Alphabet Nail Challenge: N is for Natty (by Zoya)
I’m participating in an Alphabet Nail Challenge that I found over at Confessions of a Secret Shopper. She’s running her contest from September 1 to 26 - start between those dates, and you can add your link to the list of people taking the challenge. All you have to do is post 26 manicures, one a day, each day using a polish that begins with a different letter of the alphabet. I’m using this as an opportunity to go through my backlog of polishes (and photos still on my hard drive!!) to show off some of my newer goodies.
Today marks the beginning of the second half of this challenge! I’ve gotten a lot of new polishes swatched, and I’ve enjoyed wearing the colors, so I’m glad I signed up for this. My cuticles are less than thrilled, though. All the nail polish remover - even Zoya’s Remove+ - is drying them out a bit more than usual.
There are so many great colors in Zoya’s fall collections this year! The parade just never ends. Natty is a muted china-blue creme that I absolutely LOVE. It’s a lighter, less teal cousin to My Personal Serpent. Zoya doesn’t really have a blue in this range, not in any finish, so it’s very nice to see.
Autumn Splendor 2012 sweepstakes
The Maybelline Fall Fashion Week collection came out, but it's been kind of hard to find...and invariably, whenever I did find it, over half the stuff was gone. Which kind of stinks. And then, finally...I found a brand-new display, so I stocked up. Then I found another one, and thought...he-e-e-ey, giveaway time! Along with all four Maybelline Color Tattoos from the Fall Fashion Week collection (Mossy Green, Barely Beige, Gold Shimmer, and Rich Mahogany) you'll receive:
- one of the sold-out Fall 2012 Collection from Beauty from the Earth Cosmetics
- one Get The Look: Bring On the Berries collection from Beauty from the Earth Cosmetics
- two Intertubes lip balms from Shiro Cosmetics
- two full-size blushes from Meow Cosmetics
- one Sleek i-Divine palette, Oh So Special (prize donated by Sirvinya)
- one 12-hour waterproof jumbo eye pencil in Green Shimmer, from Sephora
- one compact mirror from elf cosmetics
- one set of Studio brushes from elf cosmetics
No nail polish in this sweepstakes package, so no ginormous mailing costs / restrictions...so the sweepstakes is open internationally! You must be registered with my site to enter, and site registrations will be set to manual approval on Wednesday, September 19th - sign up before that date to be eligible. There are nine (9!!) ways to earn entries, for 17 chances total.
