Good morning everyone! I cannot believe that today marks one year since my first manicure post. It was Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar – and what a manicure it was! ROFL. I can’t believe how much better I’ve gotten not just at doing my nails, but doing nail art and expressing myself. I’m also just short of 400 posts in this year – phew!
I also can’t let this celebration be marked without giving a huge shout-out to some awesome ladies that I’ve met through blogging: Dani at From Polish with Love, Hannah at The Dalai Lama’s Nails, Cynthia at Of Life and Lacquer, Kirby at The Mercurial Magpie, Steph at Imperfectly Painted, Lacey at My Boyfriend Hates Makeup, Autumn at AuttyW, Lisa at The Polish Playground, The Sparkle Queen, and honestly, so many more lovely people that I’ve met through this blog. Not to mention the talented people who make nail polishes whom I’ve had the real pleasure to meet through this blog. I really do appreciate everyone that comments here on the blog, or on instagram, or elsewhere. I sometimes can’t believe that people actually come to read and see what I’ve created or swatched!
To help me celebrate, four amazing makers that I’ve worked with over the year have each sponsored a prize. Click through after the giveaway graphic to learn more!
Laura at ellagee has generously sponsored a prize of a polish keychain, a polish from the new collaboration release with You Polish, and a glass file.
Mentality Nail Polish has generously sponsored a $25 gift certificate to their shop:
Lauren at You Polish has generously sponsored a $15 gift certificate to her shop:
I’m also sponsoring 6 prizes: 1 each of OPI mini nail polish packs, and an OPI prize of 5 full bottles. Mini polish sets are: 2 OPI Oz the Great and Powerful sets, 1 San Francisco set, 1 Mariah Carey set (liquid sand trio), and 1 Mariah Carey set (4 pack). OPI full size prize set consists of: Glints of Glinda, Schnapps Out of It, What Wizardry Is This? (liquid sand), Don’t Burst My Bubble, and It’s All San Andreas’ Fault (liquid sand).

This new kind of entry will be worth 10 entry points every day. There will be a code word in every post of mine from now until the giveaway ends. I will not announce the code word, but it will be in bold. (Have you found today’s?)
