Hey guys! Sad to see no votes in the poll yet; I'm really interested in your opinions!!
That aside, how are everyone's nails? Check below for my current mani! I'm so excited, but I'm DYING to change it already, even though I adore it! But tomorrow we go to pick up the daughter and let our son open his presents, and that OBVIOUSLY calls for a Holiday theme! I was so excited when I did this one.. My beau ACTUALLY recognized that it was a holiday garland! I used Color Club's "Berry and Bright" with Julep's Susie for dots. :)
Interested in Susie by chance? She's one of my personal favourites. Check the image/link below to see more or buy one for yourself! :D
Okay, maybe it is. But it's for a good reason! Lately, facebook stats have been down on Cherry Varnish, which is a valid cause for concern. I do what I do, for YOU; And if there is no you, for whom do I do?
Yeah, probably channeled a bit too much Seuss there, but he's amazing so I don't care. :) Point is, less than a dozen of you commonly see all my Facebook postings; Yet I'm gaining likes/followers! Who can see this? Let me know via like or comment!
I've also got a hidden purpose for this one! :) I'd like to do a giveaway soon, but only if I can hit 200 likes! The giveaway will take place either at 200 likes, or in February; Whichever comes first. This is THE ONLY place I'm announcing this, so I hope you're keeping track! I'll create a tab here on the site just for the giveaway. Tell me! What would you like to see as a prize/prizes? What would you like to see here on the site? COMMENT BELOW!
Ayup. Now that the 12 Days of Julep are over, I've been in the mood to be doing NotD. Never been big on the "otD" craze, but for polish: I'll do it. :3 Trying to keep them Christmas themed! I still haven't received my striper tape, or dotting tools, or pretty much ANYTHING I ordered specifically for this purpose, so I'm working with limited mediums right now. But, if you have something you'd like to see MY take on, comment below! I'd love to find some new things to try! :) I have another to show you all, but I have to upload it. Check out the ones up for now, and come back later to see more! :D
Has Santa put you on his Nice list? Or have you been Naughty? Maybe, like me, you're more of a Naucey? I'm a definite Naucey. Nothing truly bad, but then nothing super good either! YAY! [sort of >_>]
Either way, less than 24 hours after the 12 Days of Gifting were heralded out to mixed reactions, they've given us a BEAUTIFUL Mystery box! The Naughty and Nice Mystery Box is $24.99, but if you've held onto your 40% off code from the December box, you're in luck [And how'd you DO it? o:] you'll get it for $15!! And word is, if you add-on the Mystery Add-On, you can get it and the Mystery box itself for $24-$25 with the 40% coupon!! How awesome is that? Prettttty awesome! XD
This one is already proving extremely popular; Through my links alone, almost a dozen have been sold! I can only imagine this to be true to the TENFOLD at least across the board! So get to it before you lose the chance! O:
Alas, our time has come to its end [For this countdown, at least]. And with that, maybe it isn't the bang you were all looking for, but it's quite the deal nonetheless! This Halo Lip Gloss set is packaged in such a way, that you can use it as a Christmas Tree ornament! Or, you know, use the tree to play hide and seek with the gift ;D Don't forget it's only around for today!!
We had lots of winners yesterday who will soon be snuggling up with their new mini iPads; And sadly some who might have a few more hoops to jump through. [We're rooting for a happy ending!!] Did you hear of any Gift card winners? Congratulations if you're one of them!!!
Today's day 11, and that means our time together in this WONDERFUL count down is almost over. But don't worry! More deals are always on their way! Lucky for us, today is another FREEBIE! Add $25 of product to your cart, as well as the Neutrals set, enter the code and BAM! You get the neutrals set FREE! 8D
My Julep gave to me.... FIIIIIIVE AWESOME SPINNNNNS!
4 discount codes, 3 bargain deals, 2 polishes and a CHANCE FOR AN IPAD MINNIIIII [Or a $1,000 Visa Gift Card!! O:]
That's right, if you HAVEN'T by some miracle seen today's Julep deal... GET. THERE. NOW. I personally can confirm at LEAST half a dozen gals that have won an ipad AND been contacted by Julep already!! HOW WONDERFUL? And, there are still TWO days left! Excited? You better be. NOW GET SPINNING AND SPENDING! :D
Gooood morning Nail-it-nammmmm! Yup. I just did Blue's Clues and Robin Williams in the span of 3 seconds. That's just how I roll. You know how else I roll? MANIIIIS!
Okay. Those of you that follow my personal facebook are more likely to know the following information; However since that might not be entirely likely [Hey, I get it; Newsfeeds be full y'all], I'll share it anyway. Back in October I participated in a Swap with a gal who had never swapped before [Swap: Nailingo for a trade of polishes and/or cosmetic and edible goods for the same of approved value. No monetary funds traded usually. Pure barter!], and as is common practice I included several candies and goodies, and she [New as she was to swapping] did not. She felt bad, but love the idea, and promptly set up a Holiday Swap in which gals would load up based on a Secret Santa/Wishlist style arena and gift their "giftee". Guidelines were set, wishlists anonymously swapped, and deadlines put in place. Yay!
My giftee gave me the BIGGEST BESTEST box of AWESOME I could never have asked for, and I'm STILL working on trying out all the new polishes and goodies I was sent. And my gifter says there are still MORE things coming! Seriously! I'm amazed, and feeling seriously blessed over here. Why am I telling you this? Beeeeecause 90% of what you see mani-wise [At least in this post, if not also in future posts] are probably going to, at least in part, be focused on using those. Hell, I still haven't swatched all the polishes I got from Julep's December box!!! O:
Annnnnywayyyyy, here are the manis I have on hand, [Heh...heheheh.] and the pictures of my Holiday Swap gifts!
Not much, only DAY NINE OF TWELVE!!! Unsure just now how this one will pan out; No specifics are shown or given just yet. But, I do see some Holiday Gift Guide specials; Such as the super loved Gem Collection; Featured in the advertisements we've been given to share with you all.
Plus, who can complain about 50% off? I know I can't. Especially since it indicates an EXTRA 50% off. So maybe we'll be getting deals on TOP of deals? One can hope; Stay tuned and let me know if you take advantage of it! :D
Link is down for another hour or so still, but check out the image! Several of you have expressed disinterest, and in some cases anger, at the previous few deals; What are your thoughts on this one? If you have any C + I jewelry from prior Julep deals, what are your thoughts on the quality and style? :D
With this blog, you can expect to see reviews, impressions, tips, inspirations, deals, and more. If there is something specific you would like to see, don't hesitate to let me know!
