    I come from Slovenia, Europe. I am currently finishing law school by preparing for an international law competition. Studying law is my passion and I enjoy every minute of it. I will hopefully be pursuing a career in Human Rights πŸ™‚ But this is my left side of the brain and I love relaxing by triggering the right one as well. That is where my passion for nail art started. Being able to put all the stress and all the pressure of everyday life into creating sth colorful on my nails (or others) is the best passion in the world!
    I love how the nail community on IG an blogs is always so nice, sweet and willing to share ideas. A big international family I am honored to be a part of!

    1. Aww I started nail art to feed the right side of my brain too and relax. I’m actually a IT geek lol I work as a Service manager in IT, so that’s the left side of the brain. Thanks for entering xx

      1. That’s awesome!I love to find another soul out there who tries to balance the logic side and the art side by doing nail art! πŸ™‚

  17. Hiya!
    My name is Lizzy and my Instagram user tag is @lizzzzythomas
    I am entering this give away because first and foremost, like any gal, I love glitter. Another reason being I would love to share these polishes with my mother. Although she’s an old hippie she never wore makeup or did her nails so growing up I taught myself. Now it’s time for me to teach her and repay her for everything else she has given me! And what 64 year old woman wouldn’t like to experiment with sparkles?!

  18. Hi, I’m Jules, I’m 22 from Australia, my Instagram is @justjlmanning and you’ll be able to see that I LOVE nails, in still a newbie but being a full time carer and student, it’s hard to be dedicated all the time, still do as much as I can though. I’ve followed your Instagram for ages and I’m a huge fan πŸ™‚ email is

  19. Hi Atima, my name is Priya (IG: @peeyud)
    Living in London, I’m 28 and an accountant (not a typical boring one tho) In my youth I used to bite my nails so much they never grew, but I still used to paint my nails with two colours.. Since joing Instagram and seeing the massive nail community, it inspired me to start painting my nails again (and do nail art rather than just flicks) anyway interesting things.. I’m a traveller and have started buying polish wherever I visit.. I recently skydived for charity and walked the Great Wall of china πŸ™‚
    Would love for oi to follow me but guess u get that all the time.. Great giveaway πŸ™‚

    1. Aww thanks very much hun, as odd as it may sound I do visit pages of my regular likers and commenters on my instagram page so I don’t always have to be following you to notice your page. Thanks for entering xxx

    A little about myself I am a 24 year old mother of one who has basically had to learn to be a mother by myself. I was 4 and a half months pregnant with my daughter when my mother, best friend, and role model past away. At only 19 years young it is very hard learning to be a mother without your own mother to go to. Just like nail art I learn something new everyday. I learn more ways to handle my daughter, learning patience, and overall gaining strength. This is what I have started doing with my nail art. Being a mother there is no “go to guide” to teach you right from wrong, when they are sick, for terrible two’s it’s something you learn as time goes on. I find that nail art is the same! You don’t just pick up a brush and become fabulous it takes patience and strength in knowing you will get better. Thank you for giving all of us a chance to win this amazing prize and thank you for listening to my story. R.I.P My Love this one is JUST for you

  21. I’m a master student who loves pole dancing, which is a sport people usually have the wrong idea about so I always have to explain myself. The past six months I’ve started to be more creative when I’m painting my nails but my small nail polish collection contains NO GLITTER! It’s a disaster, but this Essie Collection can really help me with that.

  23. Hi, my and Os Brenda my email is and my Instagram is @midnightprophecy8277. I love volunteering and helping people in my community, I even got a vision screening certification so I could help nurses screen children in schools in order to help prevent blindness due to undetected eye illnesses.

I love trying to do your designs but they never come out right hopefully I can get it right and finally put it up on Instagram for you to see.

  24. Hi
    My name’s Susan and I’m @glamsusie on Instagram. I self taught myself how to do nails and nailart by watching lots of YouTube vids and hours and hours of practicing on fake tips and my sister. Nailart is a hobby of mine and once I buy a new nailart stand I can spend hours on end locked up in my studio doing detailed art on 32 lollipop sticks.

