Essie nail polish giveaway

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

As promised, I have a new giveaway for you today. It is, however, open to Canadians only, as requested by the sponsor. I'll have another giveaway for non-Canadian readers, so stay tuned :)

I was excited to get to know about Glowing Beauty, a Canadian online beauty store that offers lots of products from skin care to makeup, with many brands we don't normally have in Canada.

It is fair to note that their pricing is not at the competitive point, but like all things around here, we always have to pay more than the Americans for same products. However, the best selling point to me is that Glowing Beauty offer free shipping on all orders in Canada (except orders for one single nail polish). Also you can earn reward points with your purchase, which you can redeem in future purchases.

And today they sponsor this giveaway. You can win 2 Essie nail polish of your choice (shipped to you for free, of course), or if you are not into nail polish, you can get $25 gift certificate to use on the site (again, you can spend the whole amount on products, not on shipping cost).

Rules: you have to be a Canadian follower of my blog (or if I know you are a frequent reader from WP).

Mandatory entry: Check out Glowing Beauty and tell me which 2 Essie nail polish you are going to get, or which products you would spend the $25 on.

Extra entries: You can leave all entries in 1 comment.
- 1 entry: Like Glowing Beauty on Facebook.
- 1 entry: Sign up for Glowing Beauty newsletter on the right side bar.
- 1 entry: Follow me on Twitter and tweet about the giveaway. Please leave the direct link to the tweet. For those who asked before, you can get the direct link by clicking on the time stamp right underneath your tweet.
- 5 entries: Post about the giveaway on your blog and leave the link to your post.

Time line: The giveaway will start today (Tuesday, November 30) and end Friday (December 17) at 11:59PM ADT (Atlantic Daylight Time).

The winner will be randomly selected from all qualified entries (through and notified by Sunday, December 19. He/she will have 48 hours to get back to me to confirm the mailing address, or a new winner will be selected.

Have fun entering, and good luck!

    1) I'm a follower through GFC - GabZ1985
    My email address - gabz1985 at

    1) So many products to choose from! There's really only one Essie polish that really caught my eye and it's the Bahama Mama Polish, so I'd go for the gift certificate. I'd buy the polish with it, and the 3 Way Glaze from Essie as well. With the $4 left, I'd buy the California Mango 1/4 oz format, and would only have to pay $1.50 for these awesome products!
