Get Involved with the Nail Community in 2014!

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!

#NailGlossip
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!

Giveaway Rules
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. 



The Lacquer Legion
It's no secret that sometimes even the most creative artists get into a slump! That's why I love things like the 31 Day Challenge - they really get your brain going and thinking outside of the box.

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!

  5. This means so much to me!!! I am disabled (pain, etc) so it's hard to paint my nails, do nail art frequently or blog as much as other groups require. It can be lonely!! So thank you so very much xoxo I can't wait to try this out! Now I have to put on my thinking cap ;) xoxo

  13. Brilliant and lovely idea to start the Lacquer Legion. If you want to be involved does that mean you have to have twitter to hashtag the photograph?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hashtags will work throughout these social media platforms:
    Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, and maybe even Google+?
    You are welcome to post using any of those platforms or you can just post it on the Lacquer Legion Facebook wall.

  22. Hi, I like this idea, great initiative! I wonder how I use the hashtag in Pinterest? I have a blog which I post my pictures normally so my participatement would be through Pinterest.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hashtags work the same way on Pinterest - just when you go to Pin the image, add #llreinvention to the caption!
