Today we have something a little different for you. We were overjoyed to be invited to be part of #1234thumbwar, a new campaign being run by Models Own. The campaign is aimed to inspire beauty fans to engage their inner artists - something we're always happy to get behind. After all, we only started this blog after being inspired by other great artists! 

The campaign, was aptly kicked off on Instagram at 12:34 today, when Models Own uploaded the image below. The aim of the campaign is for Models Own fans to create their own nail art inspired by this image. In doing so you're entered into a competition to win an awesome Models Own prize! 
We were asked to put together a design in advance to illustrate what sort of thing could be done, and hopefully further inspire their followers (and our own - yes we're looking at you!) to give it a go. Our design started with a base of super bright Sarong Wrap* from the Polish for Tans collection. We then added a black chevron inspired by the models hair, and added multicoloured dots to reflect all the bright colours in the image. The dots are - Turquoise Sea*, Sun Hat*, Beach Hut*, Lilac Sheen and Green Fields*. We felt it was missing something so added a bit of Gold Finger glitter to complete the slightly insane look! Not our usual style but it was great fun to challenge ourselves to create something a bit different. 

The campaign will run to the end of the month when a winner will be picked. There's £150 worth of goodies up for grabs so it's definitely worth a shot! Also, Models Own will be sharing some of their favourite images throughout the month so it's a great way to get your nail art out there. 
To enter the competition all you need to do is create a design, inspired by the image, and upload it to Instagram with the tag #1234thumbwar, simples! If you enter please also tag us in your post as we love to check out our followers designs. See the Models Own insta page for more details just in case we've missed anything!

The campaign will be running every month with a different inspirational image so if you don't win this time round you can have another go!
