Celebrating One Year With A Nail Art Contest

Hi, everyone! My blog will be celebrating it's first birthday in exactly 8 days and I've decided to host a nail art contest as a way of thanking my followers! This would be Simply Rins' first contest and giveaway. The contest is open to everyone, regardless if you are a beginner on nail art. Rest assured that voting and judging will not only depend on skill but also on imagination and creativity.

Nail Art Red Butterflies 02The theme is quite simple -- Color It Red. To those who've been reading my blog for quite some time now, I'm sure you know that red is my favorite color. And so, I've decided that it is the perfect theme for this nail art contest. I know it is quite general but I really want to flood this contest with the color of love! You may use other colors but I want the nail art to be dominantly red. Surprise me! :)

Here are the rules:

From left: Konad's promotional stamping nail art kit, an emery board from Faceshop,
and a pink cosmetic bag from Etude House.

The Konad promotional stamping nail art kit includes a stamper, scraper, 1 image plate, and a white special polish. This would be great for those who'd like to try out nail art stamping. This would also be great for those who already owns a stamping kit because the stamper would be effective when working with small designs.

I'd like to thank my mother for sponsoring the the pink cosmetic bag from Etude House.

Finally, our lucky winner will also receive this:

A pair of Red Caddy flats (of YOUR size) from Posh Pocket Shoes! POSH (PO-cket SH-oes) are foldable, rollable, portable yet chic ballet flats that fit in your purse! Every Posh Pocket Shoes comes with a purse that transforms into a tote bag where you can place your heels whenever you change into your Poshies. This particular design is a classic ballet flats with an almond toe shape. Wear them with or without the chains! To know more about this amazing shoes, you may read Why I Love Posh Pocket Shoes.

Thank you to Posh Pocket Shoes for sponsoring this lovely pair for my first nail art contest.
