Hi, my name is Blakeley and I have a confession: I am addicted to nail polish. Like, seriously. I have two shoe boxes and a drawer FULL of polish. Maybe I should go on that TV show ‘Hoarders’? Because, yes, I hoard nail polish. I have never once finished a bottle and I never get rid of it, yet I can’t stop buying more. I probably have the exact same color in three different brands. But I paint my nails 2-3 days a week, so that makes it okay, right? The moment it starts to chip – BAM! Time for a new color. I even kind of struggle with gel manis because it lasts too long and I get bored with the color. See, told you have a problem.
BUT … in the words of Juan Pablo, “ees okay!” Because this time it paid off. A few weeks ago, I came across some pretty fabulous Maybelline nail polish colors and gave myself a fun manicure, which I posted on Instagram.
About a week after, I discovered Maybelline’s limited release Bleached Neon polishes that were available during the month of May only. Of course, I had to have them, and shared my mani using two of the colors.
Not long after, I received a direct message on Instagram from Maybelline saying that I was a winner in their #ColorShowoff IG Contest and had won their entire Color Show nail polish collection. SCORE!!!! I assumed I’d won maybe ten bottles of polish.
Holy nail polish!! You know that sound that plays in cartoons when something magnificent happens, kind of like the heavens opening up? I’m pretty sure that played when I opened this box. The contents of that box translated into 48 bottles of nail polish.
It was like color overload. I couldn’t get the bottles out of the box fast enough, and then I couldn’t decide which color to try first! I decided to go with this amazing pastel pink. I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect pale pink, and have finally found it in Maybelline’s Pink Embrace. Or should I say, it found me.
Now, y’all know me. I can’t keep a good thing to myself. Which is why I’ve decided to share my good luck with YOU! Two lucky readers will win four bottles of nail polish from my new collection. One will win these three colors + a mystery color, selected by yours truly:
Fun, right? (P.s. That Gilded Rose above is amazing. I already own that and the Pretty In Peach next to it, which is what I used in the first IG picture.)
To enter, just leave a comment below letting me know a fun fact about you and nail polish! It can be a tip or trick you may have, your favorite colors, favorite brand, or even just the colors you would like to win. I will select two winners at random on Friday, July 11th. For a bonus entry, tweet a link to this post so that your friends can enter, too. Just be sure to tag me, @BlakeleyA, so that I can include it in the drawing. (Note: Winners will be contacted via the email associated with their comment below, so please make sure you use an email that you check! I will also post the winners on this blog post.)
So, what are you waiting for? Get to commenting so you can get to painting! I know that’s what I’ll be doing for the next five weeks …
Peace. Love. And nail polish.
