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.

OPI Holland Collection Swatches – Gouda Gouda Two Shoes, Wooden Shoe Like To Know, Dutch Ya Just Love OPI, and Vampsterdam

I was dying to try these out, mainly for Wooden Shoe Like To Know. I don’t really have a brown like this that glows with shimmer! I’m so excited about it, I’m going to wear it on my business trip this week. (I’m going to Colorado Springs for a meeting, and it is going to be freeeeeezing.)

I also got tired of having to file my nails every 5 days because they’re growing so fast from my supplements, so I filed them way down! I figured at least this will last more than a week this time.

Anyway, here are 4 of the new Holland Collection swatches!


Sorry about the way my window screen left some weird grid shadow… I just wanted to get the swatches up ASAP.

Here they are in the shade, so you can make sure that even when the shimmery glow isn’t shining through, you still like them!

As you can see, the Gouda Gouda Two Shoes looks horrible on me in general lighting, ick.

Vampsterdam is the only one of these that isn’t a cream with inner glow. Its more of a frost, with really silver highlights all through the dark eggplant color. I love this one as well.

I find the Dutch Ya Just Love OPI to be too purple on me, exactly like Zoya Tru, so I’ll post the comparison of those two next… they are exactly the same.

So I put the two purples up on my MUA swap list and I’m going to try and franken the Gouda Gouda Two Shoes since I do love the glow but hate how the tone isn’t dark or light enough. I’ll probably add a sheer dark brown!

Essence – Cut Off the Beige

This is the last one I have from the You Rock! Collection, it was the only one that was kind of blah to me, mainly because I have never been into “nude” polishes, so anything taupe-ish has to be dark for me to like it.

It is nice and shimmery though! I put it up for swap and it went lightning fast, so I know others like it!

I’ll be posting my TuffScent.com giveaway soon! Not only do they smell so heavenly, but they are gorgeous and the people who run that place are so incredibly generous and nice!

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!
