First prize…

An OPI mini ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ set. I got one as a gift and fell in LOVE with it. So I bought another one because I am sure someone else will love it too.

2nd prize…

Four pack of LA Colors metallics. Again, I’m glad I got my own set.  Hee hee!

3rd prize…


In honor of my niece having her second baby in August, 2 baby colors. However, we already know she’s having a girl. 🙂 From Cosmetic Arts, this is a creme pink and a creme blue.

See, EASY!

More information on my giveaway:

*I purchased all these items myself. They are new and never used.
*I wish I didn’t have to say this but I can only accept North American entries. I cannot take the risk of being slapped with a felony charge and a heavy fine by sending nail polish out of the country. Just in case you are not aware of it-it is illegal.

*Your entry will be eliminated if you put in any other URL, website address, anything that would divert a reader to another post or blog, other than mine. I am very lenient when it comes to folks who post their blog address in the comments. For my contests, it will not be allowed.
*If you have won with me before, fear not. You can enter anyway if you live in North America.
*Giveaway starts RIGHT NOW! It ends on Saturday, 7/2/11 at 8:00 PM EST.
*I will notify each winner by email. Please respond back by Tuesday, July 5, so I can get your mailing info. I have yet to find anyone who doesn’t respond super quickly. However, just covering the basics. I’m making the response back a few days longer as the deadline is over the July 4th holiday.

Now, go enter!!!

The Latest Giveway~Southern Magnolia Minerals

One of my favorite companies to do business with is Southern Magnolia Minerals. I have been a customer for over 8 years.

Created and owned by Barb Huffman, she started her business in 2001, which had been a dream of hers since she was a child. She mixes, creates, sorts, fills, packages and ships everything herself, with the help of her husband and daughter. Barb is very passionate about her business and I have yet to find such a caring business owner as her. Barb doesn’t know me personally, but she has taken the time to learn my skin tone and help me pick a foundation color that suits me to a T.

The other favorite item I LOVE from SMM is the ‘Shine Reduction Powder‘ and the ‘Translucent Finishing Veil‘. Barb is a Southern gal and she knows what it takes to keep a nose powdered. Even though I have dry skin, I can still get shiny from the Florida heat. I have my ‘Finishing Veil‘ to the rescue. Literally, I carry a dispensing brush of ‘Finishing Veil’ in my makeup bag and in the console of my car.

Right on the jar, you can read the ingredients. And just like the mineral foundation, it has an SPF 10+. If SPF is not important to you in your skin makeup, you need to rethink that!

Here’s a photo of my latest order…

Besides the ‘Shine Reduction Powder‘ and the ‘Translucent Finishing Veil‘, I purchased a sample of ‘Petal Pink HD Illuminizer‘. It’s an extremely soft, very delicate pink finishing powder that will help perk up a youthful glow on my face. This was a new item for me to try and I love how subtle the illuminizer is. It is not a girly-sleep-over glitter. It’s the ‘yea, I know how to take care of my skin’ glow. (More on the ‘Silk Kiss Glow’ this week.)

Throughout the next week, I’m going to highlight (hee hee…secret pun!) the different products from Southern Minerals Makeup. I want to share with you why I have been a loyal customer to this makeup for 8 years. I want to tell you what products are working for me.

 I went looking for a more affordable product than the ‘brand name’ mineral makeup that I had been using.  I found SMM online and SMM is, hands down, a better product. Not because it has a less expensive price tag than the former, but because it left me with a truly air-brushed effect.

When I placed my most recent order, I asked Barb if she would mind if I reviewed my experience with SMM and the products that I use. Not only did Barb say OK, she wants to treat YOU to the wonderful beauty of SMM.

First, I am going to have a giveaway for a $20 Gift Certificate for Southern Magnolia Minerals. All you need to do is leave a post here with your follower name, your email address and why you want to try Southern Magnolia Minerals.  The drawing will be held on Saturday, 6/11/11 at 8 PM, EST.

Only one entry, please. Sorry about this, but North American followers only.  I will contact the winner by email after the drawing for information to pass onto Barb. Winner needs to respond back in 48 hours.

Next, if you can’t wait to win, and you want to own SMM now, you can get a 25% discount on the SMM site by signing up for the newsletter. If you follow SMM on Facebook, you will receive special offers as well.

I’m excited to share Southern Magnolia Minerals with you. My face rarely leaves home without it!

666 Followers Giveaway is Now CLOSED

Thanks, dear readers.  😀

This community is wonderful.  I love reading nail and makeup blogs; look forward to it every night.  I enjoy the chats on Twitter; either for support or for silliness.  And, of course, just creating my own blog.  I am getting way more out of this than I ever imagined.

It’s 8 PM EST and the giveaway is closed.  My goal is to get through all the entries by tomorrow evening so I can announce the winners. 

Thanks again and, GOOD LUCK!!!

Because I Want You To Win Sooner

I can’t wait for some things to happen.  Like buying the new shades of Shatter by OPI.  Like seeing the movie ‘Thor.’  Like upping the date of my giveaway!!

