Enabler Alert!

There's been a burst of colour shift/duo and multi chrome polishes released lately, not to mention holo versions too! KBShimmer, Crowstoes , ILoveNailPolish and GirlyBits just to name a few.  I decided to use an oldie but goodie duochrome that I have in my stash to help me decide if I need to order any of the newly or to be released ones.  After wearing this, I placed orders (or am waiting to order a few as they are being released today...refresh, refresh, refresh!)  This is Sally Hansen Garnet Lapis.  I took at least 150 pix of Garnet Lapis and uploaded 56 for this post to see which ones I wanted to I type this I'm not sure what the final count of posted pix will be but I'm sure the post is going to be picture heavy!  Here's the various faces of Sally Hansen Garnet Lapis, three coats, no topcoat, in different lighting.

Stamped using assortment of images from Big SdP U using CND Gold Chrome.  I had a hard time getting the shift to be visible through the stamping but did manage a few.  Here's various pix in various lighting; I had a little polish smudge at the corners on a couple nails from not enough dry fact, even when this was top coated with SV, it still took forrrrrrrrevvvvvvvver to dry.

The enabler in me wants to share that Dashica Beauty has discounted stamping plates 30% until November 12!!!  Email your order to; make sure you mention DASH30%OFF in the subject line and in your email for the discount.

This is great news; I've never known Dashica Beauty to have a sale so if you have never order any of the plates....or want to add to your plate may be a good time to check it out!  I have 95% of the plates made (only a few of the last release I don't own) and I'm ordering them by the 12th to take advantage of the discount pricing.

Also, Dashica is releasing a new series of image plates called Infinity Nails.  Here's a preview of three plates of those scheduled to be released and there are plans for a total of 50 (!!!!!) .      

The scheduled release for these plates is early December.  I'll be sure to let Santa know that these will be on my wishlist and hopefully they will be under my tree come Christmas morning!!!

Lastly, followers will know that occasionally I do the odd random out of the blue giveaway for those who happen to see if when they read my blog posts regularly and happen to see it mentioned in my ramblings.  So this is one of those times!  There are a couple of the newer released Dashica plates that I haven't ordered yet and I'm going to add three Dash plates of your choice to my order for one lucky winner of this impromptu giveaway!  But there's even better news....especially if you like duochromes!  I happen to have extra bottles of a couple of the old Sally Hansen's prisms and I'm also going to include both Sally Hansen Garnet Lapis and Sally Hansen Golden Cinnabar as part of the giveaway!  So the winner of this giveaway will receive three Dashica Dash plates of their choice as well as both Sally Hansen prisms!!!!

The rules for this giveaway are simple.  Comment on this post only over the next 48 hours and you will be eligible.  The prize will be your choice of 3 of the Dash plates (these are the small rectangular plates...and you can pick any three from no. 1 to 60 (in case you want one of the previously released ones; must be in stock as I need to place my order by November 12!) as well as the two Sally Hansen Prisms shown.  I'll add the winners 3 picks to my order; and will ship to you when I've received them from Dashica.  I'll cut off the entries 48 hours from the time I publish this post and the winner will have just 24 hours to respond to the email sent (in case another needs to be drawn as my order has to be placed by November 12th!). You can see the plates here.  Just note in the comment section of this post your GFC follower name, your choice of the 3 Dash plates and an email address for contact purposes. Open internationally, see Giveaway Policy for any further details (except special 24 hour response needed). This giveaway is sponsored by me! I will not be advertising this impromptu giveaway any place but on my blog (edit and CNF's FB page!) and there's no need to announce it on your blog, or on facebook, or start following me on pinterest or any other forum as there's no extra entries to be obtained, just one comment will be permitted for an entry.  This is simply a thank you for those that regularly take the time to check out my blog! I do appreciate it!

  2. I generally follow you from bloglovin & had to read this post as I have the 4 ultra chromes from ILNP and just ordered a ton of her new holo polishes. I had no idea Sally Hansen had a dupe for some of those. This is a gorgeous polish and your images did it justice. And the stamping looks fantastic. I have a few CNDs but didn't know they stamped this well. Gonna have to check those out as well.
