Christmasy Swatches

After going through all of my posts to update links for my new server, I kept my favorite Christmasy swatches aside to put in one entry. 🙂

I might as well try the cool WordPress “Gallery in a post” feature!

My nails are missing out on the Holidays!

As soon as I think I’m ready to try some new polish, I unpack some more and break another nail, then file them all down again.

So I still have naked nails and my blog hasn’t had anything worth posting about.  *sniffle*

Our move was such a huge one that I think I’ll be unpacking, organizing, replacing and cleaning for weeks.  I might as well at least post a cute set I saw come out for the Holidays!

Anna Sui’s bottles are always so cute, but these really blew the other bottle styles away.  I guess the easiest place to get them is -> here, on the Urban Outfitters site?

I wonder if they still smell like roses?

I still have had NO luck finding the Pure Ice – Pardon My French!  I went to our brand new fully stocked Walmart, and found no new display with those in it.  I went to a few other Walmarts, no new display!  Wahhh!

Anyway, Happy Holidays.  Mine are so crazy, I think next year when things are more settled I’ll get to enjoy it more!

Oh, as I unpack my boxes of polish, I will put together a giveaway. 🙂

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!
