Loads to celebrate - a giveaway

I bet you thought: "That little bitch. Before she left she told us there will be a giveaway when she gets back and what do we get when she returns? Freaking novels about her road trip and no freaking giveaway!" Or didn't you? ;) I of course haven't forgotten about my little promise. I just waited for a silly thing, as I was getting really close to it. This is my 300th post on Did someone say nail polish! Holy cow! 300 posts! I thought it would be fun to launch a giveaway on my 300th post.

And not just the post number ... I really planned this giveaway to happen months ago. First with me reaching 666 followers (I even had the title of the giveaway - The Number of the Beast, hehe), but my studies just didn't allow it to happen and time passed. Then I wanted one for 700 followers, but I had a big break in blogging when that happened. Then, on 19th September, my first blogoversary happened, and all I did was study my ass off for a very important exam. And I'm sure a lot of other little or big milestones that I missed. Right now I'm over 800 lovely people who take their precious time to read my blog and it's about damn time I show you all the stuff I gathered for you in the last months. Since there are a lot of stuff I wanted to celebrate with this giveaway, I decided I'll just call it "Loads to celebrate". Since there is.

I wanted to do as many colours and finishes as I could so hopefully you'll all find something that looks appealing to you in the giveaway! 

And a closer look: 

  •  Depend 204 (all the way from Finland, we didn't get it in Slovenia. Thanks Kaneli, for getting it for me!)
  • Eveline Holografic Shine 401
  • Deborah Milano Pret A Porter Burlesque Red
  • Aden Cosmetics 58
  • Aden Cosmetic 53

  • Essence 50's Girls Reloaded LE You're a Heartbreaker
  • Essence Re-mix your Style LE DANCE Waking up in Vegast top coat
  • Kiko 268 
  • Catrice Papagena LE Welcome to the Jungle (thanks to Tevta for getting me another bottle!)

My pictures of some of them, to get a better look at the colours (they are NOT made with polish I'm giving away, I have my own bottles!):

And I still haven't worn Welcome to the Jungle, OMG, I was sure I did! Some awesome swatches of the rest: 

I'm sorry, I couldn't find any swatches of Aden Cosmetics polishes. They are both glitter, one blue in a blue base, other pink and blue in clear base. They looked cool, so I grabbed them on my road trip for ya. :)

I'm going to keep it simple this time. All you need to do is follow Did someone say nail polish via GFC and fill in the google document below. But here's one thing I'm allowing myself to do. As you probably noticed, I love your comments. I greatly appreciate every single one of them. Because I know commenting takes time. It really does. When I had time to comment a lot of blogs often, it easily took me an hour and a half to get through them all. So I completely understand all of you who simply do not have time to comment, even when you want to. I honestly do. But I'd love to show gratitute to all of my regular commentators in the past year by giving them an extra entry. I know the giveaway isn't big, but i still hope you'll see it as a token of my gratitude for every single minute you spend on commenting this little corner of mine. It doesn't mean I consider you a regular commentator only if you comment on every single one of my posts. Basically if I remember you commenting, I consider you a regular one, since that usually means you did it more than once and it doesn't really matter if the last comment was months ago or last week. I know things happen and sometimes you just have to stay away from the computer for weeks.

The giveaway is opened internationally and it ends on December 15th at midnight. Any sort of cheating will lead to deleting all of your entries to the giveaway. If you're not sure if you already entered, write a comment, don't do another entry! 

All in all it has been a great year, my dear people. I love blogging and the nail polish blogsphere is seriously one of the nicest I've ever encounter. I met some wonderful people in this year and I hope I'll meet even more of you in the next. :) Thank you for sticking around! YOU ARE AWESOME!

Do tell in the comments if you like the colours and if anything is left unclear! Thank you!
