For the love of ManGlaze giveaway!

Hello ladies,

Welcome! Please join me in the For the Love of ManGlaze Giveaway. I have been planning this treat for you for a few weeks. The very sweet and undeniably masculine Marc from ManGlaze is partnering with painted Lady fingers for this giveaway. I can't deny that ManGlaze and painted Lady fingers go well together.

Here are the prizes:
Three awesome bottles and some swag.

Hot Mess: An in your face, silver glitter topcoat. It adds the glitter and removes the shine.
Matte is Murder: Matte black polish done up like only ManGlaze can.
Matte-astrophe: A topcoat that nullifies any shine. A perfect topping for a matte finish.
Swag: A Manglaze sticker and business card.

Click to enlarge the photos to view the distinctive bottle art.

Hot Mess matte, glitter top coat and a ManGlaze sticker.
Matte-astrophe and an artistic ManGlaze business card.

Matte is Murder black polish.

Please note: I have a separate prize package that I will ship to the winner. The bottles in these photos are from my review set. The winner will receive new, unopened bottles. The Matte is Murder prize bottle has the same contents but different art than pictured. The bottle label is yellow with a picture of a long arm and a fist. I didn't want to risk posing the winner's bottle above a snow drift!

You can learn more about these products by visiting Many thanks to Marc for working with painted Lady fingers to bring ManGlaze to the winner!

  1. Hello there! Please add me to this awesome giveaway. I am currently a follower, and you are definitely on my blogroll. You can check it out yourself at Also, if you don't mind please add me to your blogroll. =] I would greatly appreciate it.

    As for my favorite type of polish to try matte, are polishes with fine glitter, I am seeing how mattefying, this type of polish really brings out the glitter. As for the matte trend, it's starting to get old in my opinion, but who knows maybe 6 months down the line it will be brought back.=]

    Thanks again!

  2. I'm a follower, enter me please!

  3. Yay! I've been dying to try out Man Glaze, what a great giveaway!

    1) I'm a follower
    2) I have been avoiding the matte trend because ages a go I tried a matte grey (I remember it baing Maybelline's) and it looked cruddy. Now I might change my mind. I'd like to try out polishes with multicolour glitter as mattes.

    1) I am a follower, my email is st(dot)fx(at)hotmail(dot)com

    2) My favourite types of polishes to wear matte are pastel colours. I do like the matte trend, but I definitely prefer shine with most polishes, such as glitters. I've never seen a nice matted glitter to be honest.

  25. Hello! Nice giveaway!
    -I'm already your follower via Google frnd.cnn.
    -I never had a matte topcoat(can't find them in my country-nor the ManGlaze polishes and many more-) but it think I would like Nfu Oh 40 on black polish from what I saw on some blogs :)
    -I blogged about your giveaway here and
    -you are on my blogroll
    Thnx :)


  26. Mandatory:
    1) I'm a follower. :D

    Optional extra entries:
    2) I'm not a fan of matte creams, whatever the next step up is. Shimmer , I think? I feel mattifying a shimmer adds a LOT of depth which looks quite nice and a little frosted. (:

  27. I am a follower.

    My favorite matte nail polishes are shimmers, most of the time cremes just look too stark, like house paint or something. Most of the time I just use a matte top coat (ChG Matte Magic) but I have a few actual matte polishes. I found some of the old Maybelline mattes at my Dollar Tree recently and I was super excited.

    Thank you for having this contest!

    I'm a follower.

    Hmm...the matte trend. I have to say that the best thing about nail polish (in my opinion) is that it dries so quickly. I love layering over matte polish. My favorite one to layer ontop of is OPI Russian Navy Matte.

    You're on my blogroll:

  53. Wow, amazing prizes!!

    I'm a follower through Google.

    I love wearing super glitters or shimmers matte. It makes the sparkles look frozen!

    I blogged about your contest on my fledgling polish blog and you are also on my blog roll.
    Blog entry:

    I would love it if you would add me to your blog roll. I love having you on mine :)

    Here is my email:

    Phew, I think that's it!

  54. What a great giveaway! I follow via e-mail. My addy is asweetp2(at)yahoo(dot)com

  55. I just reently fell in love with matte polishes. The first time I put on matte polish, I wasn't sure I liked it because it was so different from what I'm used to. The finish grew on me, it complemented my fingers in a suprising way. Now I can't get enough!

    My new favorite is the "suede" finish which is matte with shimmer. I would love to have a matte topcoat for my shimmery nailpolishes!


