  1. I've been following you since you were featured on Geekologie with the Bacon fingernails! I love to read you every day and have enjoyed all the silly nail creations through out the year!


    I would probably make something frosted and ethereal looking with colors like Eyeko Vintage & Rain, with swirls of Zoya Crystal! I looove those three so much! ^__^

  2. I've been reading for months and clicked the GFC button last week. I would love to immortalize Clarins 230 and OPI La Boheme in a GKD pendant!

  3. I don´t remember when I started following the blog, but was a few months ago and it took me 2 days to check the whole archive. Also don´t know which polish I would combine, it´s 8:50AM here and inspiration doesn´t come at that time.

    I would love to make a pendant with OPI DS Original, Zoya Mimi and Wet n Wild Black creme :)

  5. I'm a follower and have been since the beginning of the year. That Pendent is beautiful. Gives me a Starry Night kind of vibe. Love it!

    If I could create my own piece I would use Orly's Goth swirled with Orly's Shine and maybe a touch of CG Fairy Dust for that added holographic sparkle.

  6. I've been following since June, and I think your marble design titled Molten Metals from June would make such a cool pendant. (Milani Metal Gear, Molten Rock, Hot Metal and Melt Down.) So awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  7. That sure is a very attractive pendant! And the material used is special, too!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hi! Been reading you for 6 months, and following for just two weeks. I started painting my nails because of this blog, you know? :D

    I'm sorry but I have to copy the last entry: I loved your Milani Molten Metals entry. I even tried to buy them, but it seems they've been discontinued :(((((((((((

    Thanks, you're great :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I've been following since August. I think a combination of CG Phat Santa, Jolly Holly and some lovely swirls of Party Hearty would make a lovely Christmas pendant!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I was a follower since june/july? and I dont know why I unfollowed you. so Im again a new follower ;)

    I will put OPI Sanguine with some blacks :>

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm a newer follower, but a reader for over a month now.

    :) I would combine SH hidden treasure, OPI Ogre the Top Blue & black. :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've been following via GFC for about half a year now.

    My jewelerry usually isn't all blingy and "in your face", so i'd use more subtle colours of shimmers. I'd say swirls and abstract patterns, and made with polishes like orly space cadet, combined borghese stellare notte. Lots of duochrome and shimmer, but still subtle and not too many colours :)

  13. Hi!
    I've been following The Daily Nail for 64 days on blogspot.

    Good luck everyone! And thank you for this lovely prize ^.^

  14. I'm a follower, and I've been following for about 5 months.

    I would pick any lime green and an aqua color, those are my favorites :D If I could I'd add some silver glitter as well ^^

    ReplyDelete
  15. I just started following a few days ago, but I've been coming here to see your posts before that.

    I can't really choose what combination of colors I would have, but I would definitely have a red like Ruby Pumps in it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have been following you since may.

    If I could freely choose a color, I would not use more colors than one, but that color is my biggest wish to get, and I hope one day I will get it, and would love a pendant with it. And the color is: Essie Starry Starry Night...

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've been a follower since this summer and I found your blog by googeling for new inspirational nail blogs :)
    If I could combine any polishes in the world to make a pendant I would definitely go for metallic polishes, since I love those. I would choose one greyish, one black and probably one gold. Pretty basic metallics, but I'm sure it'd look awesome! I'm not too good with the brands and brand names though, sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I follow The Daily Nail on blogspot! I've been following for a couple months.

    If I could combine ANY colors of nail polish to make a pendant, I think I would like to see Ulta alter ego, Maybelline Candy Coated and Orly Virdian Vinyl!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oooh been eyeing those for a while now, will wait see if I win first before I place an order 1 ;P
    I have been a follower for a while... I don't usually comment, just go oooh and aaahhh looking at the photos !

  20. Hi!
    I follow you since december 2009.

  22. I've been following for over a month. I went through your archives immediately when I found your blog. I would choose some sort of dark and bright shimmer reds.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've been reading for 6 months or more and following for a few weeks. If I could make any pendant, I would use Starry Starry Night, because I love the look of the night sky. Then I would add in a few shimmery colors-maybe NfuOh? to look like space or the northern lights!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've been following for nine months on GFC. I'd love to see China Glaze DV8, China Glaze OMG, China Glaze Black Diamond plus American Apparel Hassid, and perhaps some ManGlaze Hot Mess :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've been following since almost the beginning on GFC!
    I'd love to see a combination of the Burlesque collection in a pendant :)
    -Susan

    ReplyDelete
  26. I started following you 3 months ago in GFC, that's when I also started my own nail blog. I wanted to follow a blog that has a different approach with nail polishes not just like an ordinary nail blog.

