Sweet 16 for glorious 100 - 1st giveaway

Hey people! Here it is!! My first giveaway! Wiiiiiiiii! I'm totally excited about it! A bit nervous too, because of the form and all. As you could already see, the Google Docs is not my best friend, I accidentaly already posted the entry without writing a single thing in it. But I think it's ok now. Before we even get started I ask you: If you notice any kind of problem with Google Form, tell me! On the comments or email, whatever is easier for you! If I didn't do it right, we'll switch to entering via emails, or comments, if you prefer. Thank you!

To tell you the truth, I secretly planned to have my first giveaway on my birthday, in the middle of March, and I thought I was being very optimistic with number 100. You guys beating that plan for 3 months is such an awesome thing I cannot even put in words. I'm incredibly thankful for your time reading my ramblings and for every single comment that has been posted on this blog. In this hectic times, when we have tons of stuff to do and internet offers us so many things we can watch, listen to, read and so on, I take it as a major compliment that you're all willing to spend some of your precious time on this blog. So this giveaway is meant at a thank you to all of you, totally awesome people! You're the best!

And now to the prize! :)

Ta-daaa! Doyoulikeit doyoulikeit? :) I really hope so. :) As you can see, I changed my mind at the last moment. Tevta found some holo polish in the store and grabbed it for me, and since I wanted it to be 16 bottles, I threw out some glitter bottles. Because holo always beats glitter, right? :) So the teaser has been changed a bit, now it's 3 brands instead of 5 but much more holo! I thought that's a win situation. :)

So what's in it?
5 supercute NYX Girls bottles, 4 of them hardcore glitter.
No name (CN246), Show Girl, CN235, CN 229, Morroco

3 NYX polishes (and I think Paradise will be one of the awesomest layering polish, shimmer is beyond cool!)
Paradise, Techno (less blue IRL, more purple), Antique

Now, people, both NYX polishes have been opened and tested on one nail. I feel it is fair of me to tell you this, although you couldn't tell, because not even the necks are dirty. I asked once in one of my entires if anyone minds getting already opened polish and I got none negative replies, so I decided to make the giveaway a bit bigger by putting these in. If you mind, it's not a problem at all, if you get the prize, just tell me and I'll send you only the rest of it and I'll choose another winner for NYX. :) 

4 Essence Metallics LE polishes with magnetics particles (except the last one)
Copper Rulez!, Nothing Else Metals, Steel Me, Metal Battle

I didn't buy the Essence magnet, because it's really bad and I struggled with it to get any pattern at all. I discovered ArtDeco eyeshadow has tons better magnet! 
I had an empty one at home by chance, and if you don't have any, tell me and I will send it with the prize!! The pattern is much much intenser with it and it's tons easier to make it with. :)

4 Holografic Shine polishes. As you can see from the bottles (and on the photo of the close-ups), it's not an intense as-ChG-OMG-Collection holo. I haven't tried these babies yet as I don't have extra bottles at home, but from the bottles I'd say the holo effect is subtle.

406, 420, 417, 408

And just another tease with the close ups.

See the shimmer in Paradise? Awesome! Anyway, this is it. With the exception of NYX all others are unopened and basically all of them weren't used. One finger, really, how does that show on a bottle? ;) 

I really hope you guys like it!

The rules:
  • You have to be a GFC follower, new followers are always welcome, the giveaway is opened internationally.
  • You have to fill the form at the end of the entry. There is only one entry per person! If you make a mistake, let me know in the comments or via email (contact page) and I'll sort it out. I won't accept 8 same entries from one person in an hour. Yes, it did happen, that's why I'm pointing it out.
  • Additional entries can be earned with blogging about my giveaway. I accept either sidebar or entries. OR any other system of posting giveaways you use on your blog. Another addition entry if you twitt about it OR spread the word on beauty forums. I put Twitter together with beauty forums because I otherwise don't use twitter and so I can relate to those among you that don't either. ;) 
  • The giveaway will end on February 10th at midnight CET, I'll pick the winner at random, I'm not sure yet how, either a program like, or if the entries won't be numerous, with a giant box by hand. :D 
Major, major thank you to my dear Tevta for all the generous help with the giveaway! It wouldn't be so awesome without you! 

That's all from me, people. Please let me know if the form won't work properly and your thoughts on NYX being opened. And of course on the giveaway itself. :)

Thank you for reading!
