Announcing: March Madness Tournament + Giveaway!

 March Madness has begun in the world of college basketball, with the first group of teams from the top 64 in the country taking the court tomorrow.

As many of you know, I'm a HUGE sports fan so this event could not go unnoticed on my blog. So tomorrow is going to kick off Princess Polish's own March Madness tournament!

Here is how it is going to work:

Similar to NCAA March Madness, the nail polish tournament starts off with 64 contestants. Each contestant is a shade of polish representing the color(s) of a college in the NCAA contest. The bracket matches up these teams according to the actual matchups for the first round of 64, 8 matchups for each division of the country (North, South, East, and West).

Every day will feature a regional tournament in which you will vote for your favorites. The top 64 will run and March 15 will be the South, March 16 the North, March 17th the East, March 18th the west. The top 32 starts on March 19 with the South again and so on. As polishes are eliminated, the field will narrow and the voting will continue until we have a winning polish.

For example, the first round of competition in the south has South Dakota State/OPI Catch Me in Your Net taking on Baylor/Zoya Yara. The winner will move on to face the winner of Colorado/Wet n Wild Gray's Anatomy v. UNLV/Color Club After Hours in the Top 32.

And just like in the NCAA tournament, there are the favored powerhouses (like the designer brands of OPI, Essie, China Glaze, etc) and the underdogs with the potential to bust the bracket (like Cult Nails, Wet n Wild, Revlon,etc.).

Now here is the fun part! Whichever polish is crowned the champion will be the grand prize for the giveaway, with the runner up polish as the second prize. Since you're in control of what polish ends up as top dog, make sure to vote for your favorites and get the word out! This part of the giveaway will run for a week and then be chosen by

So stay tuned for tomorrow's post and get ready for March Madness!
