You might remember my post from awhile ago, where I aired my thoughts on why people shouldn't be so squeamish about showing their pretty pedis off. I've teamed up with Debbie (a.k.a WonderfulWolf) to hold a toenail art contest to get people more motivated about showing off their toes! It will be held on Instagram and run from today to the 17th. I'll have the rules further down, along with prizes.
I wanted to get in on the fun too, so here's my pedi to get you into the spirit of things!
I started with Color Club Eternal Beauty, then I stamped with Color Club Right On. I seem to run into this problem too often, I never pick colors that contrast enough. I used BM-407 on my big toe, it's a cameo. Then I stamped a floral pattern on the rest of my toes with BM-708, I couldn't get it to show up in my pictures at all sadly.
And now we get to the fun part! I'll be giving away two prize packs for US candidates, and there will be two prize packs for UK candidates, hop on over to WonderfulWolf to check those out!
This is the runner up prize pack, starting from the top left to right is: Wet n Wild Wild Shine Lavender Creme, Wet n Wild Wild Shine Caribbean Frost, Color Mates Little Blue Box, two unnamed L.A Colors polishes, e.l.f Purple Dream, L.A Colors Color Craze Current, an unnamed e.l.f polish, e.l.f Nude, L.A Colors Color Craze Splash, L.A Colors Color Craze Sea Siren, and a Color Mates nail art striper in Tangerine.
And here's the main prize pack! From left to right is e.l.f Sea Escape, Color Mates Cloud Nine from the Halo Hues Collection, Revlon Parfumerie Autumn Spice, stamping plates Pueen 71, and Bundle Monster BM-416.
