Giveaway winner!

No, I'm not going to show you the winner yet :) First, I'd like to tell you how I chose one. During the week I followed who entered and put everyone into a spreadsheet. Today I added another entry for those who entered and were in the first 50 followers. All together there were 53 valid entries. Here's the spreadsheet:

Then I figured, as long as I have everything in Excel, I might just pick a rondom number using that. So I used the formula for random numbers in Excel (=randbetween(1;53)if anybody wants to know). In the pic below you can see the result, and the formula in the cell window, so you know I didn't just make up a number. So, the winner is........... drumroll please.....

Ladies, thank you so much for participating! I'm all hooked now so I secretly started hoarding polishes for my 100 giveaway :)

Maybelline mini Colorama - Party Blue

This is my first Colorama polish. I bought it today, because it was on sale. I mainly went to a drugstore because yesterday I realized I don't own a dark blue/navy creme polish! Can you imagine?!? I bought one from Maybelline, but I realized it's a shimmer when I got home. Total fail *bows head in shame* I really should stop shopping in a hurry.

Anyway, that's not the polish I'm going to write about today. I also bought a light blue cream one - Party blue. I hate it! The brush is idiotic. It's too big, not flattened and spreads way too quickly when you touch the nail. All in all, the application is a PITA. It's a really goopy polish, so thin layers are impossible. I applied three layers, and you can see on the pics that it's still streaky. The photos are with top coat - it helped a bit, but not enough. I can't say if it dries quickly, because I removed it immediately after taking pics.

All pics are under artificial light - absolutely no natural light here today. I tried going outside to take at least a half decent picture in natural light, but my flash kept going off, and the pics without it are a dark blurry mess. Soooo not my day:)

Don't you just hate when you love the colour of a polish but it's totally horrible in every other way? Argh...

Sally Hansen - Sea and be Seen over Stargazer - 135

I wore this for a day and I had to remove it. The tipwear was horrible:(

Anyway - the base was Stargazer's 135 polish - a lovely dark shimmery turquoise. And I topped it off with Sally Hansen's Sea and be Seen - a blue and violet shimmery polish, but it's in an almoast clear base, so it's only a layering polish. I tried it once without a base and it wasn't opaque even with 5 coats.
