Nail art challenge random draw winners - and a franken

I'm starting with nails today, but if you want to skip down straight away to see the random winners, then I understand.

Ok, are you back with me now?  Here is a franken / custom polish called Fiber Optic which I created for Shatter Me Claire's franken comp. If you haven't checked it out already, you should, cause there are some fantastic frankens over there, all with their ingredients listed out.  Plus you can vote for your favourite franken to win some Glitter Gal polishes.

The ingredients for this look like a big long list, but they are all pretty easily available:
  • 2x scoops of Adam & Eve glitter (TKB Trading)
  • 1x scoop of Indu Rose Moondust (TKB Trading) - this is what gives it the blue/purple duochrome look.
  • 1/2 scoop of purple glitter sample (TKB Trading)
  • 1/2 scoop of mauve micro glitter (TKB Trading)
  • 1/2 scoop of purple micro glitter (TKB Trading)
  • 1/2 scoop of lavender micro glitter (TKB Trading)
  • 1/2 scoop of iridescent micro glitter (TKB Trading)
  • 2x scoops of purple flakes (You Mix Cosmetics)
  • 2x scoops of blue to purple colour shifting glitter (You Mix Cosmetics)
  • 1x scoops large silver hex glitter (You Mix Cosmetics)
  • 2x scoops of Holo blue hex glitter (Bling Flake)
  • 5 drops of Ferric ferrocyanide tint - or use a dark blue polish.
  • 10 drops of red 7 tint - or a strong red polish
  • Untinted lacquer base (suspension base).

Ok, now the random winners of the Nail Art Challenge.  First up - the Aussies.  There were only 29 in the draw cause the overall winner (Ev) was removed from the random drawer after emailing me this morning.

Congratulations Bec! Please email me within 24 hours, or I'm going to randomly select another Aussie winner. 

Now the international ladies..... drum roll please...
Congratulations Jelena!  Please email me within 24 hours, or I'm going to randomly select another international winner.

Once again thank you to all the ladies (and gentlemen) that made the effort to enter, and of course thank you also to the amazing Lynnderella for making the amazing polishes which made the whole nail art challenge so huge for me!
