Giveaway Winner Revealed...Plus New Plates!

Did you enjoy the Christmas Eve post? This was the little project that I was working on that I alluded to a few posts back....I did a theme or two every time I changed my nails for most of the month of December and I think I did three on the day of Christmas Eve to finish it off...and still had more thoughts in my head of mani's I wanted to post for more of the poem but just ran out of time! I had plans of doing posts for each of the manis shown but chances are, it may not happen, so if anyone is reallllyyyy wanting to know a plate used in one of the images, or a base colour or anything, leave a comment in this post, or the Christmas Eve post or shoot me an email, and I'll be glad to let you know!

I know some of you are anxiously awaiting the results of my giveaway which ended last week but first I wanted to show you my Christmas gift to me that arrived a few days before Christmas.

Some of you may know that Shirley over at Dashica Beauty Shop ** released a bunch of new image plates a few weeks ago; my order arrived December 22nd. I was thrilled when I got to looking at them when I seen a bunch of the full size images are perfect for allowing the base coat of the polish to show through which is right up my alley right now...this was one of my many, many suggestions to her...I'm sure she got tired of hearing from me with all my image plate suggestions!

As I'm getting more and more into layering and different polish finishes but am a stamper at heart...these full size images allow the best of both worlds! I love to use full image plates when stamping as they are so simple and quick to stamp onto your nail especially when you don't have much time to do your nails.....which is my life most of the time to be honest!

Started with a base of Spa Ritual Solitude.

Added one coat of KleanColor Holo Chrome. Hello holo! Wowzers!

Stamped using Konad black special polish using image plate SdP 47.

Added random dot of L.A. Girl Disco Brite Platforms for colour interest. Topped with SV. This image is perfect for layering, don't you think? To me, the polish and layering possibilities just using this image are endless...never mind the numerous other images that there are on these plates. Fantastic!

Now onto the giveaway winner.....thanks to everyone who entered this giveaway and for checking out my blog! There were 234 comments left on the giveaway post...there was the odd duplicate and some gals commented several times with updates...but once everything was tallied, there were 435 *ballots*. I used to pick a winner...unfortunately, I'm not computer savvy enough to figure out quickly how to take a screen shot of the results, cut, paste and post it, but I did take a pix and this is who was chosen:

Congrats rock-or-not!

An email has gone out to rock-or-not and hopefully she will reply in the 72 hours or this post will be updated. Thanks again to Beautiful Scratchers who donated some of the image plates for the giveaway...the rest of the plates and polish were paid and supplied by me!

Edit: I did hear back from rock-or-not and her package will be mailed out soon!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! It's a very busy time of year for my family but hopefully, New Years long weekend will be a little more relaxing!

Thanks for looking!

Edit: Feb 27 2012: rock or not emailed that her package has been received!