  25. Hey, happy birthday!
    My name is Diana, my email is and my instagram account is @diannadobreva
    I’m only 15 years old but I have always been into the nail-polish thing because of my elder sister, who was constantly doing her nails in different colours and shapes back then. It all started with many experiments but now I try to follow all the steps of the tutorials I’m reading so that I don’t mess my nails. Practise makes perfect, right? (By the way, blue is my favourite colour) My family consists mostly of women so you can guess that we are all kinda crazy about nails and stuff. Anyway, other than nails, my main passion is music and singing – I take part in a lot of concerts and enjoy every minute on stage, being able to communicate with people in that way, expressing emotions…. and buying new nail polishes which match my outfits. πŸ˜€
    Glitter is my thing so I would be really thankful & happy if I win this giveway. Thank you! πŸ™‚

  26. Hey (:
    My name is Evelyn, I live in Texas.
    Currently 16 going on 17 in January (:

    Ive bought a couple of nail polishes only a few essies they are quite expensive but I love them(:
    Even if I dont win thanks for sharing your nail art with all of us. My instagram is @evelynnnn08

  27. Hi, I’m Ruth, a native Austrian who has followed her heart to England. β™₯ I am in a bit of a funk at the moment because I’m about to turn 31 on 23rd December and spend my birthday and Christmas in the UK due to loads of boring, self-pittying reasons but what really puts me in a funk is that it will be my first Christmas without my Oma (grandma). I miss her so very much these days it’s just not the same. So I try and keep myself busy polishing my nails and learning about others who polish theirs with a passion and about how sweet and supportive they are to each other. So you amongst others have made me smile today and for that I am grateful. β™₯β™₯β™₯ Ruth (@ruth_knall on IG)

  29. Hey! My name is Nicole, my Instagram name is nickholetrip. I’m a 21 year old college student in California who loves dogs, sports, and finding creative nail ideas to try out! I used to raise yellow Labradors to be Guide Dogs for the Blind. One of the puppies I trained is still a working Guide Dog in Texas which is pretty cool and makes me so proud. I also injured my knee 7 years ago (I’m actually missing part of it) and doctors still don’t know what exactly is wrong with it. Fortunately I’m getting surgery next year to try to figure it out! It would be awesome to have some new polishes to play with while I recover πŸ™‚ Thanks for having this give-away, Essie is my favorite brand of polishes! Keep up the amazing work on your blog & Instagram!

  30. Hi, I’m Roberta my instagram is nailed2perfection and my email is

    First happy belated birthday and congrats on the 50k mark!

    Well, as far as who I am, you asked for something creative and that’s pretty much all there is to it. I love doing just about anything creative. This of course includes doing my nails and hair, I’m also a singer/song writer, musician (I play multiple intruments), I make jewelry, paint and try to make just about any craft, I enjoy cooking as it brings my creative juices to the table as well lol. I’ve been in theater for over ten years and teach little kids how to act in an after school program. Ive written several plays and skits and I do all this out of fun and pure enjoyment (not tryin to be famous) We’re expecting our first child in march (a girl!) and my hubby desperate hopes she gets my creative genes lol

  32. Hi! My IG name is ASHLEY_HAKKER. Email address is ok so something about myself. Hmm well I’m 26 years old and I have 3 boys ages 5, 2, and 5 months. I feel that is the most important thing about myself because my life revolves around my boys. I started getting into nail art around April 2013. When I started I had NO IDEA what I was doing. I just enjoyed it. Then I started looking at nail accts on ig just to get ideas. Then next thing I knew I was following a bunch of women in the nail community on ig no idea it was a community like that. I’m so glad I have found all of you women on ig because I have learned so much from all of you and still learn so.much everyday. I thinks its awesome to see all of.these women that share the same passion come together and give each other encouragement and happy words everyday. I just love it. I’m so used to negativity from people that when I saw the kind words from these women it brightens up my day everyday. To know there are kind people in the world. And all around the world!! Ok so I feel like I’m just going on and on and on. But yeah I really love your work as well. You’re amazing! And happy belated birthday! πŸ™‚

