!Feliz día de los muertos! Happy day of the dead! How are you celebrating life today?

In honor of the holiday and remembering those who we’ve lost, I’ve created this manicure.

The Grand Prize Winning Manicure

Last month, I mentioned the possibility of going to New York because of a manicure I executed.

Turns out, it’s happening! My nail art helped me win an all-paid trip to the Big Apple (insert happy dance here).

In September, as I got ready to visit San Francisco to attend Sensation’s “Ocean of White” event, I entered the production company’s contest on Vine.

Sensation took to the bite-size video sharing platform to promote a contest challenging fans to share a creative video that included music or dancing.

My grand prize includes round-trip airfare, a two-night hotel stay and two tickets to Sensation’s 100th show taking place on October 26 at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn.

It’s going to be one heck of a party!

Here’s my video entry:

I was notified earlier this week that I won the grand prize.


I am incredibly humbled and so thankful for this generous opportunity.  Thank you, Sensation and Golden Voice!

Here’s a photo of the grand prize winning manicure.

Sensation Ocean of White Inspired Nails

My nail art might just help me visit New York for the first time.

For the last few months I have eagerly waited for this weekend to arrive. On Saturday night, I will be a guest of Sensation’s “The Ocean of White” event in San Francisco. The production company from Amsterdam is touring the U.S. for the first time.

Sensation took to Vine to promote a contest challenging fans to share a creative video that included music or dancing to win a trip to their party in New York.

On Friday the 13th, I decided to try my luck.

I went ahead and recorded a time lapse video of a manicure inspired by the event’s all white theme and added their logo as an accent. This is my video entry.

The video got revined by Sensation’s official Vine account! I think that means they liked my entry, right? The winner of the contest hasn’t been selected. Please send me good vibes!


Sensation USA is hosting a contest. I think this is a sign they liked my entry.

Here is the final nail art design.


I am ready to dive into the Ocean of White in Oakland!

Let’s see what happens! I will make sure to update in case of any news.

Steve Aoki Nail Art

If you follow Steve Aoki on Vine, then on Monday, you too were bombarded with bite-size loops of his single, “Boneless.” The beat is still stuck in my head.

The EDM giant took to the six-second video sharing platform to connect with his fans.

He revined dozens of posts with the hashtag #steveaoki. I decided to try my luck and join in on the fun.

My approach was to get his attention with a Steve Aoki inspired manicure.

The manicure is a sunset gradient with a white accent nail. On the index and ring finger, I painted a palm tree. The idea came from his album cover. I painted the superstar DJ’s signature logo on the accent nail with the white polish.

Here’s hoping the face of Dim Mak sees and maybe even revines my Aokified nail art!


Hundreds of people on Vine tried to get Steve Aoki’s attention. This was my approach.
