A contest: Diana, her hound and points of color

Hello ladies,

Today I have news of a contest. The hunting hound will point to the details!

Nail Art Pens from Migi! 

The Gold Set includes 8 colors, each with a standard polish brush and nail art pen. These shades can be simply painted on the nail or used for artistic design. 
The Gold Set also comes with an instruction pamphlet and a cleaning pin to maintain the flow of polish through the pen tips.
The colors are joined together by rings for display and storage. These can be removed by unscrewing the polish cylinder from the ring. You can regroup the colors in any way you like. 

The shades included in the Gold Set are purple/aqua, gold/violet, glitter navy/white, and green/orange. The pens pictured are part of my own collection. The winner will receive the Gold Set directly from Migi Nail Art. Many thanks to the Migi Nail Art company for sponsoring this contest for readers of painted Lady fingers.

I'll be doing some looks with the Migi Nail Art pens during the contest period.

The Points of Color Contest is open internationally for followers and e-mail subscribers. The contest runs through the end of the day November 20th.