    For the nail polish combination, I have no exact nail polish name in my head right now, is that okay? But I want a pendant with a fusion of purple and green polish, because I love purple and my boyfriend's favorite color is green :) I want to wear our favorite colors, near my heart :)

    And it's amazing that yesterday I just featured Ginger Kitty Designs in my blog! ^_^

  28. I follow you since June.
    I love all the purples, so I would choose a few shades of this colour ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've been following since April.
    I think I'd do something with some Nfu Oh flakies or maybe just a simple one with Ruby Pumps or Emerald Sparkle. =)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've been following since January.
    I would want a pendent with some silver, gold, purple, sky blue, and iridescent glitter!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've been following officially for a week now but reading for nearly a year.

    I would combine flakies with Essie Starry Starry Night, Essence All Access and Orly Space Cadet :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've been following your blog since you were featured on MSN's homepage a long time ago.
    I love all your designs, though I pity your poor nails =(

    I would combine Nfu-oh #56, Essie Starry, Starry Night , Nfu-oh #56 , China Glaze polish Atlantis, China Glaze: Ruby Pumps and China Glaze "Octa Gone Wild".

    I have a question though, I live in Asia, would you be able to ship it here if I actually get chosen? =P

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've followed the Daily Nail for a couple of weeks now through Google Friend Connect. I'd probably use a dark forest green, a lilac purple (or Estee lauder's Surreal violet ooh so pretty) and a shimmery grey. I think that would be spectacular!

    ReplyDelete
  34. ive been following since around november 2009 when it showed up in geekologie with the bacon nails. if i could make the pendant out of any color nail polishes, i would use opi oger the top blue, opi gargantuan green, and orly tiara.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've been following for some months by google reader but I'm a quite new follower (I think some weeks) via gfc.

    As about jewel color combination... well, I had been drooling over essence "meet you in Budapest" (secrets of the past collection), which actually never arrived to Italy..so I would combine that particular shade of teal (my fav colour *.*) with light brown and gold.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I follow through GFC as Gwen Wijman. I'm visiting your blog for around 1/2 year.
    I'd use Orly space cadet and Black. I don't know what else polish is nice with space cadet!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've been reading every day since a few months in, after I saw the bacon nails on geekology, but technically following for a few days now.

    I'd probably use a base of black, and swirl in glittery pink and glittery gold to make a sort of starburst pattern.

    (My toddler absolutely loved the duck nails from awhile ago, and after several days of asking to see the ducks, we had to print out a picture and tack it to the wall so he could show me the ducks every day) :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. i'm a follower for the last 6 months and my combo is simple but beautiful, essie starry starry night with some touches of china glaze fairy dust and golden enchantment

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've been an avid reader of The Daily Nail almost from the beginning. If I could choose any colors to make a pendant, I would select several pastel-y glow in the dark colors so the pendant would magically glow at night :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I've been following since your nail art contest (most recent one)

    I'd do something with OPI DS shades- the holographics, unless the effect doesn't show up with glass over it...

    Honestly though, I'd do OPI blue moon lagoon, Nubar relclaim, opi mpj holo/cc revvvolution/glitter gal black (any of them for black) perhaps a bit of sally hansen's red holo as well- the golden tourmaline... yes. those would work well :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've been a follower since around April (when I started blogging). I don't have specific names or brands that I'd work with, but I can guarantee it would be a shimmery red, white and blue!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've been following about a year, I found you about a month into the original challenge... I think I'd swirl the new Illamasqua color, Viridian, and some kind of gold shimmer, perhaps . I'd love to see those as earrings!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh wow, that pendant is gorgeous!

    I've been following The Daily Nail via GFC and Twitter for months. I started following sometime around the beginning of this year.

    If I could choose any colors to create a pendant, I'd choose black, OPI DS Glamour, and Zoya Trixie!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've been reading your blog faithfully for 8 months, almost 9! It's gone by so fast.

