Simply Rins Got Featured on MEGASTYLE.PH

Last May 2012, held a nail art contest and I joined. Participants were asked to create a nail design inspired by fashion. The inspiration should come from fashion trends that can be found by browsing through their website.

I submitted this an my entry:

Collared Nail Art Design

With this as my inspiration:

And guess what? I won!

Prizes include a gift certificate from Beauty and Butter nail salon and a guest column featuring a full tutorial of the winning nail design at I remember reading the contest mechanics that the feature would be published on the magazine. I might have read wrong.

I received the email notification of my winning last month and surprisingly, I was asked to create a different nail design. The idea was the same. To create a nail art based on fashion trends. But this time, I was asked to browse through designer collections that were included in the Philippine Fashion Week 2012.

Initially, I felt unenthusiastic to create another nail design. But it still remained an opportunity for me to reach out and inspire to aspiring or fellow nail art enthusiasts, so I created another nail art.

This is what I submitted for the guest column:

The feature that includes a full nail art tutorial (with photos) can now be read HERE.