  43. Hi! My name is Sara, @saraomega on Instagram. I’m new to the whole nail art scene but I fell in love after seeing all of the beautiful work done by you and others on Instagram. I also had a terrible habit of biting my nails and since starting my nail art journey earlier this year I haven’t bitten not once. πŸ™‚

  44. Lately, my favorite nail artist (that’s you, lovey :), jewelry designer, and tattoo artists are ALL UK based and I am obsessed with the way my friend from London says the word “butterfinger” (“buh-uh-fanga” <3). I may have to consider relocating! πŸ™‚ Also, I met my husband in circus school (splits and backbends class).

    Thanks for an aaaaaawesome blog/IG and have a great day! xo

  45. Hi my name is Katja, my name is weird and I can name lots of essie polishes just by seeing them. Not sure why or how and also have weird 4 am thoughts all hours of the day like: “It’s a good thing nobody has built a convenience store inside a volcano, because that doesn’t seem convenient at all” so yup that’s my funny story

  46. Hi my Name is Yomara, my email address is and my instagram is ynhk4……im a mother of two beautiful princesses and a blessing on its way ,iam a nail art beginner you and alot of nail ladies in this community in IG inspire me to love nail polish more and more everyday its just great to follow talented ladies as yourself πŸ™‚

  47. Hello, my name is Juliana and I love your nail designs! My Instagram name is azucar2544 and my email is I am not a very creative or “artsy” person (I’m an accountant), so I emulate what I see and some of your nail art has been a bit of an inspiration for me. I have never traveled outside of the US but this coming summer my husband is taking me to the World Cup in Brazil! I am excited and nervous at the same time.

  48. Hi! First of all, wishing you a very happy birthday! ^o^ also, congrats on reaching 50K followers on IG! the follows are well-deserved~ πŸ™‚

    Anyways, here’s my attempt~ haha!
    I’m an advertising slave (lol) in the morning, and a nail diva by night. XD why night you ask? It’s because I just discovered fairly recently my obsession with nail art. For me, nail art is special because it was the best way for me to relieve myself of stress from the usual stuff in life. Advertising can get REALLY stressful, so it’s like a perfect get away from it all once I set up all my stuff for nail art. πŸ™‚ I used to work on my college plates at night (I’m a Fine Arts student way back) and doing something creative like nail art sort of gives me the same high as back when I’m still in school (which I terribly miss. πŸ™ )

    I hope that gives you an insight about me and why I just loooove nail art just like you and the next person beside me in this comments thread. πŸ™‚ Wishing you all the best in your blog and your wonderful nail art “life!” :))

  49. Hi! My name is Sara, @Saraomega on Instagram. My email address is I started my nail art journey about midway through this year after having a long love/hate relationship with acrylics. I was using those as a way to get over my nail biting habit. Then I discovered the nail art community on instagram. I also realized how much better proper nail care & uber cute polish is to ward off nail biting. Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway!

    Hi I’m Sophie! When I was younger I wanted to be an astronaut and am now studying astrophysics at Cambridge so fingers crossed! The galaxy nail trend is what got me obsessed with nail art, and I now absolutely love giving myself mani/pedis and feel naked with bare nails! Can’t really afford to splash out on such beautiful polishes as a student so would absolutely love to win!! Thank you xxx

  51. @lauraleighb
    Right now I am watching Toy Story. I saw this movie in the theaters when it first came out. I’ve been hooked ever since. Even though I’m 30 and have no kids, I’m sitting here reciting the entire thing word for word. #sorrynotsorry #dontjudgeme

  52. Your nails are the best I have been following you on IG for AGES @davidoffnails is my IG, so recently I’ve won 2 concert tickets beyonce and Selena Gomez ❀️ So I feel kinda lucky! And I’m broke and dying for this collection to complete me!

