3 Year Blogaversary Giveaway!

Giveaway time!


On June 26th, 2010, I posted my very first blog post. It was a nail art post and honestly, the art itself wasn't too bad! I've definitely seen worse from myself. It was a basic splatter design with some polka dots. The lighting, background and pretty much everything else about the photo were terrible, though. But it's so fun to look back and see how far I've come!


Obviously I'm where I am today because of you guys. If it wasn't for your continued support and encouragement, I not only wouldn't have stuck with blogging, but I certainly wouldn't have started a career in the nail industry. So as corny as it sounds, this blog has truly changed my life.

I wanted to do something extra special as a thank you to you guys, so I teamed up with Christy from KBShimmer and created a custom, limited edition nail polish. I showed you many pictures and swatches of it yesterday in this post, so be sure to check that out if you missed it. And in today's post I'll be giving away four bottles of my polish Green Hex & Glam! There were only six bottles of this made (I have two myself), so it's a pretty limited edition polish!



You can enter to win one of the four polishes by filling out the Rafflecopter form below. There are many different ways to enter the giveaway, so choose whatever options work best for you. The boring (albeit necessary) rules for the giveaway can be found below in the "Terms and Conditions" section of the Rafflecopter form.

Good luck!

Edit: A few of you have been wondering if this polish will be sold in the KBShimmer store and at this moment, there are no plans for that. I'd love it if Christy wanted to sell something that I had a part in creating, but ultimately that's up to her. So as of right now, there is only six of these polishes in existence!

  113. Congrats on 3 years in blogging! Your blog is sure one of my favorite ones, and the prize you've created is just astonishing, fingers crossed I win one, I'm just head over heels about it :) I also wish Christy would sell it, since I would definitely need a backup if I ended up winning one, but I would be willing to pay for 2 bottles of this awesomesauce if it came down to it. Also, thank you so much for making this giveaway international, because seriously it would've killed me to see it limited to US and Canada (and this just keeps happening). Again, congrats and many years to come!
