    If i could have my own collection i'd base it on the area of England where I grew up, the Lake District. It would be a mix of cremes, like grass green, glitter-flecked cremes like a darker green with purple flecks of glitter to represent heather on the mountains, a blue-grey shimmer to represent the lakes and a blue-silver duochrome to represent the changing weather conditions...

  55. I'm already a follower and my email is

  56. I think if I were to make my own collection I'd have to make the colors inspired by the island I live on. There are so many greens from the forest, blues from the ocean, pinks and purples of the flowers, etc. It would be a peaceful, relaxed kind of color palette.

  57. I also added this contest to my blog's side bar:

  58. hiya! wow thanks for the great givaway! and I love the new layout...

    you know i'm following on gfc and my email is
    - I blogged about your giveaway at
    - I'm not sure what kind of line I would make, but I often look at cars and think 'wow that would make a great color polish!' (haha i guess that wouldn't sell very well!)
    - I really want to try American Apparel nail polishes although I don't shop there. they all look so delicious!

  59. I'm a follower. Email: dchen22 [at]

    If I were to make my own polish collection, I'd made a purple collection because it's my favorite color. There would be all types of shades from the palest lavendar to the deepest blackened purple. There would be shimmer, glitters, metallics, cremes, etc. It would be amazing!!

    I want to try Color Club and Orly, but haven't gotten to them yet.

    I'll be sending an email asap. :)

    3. If I could make a nail polish collection, I'd base it off of Marvel superheroes. Like, there would a polish for Wolverine, one for The Hulk, one for The Green Lantern, one for The Flash, one for Storm, one for Wonderwoman, and a bunch others. Then there'd be a sister collection, based off the Marvel villians. And in both collections, there would be every kind of finish, except for frost. I sent this idea to China Glaze like...a month ago, hoping that they would make it happen. So far, nada. LMAO!!

    4. I'd love love love to try Rescue Beauty Lounge. I just can't bring myself to buy any.

    5. I sent the email!

    Thanks for hosting this! :D

  61. Please enter me in your giveaway. I follow through google friend connect.

    I'm dying to try Etude House and I have some that are on their I can't wait.

    Since my favorite finishes are shimmers...I'd love to learn how to make my own line of shimmer polish - especially the kind that shimmers in a different color (but isn't a glitter), like some of the Zoya's out there.

    And this isn't a fair entry so don't count it but that picture I sent out on twitter when it was snowing in April or May or whatever...I'm very lucky to live in my dream vacation spot. However, I'd like to visit Sedona Arizona..never been and am curious of the redrocks and energy vortexes I hear about. ;)

  94. Hi!
    I'm a follower, via Google Friend Connect, my name's Arwen. I'd have to say that there are TONS of nail polish brands that I'm dying to try because since I live in Argentina the only international nail polish I can get my hands on are Maybelline, Rimmel and L'Oreal :P
    And if I'd have to create my only collection I think I'd be like a Guitar Hero for nails, as in, you'd have little collections inspired by different rock bands (pretty crazy, right?). And I'd probably have tons of mattes and flakies, cause those are the hardest to find where I live.
