Smooth and Polished Giveaway Winner!

Hello ladies,

Today the winner was chosen for the Smooth and Polished Giveaway with the assistance of our impartial judge, Cybele the ferret.
Witness her expression of sheer resolve!
A tiny bowl containing about 500 hand written entries.

I stashed a little kibble at the bottom in case Cybele wanted a snack.
Cybele was ready!
First, she belly flopped over the entries.
Then she took a minor detour in the grass...
And circled back to give the entries more thorough consideration.
She began mixing them with her nose.
And dove into the pile of papers!
A bit of rolling about helped narrow the selection.
She shook the entries off...except for one!
The winner is cherrycola. However, she spells it like this: ch3rryco1a. Cute!

Cybele waved goodbye or perhaps she was requesting some tiny nail art. Thank you, Cybele!

Many warm congratulations to ch3rryco1a! Please stop by her blog, How Should I Presume? for lovely Konad nail art. Look for the occasional cameo from her kitty, Autumn!

Thanks to Skin MD Natural for offering bottles of their Shielding Lotion in regular and SPF 15 formulas to our lucky winner! I will be mailing the four discontinued polishes this weekend and catching up on all my other mailing as well.

A special thanks to Pixie Rose and her very agreeable boyfriend for helping to wrangle Cybele for the contest proceedings.

Happy painting, ladies!
