Fifty Followers and my first giveaway!

I've only been at this a short time and it's been a blast. I keep reading other blogs and learning tips too (see a most excellent one HERE ), but I would be doing this for nothing if I didn't have people actually reading what I type or, at the very least, checking out the polish porn.

I have, by some miracle, reached more then 50 followers and so, as promised, I present to you, my first ever and probably my only for a little while...giveaway!

Let me start by saying, it's a tough economy and I am no stranger to it so I wish I could do so much more, just because that is my nature, but the financial times say I gotta be realistic here and so I did the very best that I could. I hope that you like what I've put together.

I wanted to make it fun and have more than just one winner so, after scouring through my stash, doing some shopping to pick out some other fun stuff and here is what we have:

China Glaze Emerald Sparkled, Zoya Envy and Zoya Irene
for one winner
Sinful What's Your Name and Let's Talk from the new Rockstar collection,
and Wet n Wild Eggplant Frost
for the next winner
Sally Hansen Haute Chocolate, Wet n Wild Carribean Frost and
Sally Hansen Celeb City
for another winner!
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear minis (from the holidays) and the decals here below For winner #4!

These are all brand new, never used polish bottles.
Here's how to enter:

ANOTHER EDIT to add: The deadline for entry is February 26th - so that I have the weekend to draw winners and post it up! You have to be a follower...that's what I keep seeing and I think that's a good idea, so yeah, you have to do that.

Leave me a comment below telling me something you are looking forward to in the coming year, with everything being so challenging, let's see if we can't focus on some positive stuffs, ok?

That's almost it...if you want to have extra entries, please tweet, plurk, buzz, blog or facebook about my giveaway. Edited to add: I almost forgot! You can add me to your blogroll for another entry too.

Once you've determined how many entries you've got, make a note of your links and then...Fill out my form by clicking HERE
Good Luck Everyone! This giveaway is open to everyone, foreign and domestic. ;)