  53. Well I think it’s so cool you’re doing this contest! I have a decent amount of Essie nail polish, but I hate buying it full price! Too pricey for me! I find them on Amazon or at TJ Maxx at lower prices, because Essies really do work well! I started painting my nails in hopes of stopping biting them, and it worked! I rarely bite them anymore, but they don’t grow very long:/ I’m kinda ok with that though lol;) My nails right now are the city skyline, it’s a blue/purple gradient with buildings on top. I think they’re so cool, although it wasn’t my idea! I started following you on Instagram because I thought it was cool that you have little twin babies and still have time to paint your nails lol! That must be tricky sometimes! But I love the designs you come up with, they’re always so creative, and your videos are always awesome! You should definitely make them more often:) Your accent is adorable! Anyways this is turning out WAAAYY longer than I intended but if I win could you please just contact me on ig? @amandagreene146 I can give you my email from there:) Thanks again, and happy birthday!!!!!:))))

  54. Hi Atima, congratulations on 50k! I’m Kristin (or @kgrdnr on Instagram), and I just recently got a manicure & pedicure certificate so I can start working on others as a nail technician. It’s pretty exciting, and hopefully I can find a job I love!

  56. Greetings from Texas! My name is Aimee Olivas. My email is and my Instagram name is @smarticlesaimee. My family has been struggling financially for a few months now and not having my dad around doesn’t help either. My dad passed away about four years ago and it does not get easier with every year that passes by. I’m a senior in college and I always do my best to make my dad proud in heaven. I am very close to my family and always try to help my mom in any way that I can. The reason why I started painting my nails more often was because I saw your nail pictures a while ago and hoped that one day I could be as good as you. Painting my nails helps me distract myself from the problems around me. My dream is to one day visit London mainly because of Doctor Who and Sherlock. Receiving a gift from you would be an honor but I thank you for taking the time to do this giveaway for all of the fans that know how talented you are. Happy holidays!

  58. Hello! πŸ™‚
    I find extremely sweet that you are giving away this beauties, great way to celebrate your birthday!
    My name is Cristina and I am from Costa RIca. I’m just four months to be a Pharmacist, and is that what made me enter in the nail polish/art world. Because of the university and work I was always stressed out, bored and even angry, ’cause I had time for nothing, Every time my friends asked me to go out I couldn’t because I was to busy and when I could go out no one else could, so it was really annoying for me. Then a random day I started to paint my nails ’cause I was bored studying, and my sorprise was that I sucked! Jaja!! I polished all the flesh around my nails and it looked bad! And I didn’t even know what was cleaning up, so I had a hot mess on my nails and I tought I was so cool with my nails (and flesh) all colored up! Now that I think about it is so sad and fun at the same time, jaja.
    Now I’ve learnt a lot about keeping my nails pretty and healthy. I’ve been following you for a while ago and I love you nail art, but I really admire how you balance your time between a full-time work, your two babies and keeping your nails rocking!

    Well, no more talky-talk! I don’t want to get you bored!!

    Feliz CumpleaΓ±os Atima!! (Happy Birthday Atima :* )

  59. Oh, the whole part about myself I left off my first post. I work as a RN at a children’s crisis shelter in Tucson Arizona. It’s the best job a girl would hope for. Kids love their nails painted. I could spend all day painting and repainting nails; it’s such a bonding time. Earlier this year I brought in a few polishes to paint the nails of our 4 and 5 year old kids. One little boy wanted his nails painted sky blue but before agreeing he turned around and asked a little girl in the group…… if I do this will you still be my friend? She said yes. Oh, he got them painted. Just a little story from work. So cute, the day to day stories I see. Dawn

  60. Well, hi! My name is Nika, I live in Moscow, Russia. My country is bug, beautiful and I love it! My obsessions are nailart and horses. Well, maybe that is all I can say. Not a superhero but I’m happy that you will read it!

  61. Hi my name is Ellinor! I’m a 16 year old girl from Sweden (yes, i got premission from my mom).
    I’ve always wanted to have long, strong and beautiful nails but since I was little I have always been biting on my nails. You may know that those kind of nails are not beautiful, strong or long.
    I decided to stop biting them because I really wanted long and beutiful nails. It was hard but a thing that helped me a lot were your Instagram. I searched for nail accounts to get inspired and I found yours. Today I’ve got longer nails than ever and I’m super proud. I’d like to thank you for that, and Essie. I bought a nail strengther from Essie that really worked! Thank you!

