Need a little incentive to freshen up your go-to mani? Well, how about $2,000 worth of beauty swag. No, that's not a typo — that's really the prize for our Instagram photo contest with Regency Beauty Institute.
When we launched our Instagram challenge a couple weeks ago, we knew we were going to get insanely cool snaps. And, after seeing tons of painted pouts and modern-day pompadours we just know you're going to nail this next trend: the watercolor manicure. Check out how our expert pulled off this summer-perfect nail art, and then show us your version for a chance to win a $1,000 Sephora gift card and the $1,000 VIP Beauty Treatment — a luxe package that includes a mani/pedi, blowout, facial, makeover, and some serious spa time.
So, think you've got what it takes? Then pick up that polish and tag your look #ShareBeautyContest on Instagram. Oh, and don't forget to scope out the rest of the competition over here — it's time to bring it.
