OCNAILART Konad Contest Winner Announced!

This just in from Kathleen- CONGRATS Barbara!!!! You did an awesome job!

It is with great pride and excitement that the winner of the Ocnailart Konad Contest is announced! Congratulations to Barbara Wacht of Vienna Austria, who is the winner of the Konad Professional Salon Case Kit, valued at over $400!! Barbara heard about the contest on, so Scrangie will also be receiving a Professional Salon Case Kit from Ocnailart!

The judges were Wanda V., Jennifer W, and Bokhee D. Their winning pick was unanimous, but all three expressed how difficult a job this was, as all of the entries were gorgeous and very well done!

Barbara's winning entry (below) featured a simple but beautiful manicure featuring a portion of the flower design from Image Disk M21. The judges not only loved the color, but the simplicity and artistic flair with which Barbara placed multiple stampings of the flower (less the stem) and how she added coordinating rhinestones. The photography and use of props was also very artistic and well done, as well.

I would like to thank all of the contestants and blog owners from the bottom of my heart for supporting this project, which was so much fun and brought so much delight!

Congratulations to Barbara (and Scrangie) and many thanks to all of you who participated in this contest - all of your designs were lovely!!! Your artistic abilities amaze me!

    Congratulations! I can think of no one else who deserves this more than you! (In addition to Barbara, that is!)

    That being said, you inspire so many of us in so many ways, and will have the abundant resources to continue to do so with that awesome Pro-case filled with Konad goodness.
