Style Haul Spring Nails Giveaway: I Won!

So I received a wonderful message this morning on one of my Instagram photos from Style Haul:

I was so excited, I had completely forgotten I entered this Nail Art Giveaway hosted by Style Haul and China Glaze! You might remember these nails, which I posted on my Instagram and here on the blog. This is the first nail contest I have ever won so I'm super happy!

I went over to Style Haul's Instagram and saw the photo collage they put together of the winners. So exciting! Then I realized, wait I didn't get any tag notificiations on this photo and as I browsed through their other photos, I saw they featured my nail design on Friday as well! I realized, oh snaps, they tagged the wrong Gaudy Glam :( They tagged Gaudy_Glam (some dude) instead of Gaudy__Glam. What's the difference? I have 2 underscores in my name...uhh, total FAIL on my part for using 2 underscores.

I was totally ok with everything until I saw this:

NOT COOL!!!! Trying to take credit for something you know is not yours?! I don't know if this person also took the extra step in emailing their contact info as well and in turn will be receiving my prize of Spring China Glaze not cool AND leaving a comment after mine! Tisk Tisk.

But anyway, the silver lining is when I went to change my IG name, the original name I wanted was available! @GaudyGlam: no spaces, no confusion!

So I guess some good came out of all of this and I'm still happy I won, even if someone else is getting credit for it. "Will the real slim shady please stand up!"

Polka Dots & Floral Print Nails

Spring has arrived! Polka Dots & Floral Print are definitely on trend this Spring so I thought I'd combine the two for an easy but very cute nail look. Instead of using all pastel colors which would also look great, I decided to make it a little retro by using the good ol' black and white combo. Enjoy!

Polishes Used
Black: Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris 
White: Circus Reverso
Darker Pink: Sinful Colors Beautiful Girl
Lighter Pink: Spoiled My Button Fell Off
Green: Mixed Julie G Gelato in Venice with Color Club Age of Aquarius

Pastel Nails

Whenever Spring starts to shine its way through, I'm always in the mood to paint my nails in pastel colors. Maybe it's all the Easter merch that pops up everywhere but to me, pastels = spring! Using all drugstore polishes, I went for a different color on each finger because it was just more fun. (Plus, it's a good way to rock all the colors you love if you can't decide...haha.) This picture is taken on the 4th day of wear and I'm quite impressed nothing has noticeably chipped yet!

Polishes Used:
Pinky Finger: Sinful Colors  Sugar Rush
Ring Finger: Revlon Sunshine Sparkle
Middle Finger: Sinful Colors Candy Coated
Pointer Finger: Sinful Colors Orange Cream
Thumb: Julie G Gelato in Venice
