Nail Polish Canada's Great Polish Giveaway 2014 -- the winner!!

So yeah, it's ME! For reals, how crazy is that?! I found out yesterday but I waited until they announced it officially today before saying anything (SO hard for me to keep a secret! I get all squirmy/wiggly). They sent me the email yesterday evening and I had to read it over about 600x before believing it. My head was spinning and I was shaking and dizzy! I was fumbling with a pen to do a simple skill-testing question! LOL

I am SUPER grateful and excited!! Thank you to Nail Polish Canada and all the bloggers who selected their favourites and posted the widget so I could enter (I didn't enter ALL of them, maybe half?). I am also grateful and thankful to the contest sponsors: Cirque ColorsNCLA, and piCture pOlish.

They told me it would take a few weeks to get everything packed up and shipped out -- I promise to do an update post with tons of pictures when my prize arrives.

What did I win?? 200 bottles of polish! Want to know which ones I won? You can click here to go to the prize page and scroll through them.

I also urge you to check out the bloggers who contributed polishes (on the prize page, each polish has the name of the blogger) -- there are so many talented nail and beauty bloggers out there! Also check out the sponsor pages and Nail Polish Canada -- they have some really great things going on. These are brands I already use (and have reviewed!) and love! I also order from NPC all the time -- they are the best!

Everyone is asking me what I plan to do with duplicate polishes (ie. the ones I already own). I haven't decided -- I'm still trying to wrap my head around this! I will not sell them, I'm not comfortable with that at all. I will have to wait until the polishes arrive then sit down and sort/organize them all (oh no, I need to get more storage boxes, order swatch sticks and label tape!)… I will give some to my family (my sisters, mom and niece love polish too!). The remainder I will most likely do RAOKs (Random Acts of Kindness). But I can already feel people's expectations and it's making me VERY uncomfortable. :(

Want to know a funny thing? Almost an irony?? My very first order from Nail Polish Canada was almost exactly a year ago -- August 29, 2013! I had just started getting heavily into polish at the time. What a nice anniversary gift!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

  1. SO EXCITING. Please don't feel any pressure about doubles, obviously you're not going to sell as you said but what you do with the polish is up to you. I hope you enjoy Zoya Carter-- that's the one I picked out :)

  2. Holy Cannoli! Good for you! If there are duplicates that you actually use, it's great to have a backup! Good luck finding where to put them, haha.

    1. Thank you!! And yes, there are dupes that I love and use so I will keep them as backups. Does that make me selfish? :/ I keep my polish in decorative boxes (Paris-themed, of course), I'll have to go pick up a few more! Not sure where to put them though. :)
