Meet the Judges Nail Battle Royale Mean Stinks Glossed & Found_1

EMMA ARNOLD, TRESAWESOME.COM
FILL IN THE BLANK: MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH NAIL POLISH STARTED ______ .
When I got a gel tip/air brush job my junior year of highschool. It turned out to be a total mess to remove, but I was just dazzled by my glittery rainbow talons.

ALL TIME FAVORITE NAIL COLOR?
I’d have to say Love Bomb Lacquer Bikini Beach Bellini. It’s the perfect shade of Mean Stinks Blue.

PROUDEST MOMENT AS A TEENAGER?
Unfortunately my memory barely dates back to last week, but I was very proud of myself for being the only sophomore to make varsity cheerleading sophomore year. Especially after I didn’t make the poms squad the year prior. A great example that great things can come out of disappointing situations.

NAIL COLOR OF THE MOMENT?
Ginger + Liz Swagger. It looks like gold suede. There’s nothing like it!

GOOD HIGH SCHOOL MEMORIES. GO!
Getting into my top pick of colleges was one of the most exciting moments of the teenage years.

WHAT’S ON TREND ON YOUR NAILS THESE DAYS?
I love monochromatic, but matte & glossy applications. And I can’t get enough of Essie Hot Pink—it makes me think of summer beach days!

WHAT’S SO COOL ABOUT SCHOOL?
Being in 8th grade and having the younger kids look up to me.

FAVORITE PART OF #NAILBATTLEROYALE?
It’s crazy how small and detailed these manicures can get!

PROUDEST HIGH SCHOOL MEMORY?
Homecoming King. You better believe it. And actually, it just might be my proudest memory to date. I still have the crown.

FAVORITE SPRING NAIL TREND?
I love a pale pink or white nail. So fresh. So clean.
