Julep Maven Box for a Penny

Ooooohhh, girls! Have I got some exciting news! Julep is giving out Julep Maven box subscriptions with the first month for only a penny to the first 1000 to jump on the deal! I already grabbed mine; I'm excited!

If you want to grab this deal, head over to Julep using this link (I'll get referral bonuses if you do!) and hurry before the first 1000 runs out!

You can cancel your subscription at any time, so you could just get the first box for a penny just to try Julep out! I know I'm excited to try it and hope I get some awesome colors! The Style Quiz at their site helps them figure out what to send you - I got Bombshell. What did you ladies get?

My Epic Win from Nail'd & Polish'd's Soulstice Giveaway

I won the Soulstice Nail Colour Giveaway at Nail'd & Polish'd from the lovely Cindy! I got my prize in late November - it's just taken me a little while to post!

A cute red bow that Icarus just had to play with right after I took it off. That cat is so silly!

And the winnings!

Soulstice's Fall 2011 collection - Ibiza, Telluride, Dublin, South Beach, and LA

I've never gotten Soulstice before, but I am so glad I won this giveaway so that I can try them out! I'm probably most excited about Telluride, it looks absolutely lovely and unique! I think it's great that Soulstice is a vegan and cruelty free brand along with being 3-free.

Thanks again, Cindy!

My Epic Win from Amy's Nails 50 Follower Giveaway

I won Amy's Nails 50 Follower Giveaway and got two lovely glitter frankens and a Bon Bons glitter!

Look at the cute packaging!

Because Amy didn't name these and I need to have some way to recognize them in my polish list, I'll call the black glitter Ballroom Blitz and the pink glitter Cute Cupcake (I love the glitter sandwiches and all the cupcake nails I've seen)! Yay for having frankens that are kind of dupes for Deborah Lippmann polishes - Forget You and Candy Shop! I can't afford those guys!

Thanks again, Amy!

New to Me Nail Blogs! [Volume 1]

I love looking at nail art and swatches just as much as any other lacquerista out there, and I certainly love finding new nail blogs to add to my Google Reader to drool over when I'm lounging around. :D

Here are a couple that I've found or been introduced to recently! (And added to my blogroll, of course!)

Manicure Addict - I've never seen another nail blogger so close to me! Katherine is just a skip, hop, and a jump away from me over in Greenville! She did some awesome Boo nails from Super Mario here for her 31 Day Challenge.
Art Evolve - Ashesela's sister did some awesome TARDIS nail art here. I am a huge fan of Doctor Who, so I automatically get googly-eyed whenever I see some Doctor-related nail art. Fun!
Pretty Digits - I don't think I've ever seen Fair Isle patterns used for nail art before, but Anna pulled it off amazingly here!
Polish Chest - Danny is studying biology (Another bio polish junkie like me? Who knew!) and philosophy over in Germany! What fun! Her first stamping experience is posted over here!
The Lacquer Factor - She has a bunch of great OPI manis, and she did a cute mani here with flakies over OPI - Meep-Meep-Meep!

These ladies have great skills - and I'm going to bet a lot of patience - to do these great designs! Now I'm just dying to do some nail art inspired by some of my favorite things - video games, the Doctor, maybe even some penguins for the holiday season! Penguins are the BEST! :D

If you have a nail blog or other cosmetics blog that's not over on my blogroll, or one that you just want to share with me, leave a link in the comments! I love getting new reading material! (Even though I'm a little short on time to read them nowadays, I always love looking!)
