Christmas Nails & Christmas GIVEAWAY!

It seemed like I had been discussing the idea of starting a blog for a couple years and just about two and a half months ago I finally made it a reality! I can't begin to describe how much fun I have had putting posts together, meeting people through comments, instagram and even pinterest -- I couldn't be any more happy that I finally made this little idea into something real! This post is officially my 50th post! A milestone if you ask me and I wanted to mark that milestone with a little holiday giveaway! But first, I wanted to wrap up my week of 'red, red, red' posts with my holiday red nails. The picture just does not do the justice with how gorgeous the red glitter and the rose gold shimmer turned out! 



Essie's Penny Talk 
Revlon's Red Tote #460 topped with China Glazes Ruby Pumps 

The Giveaway:
It is no surprise that I have quite a love affair with nail polish -- and I want to share some of my favorites with you! Reds and maroons are stable for the holidays but I have fallen in love with Essie's 2012 Holiday collection! Many of you have seen Essie's Penny Talk and Essie's Butler Please on both my blog and just about every other online outlet as well. The bright and unconventional colors stole my heart and I am giving you a chance to make them yours!