  62. Hey, I’m Jennifer-maree I have a severe obsession with nail polish and nail art. I love all kinds of art but wish I had more time to spend being creative. I am a tomboy and love to express myself with my nails. =) @jennifer_maree. Lots of Love from New Zealand =)

  63. Hi there, I’m Merrel and I’ve been practicing nailart since 2010. I love polishes, but I was never able to buy Essie because it’s way too expensive here for me. Now I’ve also been looking for holographic and metal polishes. It would be awesome if I won, so I can have both in one go πŸ™‚ thanks a lot for reading

  64. Hey (:
    i am Michelle and i’ll become a hairdresser. I am so in love with your instagram, mine is michellejordanow. I come from Germany and we don’t have essie here in my town, so I am so excited about this contest!

  65. Hi! I’m Nayia my email is and my instagram is xrisompouklitsa.
    I’m 25 and I live in Greece, my biggest love is painting but I actually love anything creative like baking and doing my nails!! I can’t go a day without my nails polished!!! I have a five year old niece in the US and we love talking about our nailpolishes, especially pink polishes!! I also have an african grey parrot and two dogs and sometimes I think about painting their nails too…I know, it’s crazy!!! But that’s how much I LOVE nail polish!!! I just want everyone’s nails looking pretty… πŸ˜€

  66. Hello, my name is Saba and I am a 15 year old bangladeshi girl. I have been obsessed with nail art since I turned 13. At first I started off with growing my nails and began doing nail art on my own hands until I got tired of doing it on my hand. Then I wanted to take a step forward and started painting everyone’s nails around me. I used to love it when they complimented my skills. And then I found you on instagram, i was so inspired to see your nail arts that I used to sit all day trying to do exactly what you did. Thank you so much for inspiring me.And yes you have BEAUTIFUL nails β™₯. The reason I would want this Essie Nail Polish set is because there isn’t Essie nail polish anywere around Bangladesh or atleast I haven’t seen any. And it would be wonderful if I won this set so that I could impress more people with my work. And I did take my parents permission. πŸ˜€

  67. Hi my name is Becky, and I am a mother of two. My daughter who is 13 is an art student (as I was back in the day), she totally hates my nail art addiction. She gets so mad when her friends come over and want to paint their nails with all my goodies. While my 9 y/o son, is my wing man when it comes to colors and designs. He is great for picking out what colors to paint my nails and he loves looking at IG for new ideas for me to try and finding inspiration for me to make my own designs. I have always loved polish and wore just a basic single cream color until recently. Over the past couple of months I have evolved from having just a handful of polishes to over 100. I am partially covered in tattoos and love showing off my colorful nails as well. Doing my nails is one more way I can express myself through my body art πŸ™‚ Happy belated Birthday! Thank you for all your hard work, time and dedication you put into your blog, all us nail addicts really appreciate it!! and thanks for the giveaway

  69. My name is Saige Hoop, I am Homeschooled, love Michael Jackson, Dance and Nail Art.

    I found Nemo on Google plus, when I saw her photos I was always amazed with how simple her designs looked, yet how complexed they really were, she had inspired me to do great with my nail art. I have been doing nail art for about 2 years now and have been able to make alot of money at my dance studio in Orem, Utah. I am a Ballroom dancer and I dance with Legacy Dance and on the BYU college youth team. Being 17 I hope to get a scholarship through dance. Other than dance, Nail art is my favorite Hobbie, and through the two years of nail art, I have never won a giveaway. πŸ™‚ fingers crossed!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚

