My Season's Greetings Giveaway is over, but ASK Cosmetics is having one that runs until December 22nd. They're giving away a big prize package of their nail, skin and hair care products worth CAD$250. See Lisa's Nailcare Blog for details on how to enter. I am not affiliated with this company, but I might become so; I've read some good things about their nail conditioner and am hoping to get to try it out next year.


  1. Such a wide range of colors. And they are all lovely.

    If you ask me, I'd go with pinks, always. They are so pearly and girlie.

  2. My pocketbook thanks you that there are no lemmings with this post! Whew...that doesn't happen too often!

  3. I like the darker shades, I really need to do wheels like you! Would help my stash..

  4. Great swatches! I love the darker, vampier shades:)

  5. I love the shades from 13 on, I always seem to like the darker colors.

  6. WOw I love your wheels! perfect all around with the colors!

  7. I really like the Borghese polishes on this wheel!

  8. My favourites are dark shades, but the only one of these I own, too is Zoya Valerie (still untried: booo to me)!

  9. those wine colors look awesome :-D

  10. My favourites are OPI Pink Before You Leap and OPI Thoroughly Modern Millie