    If I could choose any colors to make a pendant out of it would be...

    a dark blue, a bright purple and a dark green with a layer of shimmer/flakies.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've been a follower for 8 months now. I'd immortalize a Nfu Oh flakie

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've been following for about 3 months. If I could combine any nail polishes, I'd pick the Holos from the ChG OMG collection, like OMG, BFF, and L8R G8R!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've been following for a month or so now (Not sure how long :) ) I like blues and purples, so I'd combine OPI's Radiance with Suede. Maybe throw in a little silver, maybe the DS Radiance, so it would combine well with a chain for a pendant :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. LOL! Just noticed the "no link whoring" here at comment window.
    Been following since November 2009, BACON!
    I would probably choose to make a pendant using Miss Marion's Garnet (with clear polish over it to bring out the candy apple of it) and Orly Glitz and Glamour...sort of a glimmering poisoned apple.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I've been reading your blog for months and following for a while (and enjoying every single mani you have done!!!)

    I would choose to make a pendant from Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm. I got stuck in 3 days of boring training so I painted my nails with Chainmail Charm and admired them everytime I got bored, so a pendant would keep me occupied!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've been a follower since before you had the idea, and I'd use a nice matte black polish to make a set of fake hobbit feet. Do I win?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Following one or two weeks :)
    Probably OPI yo-ga to get this blue with sh hidden treasure!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hi :)
    I'm a follower for a few month via GFC.

    I would use "jewel" from Nubar + "pardoxal" from Chanel + a matte black.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I've been officially following for a few weeks, but have really been following for a lot longer.

    I would use hot colors, like red and yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm not eligible, because I don't have any of the eligible accounts to be veriried, but I had to comment.
    I've been following the blog from the 2nd week or so and love it.

    And that pendant is beautiful. I wonder how the nail polish jewelry holds up to time. You know how some plastics discolor or fade. I wonder if it does.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I´m a follower thru GFC and I´ve been since I started my blogin August but I think I have followed you from February. Love your manicures!
    If I should make a pendant I would use some of NfuOhs holographic nail polish, some pink polish, glitters of course and a frosty white!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I've been following the Daily Nail for about 2-3 months now. (:

    I'm not sure all of the colors I would use, but I know I would definitely use Essie's Lilacism. That is such a gorgeous lilac! I also really like OPI's Do You Lilac It. (And the name is too cute.) :D I'm kinda in love with lilacs at the moment.... xD

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi! I have been following your super awesome blog ever since the Today Show!
    Well, my pendant has to be glittery and awesome and has to combine my two favorite colors (these were even my wedding colors) so I think I would go with swirling OPI's Catch Me in Your Net (a glittery blueish green that looks like it should be worn by Barbie on her way to a disco party) and OPI's Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous (a great sparkly silver) together to make perfection!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've been fallowing the Daily Nail since September.
    I'd put together black and navy blue, because those are my favorite colors and match with almost everything!

    ReplyDelete
  59. hi im a new follower! my friend crunkstal who is also a follower told me about you and your awesome ! the colors i would choose is 31 virtual violet sally hansen , carribean frost wild shine andenvy1555 love my nails.i think those colors would look awesome together because they blend well thanks for taking the time to read this!!

  60. I've been a blog follower for a little over 2 mos, I also follow on Twitter.

    If I could make a pendant right now, I'd want it to be OPI Unripened & OPI Catch Me in Your Net - love love those colors!
    I'd also love a ring with OPIs Damone Roberts 1968 & Alpine Snow!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hi i have been following for about a week now, but i have been veiwing this website for a couple of months.
    If i could use any colors it would have to be a deep purple, a fairy mist white, and a light watermelon green with sparkles. these colors would make me most happy:)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hi! I've been a follower X a few months.
    If I could make a pendant, I'd try a mix of burgandy, with deep blues and purples and see what happened.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have been a follower for two weeks now. I think I would swirl together Eyeko's Rain and Petite with a little bit of China Glaze's Midnight kiss...would be awesome! baby blue, light pink and a swirl of glittery white.

    ReplyDelete
  64. hi! i've been a follower for about 2 & 1/2 weeks. love your nail art btw! if i would use opi's my private jet, sinful colors rise and shine and china glaze's for audrey. :))

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm a follower and have been since the beginning of the year. That Pendent is beautiful. Gives me a Starry Night kind of vibe. Love it!

    If I could create my own piece I would use Orly's Goth swirled with Orly's Shine and maybe a touch of CG Fairy Dust for that added holographic sparkle.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I've been reading your blog since the bacon mani, but recently joined google friends. If I could franken any polish, I would try to make something similar to Essie's Starry Starry Night. I love blues and shimmer.

    ReplyDelete
  67. About three months, I think! I should really check....

    Hmm....So many to choose from! I think perhaps $OPI Mermaid to Order, with China Glaze Swing Baby swirled in....

