Maybelline Blue Water & My Favorite French Manicure


I know many of you hate this polish & understandably so, but I couldn't resist buying it when I found it at the Dollar Tree. I gave it to Ashley, since my nails are a slightly stained. Blue Water is pictured on her nails with 2 coats. It's so sheer! You're thinking "Aaghhh! Why would anyone want such a polish?"

But wait! I know Blue Water is pretty scary by itself, but Ashley transformed it into one of my new favorite manicures! She added french tips in Icing My Blue Heaven and now I think it's gorgeous!

Such a lovely effect! So if you picked up the Water polishes, don't despair! Great job Ashley!

I love giveaways. Each week I'll post giveaways that I think are awesome! I'm trying to catch any giveaway that has nail polish & I always post them on the Monday before they close. I figure some publicity towards the end of the entry period is a good idea, so don't worry that I've forgotten yours if I don't post it immediately! On the other hand, I know that I will occasionally miss a giveaway or two. If I miss yours, please know that it was accidental and nothing personal!

Shop Clothing @ Medusa's Threads & Get A Chance To Win A Free Polish

Update. Sadly for me, no one purchased any clothing during the alloted time, so no winner for this contest.

A quick contest! If you make any clothing purchase from Medusa's Threads, you will be automatically entered to win a free nail polish of your choice from my store. After the contest ends tomorrow night, I will contact the winner to find out which polish they want added to their package. I'll be adding more polishes tomorrow and will set one of each aside to make sure the winner gets the polish that they want.

RULES:
PLEASE READ ALL OF THE RULES.
  • This giveaway starts right now, and will end Friday, March 25th, 2011 at 11:59PM Central Time.
  • We'll select the winner with random.org's random number generator and notify the winner by email on Saturday, March 26th.
  • The winner will have 24 hours to respond with desired nail polish. If the winner doesn't reply within 24 hours, that winner will forfeit the prize and an alternate winner will be selected via random.org.
  • Winner will not be allowed to return clothing purchased during this contest. (Well, they can but they then will be charged for the nail polish.)
  • If the winner purchases nail polish at the same time as clothing, the price of one polish will be refunded.
Here's one of my current favorite options.
