Thank you for being my friend - *CLOSED**

I started this little blog in April and I never thought I'd ever get 50 followers - and now I have 150+.  I have rediscovered an addiction affinity for nail polish and in the meantime, realized that I really like putting thoughts to "paper".   I have made quite a few bloggy "friends" and found a way to keep in contact, through pictures and stories, with family and friends.  It's been an action-packed seven months. 

Yep!  You read that right!  It's about time, right?  In commemoration of my 150th blog post and reaching 150 followers, I am hosting a giveaway.  It's nothing major, just a small collection of things I've been gathering over the last few months.  You're probably wondering what's up for grabs.  Well, let's see, shall we?

The Color Club Glitter Vixen collection.  From L to R: Sex Symbol (silver), Magic Attraction (holo), Sultry Diva (gold), Art of Seduction (red), Sexy Siren (blue), Object of Envy (green) and Tru Passion (purple).
This is the obligatory blurry pic to show off the gorgeousness of the holo glitter that is Magic Attraction.
Also included is NYC Love Letters, LA Colors Color Craze Wired and a nail art kit with gemstones, orange stick and top coat (no promises on the TC quality).

There's more included in this giveaway, but the impatience of my son, Nate, doesn't let me take as many pics as I'd like.  Now for the rules...

1. You must be a follower of my blog.
2. Include your name and email address (you can make it bot-proof if you want). 1 entry
3. Blog about this giveaway, include at least 1 pic from the pics above and link back to this giveaway.  Please provide a link in your comment. 1 entry.
4. Tell me what you'd like to see more of on my blog. 1 entry
5. This is open to everybody (USA and beyond).  However, if you live out of the US, please know that I will chose the least expensive shipping, so it might take a while to get to you.
6. This contest is open through Saturday, November 27, 2010.  The winner (there will be only 1 winner) will be announced shortly thereafter on my blog.

There ya go!!  Good luck to everybody!  Let the entries begin.