  56. My favourite type of polish are currently pastels. But I have been DYING to try manglaze after seeing everyone swatches. It`s killing me that I can`t afford them. I think the matte trend is iffy, some people can pull it off, and some polishes dont suit it.

    abbylandd @ im a follower =]

  57. hi!
    i'm a follower through google.

    As to your question: I prefer to mattify something shimmery or foily or glittery, I feel that it's more interesting than a matte creme.
    In fact, ruby pumps matte is my favorite :)


  60. Please enter me! This is just AWESOME AWESOME AWESOMEEEEE!

    1. I'm a follower!
    2. I've tried LA Girls Matte Blue Twilight and, although I really love the dark navy blue colour, it doesn't seem to really be...MATTE MATTE? More like a satiny/velvet finish :)

  61. Hi, I'm a follower on blogger.
    My email is flavietta.g [at] gmail [dot] com.

    I love to mattify chunky glitters like China Glaze Fortune Teller or to put exagonal glitter on black nail polish and then mattify it all.

    I tweeted about the giveaway here

  62. I'm a follower via Google Friend Connect.

    I personally haven't tried matte polish and this is an awesome giveaway since ManGlaze is the first company I've heard of to release a matte polish! Based on the numerous posts I've seen on mattes, I kinda like the flaky polishes like the ones from Nfu-Oh when they are matte.

    I have you on my blogroll:

    I only own one matte polish (but I am SO DOWN with the trend :D) and it's actually Man Glaze's original matte black, The Death Tar! I adore the look of matte glitters though, I never thought it could be done!

    I think the matte trend is cool. I like the Khromes from China Glaze matte....they are totally diffrent when they are matte. I also like glitter nailpolish matte. After a couple of day's I sometimes make my nails matte just the see how that nailart/polish looks.

    I love the look of matte polish, particularly glitters and flakies, it makes it look like glowing embers! Unfortunately I've not tried mattifying anything yet myself, as I can't get hold of anything at all in the UK! My Sally's doesn't have anything and neither does the other beauty supply store I got to! We're very behind with the times here, there's only 1 holo (GOSH) that you can buy here too!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    I like mattes over flakies like the Nfu Ohs.
    Thanks for the contest!

  96. Oh man, I'm so excited about the prospect of winning this. I absolutely adore the trend of mattifying manicures and from what I can tell the man glaze version of this topcoat has the most velvety texture but I haven't been able to get my hands on a bottle. Right now I'm working with essie's matte topcoat- I really love it over basic black and darker cremes.

  97. I dream of owning Man Glaze, so thank you for this giveaway!

    My favorite type of polish to wear matte is glitters. Especially large pieces of glitter, they look really cool mattified. My glitter is in a clear base, so I put a coat of it over a dark charcoal creme before mattifying it. I think the matte trend is awesome and it's nice to have something new in the nail polish world because we hadn't seen anything as innovative as the whole matte thing in a long time.

    I posted about your giveaway on our blog: Nail Addicts Anonymous
    You are also on our blogroll. Hope you like our page and add us to your blog roll.

    Personally, I love matte and don't seem to understand why so many people I encounter don't like it. It's great to matte a glittery color and turn it into something completely new!


  132. hello! I am a follower of your blog & I love it! I have not tried any matte polish before but I am fascinated by this trend. :P thank you!

    my email:

  133. 1.I follow to keep up with painted Lady fingers.

    2.I don’t know if this count, but I don’t really like matte polishes as they are more difficult to paint as compared to shimmery polishes. I either stamp on matte polishes using Konad or use a matte transformer :P

    3.Linked you in my blogroll but I cant remember if you have commented in my blog or not. Link:

  136. for 2 entries:

    i'm now following your blog!
    and, i LOVE the matte trend. =) i don't own any matte nail polish (yet) but i am really really curious to see a dark green matte, as that would look awesome i think. =)

  137. Great giveaway! I am a follower and your fantastic nails are on my blogroll!
    So far I tried OPI You don't know Jacques matte (didn't like it) and OPI We'll always have Paris Suede (loved it), but I like very much mixed nails (shiny with matte tips, for instance).
    BTW I will be glad if you could add my nailblog to your blogroll!

    2) I love the matte trend and wish it would never end, cause I'm afraid of mattes getting htf and running out of supplies in a few years! My fav matte polishes are the Suedes, cause they have that little extra something going on, but I find a plain matte black like KO Flatte Black or Orly Matte Vinyl very sexy too.

  147. 1)I'm following your blog!

    2)I personally only own 1 matte polish, and that's Zoya Dovima. From looking around, I think I prefer matte polishes to be darker and more satiny looking. Also, I think the matte trend is great, but I don't particularly like the super flat, non-shimmery matte polishes.
