10 Year Blogaversary Giveaway | Bee’s Knees Lacquer

by Lisa Heath

Giveaway Items Gifted by Bee’s Knees Lacquer

Happy Friday and Happy New Years Eve! Today is my official 10 Year Blogaversary, and we’re kicking the giveaway off with the Bee’s Knees Lacquer donation!

10 years ago I sat down and made my first blog post. In 10 years I have typed up 3,680 blog posts. I have uploaded 96,833 photos. I have watched indie brands come and go and there’s been a lot of good times and bad.

I have had a lot of opportunities, both with indies and sponsored content. In 10 years I have had partnerships with some incredible brands and makers, but I’ve also had some unfortunate dealings with makers (I will never forget the time a brand knew I was home with a 103 temp and demanded I go “fetch” her package at my work cause she needed photos NOW and confirmation showed it was just delivered.) But overall the good has outweighed the bad and I am forever thankful for the chances I have been given and the mistakes I have learned from.

My son was starting Kindergarten when this blog was made, he’s now a sophomore in high school. Where I was once balancing a full time job, raising an incredible little boy and blogging – I am now really just balancing a full time job and blogging because he’s almost 16 doesn’t need mom as much (but I still drop everything when he wants to do something with this old lady) I was 29 when I made my first post and now I’m pushing 40 (in March!)

There were many times I considered throwing in the towel, but I still enjoy doing this too damn much.

So 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. If you are a maker and would like to participate and missed the original post – email me at [email protected]

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 Blogaversary Giveaway | Bee’s Knees Lacquer

Sarah of Bee’s Knees Lacquer created a custom polish with a medium grey jelly base loaded with strong gold to pale copper to green shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This one is unnamed, so I will probably name it and send it off – I just don’t know what to name it. Probably something like “10 Year Blog Anniversary” cause I’m creative like that.

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.

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 to Sarah of Bee’s Knees Lacquer for your donation and for working with me for the past few years. Thank you to all the readers, or the people who randomly pop in, for stopping by.

Wow 10 years!! It’s about an 8 year blog-a-versary for me right now, and I haven’t done a tenth what you manage in just one year! Congrats on the huge milestone!

For Bee’s Knees, I gotta go pretty old skool – House on Haunted Chill remains a serious fave! But SS Georgie gives it a solid run for the money.

Reply
Irma December 31, 2021 - 3:45 pm

BKL has so many gorgeous polishes, so it’s hard to pick just one. One of my favorites that I use a lot and had to buy an extra bottle of is When All Is Blood.

Kirstie Carter December 31, 2021 - 3:48 pm

I don’t know if I can truly pick a favorite, but “One Human Alcohol Beer” has become iconic for my friend and I. We share a love for BKL and What We Do in The Shadows, and this polish is probably among the top 3 favorites of all polishes among all brands for both of us. She recently moved to another country, so this polish is even more special as in a way it connects us from oceans apart.

I have an extensive BKL collection & to pick a favorite would be really difficult. But I’ll have to say Chewnicorn…it was my first & I’ve actually worn it twice or even *gasp* three times. Also Suberb Owl because when I figured out the name, I laughed & laughed.

Thank you so much, Lisa, for your blog. I only learned about indie polish in 2020 so I hope you’ll be around for a while.

I mean… who can’t love BKL’s Lion with a Thorn in its Paw? It’s stunning. As is this one for your blog! (Can I suggest “10 Year Blog Bog” as a name, since it’s a beautiful bog-gy green?)

Happy anniversary! I have always appreciated the quality, consistent photos and helpful descriptions you provide. I am a fan of all the BKL polishes I own (and several I WISH I owned!) but from a usage perspective, ‘Byss and Blood tops my list. I’ve worn it alone, over red creme, and as part of a tortoiseshell mani! Such a lovely and versatile color and formula!

Bee’s Knees is one of my most owned brands so it’s basically impossible to choose. I would say it’s a tie between Valkyries, Fine Make Me Your Villian, and Shark Bait (but I could name a good 15 more that make my jaw drop). Congrats on a decade!

Your blog helps us so much every single moth to make sure we get the polishes that we need. BKL is an incredible brand and it’s difficult to choose a favourite polish. I think it is probably Eve at the moment.
