Let Me Upgrade You

I added some black block detail to the gradient from my last post. I just took a striper brush and my trusty W7 Black to it and here's the result. I looove it!

I'm sure a lot of you are wondering what's going on with the Load N Vote contest. Voting should be live by now but it seems there's another hiccup with their site and/or server. I am so sorry but I guess that's the risk I took running a competition with a start up site. I know some of you saw the post that got published earlier today when voting was supposed to open, that will go up again once everything is fixed. Once again guys, I'm sorry, but it really is beyond my control.

  2. The Load N Vote isn't showing half of the entries. You click where it says 'View Original Image' and it says the page doesn't exist. Kind of unfair...

    1. I suppose that's why Sammy explained that in this post? It's out of her control. x

  6. Love this. Totally changed the look. I wouldn't give a second thought about the contest kinks. The site has great potential and it looks like it will be a lot of fun to use when they are up and running. Your just giving them the opportunity for success. Can't wait to see everyone's amazing creations.

  10. The idea of the load n vote website is nice...it's really simple to enter and to vote...it's just too bad that they don't have everything figured out yet. I love your gradients btw! I tried your tutorial once but found get it right, but I was using a lot of colors, so maybe I'll try 2 next time. But I hope the lnv contest gets up and running again soon so we can see all the fantastic designs and finally have a winner!

  21. Amazing how different/awesome this looks with the black added!! :D And it really is too bad about the LoadNVote website... and like you said, it's completely out of your control which, if you're anything like me, must be extremely frustrating. Hopefully the issues get resolved quickly :)

  25. Your nails look almost CG how cool! Sorry things with Ln'V are such a mess. The idea is smashing, but the execution flawed. I'm sure they meant well but things like this always happen when companies are starting out. Hopefully they'll get it all worked out soon!

    It looks like something the evil queen in snow white would wear...Isn't it amazing how simple details could make such an impact on an existing mani?

  31. I love upgrades.

    Do you remember the commercial Beyonce did a while ago where she sang "I want an upgrade, upgrade"? We still sing that at our house...

    I want an upgrade...
