Edit (Sunday November 15, 2015 at 6:55 pm EST):
Congratulations, Chelsea W.! You’ve won my Hard Candy nail-polish giveaway! Please reply to my e-mail within 48 hours to claim your prize.
Thank you to everyone for participating. More fun giveaways are coming!
Hallowe’en, my favourite holiday, is tomorrow, so I’m giving my awesome Canadian readers a chance to win something fun. No tricks and all treats!
(Stay tuned later for future giveaways that will be open worldwide. You are appreciated and not forgotten, my international readers! This time, I’m keeping it local.)
I reached out to Hard Candy’s PR, and we teamed up to give you a prize that, to me, is better than chocolate or any candies (even though, yes, I have a sweet tooth – no denying that)!
Up for grabs is this cute set that houses 12 mini Hard Candy nail polishes in a wide range of finishes and colours.
Aside from giving you so many shades to choose from, what makes this particularly exciting is that there are perforated flaps covering each bottle.
You can open one flap each day to treat yourself to a little reward, or you can throw the “rules” away and rip open all the flaps in one sitting. It’s up to you!
And although it’s set up like an advent calendar, that’s not to say that you can’t enjoy this nail-polish set, even if you don’t celebrate Christmas. If you ‘celebrate’ nail polish and the joy it brings, that’s all the enthusiasm you need! 😉
Edit: This cute 12 Days of Nail set is part of Hard Candy’s new Holiday Collection that’s available exclusively at Walmart stores and on the Walmart Canada website starting the beginning of November 2015.
Read all the salient details carefully in this blog post to ensure that your entry is valid.
Thank you to all my readers, whether you’ve been visiting for years or you found me just a few minutes ago. You are all welcome at Swatch And Learn!

Selecting, Announcing & Contacting the Winner:

I’ll also announce it on most of my social-media platforms, as well as in this blog post before I e-mail the winner. The winner will have 48 hours to reply to my e-mail to claim the prize. Failure to do so will force me to randomly draw another winner.
Reminder for You to Protect Yourself from Scammers
Please be careful and avoid scammers who try to prey upon people during giveaways. Remember, I will never ask you to pay money for the prize. It’s 100% free. I also won’t ask you for confidential information. (I will only require the winner’s name and mailing address.) I also won’t end my giveaway earlier.
If anyone sketchy tries to contact you saying you’re a winner and you’re unsure, the safest thing to do is to check this blog post because I will publicly announce the winner before contacting you to say that you’ve won.
What Happens Next?
The winner will send me their mailing address, and I’ll pass it along to Hard Candy’s PR. They generously provided the prize, and they will send it to you directly.
Please add swatchandlearn (at) gmail (dot) com to your Safe list so my e-mail doesn’t accidentally go to the Junk folder.
Thanks for being an awesome reader!
