Nail Polish is the New Lipstick!

My Second Giveaway!

(2/22/14 to 3/7/14)

***Congrats to Ruth for winning this closed giveaway!! I hope you enjoy these great products!***


My word... it's been AGES and EONS since I last posted. Life has been crazy! I started a new job where I travel 80% of the time, so I tend to post product reviews and empties on the fly (aka: Instagram). I've had this giveaway up my sleeve for some time now, and I have to say it's one of my favorite things to do!

According to the NY Times, "Nail polish is the new lipstick!" I totally agree. Anyone else have a hard time not buying a polish every time you enter a Target, Walgreens or Sephora? 

So, here's to dolling up all your digits & doing it for FREE! I hope this means I'll be back in the beauty blog-world sooner rather than later, but we'll see...

What's in the giveaway, you ask?

Julep Glycolic Hand Scrub Giveaway
Julep Glycolic Hand Scrub ($23 value) - It's a facial for your hands!

Julep Polish in Melissa Giveaway
Julep polish in 'Melissa' - iridescent on it's own, or you can layer it over another polish.

Sonia Kashuk Fall in Love Limited Edition Giveaway
Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition "Fall in Love" polish set.

Here's how this works... Do one or all of these things below and then comment on what you did. Each one counts as an entry (once verified). I'll plug it all in to an excel doc (my favorite program Microsoft makes! No... I'm really serious. I LOVE excel docs) and then do a random # selector online. It ends on March 7th! This is open internationally, too!

  • Tweet this giveaway and tag @bandthebblog, so I can verify.

    I would love to see you blog about well... maybe have a Q and A about yourself? Like what do your friends think about your blog or your love for beauty products? Do your parents know about your blog? Can you see yourself still blogging in 2,5, or 10 years? What has been the most disappointing product you've ever bought? That type of thing (:
