I won! Sort of...

Hello lovely readers! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. 

The lovely Erika from Icy Nails had a giveaway in September where the prize was Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear in Pumpkin Spice. It looked lovely so I entered and crossed my fingers. When she announced the winner, I noticed that it appeared I had won the giveaway but I did not get an email. I thought maybe there was some confusion or there might very well be someone else with my name who had won (after all, Marta is not such an uncommon name) so I decided to contact Erika on her Facebook page. I just wanted to check, because I know I would have hated to be the winner and then lose out on the prize. I didn't hear anything back from her, and so I figured someone else had won the prize.

I didn't think much of it again until Erika messaged me back stating that I had won and she had sent an email to the address I provided, but had to choose another winner because I had not responded. I obviously entered my email incorrectly, whoops! After apologizing profusely for the miscommunication (even though I was the one who made the mistake), she offered to send me another prize package to make up for it! Can you believe how absolutely sweet this woman is?!?! Anyway, when the package arrived this is what it contained: 

China Glaze Magnetix in Pull Me Close and Drawn To You and she included the magnet! Isn't that amazing! I don't have any China Glaze magnetic polishes, so I'm excited to try these out!

Again, thank you Erika! If you guys don't already follow her blog, please check it out! Icy Nails is a lovely blog. 

Thanks for reading!

Blog Your Heart Out!

Hello all! I have been feeling very under the weather (my niece got me sick lol), so I haven't done my nails in well over a week. So today I have a different type of post for you guys. The lovely creator of Ever Belle's Mani-fest has awarded me with this: 

You guys should go check out her blog because it is fantastic! 

Here are the rules for the award (taken straight from Ever Belle's Mani-fest ):

The Blog Your Heart Out button is for women who love to blog. It is awarded to bloggers that have under 100 followers and, well, blog their heart out! If you are awarded, you must nominate 5 other bloggers with under 100 followers and answer the following questions:

What/who encouraged you start blogging?
How did you choose what topic(s) to blog about?
What is something that most people don't know about you? 
What are 3 words to describe your style?
What do you like to do when you're not blogging?

Here are the blogs I am choosing (you guys need to check them out, they deserve a ton more readers than they have because they are seriously fantastic):

1. Lola Sparklez
Lovestruck Lacquer
3. LacqsoLuv
4. Reach For The Polish
5. Meg's Manicures

And here are my answers:

1. I started blogging because I was driving my friends and boyfriend crazy by talking about polish lol. They are not interested in nail polish AT ALL, which is kinda shocking to me. So I started blogging in order to share my passion with others who are just as obsessed interested in polish as I am. 

2. Oops, I think I already answered this lol. I absolutely adore nail polish. I think it is a fun and easy way to be creative and express yourself. 

3. This is tough, I'm not the type to have secrets. But as my readers don't know me very well, I would have to say that most of my readers do not know that I have been with my boyfriend for more than six years. I met him when I was very young and we were best friends for FOUR years before realizing we loved each other. We were slow to get started lol, but I am glad we finally realized our true feelings because we make a fantastic couple :) 

4. Mmm, I would say classic and comfortable with moments of va-va-voom ;)

5. I am a total bookworm so I spend a ton of time reading. I love watching movies. I also love the beach; the beach makes me feel refreshed and new again. It is my therapy :) 

Thanks for reading!
