  2. I have to go with Lunuland's Jersey Shore themed nails, because they're great on two counts -- a hilarious, awesome idea, and really great details (those tighty-whities are truly impressive).

    ReplyDelete
  3. So many great entries!
    But I think i have to say that two of them definitely stood out to me.

    1st. Soffio di Dea- the scenery near her home nail design is SO BEAUTIFUL! How fortunate to live near such a beautiful evening skyline!

    2nd. Cherie_Jayla- drawing funny faces on paper in her kitchen to make her two year old laugh was really adorable and truly feels like a nail design that feels like "home"

    wish time hadn't caught up with me. really wanted to enter this one. oh well. Congrats and Good luck to all who put in the time and effort!
    All the designs look FAB!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'll go for Simply Rins, the one with moving eyes. Her idea was very unique. Just by placing those moving eyes that's usually just used for other craft purposes, she totally reinvented modern nail art. It is both fun and funky. I also loved how each member of her family was represented. It's like bringing her family together if only through her nail art, including her dog! Brilliant!:D
