1 Year Blog Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

This post has been in the making for a long time! My blog turned 1 on April 17th and since then I've been trying to concoct ideas for a celebration giveaway!

So.. this is what I came up with! Please click "read more" under the image below to view the details!

This contest is open from June 17th, 2012 at 12:01am EST to August 1st, 2012 at 12:01am EST.

What you can win: The winner of this giveaway will receive: 
- 5 polishes of their choice from the China Glaze Summer Neons and/or On Safari collections
- A handmade nail polish ring OR pair of nail polish earrings OR nail polish pendant (made by yours truly)
- Some other miscellaneous items (this is a secret!)

Just a note, the prizes in this giveaway are all purchased/made by me!

This contest is open to readers from Canada or the United States only. I have not been able to figure out a method of shipping to other countries yet - sorry international readers! I'll try to set up a giveaway sometime in the near future with items that aren't as complicated to ship as nail polish!

To enter, please use the Rafflecopter widget below. To get entries you:

MUST be a GFC Follower - 2 Entries
Tweet about the giveaway (optional) - 1 Entry
Follow @livelylacquer on Twitter (optional) - 1 Entry
 "Like" Lively Lacquer on Facebook (optional) - 1 Entry
Answer the Bonus Question (optional) - 1 Entry

Please only enter once. I will be reviewing entries and if I find anyone entering more than once, they will have to be disqualified from the contest. :(

Anyway, onto the prize stuff! The winner will be able to choose a maximum of 5 polishes from either the Summer Neons or the On Safari Collection. I have swatches of most of the polishes from these collections (I'm only missing one from the On Safari Collection) here:

Summer Neons part 1
Summer Neons part 2
On Safari (11/12)

In addition to these, the winner will be able to choose from a handmade nail polish ring, a pair of nail polish earrings or a nail polish pendant. I will be making the piece of jewellery after picking a winner, so the winner will be able to choose what kind of colour combination they would like to have on their prize. I have some examples of jewellery I have made, so the winner will be able to win something similar to this (but with a custom nail polish design/colour).

Ring: The ring features a 12 mm glass cabochon set on an adjustable silver filigree ring. The ring shown above is China Glaze's Dorothy Who? over Nails Inc Baker Street.

Earrings: These earrings also feature a 12 mm glass cabochon with silver french hooks and real bird feathers. The earrings shown above are Butter London Tart with a Heart over the Black Knight.

Pendant: First of all, I'm not quite sure what these are made of, so if you have any allergies to metals at all - please beware. Seriously. I don't want to ship anything to anyone and then have complaints of allergic reactions or other nasty things. I am going to try to source another pendant tray that is not as "iffy" so I will update this when I find something suitable. The length of the chain can be specified by the winner. Shown here is a "glitterbomb" design.

*Whew*. Alright. I think that's everything. Thank you so much for supporting my small blog throughout the past year! I look forward to sharing more fantastic nail polish with y'all in the future! Happy Sunday!
