1st Blogaversary! Minnie's Giveaway :)




Giveaway! To celebrate my 1st year at Polish or Perish and to show my appreciation :) Keeping in mind that I am but a student, the prizes aren't very imaginative, but this is the kind of gift I love the most (where I can personally pick, I love gift cards!) so it goes along with what I'd like either way! First, though, a small announcement:


And now the prizes... there are 3 prizes! Instead of doing one grand prize, I decided to go for 3 equal prizes of $25 from Llarowe. Since Llarowe ships internationally and this is in gift certificate form, this is open both domestically and internationally. I may add more later on, so keep tuned!


a Rafflecopter giveaway

End date to enter the giveaway will be May 16, the last day of my finals, and I will post winners on May 17!

Thank you for your support this past year and I hope to continue for many more :)

<3 minnie

Happy blogiversary.

Not sure if it counts as an "indie" anymore, but I love A England. For another it has to be Dollish Polish, purely due to the Big Bang Theory range!

UKNailRunner said...

Happy Blogaversary :D

Enchanted Polish.

UKNailRunner said...

Jae Dee said...

There are so many awesome indie brands out there, it's hard to pick. But of the brands that I own, I really love my Dollish Polishes.

Silva said...

My favourite indie...would be WingDust! Such pretty colors...

tink said...

such a hard choice! it's a toss up between polish revolution & crowstoes for me.

Many thanks, Cindi
jchoppes[at]hotmail[dot]com

Melissa said...

Thank you for the giveaway! I've only tried two indie brands, KBShimmer and Pretty & Polished. I love them both but KBShimmer is probably my favorite.

MrsBaloui said...

I'm not yet a happy Indie owner - I cannot choose the best (they're all so gorgeous), and having only a small amount of money to spend on "beauty equipment", I need to be very picky - If you get the idea ;-)

I've looked at http://shop.llarowe.com - and price money might be used on "CrowsToes - Her Goose Got Cooked" or one of the Dollish Polish "Big Bang Theory Collection" (I loooove BBT *LOL*)

Thanks for inspiring me to remember, that beautiful nails is a girls best business card <3

Sarah Eubanks said...

Nerd Lacquer and Jindie Nails!

janneyt said...

Rach said...

Happy blogaversary!

My favorite indie right now is HARE polish, but I'd love to try Pahlish, too. :)

YennySweeps said...

Nail Pattern Boldness

shuzluva said...

I HAVE to choose? :D Ok, if I had to pick just one, it would be Picture Polish. The colors are just so delicious!

Cookie said...

Hmmm, tough question! I adore my bottle of Expecto Patronum from Dollish Polish, but I think I have the most from AEngland, so I have to call it a tie :)

Steph S said...

My favorite indie brand is Hare

Snookie Wegner said...

Happy Bloggiversary! And thank you for the giveaway. My favourite indie brand is KBShimmer; I don't think one of their polishes has been a dud. (^_^)

Andrea said...

Happy bloggiversary!

Sarah said...

Happy blogversary ^^

Unfortunately I have to say that I don't own any indie polishes, so I can't say which one is my favorite. All I know is that I am craving for "Lush Laquers"

Greetings
Sarah

Jammies said...

Thanks for the generous giveaway and a year of great posts! My fave indie is DifferentDimension. :)

hopeniks said...

Congrats on your 1st blogaversary! Thank you this giveaway and a wonderful year of blogging.

Mad Amy Ttik said...

Mistaken29 said...

CrowsToes Heartless!

Amy Griffin said...

Llarowe is an awesome prize. Gives people a chance to buy the polishes you guys show.

cin0287 said...

I would have to say Hare is my favorite indie.

unicorngirl said...

unicorngirl said...

Thanks a lot for hosting the giveaway! I love Llarowe, it's the only place I can find some int'l polishes. My fav indy so far is Cirque, but not sure if they count as "indy" <:/ so also going with Contrary Polish :)

otherwhitney said...

Pretty and Polished!

elyssadc said...

KBShimmer. :)

TropicalChrome said...

I haven't tried a lot of indies, but the Girly Bits polishes I have are very nice!

Kim Petrusak said...

I like LynBDesigns

whynoteveryday said...

I love Darling Diva :D

Congratulations on the anniversary!!! Thank you for this giveaway!!

vmatz said...

I'm sure I'm in the minority but I actually don't care for indies. I feel like they're all just variations on a theme (glitter bombs) and I'm not a huge fan of glitter bombs in general.
That being said, and I'm not sure these count as indie, I think cirque and picture polish have some absolutely BEAUTIFUL shades.

thanks for the giveaway!

