Halloween Harvest Giveaway Winners

I've already heard back from all the winners of my Halloween Harvest Giveaway, so it's about time I announce them. As determined by random.org, here are the lucky entrants:

Prize #1: Ulta Glam Goth Minis went to Madeline of Girl Germs.

Prize #2: Ulta Ghoul's Best Friend Minis are heading to Anja in Serbia and Mihaela in Romania. Yes, you're reading that right; I ended up awarding two of this prize because I realized after I'd sent the winner notifications that I'd picked up the wrong e-mail from the Google Doc spreadsheet for this one. It was only proper that I get the prize to the right person, but it seemed crappy to say to "oops" to the first person and my Ulta still had a set of these left, thus two winners.

Prize #3: Studio M Fall Colors are going to live in California with Thuy, which is nice since Studio M usually has to stick around here in the Great Lakes and change of scene will be good for it.

Prize #4: China Glaze Glitters were won by Tracey, also in California.

Prize #5: Revlon Inspired by Chanel will be crossing the border to Canada to join Danielle of Polish Obssessed.

Prize #6: Pumpkins are also going to Canada, to be with Lindsey from Lindsey's Lacquer.

Prize #7: Sally Hansen Skull and Crossbones Strips are off to Wisconsin to join Leslie's stash.

The most popular prize choice was the China Glaze Glitters, followed closely by the Ulta Glam Goth set, then the Pumpkins and Studio M were neck and neck for third place. That all makes sense, since those are the ones that either aren't in available anymore or are available but not widely.

Thanks to everyone who entered! A special thanks also to those of you who regularly read my entries and comment—without you, doing this blog would be not nearly as much fun.

Did you like the 1st/2nd/3rd choice setup for this contest or do you prefer the raffle-style tickets option I've done before? Or something else entirely? Let me know in the comments, because I'm always adding things to my prizes box and they can't stay in my basement forever.

  12. I prefer the way you let us chose what we would like to win, it makes sense because if would suck to award someone polish they already own.

    Thanks again, can't wait for my Revlon's to arrive :) could not find Perplexed anywhere here in Canada and I almost bought it off of eBay just days before you sent me an email!
