One of the things that I like best about the nail community is how involved we all are. I am constantly seeing people supporting their fellow nail artists and bloggers through Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter! I remember how much I loved seeing everyone participating in the 31 Day Challenge together back in September. It really made me feel such a great sense of community.
For 2014, I am participating in two projects that I believe will help foster that same sense of community. I hope you will consider participating!
Twitter is a really fun and casual way to interact with the nail community, so it goes without saying that I'm really excited to be a co-host in a new, bi-weekly Twitter chat alongside Michelle from All Lacquered Up and Jen from The PolishAholic!
Our first chat is taking place this Sunday, January 12th at 9PM EST. We'll be chatting about celebrity polish collaborations & red carpet nail trends (the Golden Globes are that night, after all), plus we've got some giveaway prizes to hand out throughout the chat for anyone that joins in on the fun!
Follow us on Twitter @AllLacqueredUp, @ChalkboardNails, @ThePolishAholic and tweet using #NailGlossip. You can also RSVP to the chat on Twubs to follow the conversation, interact with us and get updates about future chats. Visit Twubs.com/NailGlossip to connect!
In order to be eligible to win a prize during a #NailGlossip chat, you must be: A US Resident, follow @AllLacqueredUp @ChalkboardNails and @ThePolishAholic on Twitter and use the hashtag #NailGlossip. Winners will be randomly selected. You must provide your address within 48 hours of prize notification. Prizes will ship within 6 weeks of Twitter chat.

But, let's face it, the 31 Day Challenge is INTENSE. And it only comes around once a year! I wanted to start a challenge group on my terms, and I gathered a fantastic group of ladies to help me out.
Once a month, Rebecca, Sammy, Leslie, and I will be putting out a nail art prompt for your interpretation. Each prompt will have a post date and a specific hashtag to link everyone up. Since hashtags work across all social media platforms, you'll be able to easily track everyone that is participating! It's low commitment and fun. Stretch your creative limits!
For January, the theme is "reinvention." Interpret it however you want, then get ready to post your manicure on the 27th using the hashtag #LLreinvention.
Have questions? Hop on over to facebook.com/thelacquerlegion for more info (be sure to "Like" it for updates)! The four of us will be watching the page to answer any questions.
I really hope you will participate in these awesome initiatives! I think both of these projects will be so much fun and I would love to see huge involvement from the community. Spread the word!
