More Obama Love & The Frankenpolish Contest Winners

There is something seriously wrong with my email, sometimes it just eats up my correspondences. Consequently, I  missed a really great Obama mani. It’s okay though because Election day isn’t the only day we can show our support for our new President-elect.

Can you BELIEVE she did that free-hand! E. used OPI Birthday Babe for 9 nails then hand painted a Hope sign on her pinkie using acrylic paint, which is pure genius. She covered the art with Essie Carnival. Thank you for sending this in to me.

And finally, the Franken Polish contest: I’m not just saying this gratuitously, it really was difficult picking a winner because we had so many truly great entries. Every polish entered was a color that I would, personally, love to own. Ultimately Scrangie, Dami, and I chose individuals winners and then I tallied all our votes and these are the results.

The runner-up is Sminkan with her amazing entries “Updated Color Club Groove Thang” and “Divine Purple. Sminkan’s prize will be the Color Club Best of the Best Mini Set.

And drum roll please…

The winner is… Weedita! Entering a green was a nearly sure fire way to win this contest and Weedita did just that with her to-die-for creation “Green Tea Sparkle“. Weedita used 75% Color Club Naughtycal Navy, 20% Pure Ice Heartbreaker, and 5% Color Club Explosive. (For recipes to all the entries, please see the comments section of the “The Frankenpolish Contest” post.) Weedita’s prize will be the entire Color Club Glitter Vixen collection.

I want to thank everyone who participated, it was so much fun checking out all your entries.  : )

  6. Did pro-Obama manicures sway the 2008 election? « Darren Garnick’s Media Lab Says:
