One Year Blogiversary and Giveaway


Wow, I cannot believe it has been a year since I started blogging.... :)

The truth is, before I decided to open up a nail art blog of my own, I was a commited reader of all the lovely ladies of our community. Seeing their work has inspired me a lot, and I opened my blog on the 28th of January, 2012. 

My first posts were in Turkish, with horrible photos and not so good stamping... The only plates I had owned were some fauxnads... But I kept on trying... I ordered nice stamping polish, good quality plates... And I tried hard... :) If you look my older photos, you may see some improvement...

I joined several Facebook groups, where I met talented ladies that are willing to help to newbies... I started swapping with some, that's when I made some friends, too... And when I realised I had more international ladies following my blog, I decided to write in English... 

It is really relieving to have friends from all over the world sharing your passion... Thanks to them, I got my paws on most of my lemmings...

Anyway, I still have a lot to learn in the nail art area... I don't call myself an expert and most of all, I'm not trying to be "perfect". I may have flaws and sometimes I fail hard... (at nail art) But this doesn't stop me from blogging, because I enjoy what I do, and that's what counts... :)






Well, long story short, I decided to celebrate my Blogiversary with my faithful readers, who have been really supportive throughout the year...

I have two sets of gifts for you. I hope you like them... I'd love to offer more to my dear readers, but please bear in mind that I pay for my giveaways and that's what I could afford right now... :)

Set 1 is 4 Alix Avien Shine Plus minis.



Set 2 is 4 Pastel Scented Polish minis.
