Happy 2013 Giveaway! Featuring Lynnderella’s Snow Angel!

Happy 2013 Giveaway - With a brand new Lynnderella - Snow Angel

I know everyone wants Lynnderella’s Snow Angel, and even if you already have it, they are selling for a ton on eBay! So I thought it’d be exciting to feature that in my giveaway, since I have a brand new, unswatched, big round bottle of it!

I want to pick 3 winners again. So I’ll ask you what your favorite items are from these, and the grand prize winner will get 4, including Snow Angel! The 2nd place winner will get another 4 polishes, and the 3rd will get 3. Every time I’ve done it this way, I’ve been able to give everyone some polishes that they wanted most, so it was pretty fun!

Here is the list of the polishes in the giveaway! Click if you’d like to see google images swatches for each.

To enter, you can do one of two things, or both for an extra entry!

Party Hearty

I finally unpacked my nail polish and found my China Glaze Party Hearty, just in time for our work Christmas party. It was awesome, they had it at a nice hotel, bought us and our dates food, drinks, and even cab vouchers!

Anyway, I had to swatch with my right hand for once since my left hand still has a short ugly nail that needs to grow.

I started with OPI Germanicure to have a darker base, then covered it with China Glaze Ruby Pumps! I left my toes like that, but on my nails, I added a layer of Party Hearty. 🙂

I also got a cool set together for my next giveaway! It will include China Glaze, Essie, Nubar, Color Club, Milani, Duri, Del Sol, Nox Twilight, and even a Lynnderella!

Yep, I’m going to giveaway this sweet thing – A new, unused, unswatched, virgin Snow Angel!

Spring Giveaway Winners and Wedding Dress Pictures!

First, let’s get to the winners, since I’ve made you wait long enough!

Winner #1 – Patricia
She will get 4 that she listed as her favorite picks and the awesome blue glow polish!

Winner #2 – Eugenia
She will get 3 that she listed as her favorite picks!

Winner #3 – Melita
She will get 2 from her favorite picks and 1 from the favorite picks of the other winners that I hope she will love. 🙂

Go ahead and send me your address, girls! I have these ready to send out, so you will get them pretty quickly. Sorry again for the delay, can’t say that enough…

Melita asked to see a picture of me in my whole wedding dress, and I was like yay, I thought you would never ask! haha

It felt so huge and heavy but it was a gorgeous dress that I fell in love with the first day I went looking. And I had a corset back put in!

Somehow, when it was time for our dance, we didn’t have much trouble with the huge dress and were able to still do this…

The one of me with my bridesmaids kind of shows off the top beading more… and by the way, I’m so lucky to have best friends like these!

What a happy post this was! hee hee

Spring Giveaway!

That pretty glowing one there at the top is from Night Reflections! Its the clear with glitter that glows Aqua in the dark! Fresh from their shop. Since I have my polishes up on a rack, I can see this one glowing twice as much as my others, even the OPI and China Glaze polishes I have that are glow in the dark! The first winner will get that plus 4 of the others.

I want to pick 3 winners again. So I’ll ask you what your favorite items are from the rest of them, and the first winner will get 4! The next two will get 3 each. Last time I was able to give everyone something they wanted, so it was pretty fun!

Left to Right: Sally Hansen – Ice, AQumore – P039, LA Girls – Enchanting, NYX – Perfect Gray, Sinful Colors – Easy Going, NYX – Dreamy Glitter, Essence – King of Mints, Revlon – Starry Pink (aka Popular), FingerPaints – Gossamer White, and a limited edition tinted SoftLips SPF 15 in pearl (never opened, of course)!

The difference now is… I have no more Google Friend Connect. So there went my followers and my method of doing giveaways. (Until we figure out the best new way, that is!)

So this time, to enter, you can do one of two things, or both for an extra entry!

1. Use the giveaway picture and post/blog about this somewhere, put the URL to your post into the form
(The link to the giveaway is -> http://shimmerspark.com/posts/spring-giveaway-2012)

2. Become a follower in another type of network and comment to tell me your username on that network

(Just go on my sidebar over to the right and pick from Google+ Circles, HelloCotton, Bloglovin, Networked Blogs, or LinkyFollowers. Become a follower and post a comment to this entry to let me know what your username is for what network. If you have trouble with the new comments system, please email me or send a facebook message/wall post!)

I’ll close this one before my wedding, so I’ll go with May 18th!

As always, thank you again so much for reading my blog! I love giving you guys presents so I can do more than just say thank you!

GOSH – Purple Heart

I love these oil slick nail polishes. This one is called Purple Heart.

purpleheart

It has a nice powdery dark plum color on the nail, but in the bottle, it really shifts from purple, to green, to a whole oil slick palette on the outsides. See?

I want to do another giveaway soon! I thought it was really fun to choose 2 winners and send them something they chose out of a list so I know that they’ll be loving what they get. I think I’ll get a few really good ones together and ask you what your favorites are… then pick 2 winners and do my best to send them most of the ones they listed. I have 299 followers, so a 300 followers giveaway will be a good reason to have one! 🙂

I just saw this post and oh holy crap, my trying not to buy more polish plan is going to go right down the toilet. I have to have Chanel April, and China Glaze Magnetix!!!!

Also, I’d just like to say that I officially like the Harmony Gelish hybrid gel system more than the CND Shellac! It just works so much better for me in terms of how long it lasts and how well it seals around the edges.

That is all!