  78. Hey Atima,
    My Name is Mona and I’m 16 Years old. At first I apologize for my bad English πŸ™ I hope you understand me anyway. I’m a girly student from Germany and so I live there. I found a very nice picture of your Nails on Instagram and so I found your Blog. And ! OH MY GOD ! your Nails ! WOW ! I can’t describe how beautiful there are. When I read your personal description I think : oh, like my mum .. Yes, I’m still young, but I have a little brother and two little sisters and I loved there all ! Sometimes there are annoying but that’s normal l, right ? We are an strong family, only with mum but we stick together – all time. My little sisters are two and twelve years old. My brother are seven years old. Oh yes .. Sometimes its not easy to be the oldest child and the big sister ! I saw an picture of you and your two little girls – so cute ! When I think about that .. I feel so good because I see that picture and I know they are so much love and happiness all over the world. I could see it in her eyes and your funny face ;D -beautiful back to me ! I go to school and visit the first year of my “graduation from high school” in Germany they call “Abitur” and you can make it after the last school year. I like to go to school .. Yes ! Really .. ! πŸ˜€ in my future plans I imagine to work as a doctor or a dentist. After school I meet friends or visit all drugstores in our city. Then I stand a long long time in front of the Nailpolish shelf. Oh yes, I love it ! I have a Blog too. But I’m not so famous .. Of them I have lots of pictures of my painted nails and first designs or maybe hauls and so on .. At the last months I had not enough time, so I posted nothing πŸ™ On my room at home I have a big shelf with lots of polish and I love then ! Oh yes ! We girls in our family are an real “gang” and I must ever paint all there nails πŸ˜€ so lots of girlfriends come to my to paint there nails .. Its also my job ! I had never enough money to buy new colors .. So I had an mini-job after school .. So I can buy cloths,makeup, nailpolish and so on .. But at the end its ever not enough money for expensive or “better-quality” nail polish.. πŸ™ so I really don’t have essie nail polish .. Oh yes its true ! I looked at all the beautiful colors but .. I have not enough money .. To win your giveaway is also a big dream .. I don’t now my person are so interesting πŸ™ but I hope I could show you my person .. ! You see my nailpolish-love begins very early .. About withe the age of 14 or 15 .. And with the age of 16 I beginn starting painting my nails more exactly and specially and I make difficult designs .. My favorite colors have lots of glitter or specially shimmer or other effects. So I love sugar crush nail polish or a matt finish .. Ahhhh .. Oh god, I could talk about that all time of day πŸ˜€

    I send you love greetings and big kisses, in love, MONA

    I’m Gianna, I’m 22 and a graduate student. I used to use art as a form of therapy and would paint these huge, intricate butterflies on my walls and for murals and for others. As things got harder financially I couldn’t afford to get my nails done anymore and time wouldn’t allow me to paint much. So I started doing my own nails with cheap stripers and the possibilities seemed endless. That was a year ago, in March I started attempting character nail art and now my “before and after” pictures show a pretty amazing transformation! I recently started using acrylic paints for my designs and I feel like I can do anything, and what’s really amazing is that I’m excited about something again. Between full time grad school and work it can seem like there’s not enough time for me; nail art has been an unfailing outlet that makes me feel great and allows for a brief escape of all the work at hand.

  83. Hi

I started doing nail art this summer as a way to shut my mind off at night because I was planning a wedding (got married October 5th), just moved positions at school and moved again for this year, and I am a full time Ph.D. student. Needless to say, I had a lot on my mind. Your awesome pics of your nails inspires me to stop, concentrate, and create something beautiful, and for for that, I am grateful!

I hope to someday be as good at you at this and I would love to own some of my own Essie nail polishes to help me achieve this! Xxx

    Im 20 years old and i have a 1 year old daughter. shes so spunky and such a diva. When i was in grade school i was so shy, i didnt make many friends. I loved painting my nails since i was little. I would do different designs and the girls at school would compliment them and ask how i did them. It brouhht me out of my shell. And now even with a daughter i always find time to do the thing i love and thats painting my nails!

  99. Hi I’m Brooke!! I’m obsessed in painting my nails! My friends always ask me to do them! I am 12 and I have a twin brother! What is really cool is that my dad is deaf and I know sign language! Well anyway, I love making designs to my nails all the time but I really love sparkles! My mom says the glitter does come out like it looks.. I really don’t have a big collection and itwould be amazing to win this! Maybe i could prove to my mom that it looks great!!!Thank you!

