As promised yesterday, here is my three year blogiversary giveaway. Having a regular rafflecopter giveaway is just not my style, I like to make it much harder, but more fun to enter.
This competition requires polish knowledge and will favour those that have been longtime followers of my blog - simply because they would have seen all of these polishes on my nails in some way, shape or form.
Below are twenty different swatches from twenty different brands. No brand is represented twice. I have not included any hand-made indie brands, but there are some lab made smaller or niche brands. I did consider giving you a list of the brands, but I though that would make it way to easy for you. I've put a few easy ones in there that you should all get, but there are also some trickier ones. There are some polishes that have known dupes, so the tricky part is knowing which version I have.
At the bottom of the page is a simple Google Docs form where you are to provide your name and email then list off the polish brand and polish name for each of the twenty shades.
Six JOSS holographics - Alternate Dimension, Caribbean Holiday, Sudden Impulse, Diamond Flash, Flamingo Dancer & Tantastic Glow. Generously provided by Beauty World
Six Contrary polish shades - Play Me, The Way I Am, Better Together, Desert Fruit, Santorini & Bright Night. Generously provided by Contrary Polish and Llarowe.
Six Picture Polish Collaboration shades - Mallard, Paradise, Focus, Atomic and Majesty - Generously provided by Picture Polish and Kryptonite provided by me.
Cash prize of $50 AUD - provided by me.
Six original Model Own Beetlejuice collection polishes - Emerald Black, Purple Blue,Golden Green, Pinky Brown, Aqua Violet& Base/Top coat
Total prize pool value: $278
Time to start guessing...
I recommend that you write down all your answers on a piece of paper first, then come and enter them into the google doc form below. That is much easier than trying to scroll up and down as you go.
The boring but important part.
This giveaway is run by More Nail Polish. Entry is open Internationally. Competition begins March 23 2013 and ends April 14 2013 at midnight. Entrants must provide their name and email address on the google docs form. Each person may only enter once. Duplicate entries from the same email address will be deleted.
Any users posting comments on this blog post identifying polishes by brand or name will be deleted and disqualified from entering.
The entrant who correctly identifies the most polishes by brand and name will be the winner. The highest possible score is 40/40 - one point for each brand and name for all twenty swatches Up to four winners may be selected if they all share an equal score. If more than four entrants have the same highest score, then four winners will be selected at random from those top scoring entrants. The prize pool will be split as I see fit to accommodate the potential number of winners.
One additional winner will be drawn at random from all entrants who get more than 10/40 correct answers.
Following More Nail Polish is not a requirement, although I do pretty awesome fun things here so you might want to stick around.
