We're four days into the 12 Days of Giveaways...are you pumped yet? I know I am! In today's giveaway, three people will win a stamping bundle from Vivid Lacquer. Each bundle will include plates VL006, VL009, & VL010, plus your choice of stamper (choose between harder or softer rubber). I can personally attest to the high quality of these plates, and I love the unique and creative designs that Vivid Lacquer comes up with! That fake "OPI Spotted" style image from VL009 is particularly brilliant, I think.
It's day three of the 12 Days of Giveaways and I have an opportunity for you to win some polishes from one of my favorite indie brands: Cirque! One lucky winner will get to enjoy the full ten piece Alchemy Collection, compliments of Cirque. Look at those gorgeous polishes! Such a wonderful blend of shimmers, glitters, holos, glass flecks... what more could a polish lover ask for?
I haven't swatched these just yet, but I DO have them in my possession and I can tell you they are divine. Look out for a swatch post soon, but for now just trust me -- you want these babies. Read on and enter to win!
This holiday season, three indie polish makers have teamed up to create a limited edition holiday trio celebrating the three types of polishes that they each do best. Lacquer Lust has contributed a gorgeous holographic polish, Polished by KPT created a shimmering thermal, and Serum No. 5 came in strong with a glow in the dark! I think this is such a fun idea and a great collaboration.
Today is my 25th birthday! This is the third birthday that I've celebrated on this blog (check out 2012 and 2011). I only got around to changing my polish around 11pm, so I was just going to put on some blingy glitter or something, but then I got this craving for a gradient and couldn't resist. Of course, I had to put a black and white glitter on top because UM HELLO black and white glitter is one of my favorite things!
It's day two of the 12 Days of Giveaways and today I'm giving away the chance to experience some DIY fun! I enjoy making nail polish jewelry (and have been doing it for quite some time!). I wrote a tutorial for DIY polish jewelry waaay back in January 2012, and Rebecca Likes Nails published a great tutorial too.
One great thing about polish jewelry is that you can trap your favorite polishes and keep a bit of them forever. I made a pair of earrings with my beloved Clarins 230, so even if I finish the bottle, I'll still have those earrings! You can also get creative with layerings, or nail art, or just go crazy blingy and add sparkle to your outfits.
