I can't get your contest machine to take my entry. It says I "need to subscribe to updates to enter." I subcribed to your newsletter. There is no place to check that on the contest machine.

Would love a polish that is chip-resistant. I feel like this might actually help my daughter and I, get past the two-day period.
