100 Follower Giveaway!

Hello!

I can't believe I'm already at 100 followers! That means it's time for a giveaway to say thank you to everyone who reads and supports my blog. I appreciate the time that you take to look over my silly ramblings and crazy designs. :)

I haven't done this before, and I don't have a sponsor, so I'm going to have to keep this small and simple. Here is what I'm going to do. First of all, the prize! The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to EITHER:



www.ninjapolish.com

OR to shop.llarowe.com. 


shop.llarowe.com

Second, here's how you enter. on July 31st, 2012, I will draw a name from the list of entries. Anyone who is a member of my blog by that day, July 31st, will get one entry into the drawing. Also, anyone who leaves a comment in response to this post saying what they like about the blog (or what else they'd like to see, or what they'd like to see more of) will get an entry in the drawing. If you are a follower of the blog AND leave a comment, you will get two entries. 


I chose these two companies because they both ship internationally, with reasonable rates, so this contest is open to anyone who feels they can use this gift certificate.


Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks so much for supporting my blog!!!!!

  2. Thanks for running a giveaway. I read your blog a lot, but I officially started following it through Blogger today. My favorite part of your blog is when you do a Before and After--this way we get to see swatches and nail art in one post.

    1. Awww! That is so sweet of you to say! *blushes* I'm glad you like the comparisons!! :)

  4. Congrats! I just hit that mark as well and it feels really cool, doesn't it? I would love to see more comparison "dupe or no dupe" posts. I love those because I often wonder if I really need two colors that are pretty close to the same thing. Thanks and Congratulations again!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I can't believe I hit 100. I remember when I first started and would tell myself every day 'oh well, it doesn't matter if anyone ever follows, right, it's for the fun of it!' But of course when I started getting followers I was over the moon. :) And thanks for the feedback!

  5. Congrats on 100 followers! I'm surprised it's not way more! I love your blog, I love your nails, too! I love how well you explain what you do and the "before and after" is one of my faves! :) Thanks so much for the giveaway! I'll keep following as long as you post! Hehe

    1. You get extra hugs, does that count? Okay, I'll work on the videos...I have a love-hate relationship with them. I'll also do a post on my cuticle care, but I don't do much so I hope it won't be disappointing! :)

  44. Althought I'm a new follower it's not my first time here, I follow your Summer Challenge participations from the fb group, and what I like most of your blog is that you are an artist combinating colours! I would like to see more stamping because the manicure that I like most is the one with the kittens. <3
