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!


L.A. Girl – Antique & Enchanting

Last time I made a purchase from Cherry Culture, I picked up some from the shimmery nudes collection that L.A. Girl came out with.

I got 3 and only liked one of them. Here are the two that seemed kind of blah on me. I bet they’d look awesome on different skin tones.

Antique is a light gray taupe nude with some silver shimmer:

Here is Enchanting. I could pull this one off I think, but I just don’t like lavender tones on me. The only one I like is Zoya – Marley, so I put Marley on my pinky in this swatch for comparison:

Next, I’ll swatch the one I liked the most!

Eyeko – Lilac Polish

This is one of the polishes in my Spring Giveaway that you can win.

Its a really pigmented lavender glossy creme.

I’ve said a few times before that the purples don’t look good on me unless its like dark eggplant, but the polish is awesome if you do like purples!

I’ll be swatching more Eyeko polishes soon because I LOVE their fun products!

In case you’re interested, their shop is at eyeko.com and you can use my ambassador code E14980 to get a free gift, which I think is their pink sparkly lip gloss right now! Their free gifts are full size too!

Finger Paints – Get Real-ism!

The nicest girl is sending me some more Revlon Post Trauma since it works so well as my pink for a french manicure, so I wanted to surprise her with a pretty lavender polish. She loves lighter purple polishes, so I went to Sally and picked up this super pretty one!

Finger Paints – Get Real-ism!

It is really shimmery, but it has that hidden shimmer type of underlying bright flash. Too bad I don’t like purple, it really so pretty!

Here’s a close-up of a sunnier shot that I had gotten…