Denise F said...

Sorry but I can't just choose one! A-England, Mentality and Nailnation is my top 3 at the moment!

NailsIT said...

Thanks for the giveaway!
Happy Blogiversary!!!

I love Pahlish, Girly Bits, Smitten and A England, just to name a few ;)

Thanks again!!!

maetea. said...

Thank you for having this giveaway! I love all of your nail pictures! I love Pahlish & KBShimmer & more!

auroragyps said...

I guess Cult would be my favorite indie polish company, since it's the only one I've tried and I did like most of the polish I got from them.

Pam E said...

Happy Blog Anniversary! OMGH! YAY! & I like Tilly Nail Polish.

Crystal said...

okay I am going to be totally honest here, out of my nailpolish stash which counts approx 700 bottles,( I have built that collection over the last 15 years) have zero indie polishes...time to give them a try I guess?

Nailant said...

Happy blogaversary!

I love indies, and if I have to highlight a few (can't do just one, sorry) it'd be Elevation, Enchanted, Girly Bits, Dollish Polish and Foxy Paws/WellNails :D

TikiBarbie said...

I love A England's holos.

Jessie and Alicea (Polish and Prejudice) said...

Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway! I only have 3 indie polish brands in my stash so far and have only tried two of those brands, so I'd say that my favourite indies are A England so far; as well as Cult Nails Wicked Fast top coat!

Aurélie said...

Hummm... hard to tell, I would say Jindie Nails

Deborah said...

I only own one Indie so I guess my favorite is Love Land Nail Paint :-)

Viktbloggerskan said...

I'm an indie polish virgin! ;-)

maiju.m said...

HARE Polish

thedalailamasnails said...

I don't have a lot of indies! Congrats on your blogaversary!!!

milktea said...

I love a-england if that counts as an indie brand. Otherwise, I really love looking (don't own any) at Contrary Polish's handmade polishes on the web.

Christina K said...

I've heard about a lot of indies, but I haven't personally experienced any myself!

LitLaur said...

Happy Blogiversary! It's hard to pick my favorite indie brand, but if I had to, I'd say Enchanted Polish.

Amy Starke said...

My faves are KB Shimmer and Pahlish, but there are so many awesome ones that I love out there and I'm sure many more I dont know about!

thanks for the giveaway :)

Denise Hanuschak said...

I love all Llaroew lines!

Natalie said...

Colleen Boudreau said...

I don't have a favorite indie.

SusieL said...

The only indie I've tried is Cult Nails - great polish! I'd love to try one of the indies that Llarowe carries. Thanks for the giveaway!

rachlovespenguins said...

Thanks for the giveaway!
I'm not sure I can choose a favourite, but being a huge Doctor Who fan I'm really enamoured with some of the Nerd Lacquer shades. :)

Hoo Äm said...

Hare... Smitten... Aphrodite.. can't decide ahh!

triceratops said...

Haha that's so hard! My favourite indie brands are Girly Bits, KBShimmer, and NerdLacquer. I couldn't pick a favourite indie polish, though!

Sara said...

Hare Polish, hands down. Never been disappointed with a bottle from Hare!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Lillian Burrow said...

Love your blog! And great great giveaway. How do I choose a favorite Indie? I just made a purchase at KB Shimmer, so today I guess it is KB Shimmer.

Michelle Ramos said...

Picture Polish

Abigail Sharik said...

I've never tried an indie but I am just dying to try one

Lucía Valencia said...

Pahlish!

Christina said...

Haven't tried any indie polishes yet since I'm fairly new to nail polish. Happy Blogiversary!

Diane M Gooding said...

I love Pretty & Polished

Sara said...

It was Sparkles by Julie but she just closed down. I've been quite taken with Enchanted lately.

Ceece said...

Lush lacquer!!!

Caro Shu said...

Girly bits! Thank you for the great giveaway!

Elmarie Venter said...

I love Jindie Nails and Ninja Polish!

Thanks for a great giveaway!

melodyj(at)gmail(dot)com

Katie said...

I love A England. The colors are so beautiful!

lilacsrip said...

My favorite indies are Smitten Polish and Hare Polish!

Jiin-Yu said...

I don't have any, but I've been really intrigued by Picture Polish! Thanks for a great giveaway!

Malin said...

I am hopelessly in love with Lynnderella, they are hard to get over the ocean though!

Kat said...

