Skittlette Contest Entries!

Author: marta  //  Category: Uncategorized

Hello Lovely Ladies!

WOW! When I set you to do the Skittlette Contest I never imagined such an OVERWHELMINGLY warm and positive response from all of you super talented Ladies!!!  I received in excess of 40 valid entries from all over the world!!!  I sure am glad I’m not one of the judges (that task is left to the three key Ladies in my life: Karolina, Magda and Shannon).

I hope you all take a moment to admire all of the amazing entries, find some inspiration and maybe even a few new talented bloggers to follow.

A giant THANK YOU to everyone who dared to wear a Skittlette Manicure and took the time to enter this contest! ;) From the bottom of my heart- thank you!  I admire the color choices, the Holiday themed manicures and your kind words in your submission emails.

The not-so-computer savvy me, spent a few hours compiling collages of the entries.  I thought this would give you a good peek at the entries without the blog post being a MILE long ;)

(the entries are shown in the order in which they were submitted)

    Hi Marta, oh I am so happy for you, this is an awesome response :-)!! And I also absolutely would not want to be in the judges shoes, so to say ;-). I so intended to participate in this contest but my life is just totally crazy towards the end of the year that I simply had no time – oh well, next Time……

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      I agree… The response for this contest was INCREDIBLE! I did NOT expect so many talented entries and support. HONESTLY!

      There will be a next time… and I always say that nail painting/nail stuff should be a relaxing and fun endeavor (rather than a stressful one). I’m glad that you’re staying busy and LIVING LIFE ;)
      There will be more contest ;)

  • Elena1275

    I knew it! I have no chance))) Girls your manis is so amazing!!! Thank you Marta for this great contest! I have fun with it)) I like all mani, but 7, 19, 31 are my favorites

      Never say never. ;) I do not know who the Judges will choose, and they are not immersed in the blogging nail/art world so they will each pick according to THEIR personal likes :D

      The Judges are approaching the final verdict… there is some banter
      back and fourth ;) so close…. winners will be announced Sunday at the
      latest

      This was such a treat for me. I’m humbled

  • http://www.nailaday.blogspot.com/ Kripa K

    Marta, these entries are amazing! So many talented ladies. I really don’t envy the judges!!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      LOL… when I presented the judges with the entries they collectively gasped and realized that a big task was awaiting them (not sure if they, or me, anticiapted such a talented and big turnout :D)

    1 and 12 are for me, the best “skittled mani”, but hey, they ALL did a great job!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      I agree… every entry is unique and lovely in its own way.

      #1 has inspired me to wear the chevron manicure (I will post on that later next week). :D

  • Lillibit NAW

    My God! They are all great!! I´m so happy to participate :-)

    Amazing manis! Thank you for inviting us to participate! I say “us” because my sister, who is still very new to nail art took a huge leap (for her) and entered as well! I don’t want to be in the Judges seat right now! They have a hard job in front of them!!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Karen, I was so happy to see her entry. It was great to get entries from EVERYONE from all walks of life: new to nail polish, well established bloggers, new bloggers. This was truly an incredible experience for me and so many new ways to look at a skittlette :D

  • http://manglingmymanicure.blogspot.com/ Alexis

    Thank you again, Marta. I had such a good time creating my skittlette and I absolutely LOVE seeing all the other amazing manicures. I have found about 42 nail ideas to steal . . . i mean borrow. :)

    Oh they are all so gorgeous! Good luck girls! This will be a hard job for the jury. I was a bit scary doing a skittlette but I am glad I did. And yes I am very inspired by the others to give it a second try. ;-)

    Wow! What an incredible response! It just goes to show how much you inspire us with your skittlette creations. So many gorgeous manicures! Good luck to all the ladies!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Gosh, how sweet is your comment :D Thank you.
      You are all so open to trying new things and you have all outdone me, and taught me new ways to combine colors and techniques.
      The honor is all mine :D
      I hope to announce the winners on Sunday at the latest

  • http://glittericity.blogspot.com/ Amanda | Glittericity

    Aaah, I didn’t get time to enter! (OK, I just forgot the few times I did have a spare moment!) I couldn’t compete with those anyway–so many gorgeous manis!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      I know there will be another opportunity some time in the near future ;)

      Also, I really wanted to try a different voting system and pick judges that aren’t into the ‘nail blogging world’ as deep as I am… this sets an even playing field for everyone (bloggers and non-bloggers alike). :D
      Anyone could win :)

  • Julie Rivard

    Wow I could never choose a favourite, they’re all stunning!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Right! I’m glad I gave that job to my girls ;) LOL

        • lizajane1776

          I liked that she incorporated a variety of designs in similar styles in the same colors.

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      They were all incredible entries, this one by Emma is definitely a pretty one… a design/style I haven’t tried yet :D… but now I’m wanting to even more

  • http://twitter.com/SwatchAndLearn Mary

    How inspiring to see so many incredible designs from talented ladies! :) It’s surely going to be a tough decision to make to choose the winner!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Right!!!? I was so shocked that there was so much talent, spirit and love in this contest!

    Aww, shucks, it looks like you didn’t get my entry. :( Super bummed but I’m sure it would have just gotten lost in the shuffle against all of these amazing entries! Congrats on the contest being a great success! :)

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      I’m so sorry I missed your entry. I really don’t know how emails can get lost, but I’m sorry to hear that yous did.
      I would have appreciated it for sure.
      Thank you, I was floored and humbled by the positive response :D
      I hope you give it a whirl next time again ;)

  • PolishMad

    They are stunning! Stunning! So happy you got so many entries, yeeeeee :)
    Must say some of them are sooo good, they look like you made them. hehe…
    I was not able to enter, I was on holiday in Florida ( also made time for visiting Maria and John!!!), but I will make a skitlette and tag you just for fun in instagram soonish.
    I am also happy I do not need to judge or vote, they are sooo good. Well done ladies! :)

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      I will admit I was floored by the incredible response to this contest!
      LOL… definitely, these Ladies definitely outdid me ;)
      Awh, how fun to hear that you traveled to Florida and met with THE Maria and John! :D

      I hope you do try a skittlette and I’d love it if you tagged me.
      The Judges are almost done deliberating… :D
