Man. As much as 2016 sucked in general, I had a pretty kickass year as a blogger. Well, and a nail polish hoarder. I won quite a bit (lolIhaveahelmerfullofuntriedssendhelp), got to go to a huge indie nail polish convention, and I had the chance to work with some amazing brands for collaborations that mean the absolute world to me. I’ve also had the chance to meet some wonderful makers and become friends with them. I’m one lucky gal, y’all.
So, since my 2016 was neato polish-wise, I wanted to host a giveaway of my own to start off 2017 and hopefully make somebody’s day, just as the indie world has done for me, over and over.
I’m so excited for this, you guys. These are six makers that I adore both as artists and humans. I’m beyond blessed to have them in my life, trufax.
Ready to see what you can win? There’s 17 goodies that’ll be coming straight from me, and then an extra something from one of the brands. EEEEEEEE! Be sure to read all the way to the end to find out how to enter, too!
Posh Paints Nail Lacquer – Beware of the Plastics full collection. I mean, who doesn’t love Mean Girls? I have the hardest time sitting through any movie, but this is one that I’ve seen more times than I care to admit. I haven’t swatched this collection just yet, but I love all of Courtney’s polishes. Hard. (and her, especially when she gets sassy and lovey after a few drinks, hah!) I’ve got a review or two here and here if you’d like to see what other fantastic things she’s made!
Night Owl Lacquer – Autumn Winds, Bitch, I’m a Unicorn!, and Meet Me Under The Mistletoe. Y’all ought to know how much I love Lindsay and NOL. She launched earlier this year and keeps pumping out collection after collection and they’re all effin’ stunning. She’s a blast, though, and a total pleasure to speak with. I love her something fierce. I had the chance to choose the three for the giveaway, so I picked my favorites so far. Lindsay is also including a $10 gift code for her shop for the winner. How friggen sweet of her?! If you feel ever so inclined to do so, you can check out my posts on NOL here!
Pretty & Polished – 4 polishes from the Winter 2016 Collection. Oh, look, another brand that I love. I first had the chance to try out Pretty & Polished last year around my birthday, and I quickly fell in love. After meeting Chelsea at Polish Con in September, I knew I’d be a fan for the rest of FOR. EV. ER. For the winner, Chelsea sent over the 3 multichromes from the Winter collection as well as a beautiful crelly named Blue Balls. I’ve swatched a few from the 12 that were released just a few weeks ago, if you wanna see my talons sporting multichrome goodness, here’s the post!
Great Lakes Lacquer – Winter Solstice Sunrise and Love at Loyola. I fail. Hard. Great Lakes Lacquer has somewhat taken over my collection (and I ain’t fighting it one damn bit), but I only have ONE post of Mariah’s polishes on my blog so far. I still have what I bought at Polish Con sitting in my bag, just to the right of my desk. Can’t wait to get into them for y’all to see. She’s a wizard with flakies and holo and shimmer and all the things. For the giveaway, Mariah sent December’s POTM and Love at Loyola (which was her exclusive for the Polish Con VIP bag!) and y’all are going to love them. Now if only we could have found a way for her to include one of her heart-warming hugs. Sorry, you’re gonna have to track her down for one of those.
Le Polish – Pinestraw Cheer. Remember the collabs that I mentioned at the beginning of this post? THIS IS ONE OF THEM! I had the chance to team up with Allison for her 12 Days of Polish series, and together we created Pinestraw Cheer. She took the photo that I sent her and ran with it and created something absolutely beautiful. In addition to the bottle that she sent me to swatch, she sent one of the giveaway. I’m so excited to see this on folks, especially since it’s something that I helped with. Frig. It’s lovely!
Heather’s Hues – Winner’s choice for one nail polish and one 5mL Cutie-cle balm! I’m ashamed to admit that my two HH’s polishes are sitting in my untried, but they’ll be shared soon! They’re so pretty, I don’t know how I’ve resisted so far! I first spoke with Heather in the spring about testing her Cutie-cle oils. I fell in love, fast. They helped so incredibly much, and I was totally psyched when she came out with a cuticle balm (which I’ve since tried and LOVE!). We also worked together to create two customs for a swap that I was in. My swap girl totally loved them, I’m so happy with what Heather came up with! I can’t wait to see what polish and scent the winner picks, HNNNNG.
Ahhh, and that wraps it up! I’m beyond excited to get this started, and I can’t wait to see who wins! Are there any brands here that you’ve not checked out yet? What would you choose from Heather’s Hues? What’s your favorite polish in this giveaway?
Good luck to all those that enter! <3
