Winner of HPB Giveaway

On New Years Eve I received the BEST email ever!
I had won 3rd prize in the Hobby Polish Bloggers Winter Giveaway !

I got the email at like 11pm so rang in the new year in a fantastic mood!!
Last New Years Eve my son was admitted to hospital and it was a very stressful and upsetting time and the rest of the year didn't seem to go much better.
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come in 2014!!

I had a choice of a $100 voucher for Llarowe, Ninja polish or a paypal transfer of the money.
I choice Paypal transfer as I had my eye on some polishes from TNBL.

Here is what I spent my winnings on.....

After a LOT of research I found these beautiful Color Clubs! They are Holos but are not part of the holo hues collection so work out at like £3 from TNBL!

Here is (In no particular order) Fashion Addict, Revvolution, Worth The Risque and Wild At Heart.

I saw these and couldn't resist them really. I didn't get black or white as I already have some from the Born Pretty Store but on reflection I should have bought new ones as the ones from the Born Pretty Store are crap.

I also bought a few top and base coats (not pictured)

I had a massive problem ordering from TNBL as it just wouldn't go through but somebody talked to me the whole time online, for around 4 hours, no joke!
As an apology for their site not liking me they gave me a free Color Club polish and bumped my shipping up so I would get them the next day (I ordered at nearly 6pm!)
I thought that was really good customer service as i have had problems with other sites and they don't seem to care. Way to go TNBL!

These are really good stripers. Stay tuned for a nail art with some of this stuff soon.....

What do you think of my choices? What would you buy if you won $100 (about 58 GBP)


  1. Congratulations! What a great buy - love the CC's. I think at the moment I would be waiting for the new OPI Brazil Textured Sand polishes and probably some of the 12 in the creme range (who am I kidding, I want them all.....)

    1. OoOooOoO that would have been temping but i couldnt wait lol I am so impatient!

  2. well done jade
