I’ve never been to the Olympics, but I’m pretty sure I just experienced that feeling. As a finalist in the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Contest, I competed alongside four other talented girls to win the Sally Hansen Grand Prize.
As mentioned in our previous post, the whole event was planned to perfection! Held on the rooftop of the Gansevoort Hotel, we sipped on pink cosmos created exclusively for Sally Hansen and we marveled at beautiful arrangements of bright Sally Hansen polishes and nail art supplies (it was quite the sight!). That summer day in New York City, I’m confident that the hotel had the largest gathering of nail art aficionados, nail polish lovers, and beauty fanatics. The competition itself was both exciting and stressful - we had to create nail art designs inspired by “New York City” and “Color Destinations,” all in under thirty minutes. I was more than grateful for the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes - those bad boys dry very fast and work perfectly for nail art.
The best part of the whole experience was meeting the Grand Finale Contest judges (get ready to be star-struck) - thank you to Sally Hansen Ambassador Tracylee of Luxe by TracyLee, Sarah of Chalkboard Nails, Nola from Glam.com, and Leandra from Man Repeller! These ladies were absolutely wonderful, had a wealth of knowledge, and were thoroughly inspiring (and they were all around awesome!).
Thank you to Sally Hansen and everyone who was a part of the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Contest!
Stay Pretty, Mackenzie M.
