Hello everyone, I'll get right down to business first. Here is the 1st name I picked for the Tis the Season Contest.
And then I drew to find out who gets 1st prize.
Congrats to you both! Stephanie from Imperfectlypainted blog (grand prize) and Discriminating Diva (2nd prize). Please send me your addresses within 48 hrs (scyren at yahoo dot com). I will send them right out.
Now for some fun. I entered CaribbeanIllusion's Holiday Nail Contest. Here are my 2 entries.

I did these nails for a contest. They are fun and festive! On a sad note, I had to cut my nails after this. I was just had to much breakage. So, I cut them down alot. I'm trying not to be depressed about it. They would be even shorter but I still have to use glue on one of them cause it broke far down. Sigh. Oh well. Hopefully, they will grow back in a few months.

Hello everyone, I attempted to enter Madam Luck's contest. I kind of did this one for fun with no expectations. I have never done a makeup tutorial, heck, most of the time I don't even wear it. But because I was having a brain fart when I read the instructions, I ended doing a nail design and makeup design when I really didn't have to. Oh well. The contest is that you either create a nail design inspired by a makeup look or vice versa. I did both. For the nails, you really should at least watch the beginning of the video to see the color (which I had a hard time capturing with pictures). I used the dragging method. For the makeup, I decided to go very dramatic. I'm linking both videos at the bottom.
Here is the makeup:

Hi! Today I am sporting a blue silver abstract. I used the China Glaze Cheers to You polish from the Tis the Season collection and some nail art liners. I also did another experiment I'll show you below using the paints I used for my ornaments. Not sure I will do it again but it was an interesting experiment none the less. I can't really go into detail because I have never seen anyone do the ornament designs that I do So, it's an ancient Nikki secret. Anyway, let me know what you think!
