This Contest Has Ended!
It's about time I posted this contest! Now remember, this is set up so I can get to know you a little bit. However, it's definitely not the usual 'get to know you' routine. There's no personal questions or give me one word to describe you type of thing. Instead, I want to know how your mind works. Through inspiration.
Yeah, let me explain how it's gonna work.
PLEASE READ THE RULES CAREFULLY!!
I'm going to provide you with a picture that you must use as inspiration for a manicure, makeup look, or whatever. What you do is up to you, but you must explain how the photo inspired you to create your manicure/makeup/etc. Anything goes!(The picture is below the rules!)
Entries will be ‘judged’ on inspiration to look execution but not necessarily artistic ability. If you’re not a pro, don’t worry! I’m not a pro either! It’s about where your mind goes when you look at something and how you translate that artistically. Remember, other forms of artistic expression will be accepted! If that’s what you feel inspired to do, go for it! But remember to explain it!
After all the entries are in, I will consult my panel (i.e. my bff Abby, and random family/friends) and we will determine the top five. Again, I want to stress that it's not about artistic ability! Though I'm pretty sure you will all do amazing things! There's talent in this group! Once the top five have been picked, I will post them--with their inspiration explanation--and all of you will vote for the winner and a runner up!
That's right. Two winners. Two sets of prizes.
Before I show you them, here's a rule recap:
1. I would like everyone to be a follower, simply because it's a part of my 'get to know my followers' kick off. International followers can participate!
2. You must use the picture provided. (Below) This is because it's cool to see everyone's take on the same thing! And it's kind of a fun twist...at least I think so. :)
3. Please send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 22, 2010 @ 12am CST
4. Please submit only one entry. I want to see how the photo speaks to you initially, not after three or four attempts. ;) *EDIT* You can submit more than one entry if each entry is a different from of artistic expression. (For example: one makeup look and one nail art OR one drawing and one makeup look, etc.)
5. Have fun with it!!!!!!!
Now for the photo. I did a random web search and picked one that I thought was really interesting and I think you guys can go crazy and come up with some fabulous ideas!
I'm sure you've been patiently waiting to find out the prizes, that or you've scrolled down just to see them before looking at anything else. (Sidenote: The prize sets will probably get added to before the deadline, I'll keep you posted.)
1st place will win this set:

Before sending me an entry, please read the rules! Make sure you follow them correctly! There have been too many incorrect entries, so please read the rules! Remember, it's a contest not a giveaway!
If you have any questions at all, leave a comment or email me! I will answer them quickly! Please make me aware of any confusion right away!
Feel free to spread the word about the contest, the more the merrier! You have permission to use any and all of the photos in this post to do so.
