The 13 Days of Nails Halloween Contest is going to be SPOOKTACULAR!
1st place Beginner Winner, 1st place Intermediate Winner, and 1st place Advanced Winner:
Nail Gift Bag (USA, not Alaska or Hawaii)
Online Gift Card (Hawaii, Alaska and other countries)
(as to what is in each bag, that is to be determined according to contestant interest and participation)
Each contestant will determine which level in which they want to compete. This is their choice since they will be able to determine best which level they are. I will show a manicure that will best match up with the level in which they choose to compete. You can only enter in one level (beginner, intermediate or advanced) and you may enter as many as 13 images for the contest!
Send your photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm ET on 10/31/13.
Here is the first MANI of the contest that I will post for an idea and directions with it. Who doesn't love CANDY CORN? This is a beginner's level mani.

Thin paintbrush (or white nail pen)
1. After applying a base coat, paint the entire nail orange. Let dry.
2. Paint yellow straight across the bottom of the nail.
Tip: To get a straight line without tape, start your brush on the outside of your nail and roll your finger outwards while keeping the brush straight.
3. Using a nail pen or paintbrush, paint white at the tip of your nail. Let dry, then cover with a clear coat. Voila!
(You can get the white nail pen at most any drug store or online, my online idea would be: http://search.ulta.com/search?p=Q&lbc=ulta&uid=359921554&w=white%20nail%20pen&method=and&view=grid&isort=price)
You can buy it wherever you want, this was one of many online spots I found. I bought the whole French Nail kit and the white nail pen came with that. As you can see, it's worth it to get the whole kit and not just the white pen. http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=2239843&productId=xlsImpprod4160059&navAction=push&navCount=1&categoryId=cat80068
(I don't make any money on this entire blog at the moment or any of the links that I post.)
Also... you do not have to do this mani or enter the one you do like this into the contest. These are mani's that are being provided here to give you some help for creation of yours!
