And the Lucky Winner Is.......

With the help of my 2 "LOVELY" assistants....I have selected a winner. The lucky winner is....


Here is a link to the "very official" drawing. My girls were very excited to help select a winner.
Thank you to all of you who entered and did a wonderful job on both blog postings, and emails. I really appreciate you helping me get the word out about my new blog.

BIG thanks to Kathleen of OCnailart.com for generously sponsoring this giveaway! Kathleen did this as a wonderful favor to me and I just can't thank her enough...other than to continue to praise her awesome company & customer service!
On that note...I couldn't think of a more fitting winner for the give away...Julie AKA "Jollyo" in blogger has been following my blog, it seems, from the beginning. Also, she knows first hand how terrific OCNAILART is. So, after drawing and searching my saved folder in aol for her entry....I squealed with delight, cuz I was so happy for her.

Here is her entry:
Hi,

My name is Julie, aka "jollyo". I have been using my Konad for about 2 weeks now. I just LOVE it!! I was trying to do nail

art with fine, tiny brushes. Let's just say that my hand is not the steadiest. But using the Konad has fixed that. I get compliments on my nails all the time now!! I LOVE that fact that it's pretty easy, and super fun!! It really takes the hard work out of doing nail art!!

Now, why I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! I'm soooo glad that I found you. How I found you??? Well, I just did a google search for Konad blogs. It was that simple!! I have also noticed that other blogs have a link to you on their sites as well. I should just go ahead and make you my home page I guess!! Cause I really do check your blog about 20 times a day!! I love your step-by-step tutorials!! They make it easy for a beginner like me to make wonderful designs!! I also like the fact that you use "OTC"(over the counter) polishes!! It's nice to know that I don't have to use a "special" polish everytime, to get a great look!! And I like the fact that you deal with OCNail!! Like I said on your blog, I WILL NEVER BUY MY KONADS anywhere else!!! Their customer service ROCKS!! Now for my pic. I just want to let you know that my camera is well....SORRY!! This mani looks MUCH BETTER in person!!

I took your "Killer Swirl" and changed the colors. I used Finger Piants, they seem to work well with the Konad!Thanks for all the hard work that you put into your blog!!

Julie

So, CONGRADULATIONS again....and thank you to all of you contestants who contributed your time and energy to this Give Away. I really hope to do it AGAIN soon!

Just stumbled across your blog today, it's great! I love that you show the instructions and which plate you used. I am just getting into Konad and only have one plate so far (M36 i think), so I love seeing all your ideas. I would love to see what you could do with the seahorse/ocean animals plate. Thanks for all the great info!

Wow, this is a great blog. I just started using Konad Friday, and I was searching around for more info (I'm having trouble getting some of the images to transfer from the plate to the stamp, especially when I do some of the more all-over-nail designs like on plate M63). I will be posting my first efforts on my blog tomorrow! I'd love for you to stop by and if you have any advice that'd be aweomse!!! And I am going to add you to my blogroll :). Love your tips and tutorials! Thanks!!!

julie....hey, hows the kit? waiting for some pics. YOu totally need to email me, id love to post an update?
In response to plate m36...love that one, it is one of my must haves. so many workable designs. As far as the fish & stuff, I will just have to do one. I will have to do a hawiian themed one ( after i return) that has flowers and fish? great idea. But i think the images are rather large. My girls like them, but they are tooooo big for thier little fingers. I'll have to paint my MIL nails again.
