Giveaway Time!! :D

Good and wonderful morning, dear readers!!! :D

As of yesterday, my little blog has reached 350+ followers and 100 000 page views!! :'D WOW!!! :'D

I really can't thank you all enough for your support, suggestions, and all around awesomeness.  :D

So, to mark this momentous occasion, I am holding a small giveaway!  (Unfortunately due to shipping concerns this giveaway is only available to those in the continental United States and Canada :().

So here is the prize!


One bottle of each:

Nubar - Diamont Seal & Shine Topcoat
Nubar - White Polka Dot
Nubar - Black Polka Dot
Revlon - Stunning
Color Club - Diamond Drops
Essie - As Gold as it Gets

This contest starts now, and will run until August 5th (my birthday! :D).  New followers welcome!

Since there have been some problems with Rafflecopter for some people, I am going to do this the hard way, and draw the winning name from a hat (or bowl XD).

Here is how you can enter:

1. Be a follower and leave your GFC name in a post comment. :D

For added entries:

1. In the same post comment, let me know any suggestions you have about my blog! :D
2. Share the giveaway somewhere and leave a link in the same post comment. :D

To the entrants:
As I don't want to make you put your e-mail out for everyone to see it, please check on my blog on August 5th 2012 for the winner!  I will post the winners name and give the winner 48 hours to contact me.  If when 48 hours have passed and I have not heard from the winner either by e-mail or by reply on the blog post, I will choose another winner.

(Please note that while I will keep a receipt of my sending out the package, customs can stop packages at any time, and I will not be held responsible if that happens.  :(  I will mark the package as 'cosmetics'. :D)

Good luck and thank you all so incredibly much.  You are all so freaking awesome!!!!!! :'D  Thank you, thank you!!! :'D

-Ashesela

(P.S., All of the bottles are new and unused, but for some reason the plastic label on the Essie polish is curling at the bottom :s).

    As far as suggestions, your blog's pretty great and the only thing I would think of to change is the home page...instead of being able to read the whole post, maybe just have a part of it available on the home page? Honestly that's not even a big deal lol.
    And I shared your giveaway. :) Link: https://twitter.com/lacquerobsessed/status/215459165689225217

    I love seeing swatches of polishes, so more of those would be great! Love your nail art as well.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Congrats!! :) my GFC: deja vu (amrpr2010 at gmail dot com is the email). As for suggestions: I love the art so keep it up but I would like to see more comparisons. Or maybe not even necessarily comparisons, but if you know of or have heard of a similar polish I always enjoy finding that kind of stuff out. So, you could just tack it on to a swatch post (which I also love btw).

  24. Hello and congrats! I've been a lurker on your blog for a while a now, but finally became a follower (it was time!) Anyway! If I were to give you a suggestion it would be, maybe do some dupe comparisons. Not everyone has access to OPI or China Glaze, and it would be cool to see what cheaper brands look like the more expensive brands.
    Oh and it turns out we have the same birthday :D Congrats again!

  25. GFC = Ro
    And my only suggestion for any blogger (assuming they're already at a level of competence that I enjoy reading them enough that I subscribed to them) is to be true to yourself. Don't add stuff to your blog just because your readers want to see it, if you're not honestly interested in it. Don't take out stuff that you enjoy doing & writing about just because you think people won't be interested. The more passionate you are about what you're doing, the more interesting it will be to the people who are reading...and *your* own viewpoint and *your* own interests are what make *your* blog different from the other 200 nail blogs I read. :)
