Guess that Polish - Reveal and Winners

Tonight is the night all of you that have entered my Guess that Polish Giveaway have been waiting for.  I announce the winners and reveal the polish names.

First - the reveal.  All percentage results are based on entries that got more than 10/40 answers correct and will go into the random draw. I removed some blank entries and mistake half way through entries too.

OPI - DS Glamour - 100% correct answers!  You all started so well!

JOSS - Alternate Dimension - 96% answered correctly.

Picture Polish - Kryptonite - 100% answered correctly (and so you should have ;))

Revlon - Royal - 88% answered correctly.

Pretty Serious - Santas Sunburn - 96% answered correctly.

China Glaze - Let's Do It In 3D - only 28% answered correctly.  This was the trickiest one for you all.  Most of the incorrect guesses were for Ludurana Notavel or Layla Flash Black. Ahhhh this is such a pretty polish and I should reswatch it, cause it was one of the very first blog posts I did covering the Kalidescope polishes.

Ulta 3 - Blue Marlin - 88% answered correctly.  Most other answers were Nails Inc Baker Street, but I don't own that.

Orly - Space Cadet - 69% answered correctly. Another of the tricky ones.  Most other guesses were for Model's Own Pinky Brown.

aEngland - Ascalon - 83% answered correctly.

Essence - Blue Addicted - 89% answered correctly.

Ozotic/Artform - 518 - 83% answered correctly, other popular answer was Hits Ares.

Layla - Cloudy Violet - 77% answered correctly. Other popular Answer was Hit Dionisio and China Glaze LOL.

Nfu Oh - #51 - 84% answered correctly, other popular answer was Layla 52 The Butterfly Effect.

Cult Nails - Clairvoyant - 93% answered correctly.

Zoya - Ivanka - OK, I might have messed up a little with this one.  The swatch is definitely of Ivanka, but for some reason I wrote down Logan on my notes, so when I was giving you hints about this polish in the comments of the first post, they may have lead some people astray.  49% said Ivanka, 9% said Logan, 29% said China Glaze Running in Circles.  For overall results, I marked this correct if you said either Zoya Logan or Ivanka (although it should be noted that all the top answers had it correct as Ivanka)

Essie - Good as Gold - 68% answered correctly.  The other popular answer was China Glaze 2030.

Nubar - Jewel - 88% answered correctly.

Jade - Fasicinio Violeta - 95% answered correctly.

Glitter Gal - Lizard Belly - 95% answered correctly.

Color Club - Holiday Splendor - 79% answered correctly.  Other popular answer was China Glaze Atlantis.

  5. YAY! I got them all right! :D

    BOO! I didn't win. :(

    But that's cool. I'm very excited to have gotten them all right. That comes from having almost 700 polishes and being a very big fan of you blog. :) Congratulations to those who did win and to the others who got all of them right! It was a very good contest!

  6. Congrats ladies! I'm so impressed! There were a couple of pretty polishes I didn't think of (and may need to go find me some for my collection ;) )

  7. This was an awesome giveaway/quiz!! Even though I did not get around to getting all of the polishes guessed (only 13/20), I still had fun trying to get all my answers. More bloggers should do something like this.


  8. Congrats to the winners!!
    I'm also bummed that I didn't win but proud to have guessed them all right. I spent a LOT of time guessing but it was actually really fun! I hope there are more giveaways with awesome challenges like these, you gotta make us work for those prizes!!

  9. Well I'm glad I at least get bragging rights for getting them all correct even though I didn't win. I loved having a contest where I had some control or say in doing well as opposed to it being completely by chance. Hope to see another one in the future!

  10. what an awesome giveaway! sorry i missed it but awesome all the same - congrats winners!

  11. D'oh! I got two wrong. I almost got China Glaze - Let's Do It In 3D but changed it because I was sure #15 was Running in Circles. Oh well, congratulations to the winners! I really enjoyed this I hope you do another one. :)
