His & Hers Giveaway Winner!

Hello ladies,

Today, the winner of the the His and Hers Giveaway was selected! I will now present a tale of two turtles.

Meet our judge.
Behold, the bowl of 648 handwritten contest entries.
See what happens when Kermit the turtle is introduced to the scene.
Kermit is very sweet. He has a true warmth of expression and is a good listener.
He is such a philosophical turtle that he didn't want to choose one name. He believes in harmony and nail polish for all. He tried to teach us patience by sitting still for a very long time, a lesson perhaps of days gone by, before the invention of quick dry topcoat.

We decided to call upon the services of his more gregarious pond mate. May I introduce Mason?
Ladies, I got this one covered.
And he's off!
I never thought I would use the word quick to describe a turtle, but Mason was ready! He surprised us by turning around and heading towards the entries in the upper corner.
Mason is on the move.
He pauses for a moment...
and puts his foot down. Laura is the winner!

Mason relaxed in a pile of contest entries after a clear decision was reached. Thank you, Mason, for your decisiveness. Mason actually kept his claws on the slip of paper with Laura's name for five whole minutes. Many thanks to Kermit as well for sharing his wisdom and good feeling.

Congratulations, Laura! I was so surprised to see Laura's name chosen. I won a fabulous contest recently at her blog: Sawan. I had really wanted to do something nice for Laura and Mason made it happen! This was such an amazing drawing. Turtles do have the reputation for being sage creatures for a reason.

Many thanks to Kim from and Reviva Labs for sponsoring this giveaway.

A special thanks to my friend Sarada and her animal companions for supporting my love of nail polish.

Please stop by the Nubar California Dreamin' Giveaway. There are only a few days left to enter. Best of luck!

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. I saw turtles and came running! They are such handsome fellows...I could kiss them! What does a Turtle turn into if you kiss it? Maybe a hot Rock star guy. lol
