Announcing – Green Manicure/Nail Art/Makeup Contest – Lyme Disease and Mental Health Awareness Month

Hi Everyone!
I know, mid-afternoon is not my usual time to post, but I wanted to let you know all about the Green Mani/Nail Art/Makeup Contest!  Yes, that’s right, I’m including makeup this time since so many of my friends and followers blog about and love makeup.  I’m not going to tell what the prize(s) are at this time, this should be more about fun and raising awareness for Lyme Disease and Mental Health.  So if you want to have a little fun and help out, email me your pictures of your favorite green manicure, green nail art, or green makeup theme!

I will post the pictures in an album on my Face Book and also on my blog, you have until May 15th to get them in.  I am going to have a panel of 8-10 Professionals, Bloggers and my own 18 year old Daughter to choose the winner(s) by May 20, 2012.  That way you have the whole 2 weeks to get your entries in and it won’t end up being a popularity contest or who got theirs in the fastest.  I don’t have a vote!  One or two rules that I can think of for now, three entries per person, one for each category.  Manicure (no nail art or stamping), Nail Art (includes art, stamping, etc.) Makeup (includes whole face or eye).  But you can only win one prize.  Trying to keep this simple 🙂

***Please watermark your own photos if possible, if you are an individual, use your name or nickname.  If you don’t know how, I can do it for you., just let me know.

Thanks for your continued support!

  1. I just wanted to tell you that I think it is awesome that you are holding a contest for awarness that it is Mental Health month (as well as Lyme Disease) I have severe anxiety that severely limits what I can/cannot do on a daily basis as well as depression/OCD and agoraphobia. I can't go anywhere unless I am with my Husband and even then it is debilitating. I spend much of my time at home on blogs/ doing my nails and crafts to keep busy. I never share that much info normally with anyone I m not really close to but I wanted to let all of your readers and contest contributers know that Mental Health is still very misunderstood and awareness needs to be more public. So thanks for raising the awareness…you can come visit me at lifeaskandistar.blogspot.caSincerely Candace

  2. I have a question about the categories. For "manicures," is it just solid color only? If I do a gradient or something very, very simple, does that make the design fit in the "nail art" category? I have a couple of ideas in mind, and I'd like to submit them both. I figure I can do something quick and easy on my right hand and then try a nail art design on my left hand. I just want to make sure I don't violate the categories. Thanks! =)

  3. I've also got a question – can we submit something we've already posted about on a blog before, or does it need to be entirely new for this competition? Great idea!
