OPI's Nicki Minaj Nail Art Contest

I entered OPI's nail art contest where you were to do a design representing one of the 4 outfits they have pictured on their Facebook page. My photo seems to have been disqualified with no notification regarding the reason. I'm sorry but that is wrong in my book on so many levels. My design was
Inspired by the wonderfully talented Nail. Artist Robin Moses: I asked her permission to do the design and also gave her credit when I submitted my entry. I wasn't too happy with how my nails came out but I submitted it anyway:


  1. did the contest guidelines say at all that you couldn't use a design from another person even with permission? other than that why else would they disqualify :( that is not fair!

    i love this design i think it looks great!

    1. I did put "this design was inspired by Robin Moses" in the comments of the picture. I also asked Robin if she minded and she said it was fine as long as I gave her credit.
      It's such a bummer that they disqualified so many people!

  2. It really sucks that they disqualified you. They should at least give you a reason!

  3. I think it turned out great. I'm not sure why you weren't happy with it. I don't know what Robins looked like. I usually watch all of her videos but I guess I missed this one but I like it. I think it looks really good.
