get dollface nails in october!! aka i'm a WINNER!!!

hiya dollfaces!!! i am so EXCITED!!! if you recall, a few months ago i had entered the Illamasqua Design Your Own Nail Varnish Shade Contest. here's my entry... well guess what?! I WON!!!! to be precise i am one of three winners!! thank goodness for Scrangie's site! technically i found out through her. i was on holiday in san fransisco and came home to some comments on my original post saying congratulations! i immediately set out online to find more information and found nothing. however, upon closer look in my e-mail inbox i found this lovely letter...

Hi Ann
I wanted to congratulate you on being chosen as one of our winners for the Illamasqua Nail Varnish Competition 2010!

We had thousands and thousands of entries, but your entry was deemed to be superior. We have known for about a month so apologies for the delay, but we wanted to make sure that our supplier could match the colour as best they could before announcing the winners. We received our final sign-off sample [ie the colour we are now happy with] today and have requested the first samples of the colour to be sent to us in the next couple of weeks.

As soon as I receive these I will send you a couple of your chosen colour - I think you will be delighted as we are with the final outcome.

Again, congratulations. We loved your colour so much that we shot it on our models nails in the campaign for Autumn Winter 2010 [which will be released at the beginning of September] and will also be gifting the press with your extraordinary colour; who knows, it could end up in Elle, Vogue or InStyle!

I will get in touch once I know when the varnishes will be shipped to you.

Best wishes, and once again congratulations :-)

can you imagine?!!

i guess they had over 6,000 entries! and in october you, too, can own raindrops!! i will show you all the samples i receive from illamasqua, but here is a photo from scrangie's blog.
