Giveaway Time!!!! 50 Followers!--Closed!

It's celebration time!  Earlier this week I hit 50 followers (now 58) on this blog and I'm just about to hit 100 followers (99) on my tumblr.  I think that calls for a celebration.  A giveaway celebration!

Here's the prize!



2 polishes by Quo by Orly.  Orly partnered with a Canadian beauty company - Quo last fall to start this line.  These polishes are exclusive to Canada and are therefore somewhat difficult for some of you to obtain.  I thought that would make them perfect for a giveaway! The giveaway is international!

Here's some more shots...






These are swatched from my own personal bottles not giveaway ones.

These polishes are truly gorgeous!  Amazing glass-fleck finishes.

Turquoise Midnight is supposed to be a slightly darker version of Orly's own Haley's Comet. It's a turquoise to blue shifting glass fleck.  Lots of variation of the shades of turquoise.

Celestial Star is also a gorgeous glass fleck finish.  Its glassflecks range from dark blue through indigo and to a deep purple. (Lol- inadvertant classic rock shoutout!)

I hope one of you will be happy to own these gorgeous polishes.

For anyone coming here from tumblr, unfortunately you need to follow me here also to enter but you will get extra credit for the tumblr follow also.

Good Luck Everyone!

Some Rules:
There will be one winner. I will contact them by email and they will have 72 hours to respond. This giveaway is International, however due to importing laws this excludes Italy and possibly others. If your country does not allow import of nail polish and you enter anyway, I am not responsible if package not received. In fact, for anyone, I will ship package but am not responsible if package goes unreceived.

  1. That's a great idea to choose a polish that might be hard to get for your giveaway! And some awesome colors too! <3

    I'm actually not listening to music while polishing. I tend to watch TV instead. Since I'm currently picking up my Japanese studies again, I'm watching anime in order to practice my listening comprehension ;)

  77. I watch tv usually, but I like to listen to LMFAO, Breathe Carolina, Lady gaga and Katy Perry

    ReplyDelete
  78. It has to be something light and airy or I start waving my hands about in time to the music = bad for polishing! So usually something slow like A Fine Frenzy.

    By the way, I clicked 'like' on the 'like the blog post' entry but I as I clicked 'enter' it came up with 'confirm'...I can't seem to get it back...is there any way to manually like this blog post on Facebook, just to make sure I did? Thanks!

    1. I don't think there is any other way for just the post. I have a 'like' Nox Nails on facebook in the sidebar.

      I'll be cross checking entries with peoples comments here so I understand the dilemma and your entry will count!! =)

  80. I like listening to musicals; I don't always match my polish to my music though...I usually listen to TV shows then (Psych, Numb3rs...I like Netflix...)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I find that I'm usually watching Friends or a basketball game when I do my nails, but if I'm listening to music it's probably Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, TI, or B.O.B. I like all types of music, in one car ride, I will literally change the station around from Christian music, to oldies, to hip hop, to classic rock to pop, but something about hip hop is inspiring to me when I'm doing my nails.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm more likely to have the tv on and it'll either be something on the History Channel or BBC America. :-)
