Viva la Nails Giveaway!

How would you like to win a box full of nail art supplies? If you're anything like me, you'd love to! (And since you're reading this, odds are you're probably at least a little bit like me.)

Enter Viva la Nails! They're having a sweet little contest to celebrate Mother's Day, and one lucky person will win a gift pack worth £29.95! (That's almost $50 in US money!) The gift pack includes water decals, nail wraps, rhinestones, glitter and more! Pretty exciting... I know I'd love to find that in my mailbox!

I know what you're thinking. Yea, but what's the catch? There isn't one. It's open internationally, and all you have to do is leave a comment telling how your mother has inspired you, then make a tweet. It's seriously easy...

But you've got to act fast if you want to win. This contest is only open til March 12, 2012, so you'd better get right on it. Hop on over to the Viva la Nails blog for full details and get started! You can't win if you don't enter, right?

Even MOAR dots!

Ahhh, raise your hand if you knew I was going to add to the dots. I didn't even wait 10 minutes before hitting post before getting my polishes out. Yea, I have no self-control.

Still, I think it turned out pretty cute. I showed my husband the before and after pics, and he likes the dots-in-dots best. He thinks there's more energy to them. Personally, I think they're just more fun this way!

Adding the smaller dots was really easy. I pulled out the three colors I'd used in the gradient along with the mid-sized dotting tool and my palette. I added a drop of lavender, put a few dots here and there, then repeated with the pink and the blue. Once I'd done all three colors, I went back and filled in any leftover dots with whatever color I thought would work best.

It was pretty random, and went really quickly. I'm enjoying the look a lot... every time I see my nails, I grin. The only thing that would make this even better would be some glitter, but even I think that would be a bit much. At least... for now. ;)

I have to admit, though... now that I've figured out an easy way to do gradients I may be doing LOTS of them! I have so many ideas bouncing around in my mind!

So what do you think? Is this a design you'd wear? Leave me a comment and tell me how you'd style this, or how you'd change it!

Why yes, I think I AM losing my mind... how kind of you to notice!
