    Christine, I would like to submit but I’m not good at taking clear macro photos. Do you have to use a dslr or is it photoshop or technique that gets you close, vivid, clear pictures?

    • LOL! I spend hours on it all – I have far too much equipment and software to get everything as best as I can.

      But the reality is, a lot of cameras can go into macro mode (look for the flower), and if you don’t have a lot of light, use flash. If the flash is too bright, adjust it downwards if you can, but you can always hold a tissue over it, which will diffuse the flash.

  4. Oh this is so exciting! Doing my nails right now!

    Christine, Loving the idea! I’d like to submit some nail art too. Can I submit just one or multiple and you’ll choose one you like the most? Does it have to be a brand new manicure or could it be one once published on my blog in the past?

    • If you submit multiple ones, most likely I’ll just choose one, but it depends on number of submissions and if I can even choose :) And it doesn’t have to be something brand new, though preferably something you did with spring in mind… this spring, haha.

  6. Christine, do we need to paint our own nails or can we do the designs on a nail practice wheel? Are we limited to polish only or can we use acrylic paint and/or Konad stamping?

    • A wheel would be okay, and there’s no limitation on materials. I just wanted to at least make it more than one polish used on all the nails (like your typical manicure)!
