UPDATED: Reminder: Nail Art Contest, empowering women!!

Hello everyone!

I just want to remind everyone about the nail art contest I'm running with Inspire Me 2 Aspire! The theme is 'Empowering Women', and the prize is a $50 gift certificate provided by Llarowe. As of right now the number of entries are small, so your chances of winning the contest are great! You have a few days left to enter, so please check out the details listed below. :)

I also wanted to remind you that Inspire Me 2 Aspire needs female mentors for teens, to take part in a chat event on International Women's Day (March 8th). To be clear, you do not have to sign up to be a mentor to enter the contest, these are entirely separate. But please take a minute to check out the link and consider mentoring. Just a few words can make a huge difference in a young girl's life. There is no obligation outside of the chat event, but of course if you want to be a mentor on an on-going basis, we'd love to have you do that, too!  The last day to sign up for the chat event is Tomorrow, February 15th, and we need you!!

But back to the nail art contest. :) Please be sure to post your entry and your description onto the timeline of the Lacquer Or Leave Her! Facebook page; this link will take you to it.  I will then upload it to the contest album for you. See below for the details about the contest.

Thanks for reading! Xoxox.

Here are the details about the contest:

  • To submit your entry, please upload it to the Lacquer Or Leave Her! (LOLH) Facebook page, which you can find by clicking here.
  • One entry per person, please.
  • The manicure must include at least 4 fingers of one hand; you don't have to include the thumb in your entry, but we'd love it if you do!
  • Please include an explanation of why your manicure fits the theme. This may be especially important if you do a design that is more abstract than literal.
  • The deadline to submit your entry is noon on February 20, 2013. 
  • Since Jenny is not a nail blogger and doesn't follow nail art blogs (she doesn't even know who Scrangie is--OMG), she will be the unbiased judge who will pick the winner, along with two honorable mentions. Her decisions are final.
  • The contest is open to anyone who wants to enter; Llarowe ships internationally to most countries, however there are some exceptions, and it's up to you to make sure you can use the gift certificate should you win it; we can't make substitutions. 
  • Pictures submitted to the contest may be used by LOLH, IM2A, or Llarowe, with proper photo credit to you and/or your blog.
The nail art entries for the contest will be posted to the LOLH and IM2A Pinterest boards; they will also be featured on the IM2A site, in an article about the contest and event (we will post these as the come in). Finally, the winning entry will be featured on the cover of IM2A's Facebook page for a month!
