*CLOSED* China Glaze Winter Giveaway-For You And A Friend!

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Good day, folks!
This is a lengthy post, but I swear it has a point. I recently have gained a lot of followers and I wanted to celebrate that and thank all of you by having a winter giveaway.

About eight months ago, roughly when I stopped blogging for a while, I was in a really crappy situation in my life. At that point, I wasn't buying much makeup because when times are tough, simple things like a new polish are luxuries that are the first to go. A friend of mine send me a package with a few things that I would have in no way bought for myself. I was deeply touched. I started bawling my eyes out when I opened it up. 
It wasn't about the cosmetics I was given (though can anyone not be thrilled with new makeup?) it was about the fact that someone cared enough and was so kind and generous at a really shitty part of my life. I don't know if you've ever been in a situation like that, but it's so uplifting knowing that someone wants you to have something nice for you to enjoy, just because. 

So, back to this giveaway. I know many of you don't celebrate the holidays, you might not do the whole present exchanging thing, but there's no reason why I can't give you a present, from me to you just because I think that you deserve one. 
While we're at it, I want to give YOU something to give away to someone else. So ONE winner from this giveaway will win TWO sets of 7 polishes. 

-They're packaged in two separate packages- one called Winter Ice with the polishes Snow Globe, Blue Year's Eve, Tinsel Town and Icicle as well as a snowflake charm necklace, the other set called Seasonal Sparkles with the polishes Poinsettia, Twinkle Lights and Holly-Day. (Click HERE to see Scrangie's swatches of all the polishes)

You get 7 polishes to enjoy. You get to give the second set of 7 polishes to anyone you like. A mother, a daughter, a friend, a coworker, maybe a blogger you thought would really enjoy these polishes. You can even divide the second set up and give it to multiple people. It doesn't matter to me. Just give it away and possibly make someone else's day. 

(Of course, you could sell the second set... but that would really bum me out and completely defeat the whole point of a giveaway that kept giving.)

To Enter:
-Be a GFC follower and leave a comment on this page WITH YOUR GFC NAME, with your email or some other way to contact you such as a Twitter page. Tell me about someone in your life that you'd like to give the second set to. 
For example:  "My friend just started getting into nail polishes, and I'd love to surprise her with a bunch of new holiday colors."

This giveaway will end on November 30th, at 10PM Central time. I will select one winner using Random.org. This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada residents only (sorry international people! I hope next time, I'll be able to include you too) and for those age 18 and older. The winner has 72 hours to respond to me once I've emailed them and announced it, before I pick another winner. You may email me your entry, if you'd prefer. I will package the prize to the best of my ability and use tracking within the US, but once the post office has it, it's out of my hands. I reserve to right to disqualify any entries that are ineligible  incomplete or spam.

Last, but important tidbit:
Sometimes my commenting platform, DISQUS craps out. If that's the case, and you just see the default Blogger comment form, don't worry. I'll still see it, and I'll tally those manually and copy and past the entry into DISQUS when it goes back up again. 

Whew. Sorry for that ridiculously long post. 

Good luck, thanks for entering!

To my makeup fairy godmother, my deepest thanks.

Products in this giveaway were purchased by me, for the sole intention of giving them away. For additional information, please refer to my Disclosure Policy.
