Update (August 1): Congratulations go out to Jan! You’ve won the giveaway! Please check your e-mail and claim your prize within 48 hours. (I sent the e-mail at 12:17 am Eastern.)
Thanks to everyone for participating, and stay tuned! You know that I’ll be organizing another giveaway for you.
As you know, I had been planning this OPI Germany Collection giveaway for quite some time.
I teamed up with OPI PR and chose July 25 well in advance (because today marks Swatch And Learn’s 2-year blogiversary)!
But I had no idea that on Monday July 23, when I got home from work, I’d find out ridiculously bad news about Sinful Colors that left a bad taste in my mouth! (You can read all the details about it in my blog post.)
I appreciate the support, advice, and information that you’ve all provided, but for now, I won’t be discussing what I plan to do or what I have done about it in public. When I’m ready, I’ll keep you all posted for sure.
(Normally I reply to every single comment left on my blog posts, but please understand for that post…at least for now, I won’t be able to reply to those just yet. Know, though, that I am reading all comments you’ve left in that post.)
Edit: Please note that I have unpublished that post for a reason. And, at this time, I won’t be talking about the incident. My readers won’t be kept in the dark forever. Thanks for understanding!
After that drama, I considered postponing this giveaway, but I’m not going to let that taint something positive and something that I’ve been looking forward to doing for a long time and had put effort into organizing. Plus I didn’t want to disappoint my loyal readers who have stood by me and continue to do so. (Seriously, I am amazed by all your support during this difficult time!)
So…here it is! The huge giveaway that I’ve hinted at on many social-media platforms leading up to today!
Canadians, enter to win the entire 12-bottle OPI Germany Collection!
Please read the post for information on how to enter.
When: Now until July 31 at 11:59 pm (Eastern)
Who Can Enter: Canadians only. (Sorry! I will try to organize something international.)
How to Enter: Leave a comment telling me about anything! (e.g. Did you watch the new Batman movie? What’s on your nails? What makes you smile?)
Prize: The entire 12-bottle OPI Germany Collection!
(Psst! If you want to see the press release for it or any of the swatches I did for 6 of the shades, click here.)
- One entry per person (regardless if you comment more than once)
- I’ll select the winner using Random.org & the winner will have 48 hours to reply to my e-mail to claim the prize. (Failure to do so will force me to choose another winner.) I’ll e-mail the winner on August 1. After I receive your reply with your name and address, I’ll forward that to OPI PR so they can send you the nail polishes directly!

Good luck, everyone!
Edit: It totally made my day when Trade Secrets wished me a happy blogiversary!
