WOW!! Judging Nail Art is Tough!!



I was thinking that picking one winner of this challenge would be too difficult so I purposely set aside three prizes thinking I would cover my bases.  Clearly, I should have set aside quite a few more.  I decided that I would ask my fellow judges to pick their four top favorites and would tally up the votes.  Although we were able to decide after agonizing deliberation, it was really, really tough.  Finally, the decision came down to the stamping since that was the main purpose of the competition and I wanted it to be the major focus of the manicure since that was the only real criteria.  I am definitely going to do this again in the future.  I have found some great new blogs to follow with some really amazing talent.  So, without further ado, the winners are......

This amazing entry by The Nail Buff shows flawless stamping execution. 

 
 
From Karine's Vernis Club, she did a stamping skittle manicure.  Here is a pic from her post that shows both hands.  She submitted the one on the right to be judged.
 
 
And lastly, here is Mandy's Polish.  What I loved about this was the execution, and, the comparison she did to her first attempt in her blog post.  Amazing improvement.
 
 
 
I just want everyone to know that the quality of every entry was amazing and hopefully, you will all agree from seeing the entries that it was a tough call.
 
I also want to thank Stephanie from A Little Polish, Victoria from Manicurator and Katee from A Girl and Her Polish for helping my judge.  I am glad I didn't have to make the decision alone and grateful that you all put such serious thought into helping me select the winners.
