2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WISHLIST GIVEAWAY!!!

Wow, so almost 2 years(Jan 21st) and over 400 posts later this blog is still a thing.  We would like to thank the academy.  Also the producers and writer.  George Clooney you are great, and you deserve this.  Finally we would like to thank the fans.  Without you guys we would not be standing here on this fictional podium.

I know, shut up and get to the prizes :P  Well we don't actually have the prizes...yet.  We need your help for that.  We are having a wishlist giveaway!  What's that you ask?  Here's the deal, you send us your polish wishlist and we send you 3-5 polishes off of it!



Rules
- Send us a link to your wishlist.  No wishlist, no prizes.
- Make sure we are able to see that wishlist.
- This is an international giveaway, but please make sure shipping polish to your country is ok.
- Please have at least 15-20 polishes on your list(you can have more), but we would love a selection.
- Know that we are not made of money, so please make sure you have a decent number of reasonably priced polishes.  Which leads to the next point.
- We have the right to select a new winner if we don't think your wishlist is possible.  So maybe you shouldn't enter if your wishlist consists of only Dior, discontinued Chanel polish, and a bunch of HTF polishes.
- That being said you don't have to limit yourself and not put discontinued/HTF stuff, but be aware that some discontinued stuff can either be pricy or just really hard to find.  But that doesn't mean we wont try.  So try to have a least a fair number of polishes that are somewhat easy to find :P
- ETA:  Feel free to add brands as a whole to your list. (So you can put OPI down and saw what type of colours you like for example). 
- ETA:  Because I have already taken a peek at some of the wish lists ;) I'm going to say you can add things like stamping plates.  But please still have mostly polish.
- Must be over 18, or have parental permission.
- Must complete all mandatory entries.

Extra Info 
- Ends Feb. 15th, Midnight EST. (So plenty of time to make a wishlist up :P)
- While some polishes are harder for us to come by don't exclude stuff.  We still may somehow be able to get out hands on it.
- Know that receiving the prize may take longer than normal as after we choose a winner we still have to go about finding the polishes.
- We will keep the winner updated on the polish hunt if they like.  If they want a surprise we can do that too!
- Feel free to edit your wishlist while the contest is running.  We will not look at them till after the contest is over. 
- A giveaway like this is new to us(and I don't think I've seen it any where else before) so please be patient with us if you see some flaws.
- If something is confusing you don't hesitate to ask. 

How do I make a wishlist to send?
- Make a Pintrest wishlist board.
- If you have a blog you may already have one on it, but a wishlist tab.  Send us that link!
- Create a Google Doc.
- Facebook photo album
- Tumblr entry
- Amazon wishlist.  If you have the Amazon app on your browser you can add stuff to your wishlist from other sites.
- Elfster
- If there's another way please tell us and we will add it to the list.

So here's to two years!  Oh and I guess Happy New Year...

  2. Happy Anniversary! Why did you choose this name for your blog?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 2 reasons. 1)I love Norse mythology. And there's something about a bad ass woman, flying around on her horse, choosing who lives and who dies in battle. 2)There's a sitcom called Frasier. In one episode his brother is high on drugs before going in to heart surgery and he confesses to Fraser:

      Niles: Remember when we were kids and I was wearing your opera cape and you pushed me down the stairs?
      Frasier: Yes.
      Niles: You didn't push me. I jumped. I was trying to fly like a Valkyrie.

      I don't know why but these lines are my favourite from the show. I wanted to create a blog name to give some indication what the blog was about yet still be creative. And because I had actually watched the episode close to when I created the blog the quote was still fresh in my head. Which led me to think the word Valkyrie does go with Varnished.

      I also just like the image of a majestic lady, on a majestic horse, with majestic nails :P

    2. Oooh, good one!! :D
      Hope this is not unrelated - it sort of makes me wonder: what's your opinion of a certain Mr Douglas Adams? I strongly feel you should be his admirer (hope I'm not wrong! :)).

  10. This giveaway idea is kind of genius. Congratulations on 2 years! Your blog is one of my favorite nail blogs ever! What started your nail addiction?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Awwwww thanks! I'm not sure exactly what started it but I can say the internet played a big part in feeding it in the beginning. Being able to look up and find things I normally wouldn't have known about just by walking into my local stores.

      Delete
  11. Happy Anniversary! I didn't know some of the answers so I went with what popped into my head first. Why not?

    1. Because of the catastrophic domino effect it will have on the environment. I don't think any of us want to live on a world where are water becomes combustible at 75°C.

  12. Congratulations! Here is my question: How many polishes do you have?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Last time I counted I had around 250. But I recently gave a bunch away. So It's probably around 230ish now. For a blogger I feel like I really don't have that many :P

  13. Since you know my favourite tea, what's yours?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It depends. If I want ice tea, I use Earl Grey. A latte, Matcha. And when I just want a normal cup of tea I lean towards green teas. My current fav is Organic Green Seduction from David's tea.

      Delete
    2. Ah, I love Earl Grey! Have you tried Lady Grey? It's one of the only teas I can stomach without adding milk (how very British of me!) It has orange and lemon oil added to it and it's heaven :)

      Delete
    3. Haha the only tea I'll put milk in is the matcha :P And no I haven't tried it, but I clearly need to :D

      Delete
  14. you girls are hilarious. what an awesome giveaway!!

  15. Happy anniversary!! Do you have any tips for new bloggers?? I've been a nail art blogger for a year now, never get comments and my views aren't huge...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you don't already, use other platforms of social media(facebook, tumblr etc). Also make connections. If there is a blog you like it's always good to comment somewhat regularly. When you run a blog you notice people like that are are more inclined to check them out. You can also find facebook groups and make connections and share your nail art and swatches there. Finally when using things like tumblr and instagram, always tag. That way random people can find your stuff. Hoped that helped a bit!

      Delete
    2. Thank you! I use facebook, twitter, and I'm trying to remember to use Tumblr. I don't understand instagram :/ Do you have any facebook groups you recommend?

  16. What a cool giveaway idea! What are some of the polishes on your wishlist?

    1. Rescue Beauty Lounge Anne.

      That is literally the only thing on my wishlist. I mean there are polishes that I want but if I don't get them I wont care. I really want Anne, and I am sad I don't have her. Especially because I also REALLY love anything that had to do with the Tudor dynasty. Double sadness.

  20. Thank you for this giveaway. It is amazing that you decided you wanted to help someone get what they want! Why did you guys decide to do it this way instead of the run of the mill I have this product do you want it?!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In real life most of us would rather get either money, or gifts we specifically ask for. And people do gift card giveaways all the time, so we're trying to switch it up. This is probably as personalized as it gets. Most people want to win prizes, but it this case YOU really do want the stuff.

  24. What is your favorite brand of polish? Indie or commercial

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. While I don't have loads of them A-England is my favourite indie followed by Literary Lacquer and Picture Polish. Add commercial brand it's a tie between OPI(although they are slipping a bit, I wish they tried to step outside the box more), and Berry M...and China Glaze............and Sinful Colors.......................and Butter London. Commercial is a tough one. I like so many for different reasons! :P

  25. This is the greatest giveaway ever! I had a lot of fun creating my wishlist (it's going to be so sad when I'm not the winner), so now it's your turn, what polishes and stamping plates do you have in your wishlists?

  47. Do you believe in ghosts or have you had any ghostly or spiritual encounters? I have. After my Dad died in 2012 a week before Christmas, one night me and my son were taking random pictures around the house, just messing around and we happened to catch 2 bright little orbs (spirits) in one of our pictures. I believe they were my Dad and my big brother visiting us :)

    ReplyDelete
