Ta-dah! Tuesday - Nails inc goody bag giveaway!

Hey hey. I haven't forgotten you all, honest. I'm feeling a lot better now, but even in the midst of feeling grotty I did haul my bones out once last week. Nails inc got in touch with me and asked me to go along to a consumer focus group they were having at their head office. All I had to do was have a free manicure treatment beforehand, then talk about nails for a couple of hours. Plus, cash and goody bag were promised, so obviously I'd have to be at death's door to have turned that down. 

Anyway, because I'm the caring, sharing type, and to say thanks to everyone who's stuck with the blog for a while - plus hello to new followers - I have a goody bag of my own to give away. 


Kensington Caviar speed dry top coat - new
'Tate' - red nail polish - new
Crackle effect 'Hoxton' and 'Camden' polishes in purple and turquoise - new
Mustard nail polish 'Hampstead Gardens' - used once - I love this colour but it doesn't suit me so have chucked it in as an extra.
Prize value approximately £50.

I'm trying out a new way of running competitions as this way means I don't have to scribble on little bits of paper! Hopefully the Rafflecopter widget will make things easier. [There is no obligation to enter more than one way]. I haven't tried it before though so let me know if it doesn't work! Usual rules apply - open worldwide but for blog followers only. ***NOW CLOSED***WINNER HERE****

  2. I am kind of on the fence about Halloween. It's probably more fun if you are a child or have children. As for unwanted trick or treaters -they can jog on!

  3. Glad that you're feeling better! I *think* that I did the entry right. It was all very sci-fi. : ) And on that note, yes...I LOVE Halloween. Oh boy, do I.

  6. I am so glad to hear you are feeling better, I bet it was all that Rosehip syrup!

    Yes please I would like to enter your competion and what a boost to have a free manicure to pick your mood up a notch.

    I celebrate Samhain rather then Halloween, so yes but I don't agree with trick or treating.

  11. I've entered! I love Nails Inc so much. I love Halloween, but I think it's more the time of year and being able to wear really vampy lipstick more than anything actually spooky!!x

  23. Welcome back to the land of the living, Lakota! That day out couldn't have been more up your street.
    Halloween? Not interested in the slightest, I celebrate life daily, not when I'm told to. xxx

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love Halloween even if in my country is just a commercial celebration without any genuine feelings, only few years ago only adults used to party on that day, it was the excuse for many girls to wear make up and sexy/witchy clothes.
    But I'm quite gothic in a sort of Addams family's way so even if my daughters want the carved pumpkin and the sweets I tend to dress more normal than usual!
    Love xxx

    ReplyDelete
  25. Would love to win the nailvarnish, always like to have my nails and especialy toe nails done.

    I love halloween, have grown some pumpkins this year. Will carve one and pop it on the doorstep. We get a few children round and I am happy to give some sweets. PS I dress up too to answer the door!!

  28. Oooh lovely giveaway! I'd love to win :)

    I am neither a lover nor a hater of Halloween. I used to like it when I was at uni, but now it kind of passes me by without me really noticing!

  30. I love Nails inc :-)
    I used to love Halloween for all the parties when a student, but it has generally passed me by for the last 10 years. I'm too old for it to have been a part of my childhood - things have changed since the 80s/early 90s.
    I follow you in my Google reader

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really like Halloween!
    Probably because I didn't get to celebrate it very much as a child. *hahaha* Some years I dress up for fun others I can't find the time. But I always love to go out and see other peoples costumes.

    P.S. Awesome giveaway
    Those polish shades are totally cool.

  32. Love Nails Inc polishes, that red is such a perfect Autumn colour :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. ... I can take or leave Halloween, though I do like having sweets in the house ready for trick or treaters(and me!)

  34. Hi Lakota!

    I won't enter because I never paint my nails (shock/horror). Wanted to say hello though, and to tell you I have referred back to your Halloween cake post. The PTA do a big party every year, its quite good really. The boys love Halloween, so I have been making more of an effort. I can see why some people dislike it. I'm not great with 'planned fun' generally.
    I'll let you know how I get on with the cakes.

  35. GFC follower as Szappanbubi thus I would like to be entered for these awesome beauties!

    I/we/ don't celebrate Halloween, but I love the idea of wearing scary costumes :)
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh I'm definitely up for this! I think it was 'Tate' that was my first Nails Inc polish which I got free with a magazine (I love it when Nails Inc does that!)

    You probably know where I stand on Hallowe'en! I am absolutely crazy, head over heels, in love with it! I swear I should have been born an American.. sometimes I wish I was! I just love every single aspect of Hallowe'en (apart from the slutty costumes!) I like it spent at home surrounded by Hallowe'en decorations and a glowing Jack-O'-Lantern or out at the pub with mates! I am definitely looking forwards to this Hallowe'en though, we leave for Edinburgh on Friday! YAY! :D

    Thanks for this rather generous giveaway and I am so jelly that you got to go get a free manicure! I've never had one in my life but they look so relaxing! xxx

  37. I've been following you only for a little while. But I would love to win a cool pack like this.

  39. I'd love to win, I've only just re-started painting my nails this year, after not bothering for about 10 years, so my nail varnish collection is a bit sparse!

  40. Halloween is getting bigger here in Australia, but not so much in this little house. Last year I hung a neon skeleton from our front gate only to find it decapitated less than an hour later! Not sure if we'll be joining in the 'fun' this year.
    Glad you're on the mend Lakota x

    Oh forgot to leave a Halloween comment - sorry! I love how Halloween gets kids excited about dressing up and I much prefer handmade costumes. However not a fan of greedy toerags that just want extra sweeties!

  65. Oh, and I quite like halloween - I used to love it when I was a student as we'd all stay up all night watching scary movies, whereas now it's spent getting freaked out by massive teenagers "trick or treating" at all hours.... I'm such a grouch!