  100. Hi Atima πŸ™‚

    You probably don’t remember me, but I remember you ! My ig account is @nail_newbee.

    I’m actually a quite private person. I wasn’t when I was younger, but I grew up, and learned the hard way that sometimes it’s best to keep you personal stuff for yourself… Well this wasn’t supposed to be something sad ! πŸ˜€
    Just an explanation of why I’m not going to tell my life story πŸ˜‰ – and then of course because of the space.. πŸ˜‰

    Though I want to share a little something with you that nailpolish and nailart did for me and my little world ! πŸ™‚

    I seem like a very secure woman with confidence and control over my life. But the truth is that I’m just as insecure and clumsy as anybody else… πŸ˜‰ After a hard time in life I stared polishing my nails, became a part of the ig nail community and then I actually won your beginner bling bling nailart contest ! πŸ™‚ I’m not a beginner anymore but what nailart did for me at that dark time, was giving me confidence in myself again, giving me hope and joy πŸ™‚

    So nailart got stuck with me πŸ˜‰
    Joy in a tiny little bottle β™‘

    What more can you possibly ask for in a nailpolish? πŸ˜‰

    One of my favourite brads is essie. And of course Denmark is such a small country so that the newest collection we have is the old essie lux effects.. sigh πŸ˜‰

    Love and best wishes

    1. Oh Loucie of course I remember you. Ahh you story really sticks with me as its the exact reason I took up nail art. After having had an operation to correct my hearing problems I suffered from facial palsy due to my facial nerve being damaged. For almost a yr I couldn’t smile, then I got pregnant found out I was having twins was very sick during the pregnancy. So my confidence was very low and nail art really helped a lot. Thanks for sharing your story.

  101. My email address and Instagram @vannybabes89 what can I tell you about myself my name is Vanessa I live in canada (Montreal).

  104. Hey there Birthday girl! First of all best wishes and congrats on your 50k followers!
    So, my name is Paula and I’m 17. When I was little a had a huuuggeee nail biting problem and nail art saved me! (my nails are still a bit weak because of that bad habit though :/ ). I’m pretty sure I was one of the first of my girlfriends trying out nail art, and beautiful nail polishes are what inspire me the most and boost that small amount of creativity I have that only comes out when I’m working on my nails. Anyways, sadly it’s been a while since I updated my (not too small) nail polish collection due to excessive exams and college applications, so it would be wonderful to win these gorgeous essie polishes and get back in the mood for beautiful nail art.
    I hope I have a chance! And thanks for all your amazing posts and the inspiration you give all of us nail polish junkies, keep it up (:

    I’m not sure if this counts as ‘interesting’ but I’ll give it a go anyway.
    Every time I have to go to hospital for operations (I’ve had quite a few) I don’t pack books or anything like that, I pack nail varnish, cause when I’m stuck in a hospital bed I don’t want to read or knit or anything, I paint my nails to make me feel better, most of the women on the ward think it’s weird, but quite a few have wanted theirs doing too πŸ™‚ it’s nice to be able to share the joy in a place like that. I’ve never won a giveaway in my life, hopefully I have a chance with this one. I love your nail art, you inspire me every time I see your posts πŸ™‚

  106. Hello, my name is Allison! My email is and my instagram is allisonmurphyyo. Nail art is one of my passions. I have a split family and my dad and my stepmom recently split up. Both my mother and my father make me feel like an inconvenience but my (ex)stepmom never did. Having her leave is so stressful and doing nail art give me something to focus on. It takes all my stress away. I spend hours upon hours on my nail art, although I’m not that great. I’m only young and don’t have a job so getting nail polish and nail art tools doesn’t happen. I would love to win this giveaway so I can continue to grow as a painter (I don’t know what else to call it lol) and hopefully become as successful as you :*

  107. My Instagram name is @hottmama_of4
    I am a mother to 4 AMAZING children who I love more then anything in this world! I teach them that you can do ANYTHING if you put your mind to it. My youngest will be 3 next month and when I had just had her I signed up to audition for “The Voice” (USA) and I couldn’t go because I had postpartum depression but that isn’t going to stop me! I will audition again once the nodules heal on my vocal chords. I was born to sing!

