Submit Your Fall Nail Art For the Next "From the Readers" Feature

Hi everyone! Last year, you may recall that I did a "From the Readers" series on easy nail art tips and techniques. And it was great, it was awesome, and I never did it again! Why?! I loved the amazing submissions and the response, and I've been thinking for a long time of reviving that idea. How would you feel about a quarterly or bi-monthly "From the Readers" post?




On that note, I'm looking for submissions for the next "From the Readers" feature. Instead of doing several posts and featuring everyone who submits, I'll be selecting my favourites and featuring approximately 5 or 6 people. You don't have to be a blogger or an advanced nail artist, I'm just looking for clear photos, good cleanup, variety and creativity. It can be simple nail art, intricate nail art, or anything in between. All techniques are welcome too, except for nail wraps.

Like last time, there's a Google form to fill out, but I promise it's short. If you're featured, I'll put together a short blurb about your nail art, and if you have a nail related blog/social media, I'll link to that as well!

  • Theme: Fall nail art (ex. fall colours, back to school, leaves, the switch from cold cereal to hot cereal, whatever makes you think of fall)
  • Deadline: on or around October 11th, midnight EST (I may extend the deadline if there's not a lot of submissions, but try to get it in before then).
  • Instructions: Fill out the Google form below. Please only submit one nail art design - your own nail art that you've created yourself.

If you're a blogger, especially a new-ish blogger, it's a good way to get your blog out there. Plus I love featuring the talented nail artists and bloggers that read this blog (or follow on social media), so I hope you'll consider submitting something!

  3. I only hope I filled out the form correctly! Thank you for the chance to be featured on your amazing blog, I really hope I get picked! :-)
    My only questions are, may we add our watermark or does it have to be plain and does the design have to be created specifically for the contest? I created a design the other day and have shared it on my Facebook page but want to know if it's still ok to submit as an entry. Thank you :-)

    1. Hi Natasha - as long as you included your email, I can get in touch with you if there's any issues.

      As for your questions, yes your design should be watermarked if you normally watermark your photos. And it can be something that you've already posted on your blog/IG/FB page. It can even be something you did last year if you don't have any fall designs done this year.

      Also, just to clarify it's not a contest, there's no prizes besides being featured in an upcoming post. This is just my way to recognize the talented people who read/follow my blog! :)

  6. I rarely do nail art, but I love stamping and I might do something fall-inspired.
    I have found several new blogs to follow thanks to your Beginner Blogger's Bootcamp and I am sure I'll find more in From the Readers posts.

  11. Ooh, I love this idea! I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to do something for the theme this time (It's not fall here - but I'll see if I get a chance) but I think it's a great idea and I hope you keep doing it!