These are too cute to keep them on my book shelf waiting to go to their new homes.  So, I’m changing the end date of my 666 Followers Giveaway.

Get entered in because the end date is now  Saturday, April 23, 2011 at 8 PM, EST.

Plus, I’m well past 666 followers.  I have 700+ and I haven’t been doing this a year yet.  *surreal moment*  Now, don’t think I’m being disrespectful, but I’m looking for READERS, not only FOLLOWERS.  😀

My 666 Followers Giveaway Awaits Your Entry

If you haven’t entered my giveaway I’m holding…what’s holding you back?!!

Who won’t want to win OPI’s ‘I Juggle…Men’?

Honestly, I shouldn’t have put the deadline so far out.  I bet many will even forget they’ve entered.  Sigh.  I’m learned as I go along.

And on that, I had no idea I’d be coming up to 700 followers!  OMG…there are a lot of you out there that like to win free stuff.  LOL!!!!!!!

But seriously, I want to increase my ‘reader’ base, not just the ‘follower’ base.  Please feel free to comment on my posts.  Good and bad (do be gentle, OK?).  Ask questions, give me tips or, just a ‘hi, Kimberly!’

Now, go enter and good luck.  😀

Libby’s Great 666 Followers Giveaway – UPDATE!!

I have changed the ending date to Saturday, 4/23/11 at 8 PM EST.  The former date was just too far away.  I’m antsy to give the prizes away!!! 😀

To celebrate reaching 666 followers (as of writing this post, I’m just 2 way), it is time for a giveaway.

I love having giveaways.  If you are like me, getting a package in the mail is so much fun.  I get giddy!

And without further ado, these are the giveaways I have in store for you…

The first place is Color Club’s newest series ‘Starry Temptress’ and this collection is called ‘Color That Twinkles’.  These beauts are neons with glitter!

Second place is…

A bottle of ‘I Juggle…Men’ from the newest OPI collection ‘Cirque de Femme’.  This is an overlay that is an iridescent micro glitter.  At least that is what I think it is.  It is gorg-e-ous not matter what it is!

And for third place…

This is Risk’s collection of ‘Glamorous Life’.  The sun was too bright to capture the glitter/shimmer in these 4 colors, but it is MAD!  Vampy sparkl-ishous.  🙂

This giveaway is until April 23, Saturday, at 8 PM EST.

Here are the rules:

1)  You must be a follower of my blog.
2) You must put your contact email address in your entry post.
3)  All entries must be done in one comment to this post.  Any more than one will not be counted as an entry.
4)  Tell me how you follow my blog and give me your name that you use.
5)  I have yet to have any issue with this, but winner will need to get back to me in 72 hours of receiving my email to claim their prize.

The giveaway is open internationally.

Extra entries:

1) You get 3 extra entries for posting this giveaway on Twitter.  Make sure you have this post’s address in the tweet.  You will need to put the tweet’s address in your entry comment as well.  Remember, only one comment for all your entries.

This gives each person a total of 4 entries.  I like those odds!  I will either use to pick the winners or, come up with something devious….hee hee hee.  Like, asking a stranger to pick three numbers between such and such; your fate will lie in the hands of a stranger.  😉

All these items are unopened and new.  I have purchased them all myself.  It is with the intent of thanking my followers that I am having this giveaway.  Thank you for being a follower and GOOD LUCK!

Wanna Get Lucky?? Secret Giveaway Winnings

What nail blogger doesn’t like to get lucky!  And how fun would it be to win something unexpectedly.
Hosting giveaways are really fun for me.  I’d say as exciting as winning one. 

Since March 1, I have been doing a green manicure as a theme for St. Patrick’s Day.  I had more green polishes than I thought.  But I was secretly stashing some brand new ones to giveaway.  In fact, I had so many, I’ve decided to have 2 different prizes.

From March 1 to 8:30 PM today, I’m counting up all the comments left during that time and giving each one an entry.  The first drawing will allow that person to pick from which group they want to have as their prize.  Second entry drawn will automatically get the other prize.  Wanna see what the prizes are????

The first set is: Sinful Colors ‘Ocean Green’, China Glaze ‘Four Leaf Clover’, Love & Beauty ‘Lime’ and CoverGirl NailSlicks ‘Midnight Forest’ and a coarse green nail file.

Here’s the second set…

Love & Beauty ‘Mint’, Love & Beauty ‘Light Green’, Love & Beauty ‘Mint’ (totally different color than the first one), Icing ‘Daddy’s Trust Fund Baby’ and Love & Beauty ‘Hunter Green’.

I had a total of 131 comments. picked #48,  as the first winning number.

That is ZuZu. 

The second number picked is 131.  That comment was by kittypolishnbags. 

ZuZu, please respond within 48 hours with your choice of set 1 or set 2, along with your mailing info.  kittypolishnbags, I will also notify you right away and let you know you have won.  Please respond back in 48 hours with your mailing info.

All the rest of you make me feel lucky, as well, to have you as followers. 

Real quick…here’s today’s final green mani…
