Nail Art Stamping Contest Spring 2012

It's My Blog Anniversary! To celebrate I'll be hosting my first ever Nail Art Stamping Contest. The theme for the contest is "Anything Spring" and your mission is to create a nail design inspired by the spring season.

There will be a total of 5 prizes. Yes 5 prizes! There will be a 1st place winner and 4 randomly drawn winners. This is to encourage those who are new to stamping to participate! I really want to encourage stampers at all levels to join in on the fun =D

You can select which random drawing you would like to enter from the list of 4 prizes below. One winner will be drawn for each random prize. For example, if there are 5 entries for the Holland polishes, you will have a 1 in 5 chance of winning the set! I will use Random.org to select the random winners.

Rules
1. You must submit your entry using the Inlinkz tool (super easy - click button below).
2. You must use some type of nail stamping in your design.
3. The design must be on your own nails. Please show at least 4 nails.
4. The design must be your own, created by you, and not previously published (Facebook, Blog, etc..).
5. Water decals, nail stickers, nail wraps and nail foils are not allowed. Feel free to use any other embellishments you like outside of these items.
6. One entry per person please.
7. This design contest is for my readers so you must subscribe to enter.
8. The 1st prize winner will not be eligible for random drawings. You can only win 1 prize.
9. Open Internationally except Italy, Llarowe does not ship there. Please be aware of shipping restrictions prior to entering. Julep only ships to the US and Canada.
10. The deadline for submission is March 21, 2012 (7pm US Central time). My blog anniversary! This should give you plenty of time to come up with cute Spring ideas.


Judging
1. The designs will be judged by me and a panel of nail stampers and bloggers.
2. The designs will be judged based on theme, creativity and originality.
3. If you do not win 1st place it does not mean we don't love your design. There can only be 1 winner and 1st place goes to the person with the most votes.
4. The judging decision is final.
5. Judging will be for 1st place prize only. All other prize winners will be randomly chosen using random.org, according to which random pool you would like to be added to.

What Can You Win?

First Place Prize
-Layla Hologram Mercury Twilighth (yes the new amazing holo!)
-Layla Magnetic Goldent Nugget
-Layla Magnetic Purple Galaxy
-$25 Llarowe gift certificate (get your Lynnderellas, Ozotics, HITS, etc...)

4 Random Draw Prizes
-Cheeky Image Plates Bundle (26 plates, 160 designs)
-Essie Spring 2012 Collection
-$75 Julep Gift Certificate (online use only, excludes Spa services)
-4 of my favorite OPI Holland Shimmers (DutchYa, Rotterdam, Herring Problem, Pedal Faster)


All of the prizes are new and were purchased by me with the exception of the Llarowe gift certificate which is graciously provided by Inlinkz. Thank you!


How do I enter?
1. You will need to "host" you photo using one of the free sites: Flickr, Picasa, ImageShack, Phot0bucket, etc. They will give you a URL for your photo.

2. Upload your design by clicking the button below, the blue frog that says "add your link". Input the URL from the host and fill out the required fields so that I can contact you if you win. If you have a blog, you can make a post, then use the URL of that post instead. A link back to this contest would be appreciated but not required.

3. Add a message in the comments section on my blog to let me know which random drawing you would like to enter. Please ensure your username matches your picture so that I can enter you in the correct drawing, or clarify which entry belongs to you in the comments. I cannot be responsible for non-matching entries or confusion due to mislabeling.

4. Bam you're done! Feel free to link your picture back to your Blog! More traffic for you ;) Just make sure you link it back to the actual post. If you don't have a blog don't feel discouraged, you can still enter.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I tried to make this as easy as possible! Any questions? Add a comment below and I will try to clarify.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Sorry,I'll write on english:S
    Can we make freehand nail art,or just stamping?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Thanks Ivana I have you're entry.

    @Nina. I'm not sure if I understand your post completely but some free hand nail art is okay as long as there is stamping somewhere in the design. Hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi Nina. Freehand is fine as long as it has at least one stamp in there somewhere.
