Dotting Tool Contest Results!

I can feel the anticipation flooding the room!

I have to tell you guys, you did not make this easy on us. There were so many that were being debated over for the winning spots  -- I wish I could give prizes to everyone!

The panel of judges have weighed in, and here are the winners...

FIRST PRIZE

RUNNER UP

RUNNER UP

These ladies have been contacted with the details for claiming their prizes.

Congratulations to the winners and thank you all for participating! I was absolutely floored by the amount of participation in this contest, and I hope you had fun! Make sure you check out all of the participating manis for some SERIOUS inspiration!

A special thanks to Inlinkz, who sponsored the first prize and provided the tool through which entries were submitted! I'd like to say, unsolicited, that the Inlinkz tool was extremely user friendly and intuitive, and provided a great way to manage all of the entries. The best part was that people could link their blogs along with their entries, and I had a number of people comment to me about how much traffic they got just from entering!

  6. So, the color blind mani is definitely interesting but 10 blank canvases should have won!! Their technique surpassed all of them. This crap happened to me in art college. The uncommon idea won over awesome procedure. Freaking shame!! >:{

    1. I'm sorry that you feel personally slighted by the decisions of a large judging panel. The fact of the matter is that there were a number of amazing entries, and not everyone can be a first prize winner.

      Having said that, the runners up also receive prizes, that I have paid for out of my own pocket, of my own volition, just for being great at something that they love. I hope that that is enough for them.

    2. Well, Anonymous, art is more than just technique and a well-done mediocre idea is still only a mediocre idea. I think that Goose's Glitter idea was original, fit the category MUCH better, and was still done beautifully. 10 Blank Canvases' was more involved, but that alone wasn't enough to make it better.

    3. That was my favorite too, the detail is stunning. However, everyone has different opinions and I realize that the judges must have had a hard time trying to choose the winner. I think all three of these are wonderful!

  25. Sarah, I just want to thank u for having such a FUN contest! It actually got all the girls of the family involved with coming up with ideas!! I surely would not have wanted to be in your shoes, or anyone on the voting panel!! What a JOB! CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners! I have a whole new respect for the "dotting tool", and I thank u for broadening my artistic "nail" brain!! ;) and if anyone should win something, I vote YOU win first place in all categories!! U amaze me every day when I see what you've done with ur nails for the day! (And YES! I do try it myself, as I have water color nails at the moment! I had a terrible outcome the first time, so I did as u did, went out and bought new acetone! It TOTALLY made a huge difference!! Thanks!!) Thank u again!! Cheryl (the gumball girl! Lol)

  37. Thx for having such a fun contest. I'm sure you had a heck of a time choosing the winners. At first when I looked at the winners design all I saw were dots. So I kept looking at it until I saw the numbers. Does that mean I'm color blind? Hehe. That was an original idea. Gotta give it to her. I would have never thought of that. Good for her. I looked at a lot of the designs & there were tons of great designs. There are a lot of talented artists out there.
    I think if anybody has a problem with your choices then they need to host their own contest. Then they can choose who they wish. It's not as easy as it seems. Thx again. It was a lot of fun.
    Much love
    Leslie
