Comments from our Judges
Well done, neat, classic, good looking.
The combined usage of both matte and glossy finish is really excellent.
The artist exemplifies both the glossy and matte top coat bringing out the best of both worlds with both hand painted and 3D design.
I love a good matte set, very neatly done. Giving me very warm and cozy vibes. The Shaping is on point and the matte with glossy details adds the perfect contrast. I love that it’s very wearable as well.
Amazing, flawless, exquisite execution. Your work is beautiful and the display of the trees, the texture and colors was breathtaking. I absolutely enjoyed looking at this painting it flowed beautifully and made me feel at home. Your painting, flawless the candle made me feel as if it was really lit. The cabin was my favorite. I love the color choice of The navy blue matte background. Your choice of three dimensional art was graciously picked. I love the stocking boot and how glossy it was with the gifts trickling out. I love how the snow reminded me of a light duster. Wonderfully done great job.
Comments from our Judges
I automatically feel winter vibes with this set. The face sculpture literally blew me away, insane details!! Hands down best execution of winter nails.
I LOVE how much thought and emotion went into this design. I Feel as though I could live in this wonderland because it is the perfect amount of realism and fantasy. All of the aspects are perfect for winter and truly remind me of such. My favorite is Mr. Frost bringing Winter.
WOW!!! it’s winter. The execution of the frozen man was great. I wasn’t sure if I was cold or him. I really love the texture of the tree falling over, as if the snow was heavy and I wanted to eat the cherries. Were those lights in the back of the truck? If it was that was great execution. I enjoyed how the flow of the snow really look like snow even trickling over the fence. Beautifully done.

This is Winter in every definition. Chilling sipping hot cocoa literally, snowman , wrapped gifts, elf on the shelf I mean you spared nothing. My favorite is the stained glass scene such tiny little detail and originality!
I absolutely enjoyed the different styles, textures and art. Your nails was a conversation piece the fireplace was my favorite. The display of the couple in the picture frame and a little kid/elf looking was great. The Young lady blowing the snow globe with the mittens was clever. The texture of the mittens was great as well very warm. Great job.
