A panel of fashion and beauty experts along with nail art enthusiasts will choose the winner who will receive $200 and the title of Sally Hansen Nail Art Sweetheart.
The bloggers were invited to sip an All-American Sweetheart Martini or Mocktini as they waited their turn to choose one of five different styles, including spray-painted hearts; a black and metallic look with studs; spring flowers; a red, black, white, and gold camo print; and a spring themed, multi-colored, spray paint effect. The nail team used thin brushes to create most of the effects with the multitude of shades from the brand’s Complete Salon Manicure, Insta-Dry Fast Dry Nail Color, and even the Nail Art Pens. Once dry, the bloggers were invited to walk their fingers in front of Glam’s ManiCam, which easily became the highlight of the evening.
