nail art are not commonly seen, but that's what entices and drives me. I wanted to be able to push myself to my limits and hopefully be a role model. I want to show that even if you're just starting out, if you have the will, determination, and put in the practice, you can achieve so much! If you make it to the Top 3, you will in Orlando. See the sights. This would be the first time I would be out of the country, so I would like to meet so many of my nail friends from around the world and many industry greats that I look up to. What do you bring to the competition that's unique? I think that my small town attitude is unique. I have a humbleness that I do think is important when competing.
