  1. Hi im 24 as a kid ive been using my money saved up from babysitting to pay for my siblings needs as we werent well off.i put my dreams in hold. Now that im married ive gone to college and managed to qualify in nails. Id love to start practicing in this area but as I became preg straight away I havent managed to save money to buy nail varnish.ive been trying to save but as any mum would know kids are expensive lol so this would be a great opportunity to maybe get a break and start practicing my passion. Anyway, happy birthday! And keep ur designs coming. Love em.

  2. Hi I’m Noa I’m thirteen and live in Cali I love painting my nails when I have free time cause I’m always playing soccer but that’s my sport nd having these nail polishes would be awesome I don’t get any very often but I think doing giveaways are cool it keeps people interested well thanks byeeeee

  3. 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™‚

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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™‚

  7. 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.

  8. 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. 😦 )

    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!” :))

  9. 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

  11. @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

  12. 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!

  13. 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!!!!!:))))

  14. 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!

    I like to learn new things-and I like to learn all by myself. EX: I learned portuguese all by myself, I do DIY projects all by myself from scratch and I learned to do nails all by myself!
    I have a really busy life so I want to feed my Obssesion, but I can’t, so when I dont do my nails I can’t sleep at night thinking of what to do next lol!
    I am new at this so this is a new experience, besides being a Mommy…but ready to learn NAILS 101, I learn a lot from you so I admire you talent!

  16. 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!

  17. Hey! My name is kiran and im 18 yrs old, an indian living in Chile! I am participating in this giveaway because one thing i am passionate about is nails, i always have something interesting in my nails, when i graduated from highschool my friends gave me an award of infinite free manicure, of course it was a joke because i am known for always having my nails pretty, nowdays my friends at college also notice my nails everytime they see me! I hope you choose me!!

  18. 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 :* )

  19. 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

  20. 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!

  21. 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!

  22. 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 =)

  23. 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

  24. 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!

  25. 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˜€

  26. 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˜€

  27. 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

Currently I’m a student, but since I’m sick a lot I spend most of my time at home. To have something todo while at home i started a blog about nailpolish. My obsession with nail polish only grew from point on. I hope I can get my bachelor degree next year.

  29. 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™‚

  38. Hey Atima,
    My Name is Mona and I’m 16 Years old. At first I apologize for my bad English 😦 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 😦 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.. 😦 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 😦 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.

  43. Hi
