The Equestria Nail Art Contest - Blogger Edition!

Ready for something different?

I recruited some of our favorite bloggers to participate in a Nail Art Contest inspired by Equestria and My Little Pony! 
The winner of the contest will be receiving a full size set of The Equestria Collection and two additional winners will be receiving mini sets! 

Contest voting will run from now until May 27 11:59 PM EST. 

Please fill out the form here to vote or click here to like your favorite entry on Facebook!

Voters can vote for as many entries as they wish, but only one vote per entry per method. So if Rainbow Honey was your favorite entry, you could vote once here and like my picture once on Facebook. If you love two entries, you can vote for both, just following the same guidelines. Please note an email address or Facebook account is required to vote and multiple votes on the same email address for the same entry will be discarded. Open to all participants 18 years or older or those with parental permission. No purchase required. 

Entry: Delight In Nails
Jessie Says: I had a blast doing this. Thanks for giving me the chance!

Karine Says: I was inspired by Rarity! Thank you for doing this, it was much fun participating!

Entry: Galactic Lacquer
GL Says: I kept it pretty simple, and went for the cutie marks on five different ponies. My thumb is Rarity, my index is Applejack, my middle is Rainbow Dash, my ring is Fluttershy, and my pinky is Pinkie Pie. I thought that the pinky finger was only fitting for that! Read more about her art here!

Entry: Quite Polished
QP Says: I wish I could have just done them all on one hand but there are six main ponies and I only have 5 fingers!

Entry: A Lacquered Affair |
LA Says: Twilight Sparkle is missing from this batch. Wish I had a sixth finger (then again, not). Plus, she's the main protagonist of the show. Here's a promise: if I win this contest, I'll do a full mani/ nail art inspired by Twilight Sparkle! Pinkie promise ;) Read more about her art here!

Entry: Marci's Nails
Marci Says: I picked Rainbow Dash to be my main inspiration for this. She is one of my favorite ponies! Read more here!

Entry: Kyoti's Nails
Kyoti Says: Applejack would be proud! Read more here!

Entry: Ashley Is Polish Addicted 
Ashley Says: I used Rainbow Dash as my inspiration. :)

Entry: Beauty-Shoes-Nails-Fun
Yoha Says: All free hand used 14 different polishes :)

Entry: Pixel Polish |
Pixel Says: I got inspired by Megasweet's mane six wallpapers. They were simplistic and beautiful. I wanted to paint all of them, but I'd have four nails left blank! So I wanted to include Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, Spike and Derpy. Read more here!

Entry: Denny's Digits
Victoria Says: I love rainbows & I've had this idea in my head for a rainbow mani & I finally decided on doing it... Read more here!

Entry: My Nail Polish Obsession |
Jen Says: I really liked the “brand” on the ponies rear end and how animated, yet pretty the eyes are.  So I decided to capture both of those things on my nails.  Then because they are horses I did a good luck horseshoe on my pinky. Read more here!

Entry: NailBlog.Net |
Christina Says: These are my natural nails and I insisted on using strictly nail polish and a paintbrush. Read more here!

Entry: Mega Nailattude |
Angel Says: I spent days on this mani because I wanted to make sure it was perfect. Thumb: My Little Pony Logo, Index Finger: Custom made Rainbow Honey Pony, Middle Finger: Fluttershy, Ring Finger: Twilight Sparkle, Pinky: Cutie Marks.

Entry: Kat Hearts Nails |
Kat Says: I used Sally Hansen Presto Pink as my base color/Pinkie Pie body.  Then I used China Glaze Ahoy for the tips/mane.  The balloons were done with dotting tools and Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow/Zoya Jo.  Read more here!

Entry: Pointless Cafe |
PC Says: Inspired by Twilight Sparkle

Entry: Fynn and Pokey |
F&P Says: Inspired by Princess Celestia’s mane and tail in DeviantArtist dreampaw’s portfolio, this delicate design started off with a white base color, then many pastel colors were sponged and brushed on, and finally a white jelly polish (Essie Marshmallow) was applied to give it a milky watercolor effect.

Entry: Captivating Claws |
Jodi Says:  I water-marbled the index, middle, and pinky and free-handed the rainbows and clouds on my ring and thumb.  :)  

Entry: Manicurity |
Emma Says: This is Rainbow Dash :) Each nail is a different part of her - her eye, hair, wing, cutie mark, and more hair. I picked Rainbow Dash because I’ve always loved rainbows; when I was little I would write each line of each letter of my name with a different crayon.

Entry: The Polish Well |
Mich Says: I’ve thought really long and hard about the designs and I decided that the only way to include all the ponies (I love them all!) is to do a simple stripes design with all their colors. It also shows how the colors of one pony lead nicely to that of another ;) [From thumb to pinkie: Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Applejack] The stripes are also topped with one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust for that extra magical sparkle!

Entry: PrettyPolishPlease |
Katie Says: I gave it a go, even though free hand art is definitely not my strong point! Read more here!
