OMG! So this morning I got  a phone call from a number I didn't recognize so I didn't answer it. I didn't think anything of it. A few minutes later I got an email from Sam Blum the promotions manager for Sally Hansen letting me know that I was chosen to be a finalist in the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Contest. I entered the color blocking month and last month for the street wear theme. My street wear theme won!

I entered not thinking that I could win. I am so glad I did. I have never been to NY so this is a huge opportunity for me. This is the nail Art that won me my spot.

I did this mani by using the Saran Wrap Technique with a brown and red polish. Then with a light grey and a thin nail art brush I added lines to create a brick wall. On the first 3 nails I painted the words "I heart nail art" in bubble lettering to look like graffiti along with some small splatters and stars. I outlined the words to make them pop out and highlighted with some white and black lines to give them a more bubbly effect. For the accent finger I used a dark blue and light blue and the SWT to create a jean look. On top of that I added dots of polish to look like paint splatter. On the pinkie I just did some thin rainbow drips because I couldn't think of anything else to do.
Colors I used:
Sally Hansen  Xtreme Wear "Black Out", "Wet Cement", "White Out", "Pacific Blue", "Blue me Away!", "Mellow Yellow", "Coral Reef", "Green with Envy", "Sun Kissed"
Sinful Colors "24/7
Finger Paints "It Baroque"
China Glaze "High Roller"
