{giveaway}: fun fall colors for your fingertips

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED...THANKS!

i hate mondays.
you hate mondays.
we all hate mondays...
so why not kick off the week with a giveaway, right??

first things first...i'm a nail polish nut. seriously. it's an addiction i've had for a long time. i don't have a favorite brand. if it looks good, goes on good & wears good, then i'm hooked. i also owe a lot to blogging & the twit because my enabler friends often share their favorite colors, trends, etc. that word of mouth thing? it rocks.

anyways, about this giveaway...

i've been talking about this for a few weeks & i'm very excited to gift to one of my readers two of my favorite fall nail polish colors. both are by orly. i would have never tried orly polishes had it not been for mrs. wasp {coincidentally, she also loves qvc & has a love-hate thing for ulta...just like me}. mrs. wasp had tweeted about orly's birds of a feather collection. i took one look & i was hooked.

only two colors called to me:

{sea gurl}

&

{fowl play}

i don't usually get compliments about my nails, but since wearing orly polishes, people ask me about my manicure all the time! and, just so you know, orly polishes are dbp, toluene & formaldehyde free.

i want you to have fun nails & get compliments about your nails, too, so i'm giving away - to one of my lucky readers - a bottle of sea gurl, a bottle of fowl play AND a small bottle of orly's bonder {the best base coat ever!!}:


here is your mandatory entry for the giveaway:

  • what is your favorite brand, color, manicure type, etc. when it comes to nail polish? do you like following the trends? do you keep things classic? are bold colors your thing? all you have to do is tell me what you like about nail polish!! {please leave an email address with your comment if your blog comments are not set up to automatically link to your email.}

for extra entries {please leave each extra entry as a separate comment, thanks!}:
  • follow stuttering shell via google friend connect {it's found under the beachcombers tag. it also sometimes disappears for no reason, so refresh your page if you have to}.
  • like stuttering shell's facebook page.
  • follow me on the twit. {tweet me a shout out if you do!}
  • tweet about this giveaway. {please leave proof in your comment!}
  • blog about this giveaway. {please leave proof in your comment!}
that's SIX chances to win!

this giveaway will be open until 11:59pm EST on thursday, october 27th & the winner will be announced on friday, october 28th!!


in addition, this giveaway is for u.s. & canadian blog readers only. sorry, international friends.

I recently bought a few colors from Essie and I don't think I will ever go back to other nail polish...although I also like Sally Hanson's and Nicole. My favorite colors are shades of pink - especially Peach Daiquiri from Essie. Bright, bold pinks! I love to cook and bake, so I need nail polish that doesn't chip too easily. No one likes nail polish shards in their food :P

Girl, this is my kind of giveaway! I'm with you and don't care about the brand. If the color looks fun and it wears well, that's all that matters. I would have to say my go-to manicure is kind of boring. I love OPI's Bubble Bath with short square nails rounded at the edges. It goes with everything. My favorite summer shade is Essie's Mint Candy Apple and in the winter I absolutely love Lubu Heels from China Glaze.

I'm a big fan of both Orly and OPI. I'm currently wearing a great turquoise Orly polish with some nail art I did with a Sally Hanson nail pen and have gotten so many compliments. Thanks for the giveaway!

Whoa, those are fun!! I get gel nails, the kind that are hard, but not acrylic. And I tend to just get the pink gel so I can paint them myself. I love trends. And my new fave cuz it's cheap is the sally hansen express brand. These? look wicked fun! GIMME~!

I would love to win! Those colors are fab! My all time fave color would be Revlon's vixen. It makes me feel saucy. :) Which is good considering I'm up to my eyeballs in diapers and homeschooling! ha!

Not gonna lie, Ive been really into these darker colors for fall, and surprisingly Im obsessed with green... and purple. I have the idea that I should continue the trend of jewel tones onto my nails... but you can't pass up a great greige. Try RGB polish! I just got three bottles and Im obsessed!

I've taken to actually getting my nails done. $25 for a manicure use to sounds so awful to me because it would chip in a second. But now I get the gel for real nails mani and I'm in love! It lasts for about a month and I can't beat that. As for my toes, I do those at home with whatever color seems interesting that day.

I love the darker colors. I was at Sally's Beauty Supply this weekend and saw the Orly colors, but I've never tried their brand before so I didn't get any. I bought China Glaze's Ruby Slippers though...:).

I love nail polish. There's all sorts of pretty colors. I'm currently sporting pale pink, but I also love darker colors. I have bright colors too. I'm not too picky when it comes to nail polish. :-) The brands I currently have are Sephora by OPI, Sinful Colors, and Sally Hansen. I don't really have a favorite brand as long as they have neat colors!

I like Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in "tough luck" on my toes, Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in "frutti petutie" on my toes, and Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in "choco-latte" on my fingers. Love OPI too. Never tried your polish so that would be cool.

AH!! See this why I should stray from checking Google Reader even when I'm not writing everyone else is! Thanks for the shoutout! I love having you as my QVC accomplice! My favorite brand right now is Essie, but I'm just as much in love with Orly, Zoya, & Deborah Lippmann (curse her prices.)
My favorite polish of all time maybe Essie Tart Deco tied with China Glaze Go Crazy Red. I don't really follow the trends, I hate yellow nail polish and crackle polish makes my ocd skeeve out. I do love the occasional dark plum or navy, never black, I feel it's too harsh with my skin tone. No manicure is complete without Orly Bonder & Seche Vite Fast Dry. Even the toughest of glitters stay glued on for a week!
Shout out on twitter, and I am also following via Facebook and GFC! XX

My favorite brand is Zoya. I really like metallics right now, but I just started doing my nails so they're really a pain for me to apply. :( I like whites a lot too, both sheer and the stark ones that seem to get a lot of hate.

I like the brand ICE that I tend to find at Walmart. No favorite colors, but I tend to shy away from anything too crazy these days. I really this OPI shade I got my toes at my last pedicure though - it's like a reddish, purply pink... for manicures I usually just get a basic french manicure.
