Load N Vote Nail Art Contest!

This month, I've teamed up with a new website called Load N Vote to bring you my first Nail Art Contest!
All you have to do is upload a picture of your nail art to be in with a chance of winning Essie's 2012 Summer Collection, Bikini So Teeny (swatches here)!! The best part is, the contest is open worldwide!

There is no theme to this contest, just enter your most impressive nail art using whichever tools and techniques you want to. Show us your skillzz and the public will vote for a winner.

My favourite part about the Load n Vote way of doing things is the fool proof voting process. All the entries go in to an algorithm, voters are shown two entries at time and must pick their favourite until every entry has been seen. The design that proves most popular throughout the whole voting period wins. Simple as that and there's no fear of it becoming a popularity contest, it's completely down to you and your mad skills. So, ladies, brushes at the ready and it's time to sprinkle some sparkle!!

Today's nail art is based on the site's logo and I added some glitter for good measure! After all, I can't tell you to go and enter if I'm not gonna put some work in myself! Check below for all the dates and info about entering.



Terms
The contest is open worldwide
You can enter any nail design at all as long as it's your own work
The picture you submit must show at least four fingers
It can be a brand new design or one that you've done in the past
One entry per account

Time Frame
As the site name suggests, there is a loading period and a voting period.
You can load your design from now until the last day of the month - June 30th at 11.59pm EST
At the stroke of midnight on June 30th, the contest rolls straight over to the voting phase which will run until July 20th at 11:59am EST.

Because I know I can always figure these things out easier if there's a good visual, I've made us a little timeline to avoid any confusion!



Who's excited?! I know I am, I can't wait to see what you all come up with. Good luck everyone!

  6. Oh God, I really want to enter but I have no ideas, and a supreme lack of talent when compared to other nail artists out there. Oh well, I'll get thinking I guess. :')

    1. I'm not sure if you can do it on a mobile. The sign in buttons are in the top right of the website. You can create an account or sign in with Facebook.

  26. Hello!

  28. I'm really very sad... :( I submitted my entry but there must have been a technical issue because my picture wasn't uploaded. All it shows is a blank space. Are you able to delete that entry so that I can try to submit one again? :( :( :( It's under my name Jme, with the title The Avengers.

  29. Just entered for fun ^_^ Good luck to everyone!
    Thanks Sammersaurus for hosting this contest ;)

  30. Why does the Date for entering keep getting extended? It's good because I can maybe enter now but I also want to vote now.

    ReplyDelete
  31. There is no voting allowed at the moment....I still can't see the other entries...Is it me or just something went wrong?....

    ReplyDelete
  32. Load n vote is not a very good website..... Now I can't even open the contest page to load OR vote! Voting started yesterday but I only voted on a few before it said error and now it says the page cannot be found. What's up with this? How will you choose a winner if the website doesn't work

    ReplyDelete
  33. Half of the entries aren't showing up (the images won't load) so how are people meant to vote for them?

    1. That happened to me too! I just skipped the ones I couldn't see but it's always the same ones that don't show up. I hope mine isn't one of those....

      Delete
  34. Mine didn't show up, either (even thought it uploaded just fine back when I created my entry). I just tried contacting the Load & Vote people with their contact form and I don't even know if they got anything because the page just reloaded with the empty form when I clicked on "send."

    I really hope this gets fixed. I was excited about this.

  35. Did anything ever come of this?
