10 Year Blog Anniversary | Colores de Carol

by Lisa Heath

Giveaway Items Gifted by Colores de Carol

I’m still running giveaways for my blog anniversary, I know they are more sporadic than I intended but work and a few things here caused a small delay. I still do have several beautiful customs to giveaway though! Tonight we’re looking at my 10 Year Blog Anniversary custom from Colores de Carol!

I love the name for this one! Now, I actually knew Carolina as a swatcher/blogger before she was a maker. It wasn’t until PPU was around that I started swatching for her, but I have been showcasing her PPU shades now for a few years and watching her brand grow.

A little about these posts if you just found them (and because I am behind posting):

To celebrate my 10 years of constant posts – I have asked for maker volunteers to create a custom polish for a series of giveaways! Each maker donated at least 2 bottles of a custom – one for me to swatch and keep for the milestone and one to giveaway. 

While they made the custom for my blog – makers were given permission to release the custom at a later date. Not all will do this – some literally made it but didn’t save a recipe while others do intend to release it later. So I did make sure there was no exclusivity to the polish, and it’s up to the makers discretion.

Each maker had free rein to create what they wished to. I am a swatcher and not a maker for a reason and each individual maker has their own signature touch.

10 Year Blog Anniversary | Colores de Carol

One Does Not Simply Reach 10 Years of Blogging! (seriously I love this name) is a black jelly base with aqua to blue to violet shifting magnetic pigment, scattered holo, a rainbow assortment of multichrome flakes and silver holo flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The Rules for The Giveaway

I will have a new giveaway up every few days . Because of my schedule – I will draw winners for all giveaways ending that previous week on Sunday nights. I have each item in my possession so I will contact each winner for shipping information and then ship within 5 business days of receiving the shipping information.

To check out other active giveaways for this celebration – head here: https://www.cosmeticsanctuary.com/category/giveaway/current-giveaways/

I will only display the winners name on the widget AFTER the winner has responded to my email notifying they have won. I will be emailing from [email protected] – so please make sure the email is not in spam. If I have not received a response in 10 business days, I will draw a new winner and previous winner will forfeit their prize.

I display the names after because I have had people try to create emails and claim to be the winner before.

I will provide tracking for each winner. I am not responsible for lost or stolen packages. Once I ship, it’s out of my hands and I do not have replacement bottles.

Giveaway is open to EVERYONE. I will ship internationally for this because I want everyone who has followed along with me over the last 10 years to have a chance. Again though, if the package is missing, lost, stolen or confiscated on the way – I am not responsible for it and I will not be replacing.

I have made entering requirements easy. There are mandatory entries and one optional. The optional is only if you want an additional entry. The mandatory one you can come back daily to do as well if you wish to for more entries.

If you have additional questions, please email me at [email protected] and I will be happy to answer.

Thank you so much Carolina for creating this stunning shade and for for working with me for all these years!
