We’re pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Presto Gel Challenge!
We're so grateful for all of the incredible nail artists who participated in the challenge and made it such a successful fun event. The PGC judge team has sincerely enjoyed looking at all the creative art works from such gifted artists all around the world. Thank you again for taking the time to join us and really surprising us with your creativity! With over 200 beautiful designs submitted, it was not an easy decision for the PGC judge team to choose only three submissions. They found the entries to be very diverse in their originality and were truly impressed by the quality of the entries. Congratulations to TEE FISHER (aka @nailgurlnyc), for receiving the most votes from the judge team and being selected as the Presto Gel Challenge Grand Champion!
We also want to congratulate all of the nail artists who entered; we received many outstanding designs. Our only regret is that there can only be four winners.We are looking forward to seeing you all again at the next Presto Gel Challenge! Get ready, the next winner may be you!
Grand Champion: Tee Fisher : @nailgurlnyc

"The embossing perfectly portrays the feeling of fall. The squirrel's face is very realistic." ーAGEHA
"Excellent, unparalleled sculpting technique." ーMiHO NAiLS
"I absolutely feel like this is “Fall” in every way. Sitting in firelight enjoying the atmosphere in a cozy sweater, watching the seasons change and counting down the days until each holiday arrives. This set absolutely captures each moment and reminds you why this season is the best season, its not yet cold and its not too hot but nature frozen for a moment. This demonstrates so many skills from sculpting to painting and it is very original and creative as well!." ーALEXIS HICKS
