Giveaway Time!

 Giveaway is now CLOSED.  Thank you for entering! :)

  I have had these sitting around for awhile, and I was originally planning on waiting until 150 followers to start up this giveaway.  But... I figure I am close enough. :)  I couldn't wait any longer to do this to thank all of you who visit and comment, I am coming to really enjoy this community!  One lucky winner will receive these two sets.

Polishology's Second Giveaway Prizes

  Included is LA Colors Color Craze Metallics LE Series, which I have swatched and reviewed HERE.  This set includes four shiny metallic polishes in magenta, deep purple, green and steel gray.

LA Color Craze Metallics
  Also included is the ULTAProfessionals Cocktail Hour Minis set, which includes five fabulously shimmery polishes, perfect for fall and for the holidays!  These include Raspberry Mojito, Cranberry Mojito, Sangria, Blue Kamikaze, and Black Russian.

ULTA Professionals Cocktail Hour Minis

  This giveaway will run until 11:59 pm, Central Time, on Friday November 5th.  I am giving you all a LOT of extra entry options in this one!  Please try to submit all of your entries in one post, it is really helpful!  Here is the entry form!

2) Blog about this giveaway, either in a post, on your sidebar or on a separate giveaway section (1 entry).  If you include a picture, this is worth an additional entry (2 entries total).  Please leave the link where you blogged, and mention if you used a picture.

6) Please tell me what you would like to see me do with this blog in the future.  This may include things like more or less: nail art, swatches, comparisons, personal narrative, posting frequency, brands of polish/types of polish covered, tutorials, pictures of my kitties (haha, of course everyone wants more of those!) etc.  Basically, tell me where you would like to see this blog go in the future.  What will make you enjoy it more?  I want to make sure it is both fun for me as well as my readers, so I would love your feedback!  This is worth 3 entries.  I really want to encourage this one, because I want your help making Polishology great!

  That is a grand total of 9 possible entries.  Please make sure to leave your e-mail address for me, or I will not be able to contact you if you win!  The winner will be chosen shortly after the November 5th deadline by Random.org, in the same manner as the last giveaway.  The winner will be notified by e-mail and given 72 hours to respond; if I do not hear back from them a new winner will be chosen.

    I think nail art can be tacky or it can be gorgeous. At what point do you think it gets tacky? Is it a certain style, certain colours or the nail itself??? I love my nails but sometimes I think it might be too much or maybeeee it's not enough. I have no idea!
