Both rings are fabulous and well done to everyone!

The only thing which concerns me is that I thought this was a nail forum - why aren't there any nails included in the entries? (Sorry I may not be in the loop but just had to ask.):confused:

Yes I'm also a bit confused because the rules stated 5 nails and a ring.
Well done though the rings were fab.

Well done both of you, thought they were both great.

May be with how time precious we all are at the minute folks will struggle to get a set of nails and a ring done - could have lead to the lack of entries coming forward.

Well done to all that have put effort in on all 3 rounds though.

It should have been 5 nails and a ring lol but this weeks challenge was just that for everyone involved. The 5 geeks that were selected (the last 5 we had, no reserves) were very busy with baby showers, holidays and work commitments and one poor geek was poorly poorly sicksick :hug:.

Thanks for clarifying Rachel but this is the 'Nail' geek forum so would have thought nails should be the main emphasis of any competition and if they don't feature it shouldn't be a competition for the 'Nail' forum.

rachel, don't worry, i did the same thing!
at least the only two in this part of the competition did the same thing and could be judged on the same level.
well, i had to do mine last minute and i figured that acrylic used for nails would qualify on this site.
sorry, we all make mistakes!

The point is this... the rules are there for a reason, the moderators spent some time making sure that we had some guidelines for competitions and challenges so that EVERYONE knew where they stood before entering.

I just need to say that yes the two entrants didnt produce nails to go with the rings but this challenge was a nightmare for the people involved, the two geeks that did send pictures in worked hard on their entries and for that I am truly grateful.

I was ill the week of the challenge, when I posted the poll I was tired and just posted it where I posted the last ring challenge. At the time I hadn't even noticed that there were no nails in the pictures, I was just pleased to get some pics for the challenge.

It it is that much of a problem, that there are no nails in the pictures, move the thread to chit chat and then problem solved.

Not a prob for me - i know how hard and time consuing it is to produce a ring - let alone the matching nails!! All in the space of a week, fitting in with jobs and kids and other stuff!

Both designs were 'ring only' which made it fair - so its not as if one person wasn't pulling their weight so to speak. xx

I think they are both awesome, but especially love the second. Am wondering how you managed to get the squares so square, must have taken ages to do. I couldn't even manage a half decent single colour, nothing special ring. It broke on the first day, too thin and too narrow. Anyway well done.

We can all learn from this mistake, making sure it never happens again and know and understand the rules before posting.
That is why us mods took a lot of time and effort to post these rules so it would be fair to everyone.

If you are not up and able to continue running the competition, It would be wise to hand it off to someone else who is ...right ladies?:|
Congrats to the winners. Both Rings show quite the talent.
