Follow the Unicorn Contest!

Hello ladies,

Possessed again by the spirit of whimsy, I bring you the Follow the Unicorn Contest! I'll let the unicorn transport you to the giveaway. 

I happened upon four Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Salon polishes from the Spring 2009 line. These are somewhat mythic in nature. These bottles are brand new and untested. I will be using my own polishes to show looks during the contest period.

Night Hydrangea



Beet Stain

Here is a little reminder that there is always a bit of unexpected magic waiting for you. The winner will receive all four Sally Hansen Salon polishes plus the unicorn figurine. My apologies that I can't include the giant bull frog. You will need to find your own magic frog locally.

I put this little giveaway together in gratitude for my followers and subscribers. At the time of this post, the number of followers to painted Lady fingers is close to 250. I have been having such a wonderful time blogging. I truly enjoy sharing the looks I create, reviewing polishes and treatments as well as reading and answering comments. I will do my best to offer treats when I can. You ladies are wonderful! Thank you. 

The Follow the Unicorn Contest is open internationally for followers and e-mail subscribers. The contest runs through November 3rd. 

Here's how to enter:
1) Become a follower or e-mail subscriber of painted Lady fingers. If you are currently a follower or subscriber, that certainly counts! I appreciate it! Please let me know in the comments which option you choose for keeping up with painted Lady fingers. 1 entry.

Optional extra entries:
2) Tell me about a polish you are coveting. It can be a hard to find color on your wish list. It can even be a color or formula from your imagination. 1 entry.

3) Blog about the contest.  Please provide a link. 2 entries.

4) Tweet about the contest.  Please provide a link. 1 entry. 

5) Have painted Lady fingers on your blogroll or add painted Lady fingers. Please provide a link if I haven't already commented on your blogOtherwise please remind me. 1 entry.

You are welcome to put all your entries in one comment or return to the contest post with comments for each entry. Either way works for me. Your entries don't have to be sequential. Enter in any way you like whenever you like before the end of the day November 3rd. For the ease of your contest host, please include your e-mail with your entry.

    I'm a follower.

    In France, we don't have China Glaze or OPI Halloween kits or X-mas kits...I dream about having a nice mermaid blue lagoon look on my nails with little sparkles...just like the Nfu Oh Nail polishes...
    By the way,you're on my blogroll too.

  23. hey girl

    Im already a follower and keep up with you through blogger

  24. Oh my goodness, Diana, you do the cutest and most creative things. I LOVE that frog! And of course, the mythical unicorn is so appropriate for this giveaway.
    Alrighty! I'm already a follower for the first one.
    And a polish I'd like to get my hands on? Mmm, although I'm trying to resist them, I've been eying the OPI Holiday collection, I really like quite a few of them. I probably won't be able to hold out. Also, I NEED Essie Greenport and Misa Dirty, Sexy Money and can't find either in stock, like, ever. ;)

    I posted about your giveaway on my blog:

    I would love to have Color Clur wild at heart

    my mail:

  87. Entry 1 : follower
    Entry 2 : An entire line of the vibrancy and pastelness of CG For Audrey. That sounds confusing, but I'd love a lilac, an orange, an entire pastel yet vibrant rainbow the same as Audrey. I love that polish most of all and would have nothing short of a girly spaz to have others like it

  88. Entry 1: I am a follower. :) I hope I'm not too late!