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hey, hey, hey! I've been following on Twitter and Blogspot for quite a while now! :D If I could combine any nail polishes in a pendant, I would mix Ruby Pumps with...well..Ruby Pumps!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Wow, what a gorgeous pendent!! I've been following since about February, and your blog is always one of the ones I look most forward to seeing on my Reader!

    If I could make a pendent with anything.. well, it would have to have Clarins 230 (my ultimate lemming) in it, I think. Maybe something simple, like black, swirled with it to keep from overwhelming it? :) I also think Charla or her many dupes would make pretty jewelry.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I follow since 4 months.

    I dont have many effect/special finish polishes but I'm almost sure Nfu-oh flakies would look absolutely stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hey! This isnt for this particular post. I was actually curious where you get the Lush Lemony Flutter. Is there any place to get it at a discount? Thank so much! I LOVE your nails. :D

    ReplyDelete
  72. I've been following for a few months now and i love signing in every day to see a new post! There's so many nail polish combinations out there i wouldn't know where to start!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Heeeey! I started following no very long ago, but I watch this blog for about 2 months now...

    I'd mix China Glaze's rodeo fanatic and DV8, and some white

    Looved the idea of creating jewerly of nail polish!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I have been following you on blogspot and on twitter ever since I started off into this crazy nail obsession!

    I have had a lot of color ideas for jewelry from Tracey, actually. I was thinking a pendant made from the CG Tis The Season collection would be a fabulous piece of holiday jewelry. Perhaps Party Hearty and maybe one of the fabulous red and green shades? Something along those lines. Or something with Absolutely Alice in it!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I´ve been a follower for 6 months and loving it!!!!
    I would do a combination with the new pastel colors... blue, green and yellow... but, as I said, all pastel colors... I think it would look great!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I've been a follower for about 5 months, and if i could have a pendant made i would use a holographic or flakey black and a holographic or flakey white swirled together.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I've been coming to the site since Decemberish and an official follower since these giveaways started (to be honest).
    I love purple. So I would mix a combo of O.P.I.'s purples (DS extravagence, Royal Rajah Ruby, No Spain No Gain) which a sparkly silver to add contrast (DS radiance)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hey! I've been following since May.

    I would use a bunch of different teals to make mine. Probably Ski Teal We Drop, Yodel Me on My Cell, Suzi Says Feng Shui, Halley's Comet and Choose Me (OPI, OPI, OPI, Orly, Essence).

    Thanks,
    Melanie

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hi! I've been following for about 6-7 months. This pendant is gorgeous! If I could make my own, I would probably use Sally Hansen Xtreme's Cherry Red and White Out and Sally Hansens' 10-day Cotton Candy. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hello! I have been following this blog for about 3 months. :) I don't know the exact polishes, but I would probably use a combo of black, turquoise, some sort of shiny white, and green!

  82. I've been following since the yummy bacon nails. Mmm...bacon.

    If I could make a pendant of my own, I would probably do some black, hot pink, and silver (all sparkly) and try to throw in some zebra stripes. Totally hot, and totally a conversation piece.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I think I've been following since last December. I would love to see a pendant made with Clarins 230, aka the infamous Unicorn Pee. It wouldn't need to be combined with anything, cuz it's a rainbow all by itself. ☺ Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  84. i've been following your blog for about 5 months and i'm slightly obessed with all the crazy designs. i would love to see opi no room for the blues with orly gumdrop and then some sparkly nail polish. it would be cute light colors that are a little glitzy. aka PERFECT! :D

    ReplyDelete
  85. Hi! I've been reading your blog since June, but didn't click the "follow" button until a few weeks ago... :)

    I would love a pendant that combined *Green With Envy* from Rimmel London, with *Jumpin' Jade* and *Emerald Forrest* from Sally Hanson, a crazy metallic green set off my too gorgeous matte-esque colours :D.

    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'm a follower and I've been reading since sometime this spring. I think I'd like a pendant that layered Rimmel Black Satin, Sally Hansen Laser, and China Glaze Golden Enchantment.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I've been following for about a month and a half, and I have to say it's been an interesting time looking at all the designs. If I had my way, I would use pinks, and reds along with some pearl.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I have been following your site for a couple months now and loved getting to click each day and find out what you had done. If I was artistic and could make jewelry I would swirl purple, silver and black polishes

    ReplyDelete
  89. I've been a follower (of your nails) since you were in high school - and loved your creativity! - Not entering contest (Mom bites her nails) but want you to know how proud of you I am - Love you Liss!! Mom
