10 Year Blog Anniversary | Stella Chroma

by Lisa Heath

Giveaway Items Gifted by Stella Chroma

Happy Thursday! It was a long week this week at work and a little at home. I had a wicked migraine yesterday so I was off work for the day and slept until almost 2pm. I was back at work today, and things have been hectic but I’m still chuggin along. Today we’re taking a look at the stunning creation Pam of Stella Chroma created for my 10 Year Blog Anniversary!

Pam is another maker I’ve worked with for several years… back before she was STELLA Chroma. Her brand used to be Paint Box Polish (for those who were around back then!) and when I saw this polish I was so thrilled with it! Pam does such a variety of finishes, and she does so well at them… I can’t pinpoint her “specialty” she’s constantly doing something different and it always looks so dang good.

Now a little about what’s going on with this month:

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 | Stella Chroma

Cosmetic X is a medium gold metallic base with gold and copper shimmer and flecks, as well as black matte glitters ranging from micro to medium in size. 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 each day . 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 Pam for the years of working together, and I look forward to more! I couldn’t be happier with your creation!

Cosmetic X is a stunning polish- I’d love to try it!

Jennifer Lee January 20, 2022 - 11:53 pm

Pam makes beautiful polishes, and stunning multichromes too. (One of my fave finishes). My absolute top Stella Chroma is Cherry Blossom. I don’t know how to explain how absolutely perfect it is. She brings class and beauty to every polish she makes. She’s very much under appreciated imo but Lord knows those of us who adore her are lifers! =)

Oh my gosh this is GORGEOUS!! And I love the name; some of the makers are coming up with names that just hit me, this is another one. My favorite Stella Chroma, and I must have a type because it’s a bit similar, is Do It Again Old Fashioned. I love Cherry Blossom, the classic Summer Sandals and Crown of Roses. And I love most how Stella Chroma donates portions of her sales to STEM programs geared to young girls with interests in those fields.

Anna Antipenko January 21, 2022 - 6:55 am

My favorite is Who’s the Drizzle? Followed by Fountains of Fair Fortune.

Michelle Feudo January 23, 2022 - 9:53 pm

I have not yet tried Stella Chroma, but I’ve had my eye on Mid Level Shear. Her polishes are all so varied and so beautiful.

I want to try this incredible celebratory polish!!

Wendy Curtis January 26, 2022 - 12:29 am

I would have to say Fountain of Fair Fortune, is my favourite Stella Chroma, one of my very first Ppu purchases.
Love using it as a topper to switch up any other polish and as it is, on its own, is really pretteee too.

Happy Anniversary.

Kathy January 24, 2022 - 4:16 pm

I love the monthly Stella mystery polishes. Beautiful polishes every time.

Erin M January 24, 2022 - 6:23 pm

Hard to narrow down just one favorite polish. I guess I’ll go with the one i wore most recently– corporate magazines still suck, from ppu, inspired by nirvana & kurt cobain. Love it. Also, i cannot live without Pam’s emulsified sugar scrubs. I keep one at every sink in the house– 3 bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry room. My husband even loves them and uses them regularly!

Tanyatopia January 24, 2022 - 9:05 pm

Appropriate Pam made a gold for you, May the Schwartz Be With You is among my favorites in my entire collection.

Aya January 24, 2022 - 9:10 pm

I have “Do This Again. Old Fashioned” and it looks like UP on steroids <3

Chris R January 24, 2022 - 9:47 pm

I would really like to try this one. It’s GORGEOUS!

I was just looking at her website and wow! There are a lot of beautiful polishes I would love to try Wild Blooms.

Erica Drouin January 27, 2022 - 10:54 am

Stella Chroma creates amazing shimmers. I was just looking online at the website. Gahhhh! Lovely!!

Aya January 26, 2022 - 9:24 am

I’ve been thinking about getting their monthly mysteries. I only have one of their polishes but I loved the formula!

Debra Lucas January 26, 2022 - 12:17 pm

This polish is so festive. I would love to try Stella Chroma.

McBeagle Ally January 26, 2022 - 2:54 pm

I have two favorites – Ride Sally Ride from the Jan 2020 PPU, Written in the Stars theme and inspired by Sally Ride, the first woman in space. Spin Me Round is a stellar (stella?) multichrome that shifts silver to green to purple. The green shift is very metallic looking and it’s one of the few polishes with green that I love. This gold for your anniversary is perfect, the label on the bottom is perfect!!

Marilynn M Schroeder January 27, 2022 - 6:09 pm

While I love sinking sun , I wish I had gotten Cherry Blossom too!

diagonelly January 27, 2022 - 8:02 pm
