The Great Comment Giveaway!

Hi everyone, I decided to try something new for the month of February. I know I have a lot of people following me, but not many comments and I love hearing from you guys! In an effort to reward people who do read and comment (hi I love you!) I decided I'm randomly going to pick two comments this coming month (February) and reward them with prizes!

Rules:
1. Please make sure a way to contact you (twitter or email preferably) is implied somehow in your post. You may sign -@amanda_npe for example to indicate that I can reach you on twitter. You have 48 hours to respond to this or I will pick another winner.
2. One thoughtful comment per post per person. Meaning more than "Pretty!" or simple, one word posts. Preferably something that indicates you actually read the post. ;) (Yes, this means it's okay if you want to comment on every post for the month.)
3. I will use random.org to pick a post, and then a commenter from that post (much easier than trying to add all the comments together from all the posts) in order to pick a winner. Comments must be added by March 1st at midnight EST to count (which gives everyone who might be a day behind time to catch up).
4. Due to shipping costs, this is open to United States residents only. I'm sorry! I hope I didn't just discourage all my international readers from commenting (I love you guys too!)
5. Must be 18 or have parent's permission to enter. In Nebraska, you must be 19 and in Mississippi, you must be 21 due to those state laws. Yada yada yada, legal mumbo jumbo.

Here's the two prize packs!

Please note: Icing Birthday Beyotch and Lush Lacquer Lite Brite were both swatched once. Remaining products are unused.

Please note: Claire's Bedazzled and Ulta Alter Ego swatched once, other products are unused/unopened. The mini is Windestine Fireworks from an old old old collection she released, and I added a handwritten label :)
Good luck and I look forward to chatting with you!

xoxo,
Amanda

Both prize packs look great. Where do you find Icing polish? I have looked for that brand but apparently I don't shop where they sell it.

Thanks, I know lots of people read but I love comments so I hope it encourages people to get in the habit :)

Amanda, Nail Polish Enthusiast said...

Thanks :)

Amanda, Nail Polish Enthusiast said...

Thank you! Icing is sold at Icing stores which are kind of like Claire's. A lot of them have closed lately but they're affordable and lots of people have them nearby!

Emily Vasilakes said...

WOW. How coincidental that I've been looking at multicolor/confetti type glitter polishes all night! And pretty sure that Lac Attack Butterfly Kisses would look UHmazing over OPI's Mod About You that I just bought - totally LOVE it! I'm assuming Butterfly Kisses is a custom/homemade polish???

Melanie Snyder said...

great idea for getting more comments, I may have to remember this idea ;) thanks for the chance... some great prizes here, I love lite brite and that Lac Attack looks to be pretty. the Icing looks pretty neat too, never heard of them before.

That is such a great idea to inspire comments! I have a teeny tiny little blog, and I have ZERO comments, although I can see people have viewed the post. And sometimes it's a little sad! Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway, so many glitters!! :) I hope this sparks more comments for your posts and not just for this giveaway! - ninakazama@gmail.com

I broke down and purchased Silly Lily's "After the Storm" - it is MINDBLOWING!!! Over 100 different kinds of glitters, according to the description, and I believe it! The fact that she made it by candlelight in the wake of Hurricane Sandy just adds to the uniqueness. I love something with a story behind it.
