500 Followers Contest Winners

It took me a little longer to complete the draw for my 500 Followers Contest than I'd expected. I wanted to be sure everyone had ten tickets to start with, that I wasn't excluding any entries that were valid, and that I was fairly weighting the entries for frequent commenters and early followers. I then used Random.org to generate numbers for each of the ten prizes and consulted the spreadsheet to find which entries those numbers corresponded to. Finally, I e-mailed the lucky winners, who are:

Prize #1, Sally Hansen assortment: Ping from Another Nail Blog

Prize #2, Wet 'n' Wild collection: Jo Tee

Prize #3, Across the Universe: Varnish Vixen

Prize #4, Paradoxal: Zara from Never Unpolished

Prize #5, Revlon glitters: alice.left

Prize #6, glow in the dark pumpkins: BV from Beauty Verdict

Prize #7, chunky glitter pumpkins: throuthehaze

Prize #8, Khaki vert: Jen from The PolishAholic

Prize #9, Borghese assortment: [see Holiday Giveaway post for an update]

Prize #10, Milani assortment: xtinaaj from Polishious

I'm happy to see that the random numbers resulted in a mix of winners: some people who've been following and/or commenting here since early on and some I've "met" much more recently, some people with blogs and some without, some names I recognize and some I don't, some in the U.S. and some not. Thanks to everyone who entered!

    I adore the little scary faces of the pumpkins... too bad I'm too old for the clubbing scene - this would have made a wild statement back in the day...
