Performance Arts - Nail Art Contest

Fri May 3, 2013, 9:31 AM
Update: Just a few days left to enter the contest, there's still time! And please don't forget to check out the amazing entries we already got :)

Yes, a contest! Remember I wrote yesterday about how amazing and fun nail art is? It's your time to try it, and to encourage you we're putting together a contest! Complete with pretty prizes and everything. Tell your friends!

Get your polish ready and try it! And guys, we're not forgetting about you :lol: I think there's nothing wrong with a guy painting his nails, but if you're not comfortable with the idea ask your girlfriend to let you do her manicure and she'll be thrilled! (I speak from experience). Or well, there's always falsies :)

Rules

  • Entries must be made, photographed and submitted between May 3rd and 31st.
  • The nail art can be performed on your own nails, someone else's nails or false nails, but it must be made by the submitting artist.
  • There's no restriction on theme, materials or technique, as long as they comply with deviantART's submission policies. Whatever your inspiration tells you to do on a nail is valid.
  • You must mention on the comment section that your entry was made for this contest.
  • Your work must be submitted to the Traditional Art / Body Art / Cosmetic Application / Nail Art gallery and to the contest folder. You have to be a member of ArtHistoryProject to submit.
  • Unlimited entries, but you can only win once.



Deadline


The deadline for this project is May 31st, winners will be announced a few days after.

Prizes


First place
6 months subscription and 1000 points.

Second place
3 months subscription and 500 points.

Third place
1 month subscription and 300 points.

Prizes are courtesy of the communityrelations team and Moonbeam13.

Entries

Tutorials

If I can squeeze a few more in, I will post some more. xD

I do crazy nail art all the time, so it was a matter of just gathering my materials, finishing and photographing. Photographing is longer/harder than making the nails. OnO"

That would be great, I love having lots of entries and nail art is one of the few arts that can be made almost daily :lol:

I hate photographing nails T_T I never get it right, too much glare.
Reply

CiiMoore Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Student General Artist
It's either the glare...or not the greatest lighting. It's been dull the past two days. :I My lenses are touchy in low light, and I am not used to adjusting ISO settings yet. I barely got my DSLR in FEB, lots to learn still!

Omg When I use sparkly colors...that's the hardest to photograph! I am so surprised my red nails (contest Entry 4) came out so well.
