Win Shellac for life!!!

Hello to my lovely readers

I recently read Jayne at cosmetic proof 's blog and found out about this fantastic giveaway!  I just had to enter.  Who wouldn't love to be able to do shellac nails on yourself???

And they last for up too 2 weeks.

Here is what we are looking at:

Now I thought seriously about not sharing this with you guys because I figured, the less people who entered, the more of a chance I would win.  (haha)

But I couldn't do that to my lovely readers.

Rachel, over at nail polish Canada sent over a press release outlining the details of the giveaway:

“To be fair, it’s actually only a 25 year supply, so we can only hope the winner dies early to keep me an honest woman” - Nikki Smith, VP of Glitter, Nail Polish Canada.

CND Shellac is a cross between nail polish and gel which is cured under a UV lamp and lasts up to 14 days without chipping.

Chipped nails are an important issue that affect lives in many ways. “We’ve invented substantial research and the reason women slap or bite in a catfight is fear of chipping their nails. Hopefully, together, we can build a world where a woman can throw a punch at the bitch who kissed her boyfriend without worrying about chips” said Ms. Smith

The prize will go to whomever can show that their life will be most impacted by winning Shellac for life.
Be it better, or worse.

Maybe it stops your polish addiction long enough that you can save money, go to school, become a doctor, go to Africa and start saving lives. Did we say that this contest saves lives? Now we did.
Or maybe you’re just looking for a little understanding, “My husband will finally understand that other people take polish as seriously as me...” - Sarah P.”
Or perhaps the result won’t be as positive, “I’ll probably spend all my time painting my nails, not go to work, get fired, now I’m homeless, damn you NPC.” - Beth C”
If you or a loved one is still stuck in a world of chips, smudges and wasting countless hours re-doing nails we urge you to take a stand.

Grand prize will go to the best description of how winning a lifetime supply of Shellac will change their life. 
Winner selected August 7, 2012.

Prize Details & Entry
Grand Prize (Value $1266): 33 Bottles of CND Shellac + 36 Watt UV Lamp + 5 Topcoat + 5 Basecoat + Scrub Fresh.
How much Shellac do I need to last 25 years?
1300 (weeks in 25 years) / 2 (weeks application lasts) / 20 (applications per bottle) = 33 bottles of Shellac color
Open to Canadian and United States residents only.

So, overall I think the idea for the contest is rather ingenious, and they show some of the other peoples entries.  Now, if you think this is for you, don't be afraid to head on over and tell Nail Polish Canada how a lifetime of shellac could change your life.

Again, the LINK to enter.

Good luck!



  1. I entered and they also contacted me to post about it but in the end, it excludes residents of Quebec... Too bad eh. Shellac is pretty cool!