My favorite indie at the moment is Candeo Colors Deep Space. It lasted a whole week on my nails without chips, and I work in a preschool .. so you can only imagine the kind of wear and tear it stood up to.

Casey King said...

I don't own any indies yet! I have my eye on a lot of them though.

Adaira McCrummen said...

NerdLacquer is definitely one of my favorites. Enchanted Polish is up there as well. xD

Of those two brands my favorite colors are Octopus' Garden by Enchanted and Decidedly Unlike Tea by Nerd.

Emily said...

I'm really new to this, but A-England has such beautiful colors.

papercranesx said...

Thanks for the giveaway chance!

Wow hard to pick.. Gloss n Sparkle, Femme Fatale Cosmetics and NerdLacquer are among my favourites (: dying to get my hands on their creations!

Priscilla said...

Thanks for giveaway! My favorite indie brand is Contrary Polish.

Nicolle Heisserer said...

My favorite indie... I think if you twisted my arm to pick just one, it'd be Pretty & Polished!

honeycherry18 said...

Congrats on the blogaversary! And thanks for hosting this giveaway. :)

FedoraHarp said...

Oh gosh, I don't know if I can choose a single brand as my favorite indie! Off the top of my head maybe Enchanted Polish, since I think they have the most polishes that I want to buy (in other words, every single one of them).

Ida Rose said...

Wonderful giveaway! Congrats and thank you very much!

julyjade24 said...

I love Happy Hands' Motherboy. Chockful of pastel satin glitters in green, aqua, baby blue, pink, and lavender and it's perfect over any color :]

Unknown said...

Although I don't own any indie polishes right now, if I had to jump on the bandwagon, I would choose Lynnderellas!

Nails and a Westie said...

It's so hard to choose just 1 fave indie, but.. mine would have to be D & R Apothecary. I own like 40 of her polishes (but to be fair most of them are minis)! Thanks for having this excellent giveaway!! :)

Holly said...

My favorite indie is Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum. :)

Brooke said...

My favorite indie brand is probably either A England or piCture pOlish =)

The Lacquer Tracker said...

Other than my own indie brand (Pirate Polish), I'd have to say Nerd Lacquer and Dollish Polish- those were the very first indies I ordered, and I immediately fell in love. They also inspired me to start making my own lacquers!

Brouillon de fille said...

Lush Lacquer is my fave. Thanks!

KayJay at Refined and Polished said...

KBShimmer is my fav. Thanks for the opportunity!

S said...

I think Rainbow Honey is my favorite indie brand. :)

Great giveaway! I'm always disappointed when I get excited for a giveaway then find out at the bottom it's not open internationally, so thank you! My favorite indie brand of polish is always changing but right now it's probably jindie nails.

KE said...

My favorite is Enchanted Polish, when I can get my hands on it!

Kari said...

It is hard to pick but I love A England's! Their formula is amazing every time!

Patricia Faria said...

Happy blog Anniversary! :D

My favorite indie is Cult Nails!

The Little Things said...

I have never tried an indie polish before...

joanna_lacivita said...

not sure if either of these would count, but my fave "indies" are probably cult nails or picture polish!

Vedrana Brankovic said...

I don't have much experience with indie polishes, but from what I had a chance to try, my favourite is NailsIT.

I've only tried 2 indies so far- Hare and kb shimmer. I love them both. My bank account is not happy that I've caught the bug...

Greenapple said...

Oof hard question! I probably have the most bottles be Palish, though I love the ones I have from Lush Lacquer, too!

Vedra said...

I especially like A-England (holos!), though I'm not sure if they even count as indie - the glitter concoctions of true indie brands very rarely catch my interest, gotta be a stellar combo ;)

Gio Siemens said...

It's a toss up between Enchanted Polish and Pretty & Polished.

Katie said...

I love A England!

Ashley Rexrode said...

I love lush lacquer and KB nails

Adriannasmommy26@yahoo.com

Candeo Colors

Hana said...

I only have a few indies, so I don't really have a favorite... A lot of them are really beautiful though.

Em said...

My favourite indie.. that's a hard one! I'd probably have to say HARE polish.

Miskate said...

I think my fave is Lucky 13 Lacquer! It's so hard to pick though!

Jill said...

I haven't tried Jinsoon, but really want to, is that an indie polish? :)

Unknown said...

My favourite indie would be A-England...unfortunately they don't have free worldwide shipping anymore. :(

Olga said...

I have never tried any indie polishes yet!

autoxchica said...

Lynderella!
