My commitment to trinkets

Hello ladies,

I added a feature to painted Lady fingers. There is a new section in the left sidebar called Contests, Competitions and Giveaways Galore! There you will find announcements about giveaways and such happening around the nail blogging community. I am also including make up giveaways and etsy arts and crafts giveaways for jewelry or other trinkets.

For all those who love contests, please visit that section often. I am going to try to update it daily. All you have to do is click on the photo and you will be whisked away to enter the giveaway of your choice. Best of luck to each of you and have fun with it!

I often walk by these pretty white blossoms. I wanted to share them with you. Tomorrow will bring sunlight and a shimmering manicure.

Please let me know if this is a feature you will make use of and enjoy.

Happy painting, ladies.


  1. That's a good idea! The blogosphere really is giveaway land right now! :)

  2. Thanks, Sylvia! I have been wanting to help promote the giveaways in the nail community especially. I'm glad you like what I came up with. :)

  3. Yay!!! I love giveaways! I try so hard to keep up with them all but I found tons of new ones here!
    Also, I realized that I haven't been posting your giveaways in my weekly roundup because I haven't been entering them since I won your Migi Nail Art giveaway. I was just posting giveaways that I was entering. But I decided just yesterday that I will include any giveaways with nail polish that I find regardless of whether I'm entering or not. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings or leave anyone out. I just don't enter if I don't really want the prize or if I've already won from that person.
    Just for the record ALL of your giveaways have been amazing.
    And I LOVE my Migi Nail Art pens. I've tried to contact them about sponsoring a giveaway on my blog but no one has ever returned my emails. I still think they are great and don't get nearly enough attention.
    Thanks for keeping the standards high in the nail polish blogging world with your gorgeous posts and kind words!

  4. April, I'm glad I've helped introduce you to some new giveaways. You do a great job with your roundup posts. I really wanted to participate more with giveaways at other blogs (both entering and promotion). For whatever reason, it's easiest for me to keep track of posting them in my sidebar. I like how you have everything organized in your posts. Great presentation!

    I appreciate your compliments about my giveaways. I am so glad you won a prize here too! As long as you feel comfortable, you are more than welcome to enter other giveaways on my blog. There have been times people came very close to winning twice. I figure if Fortune wants a person to win again, who am I to stand in the way? ;)

    I admire your thinking about posting giveaways even if you aren't entering. I think I may put a little note in the upper left letting people know they can e-mail me to have their polish related giveaway posted. There may be some I want to opt out of entering because I am well stocked in the shades offered. I agree with you about approaching the issue in a community minded way.

    Thanks again, April. You are wonderful! <3

    The last I heard Migi Nail Art was still looking for a PR person. If I hear anything new, I will definitely let you know. I hope to be able to work with them again when they PR ready. I love their nail art pens too.

  5. I'd like to second April's comment about your high standards, gorgeous posts and kind words!
    I have enough drama in my real world life. I really don't care much for back biting. I've been out of high school way to long and life is way to short! Hugs to you and April!

  6. Wow, that's so kind of you and so convenient for us! Thank you! That's a definite service you're doing for the community.

  7. Sylvia: Thanks again! I'm glad you feel good about the content overall. It's always nice to hear. Some of my happiest memories are linked to nail polish, be it time spent with friends or family members or quiet moments of self care. I think that translates to my blog. Nail polish is visually pleasing and also relaxing for me. xoxo!

    jo.frougal: Thanks! I am happy it's something you will enjoy. <3

  8. I think thats a great idea! Thanks :]

  9. Fabulous idea! I am really having quite a time keeping up. But your blog is a real inspiration. I visit almost every day!

  10. Mercie13: Thanks so much for your comment. I am glad you are enjoying the new feature.

    Charity: Thank you! I'm glad this section will help you keep up with new giveaways. I appreciate your stopping by so often. <3

  11. Thanks so much for this new posting. I've used it several times. Haven't won anythiny yet but I'm hoping. What pretty blossoms. Springtime is magical and beautiful.

  12. Lucy, I am so glad these giveaway postings are fun for you. May Fortune smile on you in the form of delightful prizes. I took lots of flower photos today. You will be seeing them sprinkled in with my manicures. <3
