"The Scariest Bottle of Nail polish in the USA"(TM)
Do you own a scary looking bottle of nail polish?
You do? Would you like to have some new pretty polish to replace it?
Of course you would!
Check this out!
Warning, you will see my scary nail polish bottle.
Do you have a polish bottle which is an insult to the world of beauty? I do.
I wonder if yours is uglier than mine. I recently destroyed a bottle of DS sapphire while trying to "fix" a stuck top by using remover to clean the neck of the bottle. When I spotted my treasured DS sapphire the next day, I couldn't believe my eyes, and I immediately grabbed it and tried to shake it back to life. Hahahaha.
Are you sure you want to see this? Okay, scroll down then.
OMFG. What was I thinking here? I am sorry if you are grossed out, but I am trying to prepare you for scary nail polish by desensitizing you.
Here it is, what do you think, is it scary?
Here it is, or was, DS Sapphire. All the holo particles died and made a sludge on the bottom, separating from the murk.
Please, remember to hug your OPI polishes when you put them away, you never know when you will be seeing them for the last time!
If anyone else enters with a scary bottle, I will disqualify myself in this contest for the title of Scariest Bottle of Nail Polish in the USA, and award this dubious distinction to someone else. Otherwise, you are looking at it!
If you want a chance to win, simply pick your ugliest polish and post a picture of it and provide me with a link either in the comments below or by clicking the inlinkz button at the end of the post. I will also choose one winner at random, so you can win even if it isn't the very worst looking polish bottle.
I would only request that you please not do anything to the bottle as it exists currently, simply pick up the polish from your stash and photograph it however you want. Swatches optional!
If there is an interesting story about your ugly polish bottle or how it got that way I would be interested to hear about the fate of the polish. I love polish stories. This will not affect the outcome of the judging though, it is based on the photo of the bottle.
I will crown what I adjudge to be the scariest bottle of polish and announce the winners on Halloween, October 31st, 2012.
To replace your ugliest polish bottle, FOUR pretty bottles! 2011 holiday wet n wild color icon nail colors in the shades: from L to R: Diamond in the Rough, Rockin' Rubies, Back Alley Deals, All in the Cut.
Diamond in the Rough is a close dupe for one of the new Fergie polishes.
It's All in the Cut is a "surpriser". These holos you see here only come out to play in BRIGHT lights. This one surprised me when I bought it and the medium glittters looked pale pink in the store, then when I saw it in the sun, I was surprised!
And I will send another winner chosen at random two Milan Jewel effects polishes in Gold and Silver. I previously swatched the silver here.
Rules and conditions:
This contest is open to residents of at least 18 years of age in the continental USA only : ( I I am sorry if this means you are not able to win.
