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 Colors, NCLA, 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!
