If you haven’t heard it’s Cultober, a month full of giveaways hosted by the illustrious brand, Cult Nails. You can read all about it on the Cult Nails Blog. I feel really honored to be one of the lucky bloggers to participate in all the fun. The wonderful Maria, founder of Cult Nails, has pretty much given me carte blanche with this giveaway so I’ve decided to do an Internet Meme Contest.
The prize is $50.00 worth of any Cult Nails goodies of YOUR CHOICE! In order to help you select, I will be posting swatches of some great Cult Nails polishes this month.
There are only two requirements. First, you must follow Cult Nails on Twitter. Second, you must submit an internet meme in the comments section of this post. Your comment must include your twitter user name. *Edit* Multiple entries are allowed.
The concept here is similar to the Haiku Contest - your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to create a nail polish related internet meme. You can use any medium, for example, you can create a Rage Comic, a someecard, an I Can Haz Cheezburger type photo with a caption, a fail image with a caption, a Mckayla is Not Impressed image, anything goes. Also, you can cover any nail polish related topic, you can poke fun at us bloggers, brands, colors, collector habits, i.e. hauling, hoarding, purging - whatever strikes your fancy. I will choose the winner based on creativity and hilarity. : D I know this contest is a little more involved than typical contests but the prize is worth it and I’m hoping everyone will have fun!
Here are a few someecards I made as examples (these are super simple to create on the someecard website):
(inspired by Jeanette of The Swatcholic, hahaha).
Submitting you entry: Your entry can be submitted by posting your creation in the comments section of this post. Since one of the requirements is following Cult Nails on twitter and because the winner will be announced on Twitter, you will have to include your Twitter handle in your comment for confirmation purposes. Feel free to tweet your entry to me as well, although it’s not required. Following me on twitter is also not a requirement, but I would love it if you did. : )
As an added incentive, Cult Nails is running a parallel Twitter contest in which you can win $100 worth of any Cult Nails goodies! You can read about it here. I will get to choose one of the winners – and Maria says I can even offer the soon to be OOS Cult Nails Awakening as a prize!

Although you get to choose which Cult Nails polishes or products you want as a part of your prize, your choice is subject to the availability of the polish or product. This prize is non-transferable.
