Nail Art(ish) Winners Announced!

I'm soooo excited for this post!  For a first time competition host, I was shocked at how many entries I received.  They were all so amazingly creative and I loved reading the little paragraphs that the ladies included with their swatches.

In the end, I was stymied.  There were two that really just wow'ed me and I really couldn't figure out which one to choose.  So in the end, I decided to have two winners!  Oddly enough, one winner was the first entry I received and the other winner was the last entry I received.  

In no particular order, here are the winning entries:



Anna's description of why this reminds her of Spring:

Spring reminds me of babies! It's a new "fresh" season to start off the year and for some reason, people are always pregnant and having babies this time of the year (well, more babies compared to Winter or something). 

And....

Ash from Art Evolve


Ash's description of why this reminds her of Spring:

The thumb represents lovely blue skies and clouds, the index represents bugs (bug wing :D), the middle finger represents grass and vegetation starting to grow, the ring is about more things growing (mushroom! XD), and the baby is flower petals.

Both submissions were so creative and outside the box, I had no choice but to have a dual winner competition.  Congratulations to you both!

To the other entrants: I was so impressed with every other entry that I will be posting them all throughout the week.  Stay tuned!

    Ash - a mushroom? Really? You have really upped the ante for all of us in the future. If Amanda has a fall art(ish) competition I am bringing on the CORNUCOPIA. Watch out.

  4. I had to lean in really close to my screen to make sure that I wasn't imagining the mushroom. Craaaaaazy. Loved the paragraph for the clothesline mani. Particularly the qualifier in parentheses. :P
