Nail Art: Poinsettias

Ever since I started nail art in March this year, I never have joined any nail art contest, that is because I don't have the skill yet. Until now I'm still in the process of learning the craft.

This month, Ms. Rina Alcantara a Filipina nail artist celebrated her blog's "Simply Rins" 3rd year blogversary, and to grace her success she hosted a nail art contest with theme "It's A Red Christmas". 


I made my entry too for the first time and was included in the 23 finalists, unfortunately I did not win as expected, all other entries are way too beautifully made. Even though I did not get those lovely prizes that I'm dreaming about but I'm still happy to be part of it. And after joining this contest for the first time, I'm now inspired to join next time and hopefully help me improve this hobby that I come to love.

So here's more of the design I made.




Have a Wonderful Christmas!

And Congratulation to the Winner of Simply Rins Nail Art Contest.

    2. Just go on with the Contests! You'll eventually get the feel of what the judges look for... how you execute, etc.

  11. I love the poinsettia design. Do you do nail art by yourself? If you are right handed, do you have a hard time designing the nails on your right hand?
