Welcome to our 3rd annual July nail art challenge called Oh Mon Dieu! The OMD Part 3 is a 31 day international nail challenge with prizes. Each year it gets bigger and better! Don’t worry if you’ve never tried a challenge before because anyone with a passion for nail art can join our OMD! Basically, for each of the 31 daily designs that you complete you earn a chance to win a prize in the end. In August we’ll pick 5 lucky winners from different areas of the world. The winners will be selected at random- no judging! Are you ready for some nail art excitement this July? Here’s how it works-
We have 31 days of nail prompts in July. You don’t have to start on day 1 and you don’t have to do every day. You can jump in whenever you can. But it’s definitely fun to do them in order if you can! If you have any questions about these prompts, don’t hesitate to contact one of the OMD3 hosts- Brijit from Brijits Digits, Jacqui from Craftynail, Jemma from Eeeek! Nail Polish! and Lindsay from Nail That Accent! Here are the themes….
HOW TO ENTER-
1) Paint your nails starting July 1st 2015 and post pics of them on your blog or social media account.
2) Enter your manicure via our easy inlinkz which will be posted on the upcoming OMD3 Reference Page from the main menu of our blogs.
3) After you enter each day’s manicure on OMD3 Reference Page then click the rafflecopter on that page for a chance to win a prize in the end.
We will be giving away 5 prizes at the end. The prize winners will be chosen at random. But the more daily prompts you do, the more chances you have to win! Someone who enters one of the daily prompts will have only 1 raffle entry, where an entrant who does all 31 days will get 31 chances to win! The 5 winners will be chosen from different areas in the world on August 7th, 2015. We will pick one winner from the USA, one from Canada, one from the UK, one from the rest of Europe (not the UK), and one winner from the ‘Rest of the World’. Example– if you live in London, essentially you’ll only be competing in a pool of entrants from the UK.
Each manicure you complete will earn you one raffle entry, but make sure to enter the raffle for your part of the world!! Since there will be 5 raffles going on, it’s important to click the one for the area you live in. Each raffle will be clearly marked on our reference page. Here’s what we’re giving away-
USA Prize- 7 AVON polishes, 4 OPI Hawaii polishes, Green Tea Body Care Trio, Footworks Lotion, Incoco Nail Strips

The challenge starts on July 1st 2015. The inlinkz and raffles open up on that day. The last daily prompt is July 31st, yet we will keep the challenge open until August 5th. We’re giving everyone an extra 5 days in case there’s a few prompts you missed and need some time to catch up. The 5 winners will be chosen on August 7th 2015 and will be notified via email.
DOS AND DONTS-
- DO check our OMD3 Reference Page on July 1st which will have all the upcoming inlinkz codes & raffles so you can enter your first manicure.
- DO spread the word by sharing our infographics on your online accounts.
- DO get creative with your nail art! Anything goes- acrylic paints, stickers, stamping, glitter, etc.
- DON’T just do a swatch. Sorry, but just painting your nails one color doesn’t count. You must add another element like some nail art, an accent nail, a glitter topper, studs or stickers, etc. to qualify.
- DO use hashtag #omd3nails in your social media accounts.
- DO join in even if you find out about OMD3 in the middle of the month. If you join late you can start on that corresponding day’s prompt, or you can start at the beginning if you’d like.
- DO only one manicure per prompt. If you love the color TEAL you aren’t allowed to do 3 teal entries that day to earn 3 raffles. You can only earn a maximum of one raffle per daily prompt.
- DON’T feel like you can only join if you have a blog. We encourage everyone with a social media account to enter (instagram, facebook, tumblr, etc.) But please make sure your profile is open so everyone can see your nail pics. If your photo link is broken or won’t display then your entry will be removed.
- DON’T cheat! We will verify all raffle entries, so don’t even try! All raffle entries will be verified and bad inlinkz entries will be deleted.
- DON’T recycle old manicures. Old nail art designs will be disqualified. You must enter brand new manis (specifically designed for our challenge) to earn a raffle.
And lastly, DO contact any of us if you have questions! You can check out last year’s gallery of designs here. We had over 2000 entries last year. We’re happy to say that we have fresh new prompts and even more prizes this year! We really hope you join us. Oh mon dieu, this will be fun!
