Hi everyone!  Today is the six month blogiversary here at The Lacquerologist!  I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do to celebrate and I decided to host a nail art contest!  I have loved participating in these types of contests, and I am excited to give that opportunity to my readers!  It's a great way to get your blog out there to potential new readers, have some fun, and maybe win a prize!

As far as a "theme" is concerned, I have decided to ask you all to create a manicure that falls under one of the prompts from the recent Abstract Nail Art Challenge!  Pick day 1-14 and let your imagination run wild!  To see my Abstract Nail Art creations for some inspiration, click [here]!

  • Entries must be submitted by August 5th, 2012 at 11:59pm through the InLinkz tool below.
  • One entry per person.
  • You must follow The Lacquerologist via Google Friend Connect to enter.
  • Old manicures are acceptable for entry, but new ones are encouraged! (meaning you do not need to create a brand new manicure for this contest if you don't want to!)
  • All manicures must be your own work, on your own nails.
  • Create a blog post about your entry and submit it using the InLinkz below.  If you do not have a blog url to enter in the InLinkz tool, you can link to a photo sharing site such as Photobucket, etc.  Please be sure that the url you use goes directly to the specific manicure you are entering!
  • Open internationally!
  • Must be 18 or older.
  • By entering, you give me permission to re-publish your photos in the winners post and on my Facebook page.
I don't want to limit anyone's creativity, so I am not going to put any restrictions on what you can use in your manicure!  Let your imagination run wild!!

There will be two winners, one for overall quality nail art creation and one for overwhelming effort!  Winners will be chosen by myself and a panel of non-blogger judges to be selected by me (husband, mom, friends, etc)!  The artist that creates the winning overall quality manicure (meaning clean execution, great creativity, quality photo, pro all around!) will receive a brand new bottle of OPI DS Extravagance, a beautiful purple holographic polish!  The artist who creates the winning extreme effort manicure will receive a brand new bottle of OPI DS Magic, a deep blue/purple duochrome glass fleck polish.  Winners will be announced on the blog.  Shipping costs will be covered by me.

Good luck to everyone!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with!  Thanks for an amazing first six months in the blogosphere!! <3
