Marvelous Monday: Spring Polish Picks AND a GIVEAWAY!!!

Yesterday it was almost 80 degrees here in Atlanta! I'm so excited because spring is just around the corner. And I want YOU to be prepared for spring which happens to include nail care. This is going to be fun!

I'm a huge fan of nail polish and even more so of their NAMES! Each season, I look forward to sharing my favorite OPI polish picks. Why OPI? It's the best. Longest wear. And it doesn't get old in the bottle. OPI especially has the best names. Some of my favorites include:

D.C. Cherry Blossom
Bogota Blackberry (great for fall, and my all time favorite polish)
Shootout at the O.K. Corral
Kiss on the chic
Suzi Loves Sydney (great for fall)
Berry Much In Love
I'm Not really a waitress
Catherine the Grape (good for toes in winter)

In case you can't already tell, I love painting my nails...well, that is, when I have time. Which is why I LOVE OPI's new line of "Paint & Go" polish. Target now even carries some OPI colors!

Without further ado, I am tickled pink to announce the SPRING POLISH PICKS for this month's giveaway....drumroll please.......

"You're Such A Kabuki Queen" (This is a pretty petal pink color. Just like a tulip! I love this one!)

"Are We There Yet?" (This is pale pink and GREAT for on the go - I've tried this and it's great. Dries quickly. Doesn't make a mess. Perfect for busy ladies!)

This is a picture of everything you will receive if your name is drawn! Good luck!

Also included in this giveaway is an ADORABLE scarf. I LOVE scarfs! You can freshen up an old outfit for just a few bucks. Here are just some of the MANY things you can do with this fun accessory...Take a bad hair day to FABULOUS in seconds! Tie around as a head band. I like to let the ties rest on my shoulder. FLIP an every day pair of jeans! Use this scarf as a belt. Throw on a top and flip flops and you're out the door in style! This is my very old, every day library bag. But, now it's a great on the go bag! Hint: your scarf doesn't necessarily have to match your bag perfectly. Mix and match them!

I'm first! I have to admit, I don't check up on this blog often enough...But I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who loves to paint my nails! Although my toenails are ALWAYS painted, a lot of time my fingers go by the wayside...Oh well. I'd love to win some new polish. =)

This is my first time commenting on this blog. I also put roof with a view on my facebook page. I love this site...there are always such great ideas and tips. I'm trying to step it up as a domestic diva so this is really helping. I really love the coupon advice since that's something I really want to master but I struggle with.
Thanks, Kristy

I love that this blog is able to practice faith as well as fun. Not enough people do that...I also miss the focus of the mani/pedi that I was able to have when we lived in MS. Here in PA we are still cold and not even thinking about our fingers let alone those toesies. Can't wait for Spring and the cool bright colors.

I love OPI, and I'm super excited.
I love your layout; I'm turned away from other blogs about nail because it's based on a black background and makes it hard to read. It's a small thing, but my eyes thank you!

FIrst time on your site so this is my first comment. Love the site! Love the polish your giving away. Just saw it at Trade Secrets the other day and almost bought it. Maybe it's a good thing I didn't since I could maybe win it. Also love the scarf. I wear scarves and shawls all the time so it would go to a good home. Plus i'm all into painting my nails so it will be well used.

I'm new to nail polishes, so I enjoy looking at pictures and reviews that you guys do on the blog. It isn't always easy to swatch the polishes before buying, so it's great to know what to expect before hand.

Brand New Gateway PC SX2800-03 Windows Vista Home 64bit with SP1 Intel Core2 Quad Q8200 4gigs of DDR3 for RAM Intel GMA X4500 Intergrated video (vga and hdmi outputs) 640 gig My friend just got this pc for Christmas. They were installing softwares. They must have downloaded a crappy software to get this error. The last software they installed and all the problems started after the install was iTunes. Probaly didn't get it directly from Apple and got it from another fake website or something. OR maybe he may have visited an adult site and gotten the trojan/virus. Heck I don't know cause the dang thing wont boot up. Here's what I've tried so far.... 1. changed bios settings to boot only from hd. 2. tried booting into safe mode, it'll restart cause it'll get stuck right at cscdisk.dll 3. tried booting to last known good config 4. tried the "Launch Startup Repair"... that tried to repair but went straight to BSOD after 10min. I don't even get a chance to get to the windows logo before it BSOD. Here is the error message: A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen. etc.... ***STOP: 0x00000ED (0XFFFFFA8004245CC0, 0XFFFFFFFFC0000185, 0X0000000000000000, 0X0000000000000000) [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
