This is my tenth year teaching, and I love it. 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!

    P.s : I live in Isreal and that fact is definitely not helping my nail art im doing nail art for about year now and I have never like never tried Essie before ( yes, it’s a disasters ) not only that I didn’t try China Glaze , Ncla , Picture Polish , Sally Handson they all aren’t available unfortunately also I entered a lot of giveaways I just don’t have luck ! So if I do win this I would still believe that there’s some faith in the world haha .
    Plus if you go through my page on instagram you can see that my designs don’t suck at all !
    Fingers crossed like really really want to get this! Other girls can just buy it but in my case that isn’t an option so if I win this I would be thankful gurl !
    Thanks a lot much love much love from Isreal and I do love your designs peace !!!

  4. Also, beauty was a way to overcome being bullied through primary school, I felt so horrible about myself but that was my little way of making my self have a bit of self confidence. Your amazing nails inspired me, I have admired your designed for ages! They are beautiful and so perfect! 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

  5. Hi! My name is ester and I live in Sweden!

Im still kind of new to nail art but I know that this is what i want to do for the rest of my life!:) I love to paint my nails in glittery polish especially in the winter when they shine a little bit extra.

  6. Hi! My name is Eliatha, pronounced Eh-lee-ah-tah. (It’s French ^.^) I just turned 18 on veterans day and I live in the state of New Jersey. My instagram username is __LotusFlowerBomb (two underscores). I do nail art but they are not nearly as beautiful and creative as yours. My passion for nail art/polish came out of nowhere and I have no clue what got me into it, but now that I am into it my nails always look fab! This giveaway is just what I need to add to my collection. I don’t enter giveaways that have items I know I will not use because, even though there is a tiny chance that I might win, it is still selfish of me and I might stand in the way of someone who truly deserves to win. But anyways, you’re amazing and good luck to everyone!

    Hello Atima ,First off Happy Birthday!!!! I recently became interested in the world of nail art last year, at the end of September, so my polish collection isn’t very big. 😦 Your nail art is my motivation, to one day hopefully be as good as you! πŸ™‚ I have a few Essies which i love! So to win these would just make my year!! Thank you for hosting such a lovely giveaway! πŸ™‚

  14. Instagram- rissamariexx
    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!

  15. 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!

    • Yay for twins I have identical twin girls. And I’m deaf in my right ear lol but I don’t know sign language, I should probably learn xx

  16. 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

    • 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.

  17. My email address and Instagram @vannybabes89 what can I tell you about myself my name is Vanessa I live in canada (Montreal). I love nails I just love it I’m entering In to school January for nails and I’m super excited about that !! I’ve posted some pictures of what I’ve done you can check it out on my Instagram. You are so very inspirational and I enjoy all you designs. Xox thank you for this opportunity happy holidays :):)!!

  19. My insta name= eliannarodriguez
    I can honestly say that in all my life I have never won a giveaway or anything some people have the luck and some don’t. I would love to win this giveaway because I have lots of nieces & we get together & have nail parties & I would love to add these colors to our collection. We love to paint the town red one nail @ a time! πŸ™‚

  20. 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™‚

  22. 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 :*

  23. 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!

    • 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

  24. 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!

  26. 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!

  32. 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™‚

    • 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

  33. 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™‚

    My instagram is : Cubanoprincess2
    Email is:

    • Wow you go girl with the shaven head, such a bold thing to do. I dont think I could do that. Thanks for entering and sharing xx

  36. 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™‚

  37. 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.


    • Hi Cena,

      Ahh yes that can be an issue with textured polishes. Are you using a base coat? You could use a top coat but it will change the texture.
