Nail Nerd giveaway
Just as you’re getting over your holiday goodies high, it’s time to clear the racks around here and get rid of some of the overflow — which means a free goodie bag for a lucky follower!  And, in Nail Nerd fashion, it’s a surprise giveaway; I could take a picture of the shelf with my overstock but that’d ruin the fun.  Know that you’ll be getting a fun mix of polishes AND goodies (and not the $2 crap either, we roll deep and crazy around here).

But wait, there’s more!  Nail Polish Canada is also throwing in a prize of a Konad Starter Kit! The Konad Starter Kit includes 2 plates, 3 polishes and a stamp & scraper. Awesome, right?  AND if you leave a comment here with your favorite Konad plate you’ll get that plate too (on top of the starter kit).

The Konad Starter Kit prize is only available to US and Canada residents.  The Nail Nerd goodie bag can be shipped anywhere.  The forms have been kept separate for each giveaway so there’s no confusion. I’ll be pulling winners on FEBRUARY 1 (just in time for Valentine’s if you’re angling for a love-ly holiday mani).

Happy winter, and good luck!

  155. Anutka says:

    What a fun giveaway! Love the mystery :)

  156. Jennifer says:

    Thank you for all you do!!! I am a fellow nail polish lover and am learning as much as I can from you!!! I am a HUGE fan!!!
    Great giveaway!!! I hope I’m lucky!!!

  157. Emily W. says:

    I’m IN LOVE with your blog. I try to recreate your nails in a slightly less professional way. I do them all myself and I always get such great inspiration from you! You also introduced me to my new favorite nail polish, Sinful Colors, because it’s only two dollars a bottle and as a poor college student that can go a long way to expand my collection!

  158. deelirium says:

    Can you do video tutorials? Your designs are way cool compared to most other nail blogs out there.

  159. Michelle I (Midnite Echo - Midi Nightwind) says:

    I love stamp plate M65! But all the plates are awesome, so I would be happy with any of them. :P

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  160. Annabelle says:

    Sweet! Surprise polishes are always fun!

  161. Annabelle says:

    Oh! And I also meant to add that my favorite plate is the M60 plate 8)

  162. the nerd says:

    Wowzers thanks everybody! Truly, these comments really do make my day (and make me not want to be such a slacker when it comes to the nails). Glad you all enjoy the site — and GOOD LUCK!

    DalaLuz, absolutely we can play post office, however you want to roll!

    honmednaglarnasays, I’ll take a pic of the box before it gets shipped out.

    Vedra and Irina, you’re all set, I got you removed from the Konad one. :-)

    Emily, big hearts!!! And yesss with the Sinful Colors, that’s actually what got me started!

    deelirium, unfortunately (even with all the cameras in the house) I don’t have anything that would work really well as a video camera to capture video… I’ve got a small camera that shoots videos but frankly they’re just super crappy. If my budget allows I might look into it, but will try to use video when it’s helpful and available!

  163. Nadine B says:

    Fingers crossed
