My first giveaway!

Hey everyone! Today I'm starting my first ever giveaway, kindly sponsored by Born Pretty Store. I would like to give them a huge thankyou for doing this for my blog!

Giveaway rules:
  • There will be one prize - a $20 gift card to spend on whatever you want at bornprettystore.com (and remember, they have free international shipping!)
  • Entrants must be 18 years or older, or have parental permission in order to enter
  • The winner will be chosen randomly using Rafflecopter, which uses random.org
  • Whoever wins must respond within 48 hours of me choosing, otherwise I will pick another winner
  • The closing date is 14th Feb at 12am

  • EDIT: The option to 'leave a blog post comment' must state which post of mine you like most and/or what you would like to see more of on my blog
  • Good luck everyone!


I decided that I would make this giveaway for a gift card, rather than choosing your prizes for you, as I know that most of you will probably prefer that! Here are a few options of what you could get with your prize:

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love all the Then & Now blogs.. you have no idea how good they are to those of us just starting to play with making our nails uber pretty... (seriously... the only blog my first few attempts would have been appropriate for, would be the "Nailed It" Meme blogsite!). Thank you for sharing those. Fave nails so far this year are the birthday card inspired ones!

    ReplyDelete

  42. I'm so glad I came across your blog. I think it was the buzzy bees that really sold me on it, and I love the way you photograph your nails.

    My favourite post so far is definitely the owls in love. They're just so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have 2 favs. The paisley nails you just drew. I could have sworn they were a stamp, color me shocked. :D And I love your owl post you did about a week ago. I loved them so much I re did them for a contest on Instagram. :D

    I love seeing your then and nows and anything that you drew by hand so keep up the good work!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. My favourite post of yours is this one:

    http://onenailtorulethemall.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/nude-flowersreturn-of-matte-attack.html

    Why? I love the matte look & I love the flowers & I re-created the look, and it has to be one of my favourites! Stuuuuunning!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love your valentine day post http://onenailtorulethemall.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/valentines-has-come-early.html?m=1 Actually I love all your posts :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I recently stumbled across your blog whilst I was looking for other British nail bloggers, and with such an awesome title I couldn't resist yours. I've read quite far back through your blogs but obviously can't remember them all! My fave of the more recent ones is this Then and Now mani:http://onenailtorulethemall.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/then-and-now-week-6.html because I think it's simple and really effective. I hope to do it myself someday, when I'm a bit better at nail art (I'm still SUCH a newbie!)

    I don't know what else I'd like to see as I think your posts are brilliantly written, and your manis imaginative and colourful and fab. So I guess more of the same, please!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I LOVE your Birthday card nails, they're spot on! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love your barry m nail efffects swatch!! I'd love to see more Green Manicures :) xx

  51. I love how you focus more on nail art rather than just swatching. I'm a rather new follower and loved your Then and now, week 5 where you had bumble bees and strawberries. Adorable!

    I hope you keep your focus on cute designs and almost comic book styles. Swatches can be found everywhere!

  53. I love your owls most recently, but your Christmas manis were fab! Do you use a double top coat? I love your top coats. What brand do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I loved a lot of the stuff that you did during the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge, especially the Tribal design that you did. It was amazing how much detail that you packed in without it being too much. And even though they aren't on the blog (at least I don't think they are...) I love the pirates!! I would like to see more (not more you already do it so just keep it coming!) nail art by hand. Very inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love your Volkswagen Campervan mani: http://onenailtorulethemall.blogspot.hu/2012/12/vw-campervans.html :))

    ReplyDelete
  56. It's really hard to pick a post that I like the most because your ideas are amazing! I've perused your blog previously but for some reason never followed? Wondering why!
    Anyway I'm definitely a new loyal follower and I want to see more of what you always do, because it is awesome.

  59. I love your then and now posts!! its great to see how much you've improved, especially as I'm new to nail art myself! I see all these perfect nails and I compare myself to them and think I'm not very good, but seeing where you've come from and where you are now really inspires me to keep going! :) so thanks!! xxx

  64. I love your rainbow gradient nails with the paisley stamping. Paisley is one of my all-time favorite patterns. Also, I can't wait to try the PVA technique! I love glitter polish but I hate having to use so much acetone remover to get rid of it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love your rainbow paisley nails! It's such a fun pattern and it reminds me of middle school (when we all just HAD to have the vera bradley printed bags). You were actually the first nailstagram I followed on Instagram :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I loved loved the textured nail polish post--it was very unique and you usually post stuff that I don't find anywhere else!

  67. I love all your nails! I go to your blog when I need inspiration for my nails!

  70. I love your paisley ombre post that you created with a gel pen. So innovative, and really makes it easy for other people to try!

    ReplyDelete
  71. So many! But if i must choose, the one with inspired patter from a cup with trees (light blue and green). It was so similar to the original design! I was so amazed with how well you got the pattern on your nails, specially on your left hand
    I'm right-handed so for me that's impossible haha

    ReplyDelete
  107. Great giveaway! As I've told you on Tumblr before, you're my favourite online nail artist, your designs are beautiful, and I love the fact that your nails are not REALLY long like most nail art I see, since I have shortish nails myself and I love seeing designs which I could try myself on my little nails. Bravo!

    My favourite post of yours is this:
    http://onenailtorulethemall.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/new-barry-m-textured-nail-effect-2013.html
    I'm obsessed with Barry M, especially their special effects polishes, and your blog was the first place I saw these texture polishes, and they look amazing on your nails. :) I'd love to see tutorials, even just short ones which show the progress of your designs.
