Congratulations! Your prayers to the makeup Gods were answered! I will be contacting you shortly for your shipping information. :-)
For those of you who did not win, I'm already working on another giveaway for next month. :-) I will most likely include more jewelry as most of you seem to like what I make. Any suggestions? You can browse my eBay store and tell me what style you like the most to help me decide what I should offer: http://stores.ebay.com/Moon-Maiden-Jewelry
Thanks to everyone who entered and blogged about the giveaway. I'd also like to thank Melissa from Morgana Cryptoria for providing the lipsticks. They now have a happy home to go to. :-) ~BLIX
Normally I wouldn't take so many pictures of polish but this one looks so different depending on lighting and angles. Which I LOVE because I can't stop looking at it. Even in the bottle it's just gorgeous!
I achieved this look with:
1 coat of Avon's NAIL EXPERTS Smooth Beginnings Base Coat
1 coat of Avon NAILWEAR PRO Nail Enamel in Gunmetal (discontinued)
1 coat of Garnet Lapis (discontinued)
1 coat of Avon's NAIL EXPERTS UV Gloss Guard Top Coat
Using Avon's base and top coat has helped my polish last at least 4 days with no chipping. That says a lot since I work with my hands daily (I hand craft jewelry for a living in case you didn't know). When I clean my house, I wear those handy rubber gloves to keep my skin from drying out but it really helps the polish last longer too.
All pics were taken in natural indirect sunlight except the last one, which was taken with flash.
My husband Dj'd at a club last night. I did a very dramatic blue eyeshadow and glitter look for it. I have been in love Morgana's 1920's lipstick collection and wore Flirtatious Flapper again. :-)

My outfit for the night is really not normal for me. I prefer to wear dresses with cool tights and boots. But I recently got a kick ass pair of high heels with the COOLEST heels ever! So I took advantage of a chance to wear them with a short military style dress and diamond fishnets. I honestly felt like a slapper in this outfit...Like I said, I don't normally wear stuff like this!
