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!

Sephora by OPI – Beauty Junkie

When I went to Sephora last week, I was admiring their new aisle they have that is just dedicated to nail polish! With the new fake-nail swatch of each color, I was able to see the polishes in a different way. They even have that for all of the other brands they carry now.

The one that caught my eye was Beauty Junkie! I picked it up and wondered how I had never noticed it before. So I bought it. 🙂

It is really cool because in different lights, it can look brown, burgundy, or really dark mauve! I swear sometimes in the sun, it has looked like a plum even. Its a nice and rich creme, so even though it is really dark, it can’t be mistaken for black… I love it!

New Bundle Monster! Butter London – Toff with Flormar – 389

I was so excited to get my new Bundle Monster plates from Amazon! I went to a wedding over the weekend and wanted to try out one of the new designs.

The two plates I tested really worked well! The designs were really etched in deep and they were large enough to even cover my thumb with a lot left over!

I reallllly wish their new plates came with a coffee cup design. I thought they said they would with the next set but maybe I’ll have to keep waiting. If you want to see the designs that they did use, check this out:

Up Colors – Multi Magenta

This is Up Colors – Multi Magenta!

It has been raining here, so it was hard to get a sunny shot, but even in regular overcast light, do you see how it glows?

These are really strong holographic polishes, you can get them on the llarowe shop!

It was hard to show exactly why I like this color, compared to all of their other similar pinkish hues. This one is a dusty rose type of color. It isn’t as light as it looks in the photo, in full shade or low light, it actually tends to look darker.

I have Rosa Prisma as well. These apply really nicely, I didn’t even use my aqua base and had no weird bald spots to cover up or fight with.

BB Couture – Romeo

This is one of my BB Coutures that I love so much!

In the bottle, it looks like a coral/peach kind of mauve if that makes sense… then when its on the nail, it is more of burnt pink red. I know that doesn’t make sense. haha! Their colors are so unique! It has tons of glittery sparkle in it though!

I think I had to get this one after seeing it swatched on vampyvarnish.com so I’d recommend looking there or on google images to see how it has different tones in it on different people!

If any of you see an online store that is selling the China Glaze Metro collection, let me know pleeeeease. 🙂