    1. That’s amazing Hun. I know all about post partum depression. I suffered after having my twins too. I love singing too so we have that in common. All the best for when you audition, I’m sure you will be great. Thanks for sharing xx

  108. Hi! I’ve been doing nail art for the past year or so and I really love doing it! I find it a nice relaxing hobby to do on my days off! I can’t wear nail varnish in work though because I’m a nurse haha! I’ve actually been told I should start doing nails full time as a new career by some friends and fans! I’d loveee to get this set as I don’t have many glitter polishes as the good ones tend to be too expensive for me!
    Thank youu!

  110. A little about me, I grew up on a farm where I learned how to operate heavy machinery by the time I was 10. Where I live we have some of the coldest winters where it is often negative degrees Fahrenheit, but if you can make it through the winter the summers are amazing. I have a toy maltese who is a rescue and the most precious little dog ever. I have a job where I can’t have my nails painted so every weekend I have them painted for about 3 days then have to remove it and it’s so sad lol. P. S. I love your designs!

    1. Lol snap I did business comm systems which is an IT course and now work as an IT Service manager. I remember what it was like to be the only girl in my class lol thanks for sharing and thanks for entering xx

  116. Yay for such a thoughtful giveaway! I’m Annabel of @followthatway on Instagram and I’m 20 this year with a truckload of passion for glitter gradients and roses. During my free time I love to watch DIY videos and I like to recycle Ferrero Roche boxes! I’m also a really avid reader and now I’m trying to conquer the classics (not an easy feat!). Funnily enough, most of my friends don’t see me as a reader nor someone who loves to read (and even do nails) hahaha but I guess appearances can be deceptive and I think this comment is wayyyyy longer than I’ve expected but I hope you have fun reading this Atima hahaha and once again, thank you for the lovely giveaway! πŸ™‚

    1. Lol good luck with reading the classics. I used to read so much more than I do now. You know I love your nails right lol thanks for always being so great and lovely and thanks for entering xx

  117. Hola, I’m Destiny and I was born on Valentines day (I’ll be 18 next year), and I’m a senior in high school. I was raised in Wisconsin, and well something grabbing about me is that I’m a JUNK FOOD JUNKIE. Like I just can’t get enough of candy, and all other types of junk food. I have a HUGE sweet tooth. If I could eat junk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner I would (but I know it’s not healthy). Lol, another interesting thing about me is that I love to swim. The way I learned how to was back in middle school, and I went to this party with my friends. They all dared me to dive in the deep in, but of course I was to scared too. But, when I didn’t want to do it they pushed me in, & I fought & struggled until I started doing laps back and forth in the pool (lol, some friends). Freshman year I shaved all my hair off! I mean I went completely bald. Why? Because I was so sick of my hair, and just wanted something a little different. It’s all grown back now, but I kind of miss the baldness. Another thing about me if I love nail polish! Its like my getaway or stress reliever. I love trying out new things, using different techniques and styles. Polish is like make-up but too my nails. πŸ™‚

  120. Hello, I am Gaynel!
    I was born and raised in Jamaica, but presently live in the States, with my husband. It has been my desire since age 4 to serve others through medicine and so this summer I sat the MCAT, the medical entrance exam for the US. A lot has happened, I’m out of school, waiting on med, and have loads of time on hand (can’t work); since joining IG as @nave_g I have had an outlet for creativity and happiness. Following you on IG, seeing your designs and trying to figure them out and recreate them make me happy. You in spire me to see beauty and not to let my craving to create die. Because of you and other IGers like @chalkboardnails though still a newbie I was able to design my worship pastor’ snails for her wedding. P.S. I think I may now be nail polish junkie lol. My email address is Thank you very much for doing this πŸ™‚

  121. After you had this giveaway, I went a bought ‘Belugaria’ and ‘Hors d’euvres’ for myself but I have found that they chip so easily my manicures never last more than a day or two. Have you any tips to help prevent the glitter from chipping so easily? I love your nail art, thank you Atima.
