Giveaway round-up! (updated 10/9)

Hello all!  I know, I know, I'm over-achieving with these double-post days!  I had to get this out there, though, because there are a ton of awesome ladies offering up really generous giveaways that you have to check out! 
I also want to inspire you to go ahead and enter because you, too, can win!  I am not a lucky girl.  I never have been, and I doubt that I ever will be.  I am the epitome of Charlie Brown.  This weekend, after a long, hard week, I went to my mail box and found the awesome prizes from TWO giveaways I won last month!  These ladies made my day and sent me such lovelies!  Here's my little brag time:

I won my choice of a polish from Enkelini's Etsy Shop from the sweet Melissa at Pinked Polish!  This came super fast, but it was such a hard choice because the polishes in this shop are A-mazing!  I changed my mind a dozen times, but I chose Caypbaras Jungle, and am so excited I did!

The polish came in a pretty little drawstring bag with these adorable "congratulations" confetti inside!  Too sweet! 

Look at those color shifts!  I am SO excited to get this one on my nails!  THANK YOU, LADIES!

The second raffle I won was the (well-deserved!) 2000 Likes giveaway that the super-talented Kirsten at All That Glitters held!  I won her entire Halloween collection!  I cannot wait to see these on me (do I sound like a broken record?) and can see some serious swatching in my future!

  1. Wow!! You certainly got some awesome prizes in those giveaways!! I have only won a few, but it sure is fun! I really need to check out the Enkelini shop. That polish looks amazing in the bottle!

  2. I know, aren't they awesome? I have been entering giveaways for a while now, and I hadn't won anything. It doesn't take long to enter, but I was beginning to feel like maybe I shouldn't bother any more. Now I'm definitely in every one that I find! And her shop on Etsy really is great--I hadn't seen her polish before this and it's in my Favorites so I can go back when I have a little extra to spend!
