The contest was on Birchbox's Pinterest site. You needed to post a picture of your nails while wearing a Band-Aid. I had just received my first Birchbox ever & I actually received the Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids in my box, so I was so excited to check them out for inspiration for a mani.
This is the design I submitted to the contest. I was inspired by the sequin motif Cynthia Rowley Band-Aid. I started with a white base coat and used a bobby pin as a dotting tool with (I think it was 12) different colours. I used warm & cool colours, just like the image. After the dots dried, I used the tip of a pencil as a dotting tool and dotted the center of the dots with white polish to form the sequin.
Two days ago, I received an email from Birchbox saying that I won & yesterday I received my prize package!
