No Buy November – Can I Do It?

It is currently…one o’clock in the morning and I finally have found time to post on this blog.  It has been absolutely insane these past couple of weeks – work, papers, frustrating history teachers…enough excuses.  All I have to say for you to know how busy I was is…my nails have been naked for just about two weeks now.  Sad, I know.

This week is busy as well because my sorority is initiating our fall class AND it is mine and my boyfriend’s six month anniversary.  🙂  But!  I should be receiving two really exciting polishes in the mail this week that I will be swatching and showing off as soon as I get them, busy or not!  Speaking of polishes…

I will be attempting to do a No Buy November.  I am a college student and like others in my situation, I don’t have unlimited funds to spend on anything I please.  I don’t buy nail polish like a mad woman to begin with, but I think that I have enough nail polish right now to do millions of different things.  My sorority sisters don’t believe I can do it, but I am going to believe in myself and stick to my ambitions!  I did buy a few polishes I have been lemming for…but now I’m done.  🙂

Another really exciting announcement – the Nails of Many Colors Facebook page (which you can like by clicking on the “like” widget to the right of this post) has finally reached 100 likes!  Just as promised, I will be doing a giveaway!  It will be small because it’s my first one, but it’s a giveaway nonetheless!  What products would you like to see in this giveaway?!  Let me know, because it’s all for you!

I hope you all had a really great weekend, and make this week count!  I’m going to be getting a lot done, so you should too! 🙂

Moving on Up!

If you’re super in following and read nail polish/beauty blogs like me, you would have noticed that dozens of ladies (and some gents) are holding giveaways right now!  It’s getting closer to the holiday season, so Halloween and Christmas giveaways are just around the corner.

Also, if you follow Nails of Many Colors on Facebook (which you totally should) you would have noticed that I stated at 100 likes I would do a giveaway!  I’m not sure of the size of the giveaway, but it’s a giveaway nonetheless!  🙂

I’m at 76 likes right now…so it’s close!  Head on over, like the page, and spread the word!

I’m also getting more involved with sponsoring other giveaways on other blogs!  This way, we can all sort of link our blogs together and get the word out about more products and more points of view.  It’s really nice to be able to communicate with other nail bloggers too though, especially since I’m the only one I know of in my area.

I still have some really cool swatches to show you of fall polishes, like Pomegranate Nail Lacquer, OPI, 365 Days of Polish, and possibly some others as well!  Check back often and tell me what you think. 🙂

I hope your week has been going well, it’s almost over!

Halloween Giveaways!

I don’t know about you, but Halloween nail polishes are so exciting!  Greens, oranges, purples, and blacks all come out to play and you have an excuse to wear them every single day in October!

I’ve been reading all of the blogs that I follow daily (which is a lot), and so many people are doing Halloween giveaways.  I found this one and I wanted to share it with you! 🙂  (I will add more giveaways here when I find them!)

The Scholarly Nail is having a Halloween giveaway with 5 winners and 5 different prize packs!
They are really great prizes, so you should check it out.
Check out the blog as well!  🙂

You Could Win: A Lifetime Supply of Nail Polish?!

Imagine a world where you never have to go to the nail salon to get your nails done ever again.  A world where your nail polish looks professional and stays on for up to 14 days without any chipping or peeling edges.  A world where you own a lifetime supply of CND Shellac Nail Polish.

This dream could be a reality for one lucky polishaholic.  The awesome people over at NailPolishCanada.com are hosting an incredible giveaway in which one lucky winner will receive:
– 33 bottles of CND Shellac
– A 36-watt UV Lamp
– 5 bottles of Shellac Top Coat
– 5 bottles of Shellac Base Coat
– A bottle of Scrub Fresh

Wow wow wow!  Now if you do the math, it really only equals a 25 year supply of Shellac, but that doesn’t change my mind at all!  This prize is worth more than $1000 dollars, and it is an extremely generous contest!

Now I bet you’re all thinking, “Okay, okay, shut up Olivia.  How do I enter?!”  It is so easy!  Follow the link below, and in the header of the page where it says, “Enter to Win a Lifetime Supply of CND Shellac (click here +/-)”…well you’re going to want to click.  I only explain that because for some reason it took me a couple of minutes to figure it out!  Anyways, fill out the form with your name and email, and simply explain how winning the grand prize would change your life!  You must be 18 years of age, and even though this website is based in Canada, NailPolishCanada.com was generous enough to open it up to U.S. and Canadian residents!
